This mat does not "slip". I am a relatively built guy around 200 lbs, and I'll tell you - this mat doesn't slip. I have no idea how can this mat slip, on the ground or with your palms. Hot or normal yoga. I just don't get how or where all these complaints are coming from.
Yeah the FIRST time I used it, it had a BIT of slip when my palms sweated up. But after about 10 uses the mat has broken in very nicely.
And yes..I am using it for yoga and hot yoga.
Well as for the review, here it is.
First of all, if you can get this on sale - do it! It is well worth the price.
High quality material
No weird rubber smell
Gets better the more you use it
Works even in hot yoga
Due to the thickness, it is quite thick when rolled up. It just barely gets into my lululemon namaste 2 bag. Is it heavy? Well that's subjective.
I don't find it heavy, but I am a guy and I sling it across my back when I travel with it.
Honestly though, I've found that I had to bring another gym bag to carry towel/water bottle/strap/block if I'm going for a long yoga class (especially if it's hot).
Note for hot yoga people: Seriously if you sweat puddles, no mat in the world will be able to provide a non slip surface for you.
Personally I'm not that sweaty, I've managed an entire hot yoga class without using a towel. But I bring one regardless and throw it on halfway sometimes. This issue really is a personal one as everyone sweats differently. Then again, maybe I have more grip on my palms because I have callouses all over em haha.
Overall: I give it 5 stars. Yeah sure it's thick, but that's what you get if you want a nice comfy durable mat.Read more ›
a)It stayed firmly in place on the polished solid wood floor;
b) My palms, fingers, soles and toes engaged the mat surface from start to finish with no noticeable slippage;
c) The new-product smell was noticeable but not disturbing;
d) There is firm cushioning, which reduced physical stress; and
e) At last being 74 inches tall didn't mean I have to constantly spill over onto the floor.
I think I made the right choice.
Extra length is great for someone my height 6'2" & the lifetime warranty is an added nonus
Yes, it is a little slippery to start but I just keep wiping it down with tea tree oil diluted in distilled water. The grip is almost there now and I can really see & feel how good it is and will yet be.
I've read that some people complain about the odour. Doesn't bother me. Neither does the weight - I have a strap and regularly carry it on the 15 minute walk from home to class.
This mat gives great support and grip. It isn't soft - I knew this going in and use a towel for my knees as I've had a couple of surgeries on one - but it gives me a huge sense of confidence to push on now with my yoga practice and the knowledge that I've invested in a quality mat that really will last me for life.

It's been about a year or so since I bought this. It has gone through drops from dumbells for my weight training to months of Insanity workouts with me using running shoes on it. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Another tech nerd
I really wanted to like this mat...I treated myself because my practice was getting very regular and serious, and so I felt it was a good idea to invest on a much better mat. Read morePublished 5 months ago by flyingtutu
The only problem is that as soon as you sweat a little, the mat gets slippery. But maybe it's just because it needs be used more. aside from that I love it!Published 6 months ago by Vanessa
This is the best mat for guys to do yoga, if you are over 180lbs you need a good sturdy mat. It weighs 7lbs so it is heavy, but, come on 🏋🏼Published 7 months ago by Carlo Iandolo
Super high quality yoga mat. I've had it for almost a year and practice 3-4 times per week. The mat still looks like new.Published 7 months ago by Jef
