The Mat 3mm
So far so good.
Wow this mat is a lot more sturdy than my beginners mat, and it's beautiful. I love how sleek it looks, but looks aren't always everything. I've only had it for today and every thing is good so far... I did realize with little practice on it it did leave impressions of my hands and feet for a little longer than my other mat, but that's ok they go away in a good amount of time. I also noticed my hand left a little grease mark on the mat, but in all fairness when using this mat I was told to not be wearing any moisturizers or makeup, which I intend to do since I don't need all that gupe for practice. It's really long and very sturdy! It's for sure on the heavier side, but it's easy to roll up I don't see how yogis can complain too much about their mats being heavy when we're all used to holding up our body weight in contorted shapes?! So wah wah wah. I got black obviously and I'm amazed at how beautiful the mat is! I LOVE IT! Hopefully it lives up to my high expectations. Also I don't smell ANYTHING?! IDK what others are talking about??? I have a bad sense of smell, but I didn't think it was bad at all!!

In between thickness is just right
I have the 5mm version which I love but it is so heavy. Was using the un-mat with zero cushion. This version is so much better than the un-mat and almost just as light. Does not move around with vinyasa practice when there is lots of sweat. Perfect compromise. Like the other reviewer I want to buy another one for my hubby since I like it and just noticed the price increase. I will probably purchase another anyway since this is better than the un-mat.

So much love for The Mat's little sibbling
So if you're looking at this you're probably already familiar with The Mat. If so this is great for traveling to yoga studios, or times you don't want to lug your 5mm The Mat with you. Same great mat, just a tad thinner (and feels much lighter!) Only drawback is when it initially was posted it was $48, but now it's $10 more to get one for my wife as well... It's worth it, but a tad frustrating.
