I bought one of these or similar mat a few years ago. It still has a. Chemical odor. I complained to Gaiam., no reply. I suggest you smell it before you buy it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Shmars Not very sticky
Generally disappointed in this mat. I was looking for a cushioned mat that is sticky and contrary to it's name, it really isn't. I take regular Asana and Vinyasa classes (not bikram) and had trouble with slipping with both my hands and feet the first time I used it. There is something about the mat that has a slickness to it. I wanted a mat I didn't have to use a towel with. This is not it. It got slightly better after spraying it with a vinegar and water solution, but not enough to fix this problem. The cushion is nice but I regret this purchase.

This is actually my mom's yoga mat but I use it all the time because I love it so much! Helps me to hold poses even when I'm sweaty and doesn't have a weird smell. I would say this is a great mat for anyone!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kelly39 Not Sticky
I ordered this Premium Sticky Yoga Mat - actually 3 (one for myself and 2 for my daughters who are both new to yoga). Our hands slide on the mat which makes it difficult to hold poses. I've used a thinner Gaiam mat which I purchased from Target over a year ago. It had a great stickiness to it but was time for a replacement. I do like to thicker mat however it is not sticky. I would not recommend this product for yoga practice (fine for floor exercises). Will continue to search for a sticky mat. P.S. Did try the mild dish soap wash mentioned in previous post and it did not help. Can you recommend a thicker mat that is sticky........anyone? Thanks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by mandaphi super sticky and excellent cushion
I have had this mat for about 7 years (practicing 1-3 times per week, took 6 months off for injury) and it is only now starting to come apart due to jump backs in vinyasas. The mat is super sticky, even during hot yoga, and much thicker than most mats but not too thick that it is difficult in balancing pose. I will be buying this mat again soon!
