This is an amazing mouse mat/ desk pad. It covers the length of my next easily, sitting beneath my mouse and keyboard perfectly. I was far more impressed than I expected to be! It's a lovely thick quality with heavy stitching around the edge to prevent fraying. The underside is rubber and the mat doesn't slip at all, even when knocking your mouse over clumsily which I do at least three times a week.
I was really impressed with the fabric quality, it doesn't irritate my arm at all, even though I'm very sensitive to itching and can't wear things such as wool. I was dubious about the waterproof claim, but it's actually true! I dropped a capful of water on the mat to test it and it beaded right up. After leaving it for five minutes with no sinking or absorbing, I wiped it up with a napkin and couldn't feel any dampness left behind. So definitely waterproof, which is great news for those of us who are spillers.
I actually like that it's dark, I can see the dust and dirt a lot clearer and it reminds me to clean my desk regularly, but for some this might be a problem. Absolutely adore this mat and would buy again if I had the chance!
