Rated 5 out of 5 by naturally Bring back the other leaf pattern
These floor mats are the best available, but am very disappointed that the other leaf pattern was discontinued. Do not like the new designs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by maryspat Rubber Backing Has Changed
I have purchased 5 of these rugs in the last 2 years and have been extremely satisfied. I purchased 3 more in November '14 and have found the rubber backing has changed. Maybe LLBean has switched their manufacturer or quality control has relaxed. The backing is thinner, poorly applied, and "softer". I returned them for replacements. The replacements are better than the first 3, but still not the quality expected. I'm now wondering if I rec'd defective merchandise or a "new" version of LLBeans Waterhog. Or is the issue just with certain styles. If I were to buy as a gift, I would have them shipped to me rather than recipient, so as to check them for defects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mommy2girls Finally!!
I have wanted a Waterhog mat for years, but felt I couldn't justify the cost. Every winter I'd head to the local store to pick up yet another mat. They slipped and slid all over, snow and water would still get tracked in because the mats just could not handle an upstate New York winter (or the mud season that comes after!) Last week I finally said enough and purchased two of these mats. I have been so pleased with them! They really keep the snow and wet contained and look beautiful at the same time. I do love the leaf pattern which I think is less "institutional" looking than the other patterns avalible. I do see it's mostly sold out now and I'm hoping it's not because they are doing away with this pattern. If anything I'd like to see some bigger options in this pattern, because I'd purchase a larger mat for my foyer. Great purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MAmom2 Bring back evergreen color
Got one of these 10 years ago for our wedding. It is still going strong. Decided to purchase another for our other door and was VERY disappointed to find the green is now Cactus, no longer Evergreen. Besides the fact we cannot match our two carpets, we don't like the new green. The carpets are great, but we'll wait to buy another until the old green color is back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BakingMom Both functional and attractive.
I purchased this last year for our entry way and don't know why I waited so long to do so (well, yes I do, the cost). The blue is a tad more subdued than depicted in the picture, which is a good thing. It is absolutely the best carpet I've ever had there and doesn't ruin the hard wood floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovetheoutdoors2 2 years and still looks good
I bought this mat 2 years ago in green and placed it at my front door which gets a lot of foot traffic. It still looks as good as it did when I first laid it down. It traps leaves and pet hair. It's easy to clean with a vacuum, and a couple times a year I take it outside and hose it down and let it dry. It still looks like new. I absolutely love it, and highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mrsbecky Dog owner
I bought this rug because it doesn't have braiding around the edges, My dog chews the braiding off...This rug is great. It has no braiding and it is so heavy that the dog doesn't bother with it. The leaf design is pretty and I plan to buy another one. It is rather pricey, but the quality is better than any rug I have ever had, It looks great on my wood floor,

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rindy Great cleaning tip!
You can't go wrong with this mat, may be expensive, but it should last you a lifetime! I didn't like how hard it was to clean, but I solved that problem. Take it to the self cleaning car wash! They have hooks to hang your car mats which makes it even easier. It came out looking brand new! I've had it many years and I'm so happy getting it took look like I just bought it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gebbie Gorgeous, sturdy, & easy to care for
I've had these rugs in our foyer for 10 years in an area where salt is tracked in. What doesn't come out with vacuuming is easily hosed out. They still look new! I recently bought them for our dining room to replace the area rugs that are such a nuisance to maintain & plan to buy them for the hallway to the back yard. They're pricey but well worth it when you think about the money saved over the years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by coldincalif Waterhog Indoor Doormat, Leaf Pattern 32" x 56"
Bought one of these in the color "Cactus" for the door in my kitchen that leads outside. Prior mat there was old and wrecked and desperately needed to be replaced. Being I've had great luck with the Waterhog mats, I decided to buy one for the indoor in this leaf pattern. The "Cactus" color I would describe as GREEN.
It is a lovely indoor mat and picks up the debris coming from outside (I have three cats that love to run in and out when the weather is good) so the area receives a lot of traffic.
The only reason I give in 4 stars rather than 5 stars is because I find it to be a bit more difficult to clean that the boot mat (aka Everywhere mat) type of Waterhog mat being sold here on L.L. Bean.
I am glad I purchased this rather than another boot mat for this specific area in the kitchen as it looks just lovely, brightens up the kitchen and I know it will last for a long time given my experiences with these Waterhog mats in the past.
Another great thing about these mats is ... they are Made in the USA! YES! :)
