The Zowie Gear Competitive Gaming Mouse Pad takes properties of both cloth and plastic mouse pads to get the best of both worlds. Cloth is known for its comfort and flexibility while plastic is known for its almost friction-less surface. The rubber base makes sure the pad stays in place no matter what conditions it's put through. Giving you an ample surface area of 14" x 12.4", your mouse will never run out of a pad in any direction. However, it's still small enough to pack away to use outside of home, perfect for use at a LAN party or some other place where a mouse might not have an adequate surface to be on.
