This sand-free mat works like quicksand. Its dual mesh weave lets particles fall right through and even keeps dirt and sand underneath from coming back up. This utility version includes rings you can stake into the ground like a tarp. If you’ll be sitting, we suggest putting a blanket over it for more comfort. The military uses this same technology to launch helicopters, but we recommend it for anything from camping trips to picnics.

Great Gift

This is a gift that will be given in just a couple of weeks, and I know it will be well received. This is a problem the person that is going to receive the gift has had for years, so this will be a very welcome solution to the problem!More > < Less

Works well. Dry fine sand pours through. Wet sand will drop as it drys.

First purchase from Grommet, impulse as I was prepping for vacation to the Outerbanks, NC. Though skeptical, and being this is was the first OBX vacation (grew up going down the shore in NJ), the purchase kept in the spirit of trying new things. Just tried it today and aside from the rather stiff mesh being slightly abrasive tucked under your arm, this mat surpassed all expectations.The upper mesh is open and as disclosed, a towel or blanket makes it much more comfortable.
While it will capture the small pebbles of such a granular sand in Kill Devils Hills, the bulk of the sand that got on the mat disappears with nary a shake.
Moist sand clumps, from making repeated entries into the Atlantic to cool off, again disappeared with a simple tap of a hand!
Beaches with finer sand, lawns, and other outdoor spaces don't stand a chance!
It really does work as advertised! Its staying in the car to have it at the ready! Well done! Thanks.
Best regards,

About CGear

Sand-Free Blanket

Land on a clean, sand-free mat that uses the same technology as military helicopter launch pads.

Secure a dirt-free surface for picnics, tailgates, camping, and beach trips. This mat’s patented dual-layered mesh works like quicksand, sifting sand through but also keeping it from coming back up.

Before setting out to improve your sunbathing experience, the Makers at CGear wanted to reduce the hazardous dust clouds that form during helicopter takeoff and landing.

Their military-grade design was then adapted for less high-profile activities. The quicksand mat has padding on top, making it comfortable to hang out on the beach or anywhere else. The utility version is more like a tarp, with rings on it that you can stake into the ground. If you’ll be sitting on it, we suggest you put a towel or blanket on top to add some cushioning.

Whether you’re trying to enjoy a picnic on the beach or watch fireworks in the park, enjoy the outdoors without getting it all over yourself.
