Loop It Up Mat Strap
The Anti-Zen Strap
This strap is maddening, and frustration with it undoes all the good calming effects of a yoga session. I have a pea green "The Mat," and mine is quite stiff after a year (my husband's black one, six months or so older, is much floppier). This strap will not keep the mat rolled up. Whether standing vertically or lying horizontally, when not being carried, the mat comes undone from the strap. The loops simply don't cinch and stay in place.

Very functional, although expensive.
Helps me carry 'the mat' with ease. Expensive for what it is though! I like that it can be used as a stretching strap also.

a 'go to' strap
Best one i've seen/used. The former velcro strap was just bad news to clothing (oh, the inadvertent snags). This new one doesn't keep quite a tight a hold on the rolled up mat, but nonetheless it's easy and convenient. I sometimes use mine as a prop instead of an actual purpose-made yoga strap, even tho it's not as long as a yoga strap (the kind with buckles)

I purcahsed my mat strap after I struggled transporting my yoga Mat 'the mat' was bigger and heavier than I anticipated.
This strap works so well holds the mat, does not slip AND doubles as a stretching tool!
very happy with my purchase and it will last me a life time.

The Loop It Up Mat Strap was given to me as a birthday gift, and I am so thankful for it! This is a product I didn't think I necessarily "needed," but it has made my trips to my studio so much easier. I didn't have a mat bag or carrier before this, and now I love being able to go hands-free. The strap does not slip or move around on me (I use it with my Jade mat), and it can even serve a double-duty purpose as a strap in class. I would highly recommend investing in this product, especially if you don't want to spend the extra money on a mat bag, but desire something to make your studio commute a bit easier. Thanks, lulu!

Convenient, simple strap
I have always wanted a way to carry my yoga mat without it taking up a hand or unrolling. This strap helps! I have only used it a handful of times so far, but it is easy to get on and off my mat, and easy to carry. The first couple times using it, I was worried my mat would slip out, but it hasn't. The strap is simple and easy to use. It also helps free up my hands and arms.

Not feeling strappy
After purchasing several dozen (at least) lulu items, I have my first bad review. This strap constantly slides off my mat making it very inconvenient. My daughters recently started practicing yoga. I needed new mats and straps for them, so I got this. I used to get annoyed with the Velcro on my original lulu strap but I prefer that one to this now.

makes transit to and from the yoga studio very easy !
I have the black "Loop It Up" strap and it's timeless color matches any yoga mat.
I just plop the strap in front of me during class and roll my mat back up right after class is finished right where I practiced.

Really easy and quick
This is great product to be able to grab your Mat and go. Perfect for wanting to roll up and go quickly when you are done your practise. The size adjust quickly for you with a quick little tug. Much easier then put your mat in a bag after a sweaty class. Definitely recommend this product.

I really like the Loop it up Strap for it's convenience as it makes carrying "The Mat" (which can be kind of heavier) much lighter. It's also much easier to wrap up than the velcro strap, so I can pick up and leave a yoga class very quickly. The reason why I only gave it 3-stars, however, was because I quickly realized that the strap was the cause for the scratches on my brand new "The Mat". I was extremely upset about this because I just invested in the mat and now I have scratches all over the top surface after only one use. If you're going to use this, make sure that you roll up your mat inside out.
