I had a rear gear liner for my previous vehicle. But they didn't make one for my new Pacifica. So I tried the canvasback.
Both the rear gear and this canvasback are great- I work as an environmental consultant so I need to occasionally throw some slop in the back of the vehicle and need something to keep the cargo area clean. I had my last vehicle for 6 years and when I went to trade it in I just took the rear gear out and it was as good as the day I bought it.
The canvasback I actually prefer to the rear gear. Both are nice and heavy duty material that cleans right off. But canvas back just covers the carpeted areas and so is a bit more fitted and neat looking. The rear gear goes up the sides of the cargo area to cover the plastic bits. I thought I'd miss that but after having he canvas back for a while I prefer not having that. The plastic wipes right up so there's no real need for me to cover it and it just looks much neater and more polished with the canvasback.
A couple minor things they could make better- the pacifica like many vehicles has a small compartment under the cargo floor- I keep my towing ball and some cleaning supplies in there so i occasionally want to get in there. The canvas back covers the floor perfectly and sticks down to the carpet with Velcro-like strips sewed in. They hold it in place really good. Bad side of that is when you want to get into the little storage compartment you have to rip it up off the carpet- I'm a little weary the carpet is going to get warn or fuzzy in those areas like used Velcro loops gets over time.

The Pacifica has a flap that folds off one of the second row seats so that when seats are folded flat the depression over the center console can be made perfectly flat. The canvasback people even included a cover for that! My minor complaint is the instructions were very generic so it took some trial and error to figure out how to attach it all so the fo
