Design and features

The Orbitkey Desk Mat Slim is Orbitkey’s smaller desk mat for tighter spaces. It still provides great coverage for your keyboard or laptop and mouse. My work desk is pretty old and beat up so the surface is a little rough to rest my arms on all day.

My mouse pad is also falling apart so the Orbitkey Desk Mat Slim was the perfect solution to make my space a little more comfortable. It has a magnetic cable keeper that can slide up and down the toolbar and the document hideaway is a nice feature to keep some papers close but out of the way.

The Orbitkey Desk Mat Slim arrived rolled up and they advise it will take a couple of days to completely lay flat. The bottom of the pad has little grippy spots to keep the Orbitkey Desk Mat Slim in place.

The Orbitkey Desk Mat Slim is very comfortable to rest your arms on when typing and I really like using it as a mouse pad over the typical small square pad. It has cleaned up my work area nicely and now I can find my pen and power cable instantly.
