Some mats are fabric. Some are vinyl. Which hug/drape the best with hills underneath? I know Cigar Box mats do well. Others?

I've had good luck with Monday Knight mats, but over bigger, bulkier hills, not over slight 3/4" ridges…

Cigar box battle mats hold nicely.

There's a UK retailer (Big Red Batshop) that does coth printed mats that look like they'd do well

Cigar Box are better than Deep Cut, in my experience.
