Granted, it's just a vinyl mat with squares and hex-marks. But this is exactly everything you could possibly want from a vinyl mat with squares and hex-marks. The alternatives for sale (notably including products by the sorta awful "Role 4 Initiative") are just overpriced big sheets of laminated paper, which sound nice at first (you can use Sharpies!) but tend to crinkle when rolled up (and will never ever lay flat again). Rather than buy a $20 gigantic laminate that Kinko's could probably create for a third the cost, buy this mat. And if you remember to, years and years later, come back and write a 5-star review about how durable and useful it was. :)
(Oh, and in the event of stains, just google for how to clean vinyl. We've cleaned a wider variety of gunk off this mat than it would be possible to clean out of carpet. Soda, condiments, dust from bags of chips, blood from a nosebleed, permanent marker, glue, paint used to paint miniatures, paint used to paint walls, coffee, and a million things I'm forgetting.Read more ›
As other reviewers have mentioned, the mat did come severely creased, but a night beneath a few hardcovered atlases fixed it perfectly. The mat wipes clean after each use, in my experience, up to a week after being drawn on. I store it in a thick, cardboard tube, along with other vinyl battlemats of various shapes and sizes.
I highly recommend this mat, both for the discerning and pragmatic DM/GM; while visually pleasing, it also serves a very practical purpose.
Now, using a set of wet-erase markers, I can just sketch a quick map, add in any important details (Cover, computers, equipment, all that fun stuff) with another color or two, and voila! A different map.
I will point out for other potential buyers the mat came with a "Care & Feeding" sheet (That's right, care and FEEDING. Weird, huh?) that says NOT TO USE DRY ERASE.
DRY ERASE can stain it. Use only water-soluble pens, it says.
I attached a photo for a comparison between the two. I included a spray bottle and marker for scale. I would recommend the bigger one if you have the space but if you don't the smaller one is still very useful.
The bigger one is 34 1/2in x 48in
The smaller one is 26 in x 23 1/2 in

Holds folds a bit when new, and if you leave ink on it it'll stainPublished 13 days ago by Amazon Customer
Amazing mat. Love it having the hex and square sides to tailor the field to what you need. Washes off easy.Published 13 days ago by chri casad
Very nice, but does get stained by markers (even the overhead ones that are recommended) if you leave them on it for more than a few hours.Published 25 days ago by Nick Crump
It takes a "Magic Eraser" to wipe off the entirety of dry eraser. But this works great!Published 1 month ago by Chris
Very good quality, just like what you'd get at your local game store but at a fraction of the cost.Published 1 month ago by Jessica Wisdom
When used with Wet Erase markers, it is a quality mat. I don't really know what else to say other than buy it, you will be happy with it.Published 1 month ago by Geoffrey
