Could anybody give me any feedback on the GGear Multimat ? Was thinking on getting that green sort of rubber matting,but at $50 mtr. works out to $200 for a section big enough to do the Annex. Saw a GGear mat in a camping store in Albany for $189 that was just under our Annex size. Looked good,but wondering how it would stand up to camp chair legs ? One thing I did like was the weight. Very light compared to what the other matting would be.

Hi Lawrie
We have had CGear (think that's what you mean) for a couple of years.
Its like 2 layers of shade mesh, but not slippery,and most dirt and sand goes thru it (not large bits),
No trouble with chairs (they do have about 45mm square base on feet) or table.
We got 2 smaller ones, more versatile, pretty happy with them.
They come in a bag and weigh nothing, good for packers

Cheers Ken

tracksnabout. "CGEAR" matting is the only way to go! it beats all the other mats hands down. If you have chairs with the cross bar front and rear as opposed to four legs, this will prolong the life of the mat.

I Could not agree more with Spydor,

We have had ours for a about 3 years now, and I even hammered a peg through it next to the door opening to hold the annex firm in very strong winds and it has not ripped at all and can barely be seen.

This is the 3rd annex mat that we have had. The cheap stuff didn't last long, the next one allowed the sand to come through from below, but the CGear double layered matting is by far the best. sand on top seems to find it's way through, but sand below stays there.

If you stay put long enough grass will find it's way up through it though.

Enjoying the friendship of BOG members

We have had 2 decided of these mats and they are tuff, only thing I dont like is in heavy rain the mud oozes back up through the mesh, I then end up putting the rubber square mats under it to hold the mat up. Doing this it feels soft to walk on, and helps stop the mud.

I had mine covered in deisel and red WA dirt last year, I layed it out on an annex slab added some car wash, straw broom and elbow grease and it came up like new.

To us hard earnt dollars well spent,

ps the second mat, we shared with some friends and let them keep it.

I ordered a double thickness of shade cloth the size I wanted and my local camping shop had it sewn together for me. It works well in the sandy soils of the WA goldfields.
