So what companies have the best?

I've seen a lot online but often the photos dont show the real picture.

I dont wanna spend a ton. I basically want to balance quality vs price and probably land somewhere in the middle.

Im just looking for basic. Stuff for lord of the rings like grass, plains etc and a snow one for this and frostgrave and some other games. Sigmar and upcoming ones.

I've played on Frontline neoprene mats and they're very nice. The color is great and they seem very wear resistant. They have a mouse pad backing, so they're thicker than a vinyl mat, and have a little "give", which means quieter dice rolls and a little padding if a model falls. And they don't slip at all. They are a bit pricey: 6x4 is about $100 USD I think.

Game Matz (available via Esty) look very nice as well. It doesn't look neoprene, but appears to have similar properties. Prices are similar to Frontline.

There's a company, Stratagem, via Amazon that offers neoprene mats for only about $60 USD. I haven't seen it in person, but the pics seem reasonable.

With the Frontline ones are you talking F.A.T. mats?

FAT mats are awesome! I bought a 4x4 and love it! I couldn't recommend them more! I have the GW realms of battle board, a foam board I made myself and a FAT MAT. The FAT mat is by far my favourite.

Yes - I've only used the FAT mat from Frontline, but it was excellent.

Thanks guys. I recently joined the GBHL Facebook and asked and the responses were largely that any neoprene mousepad style mat out there is good.

Urbanmatz deep cut and fat all.
