I bought this mat to cover more of the area inside my front door during this winter's unrelenting snows. I needed area for snowy shoes to come in, be removed, and be set to one side -- all on the rug. It may not be firm enough with bristles to be the best-of-the-best walk-off mat, defined as a mat that removes mud and debris from shoes just by walking across the mat. It's great for providing a large, attractive, waterproof barrier at a doorway.
This mat is holding up nicely in a mountain area, by our front door. Collects dirt in the summer and snow in the winter. Helps to keep the mess in our entryhall only.
We bought this mat to be used in front of our stove. It is very lightweight and will need a pad underneath otherwise it will move around. There isn't much padding but that's not what we wanted or expected.
