So Why Get a woven plastic mat?
To begin with, woven plastic mats are one of the most durable options for flooring. While option 1 may simply be “outdoor seating”, if you spring for options 2 or 3, you will have a tent floor that will last for years. They’re not indestructible, but they won’t take water damage because they’re plastic, are easy to clean, and will take an absolute beating in comparison to other flooring materials while holding up nicely.
Second, they’re lightweight and super easy to roll up and toss in the back of your car or trailer. They won’t weigh you down like trying to carry 45 square feet of actual rugs to war would, and option 2 having a seam in the middle means you can fold it easily before rolling, which means it may be better for those who would like to fit their gear into more compact spaces.
Finally, most importantly, everyone hates walking into their tent, kicking off their shoes, and feeling like you’re stepping into a sand pit. Heaven help you if you forgot your broom in the car, parking is WAY out there. . . Thankfully, woven plastic mats eliminate the feeling of grit because they’re loose enough that the sand and dirt particles fall through to the tarp underneath, leaving you able to walk on a grit-free plastic surface. If you frequent long wars, and don’t like sweeping every 5 minutes, you will never go back to other conventional flooring.
