Pros Great wet and dry traction, stable and comfortableGreat traction, comfortable and stableGreat traction when wet, easy to care for when doing hot yogaLots of padding, will last a lifetimeComfortable and thick, good traction and stability, lightweight, inexpensive
Cons Heavy, strong odor, easily scratchedA little heavy, expensiveNot as much cushion as a regular 5mm mat, somewhat slippery when dryHeavy, bulky, slippery when dry and wetBulky, thick mat isn't the best for balancing poses
Bottom Line This is a great mat for people with sweaty palms.Top of the line mat that works well for a variety of styles.Great for hot yoga or people who like to use a towel over their mat.This beefy mat is comfortable and stable, but has poor traction with both dry and sweaty hands.A great option for those looking for a thicker mat or who don't want to spend a lot of money.
