2.0 out of 5 stars slippery yoga mat., 5 Jan. 2011
i bought this mat and i am quite desapointed with the product. the mat is the most slippery yoga mat i have ever used. don t wast 75 GBP for that. Manduka advice you to break the mat down by washing it with different products, such as dish washing product, salt, vinegars, and expose it to the sun. Why should i waste time to break down their a product that has not been though for yoga.

Have they ever used this mat in a Yoga class? i am doing ashtanga and not sweating a lot, but by the end of the sun saluation B, the mat is as slippery as an iceskating ring. i end up to use one of those 10 dollars sticky mat on top of it to not slide. Ironic.

one good point though, is the lengh and with of the mat. Its densitity is also very good.

2.0 out of 5 stars The most slippery mat EVER, 5 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Manduka PROlite Yoga Mat (Sports)
The density of the mat is very nice and the size is perfect, but i have to admit that i am disapointed by the fact that this mat is the most slippery yoga mat i have ever used. i am doing ashtanga yoga and as soon as my hands get a bit wet or my feet, i just slide. i have to use one of those 10 dollars sticky mat on top of it. Ironic....

i googled the issue on the internet and on amazon and realized that i was not the only one complaining about this. Then i found out that buyers are adviced by Manduka to "break-down" their mats. Wash it, salt it, wash it, put vinegar on it, wash it and then expose it to the sun for 3 hours (i live in Iceland, we are in winter, there is no sun and only night....)

When i buy a product, i expect it to function properly. I do not think that i should spend time and money trying to fix their product.
Have the Manduka people tested the mat?
