The Comfort weave mats combine the patented Sand-Free technology used in the Original Sand-Free Mats with a smoother top weave that makes these mats comfortable to lie on if you choose to do so without a towel. Not as soft or lightweight as the Sandlite Mats but the stiffer material stays put underfoot on soft sand and make this a great choice if you want some of the extra toughness of the Original Mats.
