I bought the 5mm mat and it is nice and thick for my bony knees. It is a little heavier than my old mat but more comfortable.

Best Mat Ever
This mat is the perfect combination of density, grip and style. One of my friends got a JADE mat and paid twice what my Dragonfly cost!

Love my new Dragon Fly mat, heavy enough to stay flat, no slipping/sliding, lovely purple color too! I love that it''s eco-friendly too. A bit heavy for much hauling though.

Great fitness mat
I use this mat for a number of fitness workouts I do in my home, and it has the right amount of stickiness, without lifting up with my hands when I start to sweat. Don''t notice a rubber smell at all, and find the thickness works well over my carpeting.

Did not like the mat
Based on other reviews I bought this mat, hoping for a good grip like a Jade mat. The mat turns slippery the minute my hands sweat: impossible to use. Plus, as noted by another reviewer, the rubber smell is horrible. I now use the mat to lie on when working on my car.

Owner, Be Strong Yoga
It has been so hard to find a good yoga mat that is eco friendly, long lasting and truly non slip (for those 3 minute down dogs!). This mat has great non-slip traction right out of the package. It is just the right thickness and size. The only downside to the mat is the initial odor. I solved this by washing it in my tub with mat cleaner (fyi, it will take at least 2 days to dry). You can also try hanging it outside for a coule days. It is a bit heavy, so not the best travel mat.

Biodegradable and a Good Mat
I bought this mat because it is bio-degradable and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of it.

This mat smells so bad that I can''t use it. I tried airing it out for a week but the awful rubber smell will not go away. Furthermore, it is super itchy and hard - when I go to rest my cheek or forehead on it, it hurts! I do not recommend!!

Just Like the Jade Mat, but Cheaper
I have used the Jade mat in the past until I stumbled upon the Yoga Accessories site and found this mat at a much lower price. It is just as high quality and I couldn''t be happier. I am now a Yoga Accessories loyal costumer.

This is as good as any mat I have ever used. I used to buy the Jade mat, but this is just as good and lots cheaper. Smells great and love the colors.
