CGear Multimat, A Super-Tarp That Never Gets Dirty

Camping is always fun specially in parts where your Blackberry won't work. But there is always the issue of no matter how often you clean it up, sand and dirt always manages to creep their way inside the tent, dirtying up all your things and making it a uncomfortable to lie down on the floor. With the CGear Multimat, however, you can spare yourself from that inconvenience.

How does it do it? A super-tarp, it's made from a patented material that makes sand and dirt that find their way to your mat fall straight down, all while refusing to let any of them get back up. Even better, you can use it both for shade and screen, essentially securing the tent from grit at every possible angle. Don't forget to watch the video at the end to get the real drift of how it actually works.

Originally designed as a helimat (for reducing the dust kicked up by helicopter rotors when landing), the Multimat proved so effective that they decided to apply it for use in camping sites, where debris has a habit of accumulating frequently inside living areas. It's made for durability, with reinforced edges, brass eyelets and rip-stop material that refuses to tear even when cut.

It also great if you are a clumsy drinker. Liquid spills go through the mat and it's non-absorbent, so the wife can't tell you not to bring the portable draft tap inside the tent anymore. It also rebuffs 90% of UV rays, which helps when using it for sun shade, apart from minimizing degradation due to sun exposure. Finally, you can lie down on the tent floor without getting a ton of crappy debris stuck to your back. More fun, less grit.

The CGear Multimat is available in a wide range of sizes, from 6x8 ft to 12x15 ft, with prices varying depending on area covered.
