This is a great mat. The only disadvantages are its weight and the rubber smell, which takes a bit of time to accommodate. Other than that, this mat provides great stability for asana.

This mat is the first rubber mat I have owned. The quality is great and it's 2 inches longer than comparable name brand rubber mats. It smelled a little rubberish at first, but that went away after about 2 weeks. There are 2 sides to the mat. One side has diagonal patterned lines and the other has a grid pattern. I like practicing with the grid side up because I think it's a little softer to the touch. I'm thinking about investing in a a 2nd mat.

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.

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.

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.
