Rated 5 out of 5 by Sputney Simply Perfect
Easy to carry & accommodates extra thick yoga mat, thin blanket, and eye pillow. Even came in purple, with a peace sign design! Got it on sale, so great value too. Only hitch is how to use in wet weather. Maybe a trash bag...

Rated 5 out of 5 by hkcolo Exactly what I was looking for
I was looking for a simple sling for my mat that wasn't super expensive. I wasn't looking for a bag, because I have plenty of gym bags and didn't see the need to buy one that would carry my mat. Mine is a pretty light blue that matches my mat (because thats important too :) ). It's great for transporting my mat. Although I have never used it as a yoga strap, its a nice option to have. The only thing I've noticed is that when I enter a yoga studio, where it is nice and quiet so people can prepare for their practice, I feel like the velcro is super loud. Solution: unstrap my mat in the locker room and leave it with my stuff. Voila, problem solved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OkayF25 Mat strap
This strap is great matches my mat that i alreaady have. I no longer need to fold my mat roll it up and place standing up. Now when i attend a hot yoga also, I will feel i fit in also-hehehe. But this product is great. Thanks Gaiam

Rated 1 out of 5 by Yogi13 Wouldn't fit thick yoga mat
Last month I bought a Gaiam Yoga Mat Sling at Sports Authority which didn't fit my thick mat. So, I ordered one from Gaiam after reading the reviews that it would fit a Thick mat. Well, I received exactly the same sling that I bought from Sports Authority, which didn't fit my mat. Also, the color they selected was very feminine for a person who ordered it, named Clark. I will never order from this company again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ShortYogini Not one-size-fits-all
I bought this strap to use with a thinner mat for practicing outside of the studio. The part that wraps around the mat is not snug, so I'm always having to watch if the mat will just fall out. The Velcro needs to extend further, or the part that wraps around needs to be shorter.
The description ought to state this is better for a thicker mat. It barely does the job. It's good it was inexpensive.
However, I *did* like the neon green color I was sent.
