This Silicon Rollup Chess Board is the most flexible rollup type of chess board available today. The silicone material has zero memory and will lay out perfectly flat after being rolled up as tight as you can get it for long periods of time. It's durable and washable but the printing can be a little more splotchy looking than that of a vinyl board. Another characteristic of silicone is that the texture does not allow pieces to slide as easily - it has some grip. Not necessarily bad, but definitely a different from a vinyl board where pieces slide smoothly. Given the pros and cons of silicone, this chess board is an excellent choice for most players and if you intend to carry your chess board rolled up.

Stays wrinkle free, great against spills and easy to clean
I love the look and feel of the chess board. I bought two of these and one of them has a small nick out of the side of the board. Not a big deal since I use that board for my study games.
Just got this today but had to post a review because this is nice. Now, I don't know how it's going to hold up over time but I don't intent to abuse it. The value for the price is high. Looks like it'll clean up with soap & water. Very floppy which is very good.
