Rated 5 out of 5 by peregrinita Excellent thick sticky mat
This is my favorite yoga mat. It has a different texture than a regular mat, a little more cushion and a mixture of fabric and rubber nubs on the surface. I use this on hard wood floors, which is a very luxurious, yet stable foundation compared to my regular 1/4" thick standard yoga mats. I also use this on a low pile carpet with excellent results. it's heavier and bulkier than a regular mat, so to go to class I take my standard mat, but at home, this is the mat I use regularly. It didn't need any break-in time and gives a solid, stable foundation. I don't ever slip on this mat. It also lasts forever. I have had mine now for two years and it's still going strong with 3-6 yoga sessions per week. Highly recommend!

I loved this mat at first. It is great for hot yoga, definitely non-slip. However, after only 5 months of use, I got a hole in the mat. A piece of the rubber between one of the mesh overlays just popped out and left a round hole large enough to catch a toe in. So very disappointed to use a mat for such a short time before it got a hole. Cannot find anything I did that would have caused this. I have never even torn a mat before. Way to expensive to last only 5 months!

I needed a new mat and got this for father's day. First, pictures don't do it justice, it looks great! After using it, I can say that I didn't slip at all, it has just enough cushioning while keeping your standing poses stable, and just has a nice texture for savasana. My only hope is that the natural rubber treads don't erode like the last mat I had (of the same type of rubber). I have high hopes for this mat, expect it to get a lot of use!

Rated 1 out of 5 by deJager Pick another mat
The grips do not grip. Do not sweat you will slip and slide on this mat. I wish I had returned it. I paid way too much money for this mat. The $20 Gaiam mat serves me way better than this mat does. I smell like rubber when I am done. I slip and slide through class. I am repositioning throughout the whole class. The rubber grips do on grip your feet slide. The company should replace the mats sold so users do not get hurt from sliding. Someone is really going to get hurt using this mat. It stretches and slides. Good luck to you if you buy it and use it for this price. It looks great. I have to go find a another mat now. The company makes great mats and bags they dropped this one, I don't get it?

Rated 4 out of 5 by indygochild Pretty good mat
The good stuff: sticky but not too, not bulky, great texture and pattern. Got lots of compliments on it. The stuff that could be better: another millimeter or two of thickness would make this mat perfect for me. It also tends to kind of stretch a little in certain poses but that just seems a bit weird to me and really doesn't actually interfere with my practice. Overall I am satisfied. Make it a bit thicker and it would be perfect. It does have the typical rubber odor at first but that went away quickly.
