Need suggestion for Cargo mat?

I purchased weathertech cargo mat from amazon and I'm not really happy with it.
The side wall is wrinkles. It doesn't look good.
Any recommendations beside weathertech?

I have the OEM one and I like it. I'm surprised Weathertech isn't top-notch to be honest.

The OEM one. It has folds in it to allow folding of third row and opening of cargo cubby in the floor.

I also have the OEM. It's great when you need to unfold the third row or access the cubby.

Husky Weatherbeater. I've had Weathertech and Husky, and in my opinion, the Huskys are better: more coverage area, black looks black (not dark gray), cargo tray has consistent-high sidewall all the way around (unlike Weathertech).

The advantage of the OEM one is that if you do put the third row up you do not have to leave your cargo liner at home. It also folds up and fits into the cubby totally hidden away whereas the Husky and Weathertec has to be totally removed from the car when third row is up.

One thing I don't like about the OEM mat is the velcro on the underside. When you try to remove the mat, the velcro tears at the felt on the 3rd row seat backs leaving a very visible mark. I was actually thinking of returning it and getting a Weathertech but after reading the OP's comments on it, I'm not sure what to do now. I know the velcro is there to keep it from sliding but I wish it wouldn't damage the felt seat backs in the process. Has anyone else experienced the same issue as me?

The other thing I don't like is that it does not have a high sidewall. I think I'm going to return the OEM one since I just put it in my Pilot for the first time yesterday.

Simple solution to your problem. Duct tape the velco. The mat will slide a bit but you won't destroy your seats.

I peeled the Velcro off mine and removed the sticky residue with rubbing alcohol. It slides around a bit but it's not that big of a problem.

I also have the OEM tray. I covered the velcro with felt pad strips. Also added strips to other parts of the tray to create a little more friction. It may slide a little every so often, but I'm pretty happy with it.

We usually have the third row folded flat. Bought the weather tech that covers cargo area with the third row folded down. Very heavy duty mat. Obviously if you use your third row, you may want to consider something other than this one.

Do you mind to share how weather beater look like in your pilot?

Love the OEM tray but I am going to put female Velcro on the installed hooks so I don't wreck my seat backs.

I just leave the OEM cargo mat in all the time. I thought that was how it was intended to be installed (as indicated by the fact that it folds to allow the third row to go up and to access the underneath bin), hence the strong velcro.
