Rated 1 out of 5 by YogiMC Does not stick to mat
If you buy this mat towel, be prepared to be constantly fixing/straightening/unwrinkling it. I have an active Vinyasa practice (with the occasional Bikram class thrown in) and after using this towel a mere two times, I have discovered that it simply does not work for me. The towel constantly moves and requires straightening during transitions (which I found incredibly frustrating). And while it is a nice texture, its complete inability to stay put makes it worthless. Perhaps if your practice is less dynamic it might work. As for me, it was a waste of money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EBB18 Great, reasonably priced item
After taking many yoga classes in hot rooms, and community mats, I decided a towel would be great. I have to admit, it does take some getting used to, as it bunches if you aren't mindful of how you use it, but once you change your practice to include, it really is great. Also, I highly recommend washing prior to first use, to get rid of the slipperiness. Definitely buy if you frequently take hot classes, share mats with group classes and want a little extra protection for your mat and you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by kinetiks Great Yoga Towel
This towel is excellent because it is about half the price of competitors towels. If you look in a store for a YogaRat or other similar towel, they usually cost close to or over $50, which is kind of ridiculous.
These towels work equally as well as any of those - the material may not be quite as fine in microfibers than one of the more expensive ones, but it is almost equally as effective, and I have no problems using this towel for advanced poses such as Triangle pose without slipping at all.
All in all, an excellent value, a great product, and a very reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Malika I love it!
I love the soft color of the purple yoga mat I just purchased and feel thrilled to have a towel that fits on top of my yoga mat. I also bought a blue one for my son. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MiamiMichelle You will never want to go back to a regular towel
I practice Bikram yoga and was using a beach towel. I decided it was time to try a thirst towel and purchased a few for my husband and I. The difference it makes is amazing.
The four things I love are:
* The towel is extremely soft so when I lay my head on the floor, the towel feels great on my cheeks.
* It is as big as my yoga mat so I don't have to bring 2 towels.
* I don't slip during triangle pose.
* It keeps me much drier than a regular towel.
I have decided to come back and get the small ones too as my face doesn't like regular hand towels anymore :)
