Love this towel
It is so much softer than other version. I love it. I take it to hot yoga. Not sure why there are complaints, it's perfect, so soft, keeps me from slipping, and is absorbent! You gotta have it!

I started doing power yoga and was slipping all over my mat. I realized everyone in my class had a towel (yogitoes), and so I wanted to buy one. I happened to be a Lululemon buying pants when I saw the towels with super cute patterns. Problem solved: bought a mat. However, now I realize why even though everyone in my class wears Lulu clothes, no one uses their towel: IT IS NOT GOOD. I was so disappointed with my towel: it slips, it bunches, it makes me come out of poses to adjust the mat. I even stopped using it and have paid $3 per class to rent a yogitoes mat from my studio. DON'T GET THIS TOWEL!! Such a waste of money :(

Sub par towel
I just used this towel a couple of days ago and I'm disappointed because it got quite slippery about half way through a yoga class. It seems that as I sweat, the towel got more slippery. So unfortunately, the last few downward dogs did almost turn into nose dives. I'm going to give it another try because I really like lulu's products, but as of now, I'm giving it a fair rating. BTW the worse part is, I got this as a gift in September and did not open it until October and probably can't return it if necessary.

Nice... but was lead in the wrong direction
I was wanting to purchase this towel in the plush petal black ghost patter. But I only wanted it if both sides had the pattern. I contacted an educator on the online chat to ask. She informed me that it did have the pattern on both sides. I went ahead and ordered it. It arrived the other day and when I opened it it was not double sided. It is a nice towel, and feels great. Just sad that it wasn't exactly what I was expecting.

Best for Bikram
I believe this mat towel is best for Bikram yoga. It absorbs all the sweat and it doesn't get all bunched up in any of the 26 postures. I cannot see doing downward dog on this though, it is too smooth to keep your hands and feet in one spot. I prefer using jade yoga mats for any other type of yoga, its super sticky and keeps you in place.

Dissapointing and slippery
I am a huge of lululemon fan. Everything from the work out tops, bottoms, accessories and taking part in the seawheeze. I bought the towel yesterday and used it for the first time today for my hot yoga class. I was excited to try it and thought it would benefit my practice. All I found was it to be a distraction as it moved and wrinkled up a lot while doing my poses. I constantly kept trying to fix it during my class and felt I was concentrating on that more than my practice. Many times, I felt like I was going to slip and fall while doing downward dog. This mat is not slip- resistant as it claims to be. Unfortunately, I came away feeling very disappointed with this product. I feel as though I don't even want to use it for my next class.

A little torn...
I went to the store on UES to pick up a towel for my yoga classes..(found the last pink one- horray!) My studio provides mats so I really wanted something I could use to get a better grip and also very lightweight so I didn't have to carry additional items from the office to class. I've used this a handful of times and I find a struggle being in downward dog doing standing splits or lifting my leg and flowing into warrior poses getting stabilization with my foot that's planted...my feet are slipping a bit and I don't feel as sturdy. I was really hoping this would be the answer to my prayers as I love everything LULU, but I feel like the material could use some revamping for better grip...perhaps the gel from the the headbands could go on one side to gain better traction between the towel and the mat -- or thicker grippy material on the top for better support and stabilization...until then I will keep looking!

I bought this towel a couple of months ago to accompany the mat, which I ABSOLUTELY LOVE, in order to strengthen my hot yoga practice. Sadly, this towel has let me down, in downward dog, and has brought me out of my practice constantly with its constant movement and my need to readjust the towel during class, leaving me flustered and trying to get back into my flow. It is so distracting! And I have been following the care instructions religiously in hopes that the situation will fix itself, yet sadly it has not.
Overall this towel leaves me so disappointed, since it worked so well in the beginning with bikram, yet does not stand as a durable product with 5+ hot power yoga classes a week :(

Love the towel but shows stains really badly...
First of all I have to say that I ADORE Lululemon clothing. It is all I wear to work out in. I CrossFit, run and do Bikram yoga. I bought this towel to use in my yoga classes. I love everything about it except the fact that it shows dirt and stains very easily. I wash it very carefully after every use. It started showing every mark from the first time I used it. It is getting worse with every class and every wash. Maybe it is the color, I got clear mint which is a lovely light yellow/green. No matter what I do I can't get the stains to come out. Towel is intended to catch sweat! I am very disappointed and almost embarrassed to use. I would think the quality would be better. It also shrank. SAD. :(

Great yoga mat cover (for certain mats)
I really like this towel, but it is best used with certain types of yoga mats. If you have a mat with a somewhat slick, coated surface, I can see how this towel could easily slide around. However, I use this mat towel for regular (not hot) yoga at a gym that supplies yoga mats with a slightly rubbery feeling, and the towel doesn't budge at all.
