What you are getting:
Texture: Soft rubber. Much like the soft red kick balls are made.
Odor: Yes, it has an odor but nothing that can not be over come by laying it out flat and letting it air out.
Grip: Super sticky until one perspires too much. Once your hands become sweaty it will loose some of the grip, as would every matt I have owned. Super sticky can be a bit of a cleaning issue since anything that might have been left of the floor prior to putting your matt down will adhere to the matt.
Thickness: Speaking for myself I think it is perfect.....
Quality: This matt is of industrial quality. it has been made to hold up over time and use.

Negative: The grip / texture can give an individual a sting when one drags their knee or foot across the matt. It will remove loose or dry skin. Why? Cause it is rubber.

Would I buy it again? Not likely..... for I am always on a quest for the "PERFECT" matt.

I found the item to be true to the add.

Color is as seen.

I love this yoga mat. Firm, grippy and grounding. It is definitely a better experience than those flimsy mats I have been using for years. Sometimes you don't know what your missing until you try something better. Plus I can always trust Gaiam is conscientious about a product's environmental impact.

I have practiced yoga for well over a decade and this is one of my favorite mats. The amount of grip and cushioning allows me to trust in the support and take my practice to the next level. I would highly recommend the Sol line of yoga mats to yoga practitioners of all levels.

Color Name: Red
I've used three different yoga mats--seriously trying to find the one that works for me. Still using the mats at the gym who just recently replaced all their mats with these. I loved them from my very first yoga class on these new mats. I'm not fond of the "waffle" texture mats as it seems they wear down faster as nick and "chunks of mat" get taken off with constant use. I used one of the $10 mats from Target and it didn't make it through one yoga class. I was getting rug burns from this particular mat during the first week and therefore hated it! But, now I'm into my 2nd week using this mat (about 8 classes later) and I no longer get the rug burns. I guess it just needed some breaking in. Like I mentioned, these are the mats that our gym uses. I want to get one of my own but this seems to be the only color offered. I'd give it 5 stars if this mat came in different colors so it wouldn't be identical to the ones used at the gym. I'm weary about purchasing any of the other Gaiam mats like this because all of them have their differences but this one is the only one that has the perfect thickness and texture for me.

I really wanted to love this mat. 1) because I wanted a quality mat; 2) because I hate return shipping. But I don't even like it all that much. I've tried it both on carpet for regular yoga (without a towel - it does not feel good on your skin) and hardwood for hot yoga (with a towel, which helped). However, the mat is not thick enough, the material is kind of hard, and I'm just not very comfortable on it. On the plus side, my towel doesn't slip around and it does seem to be of high quality. On the downside, any dust or dirt that is on the floor sticks to it. I actually prefer my old Danskin mat a friend gave me. Bummer, back it goes.

Color Name: Aqua
I've had a Manduka Pro, a Manduka Prolite and a Prana Indigena Natural Rubber mat and this one is by far my favorite mat. I've been practicing 3-5 times a week for four years. I teach 3 times a week Vinyasa and Power style yoga. This mat doesn't bunch, didn't slip on me and changed my practice. I didn't have to use a towel when I took a hot yoga class and I love the support I feel under my feet. I agree with another reviewer and wish they'd come out with more colors. I have it in red and after 2 years it has faded slightly but the performance qualities are still there. Would definitely purchase again!

Excellent.
"I've used a LOT of mats. The Shakti Rubber Mat is a great density, yet light enough to travel with. It feels wonderful under my hands and feet. Very supportive, but soft. A favorite for my daily practice."
