Rubber Ground Cloth “Gum Blanket”

(12 reviews) Write a Review
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.    They are also not sticky as with some offerings.   In stock now and ready for shipment!

    I'm very satisfied with my rubber ground cloth. I could tell it was high quality right out of the box. I'm looking forward to using it soon.

    The rubber crown cloth is very well-made, and I know it will last my son many years. Throughout the years that we have purchased with South Union Mills we have never been disappointed.

    Very accurate reproduction. I've been looking for something like this . Finally some one made a excellent reproduction of the gum blanket. This is money well spent.

    Great period ground cloth, the rubber keeps you dry. Canvas top wicks away moisture.
