Customer Reviews

A small selection of kind reviews, taken from my Etsy store.

“Fantastic quality as always.

This is the second mat I’ve purchased. The first was a gift for my dad that’s seen great use out and about up various mountains across the UK. I’ve yet to have chance to use mine yet but look forward to it over the coming weeks.” – Tom Sumner, UK.

“Beautiful craftsmanship.

Can’t wait to put it through its paces. Definitely not my last purchase, already looking for my next. I really hope this little business grows the way it should. Keep up the good work.” – Matt, UK.

“Couldn’t be happier.

Bought to serve as a mat while cooking. Tough, durable, water repellant, and surprisingly light & packable. Quality is 10/10. Love the logo and union flag detail.” – Elliot, UK.

“Awesome mat.

Great quality and can tell it will last a long time. Great for sitting on floor of our tent when it is a bit chilly out.” – Catherine, Minnesota, United States.

“Sitting mat is well constructed and top notch.

It compact and light to carry. The wool adds an extra layer of insulation against the cold/damp ground. Size it’s perfect to carry in your jacket or back pocket. I found another use for it as a take off/landing pad for my drone, and can see other uses for it while on a multi day hike. Russ was great and very upfront about the delays caused by the royal post outage, but the mat still arrived very quickly in time to take it out on a snowshoe trip.” – Alplau, Canada.

“Great little seat matt.

Great little seat matt which I take on my touring bike allowing me to sit down or use to stop the handle bars, grips, levers getting damaged when I have to turn the bike upside down to fix it. Thanks again Russel.” – William, England.

“Super high quality!

Exactly as described and pictured. I bought two of the wool and canvas, and this one is noticeably thicker than the other as they describe. It offers an nice amount of padding without being to bulky. They fold down and roll quite small. Shipping was surprisingly fast considering they came from the UK to USA. Very happy with everything I ordered, and will be buying more from this seller.” – Donna, USA.

“Amazing service.

Amazing service arrived quickly and refunded some postage, as I had been overcharged shipping before I’d noticed. Also really nice product.” – Paul Elridge, UK

“Exactly as advertised.

Exactly as advertised and already doing the work. Using it as a sit mat on hikes and it’s perfect.” – LStar907.

“I reckon these are the best sit-mats available in the UK.

They are beautifully tailored from top notch materials in England and should last a lifetime. I already own 2 and have purchased 4 more to stop the kids stealing mine. Very compact and light providing excellent protection from the elements. Double thumbs up !” – birgittao1, UK

“I’m a sucker for waxed canvas and this is some of my favorite!

The quality of the item is beautiful, it shipped faster than expected and the customer service is first class! Thanks! Ps. I have a feeling I’ll be purchasing a lot more of his canvas/ mats.” – Ryan Barnard

“If I could give more than 5 stars I would.

If I could give more than 5 stars I would – amazing service from Russell who helped me create a couple of custom mats for an anniversary gift. He was so helpful and over much discussion we came up with something we thought would work – and it really did, two lovely, personalised mats which my wife and I love. They’ve very quickly become a ‘must have’ thing to pack when heading outside. Thanks again!” – Ally, Cambridge, England.

“Outstanding quality and workmanship!

Everything was as described. I’m really impressed, and I have bought a lot of waxed canvas and oilskin products. I ordered several items and I am extremely happy with all them. I was stunned at how quickly my order arrived UK –> US. I had order things from companies located in the US prior to placing my order with Hanley Goods, yet my Hanley Goods order all the way from the UK arrived first! So if any of you are in the US and hesitating to place an order because you think it might take too long, dispel that notion. Because of everything I have mentioned I will definitely be ordering more. I love that the weight and bulk less than I expected, having ordered many waxed canvas and oilskin products. But I have no doubt this will be highly durable and last a long time.” – Donna, USA.

“Russel custom made me a matt to fit the bottom of my Frost River bag.

I can’t say enough about this seller, I already have one of the seat matts which lives in my backpack, there’s nothing worse than being out in the woods and getting a wet bum. Hanley goods make top quality kit.” – William Dobinson

“A little piece of luxury.

“The quality and weight of the material is very nice.

I actually got this as a, “place” for my dog while we are hiking and back packing. The waxed canvas is holding up well against the ground, and it shakes clean and folds neatly when we are ready to pack on.” – McKirgan.

Absolutely top quality, will be using on hikes with our Border Collie / Aussie Shepherd dog, if he can settle for long enough to sit down and take a breath.” – Mark, UK.
