The Oxford Fabric outer shell is very durable and water-resistant, so you don't need to worry about putting it on the ground in any weather. Most of the dirt is easy to shake out or wipe off when dried, but the bed is also machine washable with a gentle cycle. It is filled with Polyester cotton that provides padding and warmth.
This Sleeping Mat is the perfect choice for adventures when packability is critical, but you also want to provide extra warmth and comfort for the dog after a long day. We took it with us when visiting friends and used it on chilly outings when I wanted to give Mia a chance to warm up while taking a break.
I like to add a bed or blanket to Mia's car crate so she can snuggle into it during the colder months. On search training, the dogs sometimes need to wait hours in the car before or after they work. It's crucial to keep them warm, not only for comfort but also because keeping the muscles warm helps avoid potential injuries.
This year we are using the Mat 03 that arrived just before the weather turned. It keeps Mia warm and cozy in the car while waiting for her turn. It's also easy to keep clean, which is a huge plus when putting a muddy dog back in the car after working in the woods.
Although the outer material is not entirely waterproof, it keeps most of the mud out and doesn't soak in water from the ground. After multiple rounds in the washing machine, its water-resistance was somewhat degrading, but it still handles water fairly well. Its thickness is an excellent compromise between packability and support - it provides a fair amount of comfort and insulation while still not taking up much space.
After a muddy adventure, it dries up quickly, and the ease of cleaning makes it a no-brainer to have it in Mia's car crate. We have been using it for months, and the outer material still looks new, and the filling didn't clump and is still fluffy.
To summarize, this is a great sleeping mat to add to your camping or travel gear for your small or medium-sized dog - I only wish it would come in more sizes!
You can buy all their products on their website. The Mat 03 comes in three colors and one size.
