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.

Falling apart after 1 use

By 

from AZ, United States

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

I practice hot yoga. The parts of the mat that were not wet griped very nice but the parts that were wet were super slick. Also the top layer began to peel off before I even got home. After letting the mat dry out for a few hours I noticed a few huge bubbles. Not impressed

Best Hot Yoga Mat

By 

from Amelia City, FL, United States

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

I couldn't even hold a pose on my old mat in hot yoga class. I read the reviews on The Studio-Select Dry-Grip Yoga Mat and decided to give it a try. Just one class and I CAN'T believe the difference. No slipping what so ever...100% satisfied...I highly recommend purchasing this mat.

Excellent for hot yoga!

By

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

Really the best mat for hot yoga. I'm not a big fan of yoga on towel, so when I found this I was pumped. It gives great cushion without making it hard to balance, and I haven't slipped once in hot-yoga. It is somewhat heavy, but not too bad - and you're not going to find a yoga with this thickness that isn't.

Works well but tough to clean.

By 

from Undisclosed

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

Folds easily, grippy, decent cushion, looks like it will hold up well over time. However, it's much tougher than expected to clean. A few sprays of cleaner (and I'm using the Gaiam cleaner & towel) really are hard to move around on this mat. Other mats I have don't have this problem.

PERFECT FOR HOT YOGA!

By 

from Undisclosed

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

Love the mat! It is super comfortable with the perfect amount of traction I needed for Hot Yoga! No sliding here. Customer Service is amazing as I had a slight issue with my first mat (the design faded away), and they were happy to send me a new mat with no hesitation. Because of their effort to make sure I was happy with my mat, I am forever a Gaiam customer. Thank you!

Awesome mat!

By

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

I love this mat because I don't have to use a towel, but if I want to, I also have the option too. The guarantee is an awesome feature and the replacement process was completely hassle free.

After a year

By 

from Washington, DC, United States

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

This a great mat! I have sweaty palms and this mat is one of the few that has ZERO slip in downdog for me. I've had this mat for a year (practicing ~4x/week, took it to retreat in Nepal) and it's showing its wear. After a sweaty practice it soaks up the sweat in savasana and doesn't dry the way it used to... resulting in some stink. I have started storing it to air dry, which is helpful, but the design is faded completely that shows it use. Great mat, but I wore it out!
