Rated 3 out of 5 by rooth nice quality, too short! :-(
I like the quality, look, and functionality of this strap but it is just too short. It doesn't rest comfortably on my shoulder and is way too short to wear cross-body. This makes it awkward if you are carrying other things and not useable via bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 24bucks Great for to & from, not as a strap.
I got this strap in a bright yellow-lime green colour in the WMTM section for $9.00 a few months ago. It works fantastic for a mat strap, easy on/easy off but being 5'9 it doesn't cut it for me as a stretching strap during practice (as it is too short for my long limbs!).
Definitely recommend for a mat strap but get a different strap for stretching if you're tall like me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by shesmadeline Awesome - best investment
Though you feel a little weird about paying $25 for a strap it is actually so worth it. Your mat is kept wrapped up and neat and is easy to carry. It also doubles as a stretching tool and it's pretty. Thanks Lululemon!

Rated 2 out of 5 by iab23 too short!
i bought this strap when i bought The Mat. i have seen it in use before, and was super excited that i would be able to cross this over my body to easily carry The Mat. unfortunately, i haven't been able to do this. the strap is so short that i can barely wear it over my shoulder without The Mat hitting me. i took it back into the store to ask an educator to show me if i was maybe doing something wrong. she told me she has The Mat and the same strap and is able to wear it cross body - no problem. she said that maybe i just got a bad strap and would swap it out. when she put a new one on, same problem! she suggested that it's possible the design has changed, as the new straps are now shorter!
this is functional in that it loops around The Mat, but totally not functional in the way i was hoping for/why i bought it. i have just been using a bag to hold it. :(
*for reference, i'm 5'2" and petite, so it's not a size issue on my part.

I got this strap in the bright coral color, and I love it! It's easy to strap my Mat in and head out. It doesn't loosen for me, but then again I'm not riding a bike or bumping it around a lot. It can get dirty but you can wash it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Raspberrytart Not bad
I use this strap to hold my Lululemon mat (the regular one, not the thin or the extra big one). I like the sturdy material this is made out of and the design. The only thing I don't like about it is that it can loosen up when you place your mat upright and then your mat will begin to unravel. Otherwise, this is a great strap to use when you are on the go and don't need a yoga bag.
I can see why people complained about this strap not holding the mat throughly as I had given an older version--I believe the color was Raspberry Glo, to my best friend and it didn't have the same design as the current strap. The current design seems to hold it better than the older design (the older design lacked a "holding/locking mechanism", sorry not sure what to refer it as), but it's still not "perfect." There needs to be something that would hold the mat better without destroying the minimalist design. I personally don't like velcro (because of the sound) so I hope Lululemon would shy away from that when considering a better way to keep the mat from unraveling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jaxx20 It's a bit pricey, but so far I have had no issues with this mat strap. I walk to my yoga class with it and have had no issues with my mat slipping or falling out of it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Brianneeee Just Okay
I have this strap and it works okay for the Align Mat (discontinued) but I wouldn't say it works well with the UnMat because of how slim it rolls up.
With a large mat if works very good with no complaints.
I would have concerns if I were to bike with just the UnMat and having it slip out.

I got the black as a gift. So far, no slipping. I have the mat in black and this strap secures it well. I wouldn't have bought this for myself since it was a little too pricey for a mat strap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HotYoga306 Great!!
People need to stop giving this strap such a bad rap. I own "the mat", and I purchased the strap about 2-3 weeks ago, I attend class around 4 times per week and have had 0 issues with my mat falling out or slipping, if you are having troubles with this strap bring it in to the store, and ask an educator to show you how to use it.
