Top-quality mat (so far)
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Kaja from Los Angeles on Wednesday, May 20, 2015
For years now I have been using the Original Eco Yoga mat, which I find is great for practice, but the mats are expensive and do not last long. In fact, the newer ones seem even less durable than the original ones I bought, starting to deteriorate after a year of use and needing to be replaced by two years. I decided to try this Manduka mat as an alternative, and I really like it so far. It's very grippy and stable and stays put on a wood floor. It's clearly a high-quality mat but not too heavy to carry around. Since durability is a big issue for me, I will have to see how it is holding up in a year or two, but so far I'm very happy with it. It does have a distinct odor, but I aired it out for a few days, and it doesn't seem too bad.
