List Of 6 Best Shooting Mats
1. NcSTAR VISM Roll Up Shooting Mat (Recommend To Buy)
Overall, NcSTAR is famous for its shooting mats and outdoor accessories. This shooting mat comes in 4 color variants Camo, Digital camo, Gray, and Tan all are good to go, but I prefer the Tan color due to its dirty color. The shoulder strap help to secure your firearm bipod and preventing the rifle from moving forward under recoil. In addition, shooting can be used for multiple purposes besides shooting like padded under the sleeping bag, pillow, camping, sitting, etc. The retaining straps are really fine for a long time and the material tearing on the underside of the mat is really durable. Lightweight with comfort design for shooting way more room for a single person. Best shooting mat to buy under $30 budget.
2. Savior Deluxe Padded Shooting Mat (Premium Quality)
In a nutshell, it is really amazing product to buy under a $60 budget, doesn’t feel cheap for the price. Easy to rolls up simply unlatch the 2 quick-release buckles. Stitching and material quality are great you won’t feel what is underneath you. Comfortable for a big guy of 6’3″ and 250 lbs weight, the feet hang off from the mat but the body is easily comfortable on the mat. Ready to use for rough and tough condition easy to washable but I’m sure it does not get dirty easily.
3. Boyt Harness Bob Allen Shooting Mat (Great Stitching)
Bob Allen Company was started at the end of World War II in the name of a parachute shop. He was a famous clay target shooter who later instructor duties into a combat assignment. Well, this mat provides you great comfort area against the rock, gravel, mud, and wet surfaces. Overall, this mat is really comfortable for 2 people sleeping bag when camping overnight. This shooting mat is a little heavier and longer than the other mats.
4. Redneck Convent Shooters Mat (Inexpensive One)
Redneck Convent manufactured premium products for outdoor gears since 2015. One of them is shooting mats which provide you a well-padded surface for shooting in the prone position. It comes in 3 color variants Black, Green, and Khaki, all great but the black one smells a little weird. Extremely lightweight and comfortable for a long hunting trip or spending a day at the gun range.
Moreover, it comes with an easy carry handle and durable buckles and E-clips allow you to attach the rolls up shooting mat to your rucksack or backpack. I was expecting it to be slightly wider, but it is adequate. Overall, a great product to buy under a $30 budget best for those who want to spend more hours on the shooting mat.
5. OneTigris Non-Padded Shooting Mat (Versatile Features)
OneTigris is a company for young hearts & lovers of life. They provide quality gear that lasts for a while. Well, it’s hard for me to choose between One Tigris padded mat and a Non-padded mat. But I end up with the non-padded mat due to its built quality and the 1000D Nylon material construction. This Wild Voyager non-padded shooting mat is great for air rifle enthusiasts and perfect for laying on or laying out. This mat is the shortest among them all in terms of folding mat its size is approx 8-inch length x 4-inch height. The MOLLE stitching of the mat is up to the mark and the material quality is really great as compared with padded mats. This is a rough terrain mat recommend to buy due to its material quality.
6. mydays Padded Shooting Mat (Lightweight)
Overall, this is a versatile lightweight shooting mat perfect for rocky or wooded ranges. The padded quality should be a bit more padded but due to its lightweight, I can’t complain. Great fit for a man around 6′ to 6’3″ in height. The stitching quality is really great and provides you 2 military spec webbing of 1 inch to carry extra hunting gear. Recommend this one due to its lightweight and stitching quality.
All the above listed 6 shooting mats are great in terms of all hunting features. 5 mats are padded with foam and 1 is a non-padded mat, but the thickness of the mat is similar to a foam mat.
