After taking it out of the box, it did have a bit rubber smell. I just hang it out for a day and during my yoga session, the smell was almost all gone.
I notice the support it gave my back and my tree pose was definitely more steady too. I place a microfiber towel over top while I practice.
You can't get a better price elsewhere...I checked.
I carry this mat around a lot, from home to the studio to work and school. I don't drive and it is still not that heavy or bulky. It is not too heavy for plane travel, and is a good compromise between super-thick and portable. I think the Manduka Black/Pro mat would have been too heavy for me I'm glad that I got this one. I think it's the perfect thickness for most yoga practitioners. I do not need to fold my mat over to support my knees, even if I press a bit more into the knee cap bones than I should in some poses. The mat is think enough to fully cushion my knees. I recently brought this mat on a transcontinental flight and I didn't feel that it was too heavy to transport.Read more ›
Grip is good, although I am still sliding a bit when my hands get sweaty -- I am hoping this will get better as the material gets some wear. It is definitely very solid feeling material, and I would expect this mat to last a very long time. These mats actually have a designated top and bottom side, which are easily distinguishable by the material's nobbing. I haven't felt compelled yet to use it the "wrong" way around, but don't expect that to be really different. One reason why it does help to commit to one side, though: the material is a bit stiff, so the ends will curl up after unrolling the mat. If you roll it with the bottom of the mat towards the inside (i.e. exactly the other way than how you would do it, if you are rolling up a mat that's lying on the floor), that won't be an issue.
The label says there is no rubber in this mat, and the production process is environmentally friendly, yet I still sensed a very strong rubbery smell when I first unpacked the mat. I aired it out for about an hour before first use, and it was still smelling quite a bit. However, this disappeared soon after. According to the label, the mat is made in Germany.
All in all I am very happy with this purchase and am looking forward to years of use.
Love it! Infinitely better than my cheap drugstore yoga mat. Smelled a little at first, but after a few weeks of breaking it in it neither smells nor slips. Not too heavy, great if you tote it to and from the studio.
I will say it is a little slippery when you first buy it because of the film, but it does wear off just like my mat pro did.
If you do sweat a lot, make sure you get a yoga mat towel. I don't do a lot of hot yoga, I sweat a bit, but not enough to be slippery. My boyfriend used my mat and he gets sweaty a lot and he informed that it did grip enough, but some poses he was slipping a tad. So if you are going to use this for hot yoga get a yoga towel to place on top.

Very disappointed in this mat, I don't understand how it had so many good reviews. It is way too slippery, even after scrubbing it with course salt and trying Apple cider vinegar. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Normand Doyon

Takes awhile to get use to it, needs to be broken in alot. But then it is just a great mat with extra cushion for the kneesPublished 10 days ago by Amazon Customer
So I went from a 20$ yoga mat to this one and it hasn't really changed my life. It does seem durable at least.Published 28 days ago by Alka Prim
