    I'm sure just about everyone has seen these at some point. But has anybody used, or seen them used in person?

    I thought they were pretty cool, but not practical for anything that goes on the road.

    Mattracks never gained popularity even with the off road crowd, surprising since they were easy to mount and had a good rep for durability.
    Probably a pricing issue that killed them.

    I would think that exploraton companies would find them very useful for travelling places where roads are pretty much impassable

    Those are cool looking. How come rock crawlers don't use these? I wouldn't mind these for driving in the city.

    They dont do well on hard surfaces, I watched a truck in Texas Hill Country using a set that took 3 hours to go 4 miles on a class 3 granite trail, they kept shredding bolts and popping the tracks off.
    The same truck was almost invincible in mud and soft terrrain.
