The Original Mat is the only outdoor mat on the market that features patented sand-free technology, and we only make it one way: to standards that reflect our military roots.
The Original - This mat started the sand-free revolution, and it remains in high demand as the ultimate sand-free ground pad, beach blanket, and equipment mat for serious outdoor adventures.
Military-Grade Construction - In addition to our patented technology, The Original Mat is quality made to ensure ultra-durability, quick drying time, and resistance to water, mold, and UV damage.
Heavy Duty D Rings - Take this product everywhere you go, and make sure it stays there with double-reinforced heavy-duty corner D Rings, perfect for staking down in extreme conditions.
The Original Mat is UV stabilized to prevent fading, is fast drying, and resistant to water and mold. 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. And because we use polyethylene, sand doesn't stick to the material. It falls through naturally and is quickly removed with the swipe of a hand. Best of all? Our lightweight and ultra-thin weaves are soft to the touch.
Perfect for true outdoor enthusiasts 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.
