Rated 2 out of 5 by NOT 8mm thick I bought this pad recently and used it three times immediately after receiving it.  It  did not feel any thicker than my old mat, which was 5mm, and I still had pelvic , back, and knee compression pain using it.  It was, however, a good non-slip surface.   My husband looked at it, and mentioned that there was no way this mat was 8mm thick.  he measured it, and sure enough, it measured 5mm thick.  I am SO disappointed, be -cause this mat cost so much!   The other problem is that it is so stiff it still will not lay flat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth it! This mat is amazing!   I do Pilates and I do not care for the standard Pilates mat, so I ordered this one and I love it.  It's thick enough to do "rolling like a ball" and not hurt my back bones.  I also use it for Yoga and circuit training.  It's also a little sticky so you won't slip.  You may think it's a little pricey, but it worth every penny I promise!   July 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Mat! I purchased this 2 months ago--I am a beginner at age 52. I used a cheap mat that tore after 3 uses, and I decided I am definitely sticking to yoga and want to try a rubber mat. I LOVE the grip I get with this mat. I do not slide, and it has really held up well with the 4-5 times/week of using this. I am 5 feet, 7.5 inches tall, and my only wish is that it would be just a bit longer. However, I adjust/scoot where I need to be on the mat. I love the extra padding. Some in the classes have tried my mat out and really liked it--including my instructor! June 19, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not impressed I bought this mat when I started a hot yoga class because my hands were sliding on my less expensive mat. Boy was I disappointed! The thickness is great on the hardwood floors of the studio, but couldn’t hold a downward dog without my hands sliding out from under me. Tried washing the mat and it was even worse! Ended up going back to my old mat. I do have to say that the people at Gaiam were very accommodating about taking the mat back. Maybe I’ll try a different one. May 21, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good with Limits I was looking for a mat where my feet wouldn't slip, and this does the job. However, it's pretty heavy compared to other mats and because it's thick and has that non slip texture, it's difficult to get in and out of a yoga bag. I wouldn't order it again for this reason.
