Straight Mat Description
The Straight Mat is a basic quad-folding mat, constructed of 1000D Cordura outer with a robust, closed-cell foam inner.
Providing a comfortable shooting platform, a quick seat for a short stop, or double as a sleeping mat.
As it is designed to fold away in a few seconds, there is no need to roll it up as with other mats.
The Cordura outer provides a water-resistant cover with excellent abrasion resistance. The mat can be used fully extended or folded in a number of configurations. It can easily fold up and slip in between the frame and body of your pack, be stowed under the pack lid or slipped anywhere into your vehicle for quick deployment.
Length(closed): 28 cm
Width: 40 cm
Wimp MatBy: Bart Kohler on 15 November 2019I was looking for a mat to replace my exploded self-inflating issued mat and had seen folded ones on old Alice pack configurations. So with the issue of the new SCE pack for going on TS19, I bought this to go in the plastic frame like an Alice pack. It folds small enough to fit in the frame and holds itself pretty much in place but I used one of the multitude of superfluous small straps on the pack to retain it as well. It required a small amount of adjustment of the lumber but it wasn’t against my back so air flow was there. The easy accessible location meant that it could be pulled out and used quickly as a temporary rest or seat as per the description and it gave peace of mind that my TAS bivvy wouldn’t be pierced when I rolled around at night by placing it under the bivvy. And yes, I am a wimp because I had a Static X Recon inside the Bivvy as well.
