I have a cgear mat and it works fantastic, Buuuut very bulky and heavy, almost never pack it. I have thought about cutting mine down to a 3x3 foot door mat for in front of my tent door or beside my cot. I think you would get what you paid for with the other one, not much. I have never seen a cheap sand mat I liked.
Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of life on or off the river.
