Sweat resistant mouse mat?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I have really sweaty palms so cloth pads start to smell/fall apart pretty quick.

Are there any that are more water resistant, or perhaps a hard pad that's not so slippery?

So far my goliathus has held up well through sweat and wiping down with clorox wipes. Another option would be hybrid pads like the razer megasoma 2 or SS 5L/ 5C if still available.

Zowie G-TF Speed/Control, Goliathus Control, Artisan Hien.

Hybrid pads like Megasoma 2 and Hiro will also work, granted quite pricey.

Goliathus won't start smelling?

Because it looks similar to the Mantis, and my Mantis is starting to smell where I rest my wrist after <2 months of use

I had a Rocketfish hard pad with a speed and a control side. It was pretty good and I used it for many years. I have just switched to a Razer Goliathus speed edition and prefer it. The hard pad would just build up condensation from my warm hand, and then dry and leave sticky spots. My new Goliathus doesn't have that problem leaving me with a nicer surface for my mouse. I guess the one good thing about the hard mouse pad is that I could clean it really easy.

It does get a little odor during hot weather gaming but nothing foul and I do wipe down/ wash the mat from time to time with monitor wipes, clorox wipes and even just a damp sponge with a tiny bit of soft soap mixed in. Not sure how the Mantis is but the Goliathus Speed is kinda like a tight nylon/ ballistic weave which is much less porous than regular cloth mats. My wrist and lower palm are in constant contact with the mat though proper ergonomics dictate that I shouldn't be doing that...

I have the Sharkoon DarkGlider which is another cloth pad that's slicker than the Goliathus but it's new enough to not need any cleaning but it is cheap. My SteelSeries 5L has been with me for several years and is really easy to clean and never had an odor problem. It was kinda pricey being a hybrid mat and all but considering how long it lasted me it's worth the $40 I paid at the time. This is why I suggest hybrids like the Razer Megasoma 2 or SS 5L/ 5C (should you happen to stumble upon one) though I'm still waiting to get my hands on the Megasoma 2.

How bad is your pad that you cannot wash it or wipe it down?

Get a QcK+/ Heavy and just replace it when it gets annoying, since theyre kinda dirt cheap

Unless you dont like the feel of that pad, then dont biggrin.gif

Are there any with the smooth feel of a cloth pad but water/sweat resistant?
post #10 of 10
I have the Zowie G-TF (water resistant) and it's good but it's not as smooth as QcK Heavy which I use now. My friend got the Goliathus Control but in my opinion the Zowie feels much smoother.
