I got this mat in black, and the black OM bag, for my 34-year-old daughter, who requested it for Christmas. I picked this mat because it will last for at least 20 years, it's thick and sticky, and if she takes it to a studio class, it gets respect.

I love this mat. Hands down the best and I have tried ALOT! My students have numerous brands of mats, including some very high dollar mats and they all ask me to use my spare and are ordering these! The cushion is just right, they stay sticky in the hot room and mine is 5 yrs old (at least) and is like new with daily classes 4 times a day!

Best Mat on Yoga Accessories for the Price
I own a yoga studio and after complaints over slippery PVC mats, I did some research and tried this mat out - the price is right and it is a professional-style yoga mat. The top later is textured and has a great grippiness that my students love. The light blue mat matches my decor perfectly. This is an underrated mat that deserves some attention. The only downside is the weight makes shipping rather costly.

A good, but not great, mat
I bought this mat almost two months ago and have used it twice a week since. The pro is that it definitely has extra cushioning and feels good underfoot. The con, however, is its greasy coating. It feels greasier than any other mat I''ve bought, and I''ve felt like I have to fight to keep my stability in many postures. A wash in cool-ish water helped a bit, but there''s still an unpleasant slipperiness to it. I''ll try a light rub of vinegar & water next and see if that makes more of a difference.

Good value for the price. Nice thickness. Only I still occasionally slide on this mat, and it''s supposed to be non-slip. I do like the thickness, and although it''s latex free it still has that odor, which I''m hoping will fade in time.
