Rated 4 out of 5 by Cliffy46 Great mat - color isn't
This is my second water hog doormat and I love them. But the color khaki that I ordered is definitely not a khaki in my opinion. It's got a green hue to it and I was hoping for more brown hues. So if color is important, think about your choice,

Rated 5 out of 5 by InternationalTexan Great for the entryway
I bought the blue mat to put in the entry way of my condo to trap dirt and to absorb snow in the winter. I had another waterhog mat that was great, but just not big enough for the entry way when entering with snowy boots. This mat is big enough to stretch across the whole entry way, making it easier to come in with snow on your boots without tracking it on the wood floor. It was exactly what I was looking for!

I ordered this doormat in dark green for the area inside my sunroom door. It's a high traffic area and I could not be more pleased with the performance of the mat so far. The rubber backing grips the hardwood floor so there is no shifting as people walk in and out. The mat traps leaf pieces and dirt and is easily cleaned with my vacuum cleaner. I'm anxious to see how the mat handles snow in a few weeks. I'm planning to order at least one more Waterhog for other doors in my house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BevFromFla As good as they say it is!
I have two of these doormats now and intend to order another for my front door area, inside. I don't use them outside, I never intended to.
My problem was with wet feet inside the doorway. They work very well. We are messy gardeners, and beachy people. We also have lots of rain and mushy areas outside our doors. Because of all that and animals thrown in for good measure, we needed something special. I think we found it with these doormats. No longer do we track our messy footprints throughout the house. Nor do the cats and dog. But besides that, the cats use them as scratching mats, which is horrible I know. But so far you can't even tell. Leaves, and cat and dog hair get stuck on them all the time, but come off very easily with a sweep of the broom. I don't know where the wet goes, but it doesn't end up on the floor. I haven't seen any nasty mildew either. Probably all of this would be different if they were used as outdoor mats, but that's not why I bought them. I expect them to last a long, long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by janetaz Love these mats!
This is my third mat. These mats clean and vacuum up great. I just take them outside and hose them off. I put this one at my back door. Funny, it came on the day that we had a rare, huge rain in Phoenix. I have 4 dogs that take joy in running thru the mud. These mats help so much with getting that 'top' layer of mud off their paws as they come into the house. My floors fare so much better with these mats as a buffer.The khaki, which I got is a very light brown, no beige. My goal is to have one at every entrance to my home. They do not wear out or get gross.I think they are worth every penny. LLbean is the tops for durable, high quality items and the customer service can't be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by naplover Will last a long time
I like how this rug isn't so thick that the bottom of the door rubs against it. I think it's 1/4 of an inch thick. I think it will last a long time. I decorate with leaf prints a lot and so I like how the rug has that design too. If it gets dirty then I'll wash it outside and let it drip dry as stated. I bought the green.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BonsaiGal Really Grabs and Holds the Dirt
I bought this rug for inside my back door. I use that door daily to go outside and water plants. Previous to this purchase I was always tracking dirt into the house. This rug GRABS and HOLDS the dirt better than any mat I've ever had. The combination of the slightly rough texture and the lower spaces built into the mat work wonderfully!The dirt doesn't move until I vacuum it off. Though this rug is intended to run vertically into a space. I use it horizontally in front of my door so I can leave my garden clogs on it next to the door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LizHH Waterhogs are the best!
I bought the large indoor rug for our mudroom last year and loved it so much I bought a smaller outdoor one for our front door. Just placed an order for 3 more- 2 large indoor and the mudhog for our garage/mudroom entry.
The indoor rug still looks as good as they day it was delivered, and really helps keep the mud and rocks out of the house. My husband does a lot of landscaping, and is forever coming into the mudroom covered in mud, with dirty boots. Our daughter and her friends track in a fair amount of dirt, as well.
It is so easy to clean- I vacuum it as needed, and take it outside periodically to shake it out. I'll hose it down at the end of summer, to get ready for fall and winter detritus!
I'm replacing 2 cotton rugs with the 2 indoor Waterhogs- the cloth rugs always look dirty, no matter how much I wash or shake them out. Really looking forward to the no-muss look (and care) of the new Waterhogs, which do a much better job of keeping debris out of our house!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Toffs LOVE this mat!!!
I was a little unsure of this doormat, and not sure I wanted to pay this much for a small mat. I took the plunge and bought it anyway. Great purchase! I LOVE the mat! At first, I wasn't sure if it was picking up any dirt, but then picked it up to take outside and shake and out came all kinds of sand and dirt! I know it soaks up the water because I have set my winter boots on the very edge of it after being out on a snowy day and there is not a drop that hits the floor. The mat stays in place and I can run my vacuum over it and get most of the dirt and leaves off of it. I take it outside and shake it out occasionally too, and plan to hose it down and use some mild soap and a brush as some other reviewers mentioned. I plan to buy the larger mat for my front entryway next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tchow Great at the back/side door
A good looking rug that does its job ... with three grandkids and a visiting Lab a lot can happen at the door .... mat catches the dirt etc and is big enough to hold all the shoes at the door when taken off. Looks good on entry .... have two other mats ... a smaller one at the garage entry which is doing its job as well ... keeping grime out of the laundry area .... a new 1/2 moon for outside which still has to be tested but looks good on the deck/patio ...
