If you fish mud it will show dirt more than the Grey. If you fish mostly sandy soils it is actually cleaner. With Rangers carpet the tan and the grey are very easy to keep clean. The tan is a little cooler than the grey. I had a lund with tan and hated the carpet in the boat. I swore I wouldn't own another tan carpet again. When I found this boat it was to good of a deal to pass up so I bought it. I can honestly say that I don't see much difference between the two unless you are a slob in the boat. Tan is more of a natural color in nature so most items actually don't show that much. Blood is a different story and when I get it in the boat I just dump a little water and rub it in. This carpet wont stain like Lund's. If Lund were to upgrade the carpet in their boat the perception of quality would go way up. I wouldn't hesitate at all to order tan. I had a 620 with dark grey in it before this one and it showed all the sand and lint and leaves in the boat. Its a horse a piece.
