Rated 4 out of 5 by YogiNYC A does-it-all yoga mat
I'm an RYT, so I love that this mat is so light and "packable" so that I can maintain my practice while I'm on the road. Used on its own, this mat's cushioning is minimal, so I find I use it more often as an extra layer over my yoga mat - its absorbency makes it especially great for Hot Yoga classes. Easy to wash, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by YogiG Awesome & Practical
Since I travel a lot, I need something that is both light, thin, durable and easy to pack. If that is what you're looking for, this is the mat for you. I love that it has both the grippy side (that works on most surfaces including hotel carpets) and the softer side which somehow keeps me from slipping yet is nice to the touch. I also love that it can serve as a mat topper (towel) for the hotter classes. I have tried other travel mats, but this one is my favorite by far.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RuralNYC Highly portable, but very scratchy
I purchased this travel mat for a summer's worth of travel without any yoga studios nearby. It did fold easily into any size I needed it to be, but packing it was far more enjoyable than using it. The mat itself is quite rough on the hands and on any other skin that comes in contact with it -- it uses roughness rather than "stick" to keep you from slipping. And yet I still slipped. In the end, I did my yoga on regular rugs, and left this folded in the suitcase. I love the idea of a travel mat, but the execution -- at least in this one -- left something to be desired. It was a sad miss of the mark from Gaiam, which usually has such stellar products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CCubed Really Doesn't Slip
This lightweight travel mat is great. I've used it for hot yoga and it absorbs sweat wonderfully and doesn't slip. And it is half the price of the other brand no slip absorbent mat I own. I also like that it is machine washable and dries very quickly hanging over a door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lers Love this mat
I love this mat. It travels wonderfully and I also use it at the club. I have never used it over another mat because I like the discipline of being light on my hands, knees and feet. It gives me the best balance of any matt because I am in touch with the floor. If my hands and feet are too dry, I slip a little, but have learned to raise up more through my core to reduce this. As I heat up, my feet and hands sweat and grip better too. I use it about 4 times a week. This is a great mat! Thanks
