Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Mat Ever!!! I have used a lot of mats before, from both Gaiam and other companies and this mat is quickly becoming the best thing I ever set hands and feet on. It has a lot of grip August 23, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not good, period As with another reviewer, this mat slips and stretches out, so no way to keep a pose. It's comfortable enough thickness wide, and I liked that it was rubber, but it did not perform, and nothing else matters. July 6, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by I was hoping for so much more I thought I would get a lot more mat considering what I paid for the product. The mat is not thick by any means, and it is very slippery once you start sweating even a little bit. The mat does not work well with a hot yoga towel and the entire mat tends to move with you while you move. Last night I ended up moving about 3 inches forward during a one hour flow class. I guess I'll stick to using cheaper products.. or shelling out the extra $20 to get what I really want. February 12, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Slippery when wet My wife gave me this mat for Christmas. I loved that it was heavy, seemed durable and really gripped the floor well. My only complaint is that it became slippery with only the slightest bit of sweat. I got my wife the Sol Shakti mat for Christmas and tried it. It's great! She's not getting it back. The fabric texture grips really well. A bit rough, but I love it. We returned the Sol Adara mat without any hassle. Thanks. February 8, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not suited for Ashtanga I chose this mat because I thought it would be well suited for a daily Ashtanga practice. The rubber smell eventually goes away, but the material absorbs and retains moisture, which doesn't allow you to grip the mat during standing postures. Worst of all - it ripped due to the jump backs. I've never had that happen - especially in such a short amount of time. Unfortunate. October 18, 2012

Sol Jala vs Adara?

Besides the 1mm difference, what is the difference on the mesh overlay? The Adara says cotton, but the Jala says fine mesh weave? I love the color of the Jala, but am concerned it may not be thick enough or may be more slippery than the Adara. Thanks!

Answer: 
The mesh they are referring to for the Adara is the cotton scrim on which the mat is formed. The Jala is a mat that is cloth like with a rubber mesh weave on top of it. I have both and I don't notice the difference in thickness they both seem to have adequate enough padding.

As far as which one you should go with, I like using my Adara for classes where I know my hands aren't going to get super sweaty (typically for warm ups for dance classes) it has great grip as long as your hands don't perspire a lot. If I am doing an actual yoga class where I know the palms of my hands and feet are going to be on the mat a lot I go with my Jala mat because the material under the rubber mesh help to keep everything nice and dry.

Answer: 
I would go with either this mat or the Jala mat (05-58428). The Jala mat hasn't gotten the greatest reviews but I have one and I love it. My palms and feet tend to get sweaty and it's the only mat I have found that I don't slip on since it has a cloth and rubber texture. Some people say it's too stretchy but I have yet to experience that. I have used the Adra in our gym here at work and it seems like it has great grip but I haven't used it for yoga, only for stretching and push ups. Please keep in mind with any mat purchased directly from Gaiam we are happy to let you return or exchange a mat if you try it for a few classes and it doesn't fit your needs.
