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.

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!

Nice at first but wears quickly

By 

from Colorado

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

I have 2 of these mats, both are defective after less than a year of use. The first one I had bubbled up and started separating. Gaiam stood by their word and replaced, but now the second one is defective. Like other reviewers, I leave class with purple residue all over me and the once grippy mat is now incredibly sticky. Super bummed, as it's a great product for the first couple months of use!

Zero slipping in hot yoga

By 

from Plano, TX, United States

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

I have been using a $15 mat for years doing 90* hot yoga. I knew I wasn't fully going in to down dog because my hands would slip forward, but I had no idea how much I was modifying all my poses to keep from slipping until getting this mat. With this mat, I do not slip AT ALL. Totally deep into down dog with no problem, feet sticking in warrior and other poses. Without having to worry about slipping, I feel like I am able to go deeper into poses and focus more on my core. It was amazing!

Absolutely awesome!

By 

from California

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

I've been on the hunt, for about two years for an affordable, truly slip free mat. I bought several that claim to be and definitely weren't, so I was cautiously optimistic with this one. And I have to say, this one lives up to everyone of its claims! I sweat more than anyone person should and have not slipped in downdog once. I'm 100% in love with this mat and cannot recommend it enough.

It's a great mat to start, but it's falling apart

By 

from Brisbane City, Queensland, Australia

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

I bought this mat November 15 and it was great to start with, until I started noticing that I was rubbing the design off the more I used it. That's fine, no biggie, I don't care what it looks like. But the actual top layer all over is coming off and now when I practice I get purple "dirt" all over my feet and hands, even noticing a purple mark on my head the other day after childs pose in a yoga class. Not cool!

grip wears over time

By 

from Jacksonville, FL, United States

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

I bought this mat over a year ago and at first it was wonderful but over time the edges have lost their grip and the color tends to rub on my feet during hot yoga. I loved this mat at first but overtime it has not stood the course.

A whole new yoga experience

By 

from Flagstaff, AZ, United States

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

The yoga mat took a couple of weeks to arrive, but when it did, I fell in love. I have yet to use it at a hot yoga class, but even with regular yoga it is much easier to do poses such as down dog. I love the dry grip feel, and the simple design of the mat!

No Slip!

By 

from Utah

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

This is my 5th different yoga mat that I have purchased because every other mat before this one slipped on me and didn't cushion my body well at all. This will be the last mat that I buy. I've found my brand and style and I'm "sticking" to it!

Ideal Hot Yoga Mat

By 

from Durango, CO, United States

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

Thus far I have had a wonderful relationship with this mat! I worried about it enduring the high temps & the sweat from my frequent Hot classes but it's has proved durable thus far. No slip for majority of the class & easily takes to a thin towel when needed.
