This mat might be good for some purposes, but certainly not for rolling in a chair on a regular carpet thicker than 1/8". The mat itself is 1 mm (~1/32") thick and the chair wheels leave permanent indentations even without a load.

It's true that it's easier to roll on this mat than without it, but significant effort has to be applied to make a slightest move.

If one want to roll effortlessly on a low pile carpet with padding, a mat for medium pile carpet is a good, but more expensive, alternative.

I got one from Staples, which happened to be 2x thicker and leave no permanent indentations on 1/8" barber carpet with padding.

The material is flexible and flimsy, and only a few minutes of sitting in my office chair put permanent dents in the mat; so now every time I sit in the chair, it rolls right into those spots. The mat does not stay in one place and moves around on the carpet quite a bit.

I was disappointed with this chair mat because it was too thin and flimsy. The mat developed depressions under my chair's rollers that made it difficult to roll the chair. (My carpet has low to medium pile and I weigh 155 lbs.) It was also difficult to get the mat to stay flat because the edges tended to curl up, especially if one of the chair's rollers was near the edge. I must add that I also did not like the strong smell this mat had -- similar to new vinyl shower curtains.

If you are on a tight budget, this chair mat might suffice. At least it would provide some protection for your carpet. But overall, I was not satisfied with it and decided to get a more substantial one made of polycarbonate material.

I like this mat in that the "studs" on the underside of the mat are not so long and sharp, rather more smooth and rectangular-shaped - I feel this will be better for my carpet in the long run. I also like that it is very clear so the look of the carpet continues to flow for the most part as you can still easily see the colors of the carpet underneath the mat. After I received it, I did have to un-fold it and set it up with some books on the corners for about a day until it was flat, but has been fine since doing that. Chair runs smoothly over the mat. So far I am very pleased.

Here's what I said about this product after it first arrived: "I'll admit to being overweight. Just over 200 pounds at six foot two. I'll also admit to being cheap. So I bought this item rather than something that CLAIMS it would bear up under my load, for twice the price. I know I'll have to replace this one in less than a year. After only a few days' use, it's already started to sag under the wheels of my chair. Tough break; I knew it would happen, and I'll pay the price for replacement grudgingly again someday. After all, I don't regard chairmats as products I wish to "invest" in..."

Okay, so a year and a half have passed and the thing is still in one piece. Frankly, I'm astonished and a enormously gratified. Sure, it quickly develops dimples into the berber carpet it rests on wherever the wheels of my office chair land. The dimples are deep enough to make it a bit hard to roll out of them when I need to change my position. But hey, the thing hasn't yet given up the ghost. "Takes a licking and keeps on ticking." So to be fair, I've raised my original three star rating for this mat to fully five stars. I've paid three times as much for mats in the past; none have ever lasted as long as this one has.

Got this mat today. First I was happy that it shipped folded like a taco and not rolled up. It flattened out well and hasn't been a problem. It is very clear and not frosted like most mats I've had were, but that doesn't matter to me. I'm in a home office on regular carpet about 1/2" thick and it holds fine, no shifting or anything.
It's not super thick and does seem to easily leave indentations if you stay in one place. I don't like that because if you just want to move a little your chair wants to roll back in the divots. It's supposedly has a 'no crack' guarantee. I work at my computer all day, so I'll definitely put it through it's paces, if anything changes I'll update this review.

I got this to replace a mat of the same size that cracked after a couple years use. I can tell by the way it settled down quickly after being rolled up in shipping that this mat is of much higher quality and a bit more flexible than the last one. I also like that the spikes on the back of the mat are not those sharp ones that can easily catch and unravel berber carpet when the mat is taken up. These spikes are sort of oblong and flat and work very well to keep the mat in place without undue stress on my carpet. I'm confident that this will last a long time, and I'm glad I got it.

I placed this on low pile carpet and after 3 months of use...it is still perfect....no curling and works great! Hasn't cracked and I don't expect it will since it has been months and I use it everyday!

I had another mat (cost a lot more) for about 15 years that never moved on the carpet and did what it was suppose to do but it finally wore out. This mat creeps about 1/2 " a day to the left, about once a week I have to take the chair off and move it all the way to the right so I can go about a week before moving it back over again. At least it is consistent and moves about the same every week. I would not buy this again and would invest in a quality mat that would stay put.

Perfect and perfect price. Very large, accordingly heavy. Crystal clear. Strong. Beautifully made. Made in USA!!!!! Thank you E. S. Robbins and employees!!!!! Although it is the perfect desk/chair mat, as I am in a wheelchair, I use it on the side of my bed. And, easy cleanup for those crumbs!
