Stows Down Small
When it comes to staying healthy and living a balanced lifestyle, the best way is to get enough water. But finding the perfect water mat has been a struggle for many of us.
The problem is that oftentimes, these mats take up a lot of room in your suitcase or backpack. Fortunately, that’s not the case with the MISSION floating mat.
You’ll love how the whole thing rolls up and packs small into a handy bag for easy transport. Hence, you can take it with you on camping trips, or anywhere you go!
It’s perfect for anyone who has space constraints, like people living in small apartments or dorm rooms! Even better, it fits into most storage areas in the boat.
Extra Durable Construction
MISSION inflatable mat comes in rugged 1000D nylon. As such, it’s perfect for use where high levels of puncture resistance and durability are required. Also, it means you can use it in lakes and rivers where sharp objects or rocks may be present.
Plus, this floating mat utilizes drop-stitch construction. It’s a technique that allows you to inflate the mat with a much higher pressure. Not only that, but it also makes the mat appear stiff.
Most inflatable mats typically have a lifespan of around 2-3 years. This is due to the constant exposure to humidity and moisture that causes them to break down much quicker. Well, the MISSION floating mat avoids that by using double reinforced seams. It takes the place of glue or sewing in to create a stronger, waterproof bond.
Did you know that MISSION creates the sturdiest water mat on the market?
It’s thick enough to stand up to rigorous activities. You can do all the jumping and climbing, and it will still not deflate. Certainly, it’s something you can’t do with your foam mat. Plus, if you don’t want to get wet, you don’t have to. This inflatable mat doesn’t sink and will keep you dry.
Clean Non-Slip Surface
This floating mat features an anti-slip surface that prevents you from slipping or sliding. Moreover, it has an antimicrobial coating. Hence, you can use it repeatedly without getting musty or smelly.
Stainless Steel D-Ring Tie-Off
D-ring tie-off tethers the mat to a boat or anchor to ensure it doesn’t float away while you’re not on it. Also, you use it to attach your mat to a tree or another object that you want it close to.
The best part? It comes in stainless steel to resist rust and corrosion.
