Not what I hoped for
I've been pretty disappointed with this towel so far. I don't use it with a lulu mat so this may be part of the issue, but I find this towel slips A LOT. It's a distraction during class and is pretty frustrating! I would definitely not recommend this towel.

My first impression of this towel was that I really liked it. I own several mat towels. I do Bikram yoga and so I have had to learn over the years how to wash them to get the funk out. I would say I can get them so clean you don't know they have been in the hot room! Not this towel. I don't know if it's the material but I can't get the funk out!! I can only get it less funky! I don't know I struggle with this one... I am torn because it does perform well in the hot room but I am also a clean freak and this might have to go in the trash it is that bad! What a waste of money :-(.

the towel is awesome! i highly recommend.
i purchased the towel for hot yoga. having never taken a class before, i didn't really know what to expect. i laid it down on top of my mat, and didn't need to adjust it once during class. i read a lot of negative reviews on products, and have learned not to trust most of them. i would highly recommend the towel for anyone!

This is a great towel for the mat for hot yoga. I use it on top of my mat. It helps with not sliding and helps absorbs the sweat. Best purchase for a towel. They are great in the washing machine and dry really quickly. This is a must for any one who is looking for a good towel for yoga regardless if its hot or not!

LOVED The Towel
I took my first hot yoga class last week and I had NO idea I would sweat so much! I was dripping sweat everywhere (ewww!) I drove straight over to lulu after and bought The Towel. I used it today in a hot yoga class and it was GREAT! I LOVED it! I have a different brand mat and I put The Towel on top. I didn't slip the whole class and The Towel didn't move. It was awesome! Thanks Lulu!!

I Love This Towel
This mat towel is great! It really does help you stay gripped to your mat while practicing. It keeps the sweat off the mat itself while doing hot yoga and this is huge because otherwise your mat can become a slip and slide. I have bought other mats too and this one seems to be of better quality than the others that I bought in the past.

Perfect for Hot Yoga
I use this towel in addition to my mat at every hot yoga class. It helps me maintain grip when I'm sweating and serves as a towel. It protects my mat from absorbing the sweat and I can throw it in the washing machine after class.

Didn't like at first, but keeps getting better
I'll be honest - I first ordered this because I was so excited about the bright pink color. I also recently started Bikram Yoga and wanted a 2nd towel, but that was just an excuse for the pink. When I first started using it, however, I was, surprisingly, pretty let down. I constantly had to fix it and move the towel, and I was annoyed.
However, I hate laundry more than almost anyone, so I continued to use it so that I wouldn't have to wash my other towel after every class (plus, I'd spent the money for it, so I was at least going to feel like I didn't throw it down the drain!).
Now, I am SO glad that I continued to use it. I don't use a lulu mat (gasp), but rather one I got off Amazon because it was cheaper. Let me tell you - they basically fuse themselves together throughout the entire class. The only reason I have to adjust it now is if my mat itself moves. I love this towel, and it absorbs sweat WAY better than my other towel. I will definitely buy more in the future and recommend it to anyone who needs a towel to stick during a super sweaty bikram class.

This towel unfortunately is just alright. Maybe it's the type of mat I use with it but it slips and bunches everywhere when I'm practicing hot yoga. It's distracting to have to adjust your towel every few poses. One the plus side it is light weight and absorbs really well. Luckily the Towel Mat works wonders for me and now I use this one to dry off after class. It is a little pricey for just a towel

Nice top layer for a mat
I am using this towel with "The Mat." For non-hot yoga I like it. It gives me a cloth surface which I like and it quickly peels away from the mat with a fold or swipe, when I need the sticky surface of the mat.
Having practiced Bikram for quite a while, I would say this is not an appropriate towel for a true Bikram class with 105 degrees and 40+% humidity. I've seen other classmates try to use it in those conditions and they abandon it after a few classes. It just is not thick enough to absorb puddles of sweat. Some have said it becomes slick when it is soaked. I use a Kulae hybrid mat for truly hot yoga.
But this towel I do like for my non-hot classes as it also makes it unnecessary to spray my mat for cleaning. Just wash the towel every couple of classes. :)
