With its double-layer weave the clever CGear Sand-Free Mat could be a strong and useful accessory to pack on your next motorhome holiday – read our review


CGEAR'S SAND-FREE MAT is made from a material with a double-layer weave: it's designed to allow sand and dirt to travel one way but not the other.

The Sand Mat is great for use in awnings or to sit on during sunny weather: any gravel or dirt that's tracked onto passes through the top layer.


It's attractive and robust, but we found it a little rough to the touch, so we'd recommend using it as a base and then spreading a soft blanket on top if you're sitting on it for picnicking and barbecues.


It comes into its own as an entrance mat, so there’ll be no more walking debris into your motorhome.  It’s resilient enough to cope with picnic chairs and tables placed on it and has D-rings for staking it down.

 Don't forget to take extra awning pegs...


This could be just what you're looking for if you're going to a music festival or a rally in a field this summer! It will cope with rough, muddy or loose ground and keep your campervan or tent cleaner than it would be without the mat.


Originally developed for the military as a deployable helimat to stop the loss of helicopters through sand and dirt being sucked up into the rotors, Sand Free technology works well for all forms of camping!    


Three sizes of Sand-Free Mat are available.
