Rated 1 out of 5 by llbkam This product is not non-slip
There is nothing nonslip about this mat. It was sliding and stretching significantly during my practice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ella629 Not suitable for hot yoga at all
I purchased this mat to sit on top of my regular yoga mat during hot yoga practice. The packaging said that this travel mat was ideal for hot yoga, so I assumed it would be perfect. However, this was not the case. During my practice, the travel mat constantly comes out of place and dramatically bunches up on top of my other mat. Also, this mat does not provide significant traction, so I am constantly slipping and fighting against his mat during class. The mat worked great for maybe 4-5 classes and now it is nothing but a nuisance. I've been very disappointed in this purchase and will not be using this mat in the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mattiegirl too slippery on top
I was excited to take this mat on vacation. On wooden floors (I was in Iceland) the bottom sticks, but the top is way too slippery. It only worked upside down on a carpeted floor. It's a perfect weight, but needs to be sticky on both sides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kits74 So absorbant
Absolutely love this mat. Yes it did bunch up a little only once during my Bikram Yoga class and that was fine. It did not slip and was super absorbent. I highly recommend all Gaia products. It fit perfectly over my Gaia yoga mat. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bananas Excellent little travel mat.
I bought two travel mats recently to compare, and I like this one the best. if you're someone who is on the sweaty side... the fabric finish provides great resistance. I find my hands get too sweaty to grip on a rubber mat pretty quickly. this mat folds up like a tee shirt, and rolls out flat again. and it's super to throw down on a hotel or dressing room carpet! however, if you're putting it directly onto a wood floor, be prepared for very little cushion -- a small price to pay for fitting it into a carry-on!
