Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. April 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. December 27, 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. September 25, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. September 21, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 July 12, 2011

I have a Reversible Travel Yoga Mat (1.5mm). It works well except the surface is not stickly enough. Is there a way to change this?

Answer: 
Using the reversible travel yoga mat on top of a regular yoga mat, it is plenty sticky. Must admit, I haven't tried it on its own.

Answer: 
I have had some customers say that the mat works better once their hands have become a little damp. If you hands don't perspire much during your practice you might try taking a spray bottle and misting the mat before you start.

Since The Thirsty Yoga Towel, The 2-in-1 Yoga Mat, and The Reversible/Travel Mat all advertise highly absorbent, is there a "one mat fits all" for someone who sweats a lot and travels frequently? Or how about for my husband who just sweats a lot, especially in hot yoga! Thanks!

Answer: 
They are all just as absorbent, what it really depends on is your preference for cushion. If you are looking for just grip and you do not care about cushion I would recommend the reversible travel mat. It travels really easily and can be machine washed in a pinch (although I recommend hand washing for maximum longevity). Some people require a bit more padding, for a little extra padding go with the 2 in 1 mat. This mat will not travel as easily but it will provide a little cushion between you and the floor. If he likes the cushion of a regular mat I would recommend either the Thirsty towel or the travel mat on top of a regular mat. The nice thing about the thirst yoga towel is that it can handle being machine washed over and over again since it doesn't have a rubber backing. The draw back to the towel is that it can not be used on it's own if you are on a wood floor or slick surface. If he has joint issues or just likes a lot of cushion I would recommend putting the 2 in 1 mat on top of a regular mat. The 2 in 1 mat is on the thinner side so it often adds just enough cushion to an existing mat where two regular mats on top of each other can be too thick.

Answer: 
Yes - I have washed it several times in my wash machine and hang it to dry. Warning... it needs more than 2 days to completely dry. I washed on a Saturday and used on Monday and it wouldn't stick to the floor. By Wednesday it was fine.

Answer: 
You can wash this in the machine on the gentle cycle and then hang dry, however I would only recommend doing this when you are in a hurry. Machine washing even on gentle will break down the mat faster than if you hand wash it.
