I’ll opt for the all weather mats, which are in addition to, not instead of the Chilewich. I live where we have snow 5 months out of the year, plus I spend a lot of time on dirt roads, so rubber mats are much better for me.

I'll be doing the same. All weather mats are essential for winter in Michigan.

Do we know what type of surface is under the mats?
Is it carpet or hopefully some sort of rubberized surface that wash right off?
I would REALLY like a high-quality printed vinyl type of material with a matte finish. I've seen it on several prototype electrical vehicles and it's awesome. I think carpet is really dumb in an adventure vehicle.

I'm with you 100%. Carpet is a horrible idea for a vehicle that might be getting muddy inside...no question rubber mats are best as they clean super easy and look solid, too.

I'm actually referring to the flooring, not the mats. I've seen it in most prototypes. They can print any pattern, the coolest I've seen looks like wood flooring. The Chilewich mats would look GREAT on top of it.

Although considered an Adventure Vehicle, I would be willing to bet that 90% of us as with most will be using our vehicles to get to and from our 9 to 5's. That being said, I would imagine that after getting off from work you'd appreciate a peaceful, quiet drive home. Therefore, a well insulated, possibly carpeted interior as well as nice rubber floor mats would provide excellent sound proofing and protection.

Both look great IMO. I have rubber mats in my order (delivery scheduled in a few short weeks) and am just hoping that the Chilewich ones are easily removable. My plan is to run with the Chilewich mats during everyday use and just swap the rubber mats when I'm headed for adventure. Hoping that isn't a PITA
