if you put something like a plastic draining tray in the plastic bin- it keeps everything from staying soaking wet at the bottom - especially if you do back to back sessions without a dry out possibility.

+1
I find the change mat great, just be sure it's wedged in and won't spill in the car.
Takes harness, wetsuit and wet shoes fine.
The bag looks a bit overkill but may work if you really are short on space;

I use a North Core changing pad with drawstring. Has carrying handles and is water tight. Added advantage is it's easy to clean.

Contractor bags for the wet stuff. Been using these for over 20 years surfing, and now kite surfing, step in it same way as C-mat. I get probably 1/2 year to a year out of each one, when it looks a little worn I use it for trash and grab the next one.
