I’ve been using the mat for a couple of weeks now, and really think it’s much better than the average mat that you’ll find available to use at your typical yoga studio.
I find it more comfortable to lay on without it feeling thick and it’s longer than a typical mat, though a bit narrower – a decent tradeoff since I’m tall. It does take a bit longer to lay flat once you put it on the floor but not too long and it doesn’t interfere with a session. The different textures on the top and bottom really help with sliding when the surface gets wet from sweat. so far I haven’t had to use my extra yoga blanket on top but haven’t had a super sweaty session recently.
