That's one thing I was glad I didn't skimp on. I bought the deluxe super sized luxury shooter's mat from Midway and it was long enough to keep me off the dirt and had a lot of padding and a pocket for a notepad for my notes, which I didn't take any.
I also wore my padded kneepads and elbow pads which helped a lot with sustaining the prone position. Found that I liked the sitting position the best.
