Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Sticky Mat! And Lifetime guarantee is real LOVE THIS MAT! And - yes, they honor their lifetime guarantee. Mat is super sticky, I never slip. Just the best grip - important because I really like to go deep into poses. I've now had 3 of this same mat, two Turquoise and one Red. I replaced my first one after I decided to do a lot of outdoor yoga in super hot sunshine....and then the mat stopped being sticky (my fault!). I learned my lesson and stopped going outside with this mat (after I replaced it). But then after a couple years of use, it started wearing through AND the stickiness went the point where I was slipping in poses. I was about to go buy another one, but was kinda bummed about spending all that money over & over.... and then I noticed their lifetime guarantee on the reviews here. People said Gaiam replaced their I called to see if my situation was covered. Yep! It was! They shipped me out a new mat ASAP and I'm SO happy to have it once again. PS - I do not notice any off-gassing or much rubber smell (just slightly) on my brand new mat. Maybe that's because I'm used to it after 3 new mats, or maybe my sense of smell is less sensitive to this smell - to me, it's just a slight odor and it goes away after a few weeks of use. HOORAY! I'll be using this mat & probably purchasing one again and/or getting it replaced if it doesn't hold up to normal wear & tear. This is my go-to mat, without it I was seriously having issues getting deep enough into poses. My hips are SO sore now that it's performing up to par once again - in a good way. :) Thank you Gaiam!

Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this mat! It's just the right thickness and my feet never slide. Granted, I' m not doing hot yoga, but all the same I feel very secure on this mat. I'm on my second one and absolutely love it! March 5, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Mat is shredding on both sides now I love this mat after receiving it as a Christmas gift last year, but after several months use, it started to shred at the bottom. I flipped it over, but now that is starting to shred. I have to pay $$$ to send back for a defective product February 26, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Warning: Slippery When Wet I often read reviews so thought this might help others out.  I received this mat as a gift after using (and loving) one the cheaper gaiam mats for several years, which I had basically worn to pieces.  Unfortunately, I've found that this mat is very slippery during heated power classes, and even during regular vinyasa classes I start to slip as soon as I warm up a bit.  It also smells like rubber (as do I after using it), even after having it for months and washing it with the gaiam mat spray after every use.  Plus, I find it very hard in that it does not provide as much cushion to knees to wrists as I would like.  If you like firmer surfaces and don't tend to sweat during your practice then I think the would be perfect for that situation, unfortunately that is just not me and i find myself frustrated with the mat with almost every use.  Hope this helps!   October 23, 2014
