[Review] CGEAR Camping Outdoor Rug Mat

Travis GneitingCamping, First Look, Reviews

The CGEAR Sand-Free Mat is made using a patented dual-layer mesh technology that allows particles like sand and dirt to fall through the mat but prevents them from coming back up. The top layer is a comfortable and durable synthetic material, while the bottom layer consists of a finely woven mesh. This innovative design aims to provide a sand-free and clean surface to relax or enjoy outdoor activities.

One of the key advantages of the CGEAR Sand-Free Mat is its ability to effectively prevent sand and dirt from accumulating on the surface. This feature can be especially useful at the beach, campsites, picnics, or any outdoor setting where sand or debris is a common issue. By using the mat, you can create a clean and comfortable space to sit, play, or relax without having to worry about dirt getting all over your belongings.

In terms of portability, the CGear Sand-Free Mat is designed to be lightweight and easily foldable, making it convenient to carry and transport. It often comes with built-in handles or straps for easy carrying. Additionally, the mat is typically resistant to water and quick-drying, which can be beneficial in case of spills or rain.

However, it’s important to note that like any product, the CGear Sand-Free Mat may have some limitations. While it can effectively prevent sand and dirt from coming up through the mat, it may not completely eliminate all particles, like larger rock and sand on top. Additionally, some users have mentioned that the mat can be a bit bulky or difficult to fold up neatly, requiring some practice to achieve the desired compactness.


This mat continues to be brought with us on camping trips and to the beach. It’s nice to quickly lay down as a clean spot to put camping and beach gear. It keeps your gear cleaner and is nice to just hang out on. It solves many problems with camping, and in my opinion, is worth the cost.
