At almost 3 TIMES the size of a standard Mouse Pad, the Allsop Mouse Pad XL gives you the extra space you need to make your point. And whether you need the extra mousing space or not, it gives you a soft place to rest CDs, memory chips or your camera or MP3 player. This Mouse Pads is made from a specially woven fabric to provide better traction for your roller ball mouse and fine tracking points for your optical mouse. It is smooth, but not too smooth. It is soft, but not too soft. And besides all of that, the raindrop image is a nice way to bring a touch of the outdoors to your desk without resorting to a novelty image or photo.
