The PROlite (formally called Purplelite) Travel Mat from Manduka is designed for high performance, but in a lightweight version that's great for taking on the road. Ideal for yoga and Pilates practioners. It travels as easily to a nearby yoga class as it does to a yoga vacation retreat. Like all of our mats, the Prolite Travel Mat is designed for performance, longevity, and comfort. Its surface resists slipping when wet from perspiration, its firmness resists bunching and remains flat even when practicing on carpet or with sticky feet. Unlike most other mats, the Prolite Travel Mat has a specific top and bottom surface. These mats have been designed to last a lifetime (or two). The 71-inch Prolite Travel Mat is 24-inches wide by 71-inches long by 3/16-inch thick and weighs approximately 4pounds.

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.
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 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.
