CGear Sand Free Mats Will Keep The Grit Out Of Your Tent

By Andrew Liszewski

Originally designed for the military as an easily deployable way to reduce the dirt, dust and debris that gets kicked up by a helicopter’s rotors, these Sand Free Multimats, from an Australian company called CGear, are just as effective at keeping the stuff out of your tent or off your gear while at the beach.

The mats feature a clever dual-layer mesh design that allows dust and sand to fall through without coming back up. So when placed in front of the entrance to your tent they’ll provide an effective way to keep the sand on the beach and out of your sleeping bag. The consumer versions of the mats are available in 3 sizes, 6×6 feet, 8×8 feet and 10×10 feet for $50, $60 and $75 respectively, and should be available in popular sporting goods stores sometime in May.

    So how do you get the sound out later?

    And nice “tent” – I really hate corporate faked product shots.

    I suspect all product is two layers of shade cloth. I've camped at the beach for years and always lay down shade cloth as mats and walk ways between tents, the sand falls strait through and doesnt seem to settle into the sand, I suspect because of the surface area.
