Packaging and Contents
The XTracGear Carbonic arrives in a flat and roughly A4 size flat cardboard sleeve. They are red and black and match XtracGears standard branding with a little more emphasis on carbon fibre.
There are no instructions or care guidelines, just you, the box and the surface.
The XTracGear Carbonic is a standard sized mouse mat, which compared to some of our more recent reviews is on the smaller side.
The surface is semi-gloss black, at least that’s how we would describe it, with a carbon fibre weave effect across the playing area.
