The Original Mat is the only outdoor mat available on the market that features patented sand-free technology, and we only make it one way: to standards that reflect our military roots. CGEAR’s patented technology is a system of precisely engineered layers of high-density weave that allows particles of sand, dirt, and dust to fall through the fabric without being able to come back up. This was originally developed for military helicopters in desert warzones. Later, it was used for military drones before expanding to the civilian market. The Original Mat is UV stabilized to prevent fading, is fast drying, and resistant to water. It features reinforced seams as well as double-reinforced, heavy-duty corner D rings, which allow it to be affixed to the ground quickly, easily, and securely, even in adverse conditions. The Original Mat is perfect for true outdoors people who demand durability and versatility in everything they own. It works great as a ground mat when camping, backpacking, and RVing. It’s also useful as a picnic, camp, and beach blanket. Whether it’s protecting your cameras all through an outside shoot, or providing a sand-free pad for you and your friends to enjoy at a concert, the Original Mat will serve all of your needs for years yet to come. For your convenience, it comes in 2 color options and 4 sizes. SMALL (6’ x 6’) is designed for 3 persons and small tent applications. It is also great for taking to the beach. MEDIUM (8’ x 8’) can accommodate 6 persons and larger tents. It’s great for families and/or those who shuttle with friends. LARGE (10’ x 10’) is designed for 10 persons and offers significant ground coverage, providing an impressive sand less space for bigger camps. XLARGE (12’ x 12’) is the biggest mat we make. It offers room for up to 14 people, meaning it may be used for outdoor banquets and other events.
