Detail of reverse side of the ground cloth

We are excited to finally be able to offer actual rubber ground cloths! This has been a project I have been working on for years and have lost some money trying to achieve, but we've finally got them!  These are actual rubber sheeting and not painted on PVC material that is being sold my some merchants.  These ground cloths made using the smaller correct sized grommets, and measure approximately 71 inches x 44 inches, very close to the Quartermaster Specs.  Originals are kind of all over the place in dimensions, so we chose to have our reproductions made according to the QM specs.  They feature brass grommets (as in the picture) and two extra grommets on one side of the length side in order to allow the ground cloth to serve as a poncho when and if needed.   Our current offerings do not have a maker stamp on the reverse, which is also correct in that some of the extant originals do not feature a maker stamp.  They are also not sticking as with some offerings.   We currently have several in stock, and will fill orders ASAP when that stock runs out.  There may be a wait of 3-4 weeks if your ground cloth is not in stock at the time of order.

    Beautiful gum blanke!

    I have never handled an original gum blanket but I imagine that this is what one was like. It’s very nice and I would have given a 5 star for it except for the fact it’s missing a grommet. One of the ones used for a poncho hook is missing. I’m not disappointed about this as manufacturing flaws and QC errors happened in the period. Don’t let that affect your purchasing decision, this is an awesome product.

    Excellent option. Well constructed and most importantly it doesn't stick or fuse together, unlike another option from a different vendor. Highly recommend.

    I really like this reproduction! It's lighter than other "authentic" repros I've carried, and I can't wait to get it out into the field.
