The (Big) Towel
I've been struggling with a slippery mat for a while now during hot yoga and decided to purchase this towel. I've used it for about a week now and I've been super disappointed with it. This towel does not provide me with any additional grip. If anything, it's more slippery than my mat. It only provides me with grip once it's soaked. I'd constantly have to fold the towel down and just use my mat for the most part of the class since I can't even hold a downward dog with it on. I've been a fan of lululemon for years but this product is really disappointing.

Big but extremely slippery
The only good feature about the 'big' towel is it covers the 'big' mat. The towel is so slippery that you cannot do simple poses like downward facing dog without your hands and feet coming out from beneath you. A solution is to completely soak the mat with water for grip, but this is a bit silly, especially when the big mat by itself is so very nice and grippy. Currently have to fold the towel so I can put my hands on the big mat for grip, and sweat falls in the middle on the towel. I will be buying something smaller that will provide proper grip so that I can safely do yoga - even if it doesn't cover the big mat fully.

More of a sheet than a towel
Looking at the photo on the website it appears much more thick and towel like. I was disappointed to find it was very thin and sheet like.

I wasn't expecting to love this towel based off reading some of the reviews. I have 3 yogi toes and this towel. The "big" towel is by far my favorite. It doesn't slips when super wet (I sweat a lot) and its thinner which I like. Overall I was really impressed with this towel. Ill be buying more!

I used to use a non lulu towel with sticky things on the bottom...The Lulu towel and mat combo is awesome for my hot yoga practice.
I recommend going in early a lay in shavasana and getting your sweat on a little....the traction is best when it's a little damp.

I bought the light grey towel for hot yoga class. Overall, it's a pretty good towel. Absorbs sweat. Washes well & dries quickly. The only thing I find is that it still moves around quite a bit during class. I would recommend something that has a little more grip at the bottom of the towel to keep it in place.

Great Towel but MORE COLORS
This is a great towel bc it is literally the only one that covers the big mat fully. But we need some more colors, the big mat users are prob 95% men so some masculine colors please. Black, Navy Blue.
