I travel on behalf of Destination I Do quite regularly since we don’t feature any property in our magazine which we have not visited ourselves. Consequently, people are often shocked to learn I don’t classify myself as a “beach person.” The reason is quite simple – I can’t stand the mess. However, Destination I Do was recently introduced to a new product which is a game changer! Not only for me, but for honeymooning and destination wedding couples alike: CGear’s Sand-Free Mat & Sand-Free Rug.

These two products are the modern equivalent of the picnic blanket. Originally developed for military applications, the unique construction allows sand, dirt and moisture to fall through the weave without coming back up, the creating a clean and comfortable environment. The best part is, the Sand-Free Mat or Rug can be used on its own or as a base for your blanket, yoga mat or towel. So, how does it work exactly?

CGear Sand-Free products use a dual layer dust abatement design which keeps sand and dirt from rising to the top because of the law of gravity and due to the multiple layers. The intricate weaved layers create too much resistance for the particles to seep back up through the mat or rug. We’re not saying this product is going to change the world, but the bottom line is – it just might make your destination wedding or honeymoon more enjoyable.

The CGear Sand-Free Rug and Mat have a smooth top layer so it has a pleasant appearance and you don’t have to lay something on top of it if you don’t want to. Also, crafted from resilent materials, it will not absorb moisture or dirt which makes it your perfect go-to item in your car or beach bag. To clean it, simply spray it down with the hose.

Interested? The Sand-Free Mat is available in three sizes, small (6x6), medium (8x8) and large (10x10) and is available in two colors, blue or orange. Starting MSRP for the Sand-Free Mat is $49.99. Designed to be a bit more portable, the CGear Sand-Free Rug is available in one, two or four-person sizes and is offered in four colors and designs. The starting MSRP for the Sand-Free Rug is $44.99. These two products are available at Dick’s Sporting Goods stores or at A video demonstration is also available online.
