I bought this mat after despairing with the Manduku Pro-lite which was absolutely awful. With the manduka, despite cleaning it with vodka and a brillo pad, 6 months later it was STILL slippery so I have up and bought this.   I used it brand new for the first time yesterday and am beaming this morning. THIS MAT IS SIMPLY THE BEST. The yoga I practice is Iyengar, heavily based on alignment and extremely demanding. We hold poses for a VERY long time, lower into chatarunga etc very slowly and so grip is extremely, extremely important. My teacher always teaches lunges with a heavy emphasis on having our front leg parallel with the floor at 90 degrees, so there is an extremely strong emphasis on alignment.   Yesterday when I tried this mat for the first time, right from after my hands met the mat after the first forward bend, right through to down dog my hands did not MOVE! We then proceeded to be in down dog for at least a minute, and the grip did not slip one INSTANT! This mat is the real deal, it does exactly what it says, its brilliant and all the other girls at my studio are purchasing theres now. Best value â€" even at double price id still buy it!!!

Sadly, I gave this mat a 2 star rating. I was so, SO excited to get this in the mail. I opened it up, aired it out for 3 days (the smell was totally normal/to be expected), and took it to my usual hot vinyasa class. It worked really well, just the right amount of stick, up until I started to sweat. This mat is supposed to be specifically for hot yoga, but in my 100 degree class where everyone drips buckets, it failed miserably. The sweat collects on the mat and sits on top of it, making it super slippery - I couldn't practice without sticking a towel on top of it. I wouldn't have spent this much money on a mat I have to cover with a towel anyway. (The towel I had also purchased in this same order through Gaiam - the No Slip Towel with the rubber on the bottom, also failed, but that's for another review.) I kept trying for three more classes with this mat. I cleaned it, I flipped it over to the other side, but nothing made this mat a worthwhile purchase for a hot class. It's great, probably, for a regular class, no slip until you sweat, hence the 2 star rating instead of the 1. I used the reviews on this website, which were all good, before purchasing this mat. Trust me when I say, this one is more accurate.

Best Customer Service Ever!

By 

from Denver, CO, United States

Comments about Gaiam Blue Sol Dry-Grip 5mm Yoga Mat:

I received this mat as a gift about a year ago and loved it for close to 8 months. It was the best mat I've used. Stuck like glue in balancing poses and had great cushion without being the least unstable. Unfortunately, after about 8 months of yoga only 1 to 2 times a week, the rubber on the top started crumbling and piling up, making my hands and feet slip and leaving blue grit on my clothes. I emailed customer service and they immediately sent me a brand new mat. It was the easiest and best replacement service I have used with any company. My new mat is in the mail and I can't wait to receive it.

falling apart

By 

from North Carolina, United States

Comments about Gaiam Blue Sol Dry-Grip 5mm Yoga Mat:

I got this mat as a birthday gift. I've used it probably 3 times a week for 6 month. I do home yoga (I'm not a hardcore yogi). It is non slip, but otherwise I expected much more from Gaiam. The color is coming off. Every time I clean it the rag is colored purple (I'm only using water and occasionally mat cleaner) and it is bubbling. It also peels up as I'm using it, leaving a black grit on the mat as I'm doing yoga (it reminds me of the leftovers from a pencil eraser).

Great mat! but make sure you aren't too tall

By 

from Gilbert, AZ, United States

Comments about Gaiam Blue Sol Dry-Grip 5mm Yoga Mat:

I got this mat as a replacement mat. It is perfect, but they sent me the regular and I used to have the "tall, and wider" version. Gaiam's life warranty is the best, and Brianna sent me the mat right away. I rolled it down at the studio and right away noticed being "shorter" then my other one. I am over 6" so it made a difference. My heels were off the mat for savasana. No worries, I called Brianna right away and she placed another order, a replacement for the replacement. I teach over 15 classes of yoga a week, ranging from a hot studio to the regular gym classes. I won't use any other kind of mat, only Gaiam. You won't be slipping off in your down dog, and the 5mm is the perfect thickness. This class was extremely hot today, and it was called "Bootcamp Yoga", so even extra harder. Despite the mat being a bit short for me, it performed perfectly. I was sweating like crazy, but never once slipped off my warriors, arm balances, you name it. Again, go for this one. Or if you are over 5"11 I surely recommend the extra long one.

Great traction

By 

from Wapakoneta, OH, United States

Comments about Gaiam Blue Sol Dry-Grip 5mm Yoga Mat:

I bought my mat right before Christmas after discovering I have sweaty appendages. Hot yoga, aerial yoga, morning flow - my hands and feet sweat. Now when my hands or feet soil themselves I can stay put in down dog!
