Pros Comfortable and thick, good traction and stability, lightweight, inexpensiveGreat traction, comfortable and stableGreat wet and dry traction, stable and comfortableGreat traction when wet, easy to care for when doing hot yogaLots of padding, will last a lifetime
Cons Bulky, thick mat isn't the best for balancing posesA little heavy, expensiveHeavy, strong odor, easily scratchedNot as much cushion as a regular 5mm mat, somewhat slippery when dryHeavy, bulky, slippery when dry and wet
Bottom Line A great option for those looking for a thicker mat or who don't want to spend a lot of money.Top of the line mat that works well for a variety of styles.This is a great mat for people with sweaty palms.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.
