I got these to catch gravel and clay cat litter in my garage, and they do an excellent job. The only drawback is that particles tend to STAY in the mat; they drop down deep into the fiber network and will not be shaken or vacuumed out. Overall, though, these mats do what I wanted them to do: stop people and cats tracking gravel-sized particles into my house.
This mat arrived in three days and it is exactly as depicted. The fibers feel soft underfoot and it is of high quality. I was looking for a rug that would withstand the high traffic area in my hallway between the entryway and the kitchen and wanted something that would also look nice, so I did not want a rug that looked like the standard commercial entry mat, but would perform like one. I looked in a lot of places both online and brick and mortar and did not find what I was looking for. This mat fits the bill. It is dark enough so dirt won't show, yet there are enough colorful flecks that it fits in a home setting (my entryway and kitchen have black and white tiles). The rubber backing keeps the rug in place, no slipping, etc. and it lies flat. Having the mat in the transition area between the entryway and the rest of the house definitely keeps my floors cleaner, so it does it job perfectly. Compared to others I looked at, the price is very good as well. I am very satisfied with this mat.
