As a background, I have been doing yoga for more than 15 years and have used many different mats, both personal and studio mats. I am spoiled by the Manduka Black Mat, which for me is the best there is. I do different styles of yoga, Iyengar and Vinyasa mostly. I bought the Eko mat hoping it would be a good light weight alternative to hauling the Black Mat to class. Unfortunately, it is nearly useless. Yes, there is the smell, which I know goes away, I have another rubber mat (Jade) which had that smell but no longer does,. The Jade is also far superior to the Eko for practice, btw. My main complaint is although the Eko mat is touted to be sticky, it only feels sticky and in actual use I find my hands creeping forward in down dog (I am at least an upper intermediate yoga student and do not have this problem with any other mat.)I find this mat to cause a sweat to form under my feet, which makes them slip. I have washed the mat to the manufacturer's specifications, let it dry indoors - but if has gotten worse, not better. I am disappointed and will have to find another alternative. Manduka makes a great mat, but I really don't like the Eko - other than the obvious green factor. The mat also has a hardness to it that is unlike anything I have ever used, and it does not feel welcoming.

I got this mat for Christmas and use it at LEAST 2 times per week. I just began teaching Yoga and decided it was time to give up my other Eco-friendly mat made by Gaiam- which is TERRIBLE, by the way. This mat is great for the serious Yoga student. It is super durable and doesn't flake off even with vigorous practice. I practice and teach Asthanga and Vinyasa and my mat still looks like i just got it. The mat doesn't have that icky slippery film over it like most other mats, and you don't have to break it in. Another positive aspect of this mat is that when rolled out, the mat lays totally flat, and the edges never curl under. The mat NEVER slips on the floor. If you drip sweat onto the mat, it does get a little slippery, but i just wipe it with my towel.
The only downside to this mat is that its VERY heavy and smells strange, like cookies- its odd, I know, I cant describe exactly what the smell is, but it goes away in a few weeks.

When my not so sticky old $15 mat started to wear out, I decided it had a better use as a litter box mat for my cats to wipe their paws on...I did a lot of research for the best natural rubber PVC free eco mat, and it was a toss up between the Jade Harmony the Manduka Eko, I initially went with the Manduka after hearing the Jade wasn't as durable. When it arrived, I unrolled it and aired it out for 4 weeks, also I used the Manduka suggested organic cider vinegar mixture every other day to speed up the break-in process, I still found the smell to be overwhelming. I then tried rinsing the mat in the shower, and then using small amounts of a gentle unscented soap hoping that would remove some odor... well as the initial rubber smell is fading, it now has a slight fishy rubber smell that's worse to me then it was when I first got it, so now I can't even practice on it without getting nauseous :(. I'm hoping this will eventually fade, but in the meantime I bought a Jade Harmony mat which does have a rubber smell, but is not as bad to my sensitive nose.

As for the weight, thickness, and sticky-ness, it would be a great mat if it didn't smell. I do find it to be a little heavier then I would like, but the padding feels great on my knees. It doesn't feel like a super slide at all. In my hot yoga classes I simply use a hand towel to tame my sweaty palms in downward dog. I also like the fact that this is a closed cell mat, meaning more durability and easier to keep clean, unlike the Jade. I'm going to leave this mat un-rolled and hope that the smell goes away by the time my Jade mat wears out...

3 month followup: I have to say the smell has finally gone away, by using vinegar mixed with lemon juice or water mixed with Lavendar oil to wipe down my mat, and never rolling it up...

I very much wanted to love my Manduka eko mat, but I'm finding that I both love it and then, at times, hate it.

It's superior to other eco mats for so many reasons: no "memory" so it lays completely flat, natural rubber, eco friendly production, etc.. It offers really good support, cushioned enough for kneeling poses and yet firm, and it's a bit longer and wider than other mats.

Yet, frequently I slip and slide (especially in down dog and a little bit in standing postures) if my hands and feet are even mildly sweaty, which is a huge problem for vigorous kinds of yoga like ashtanga, hot vinyasa, and for the coming warmer weather! I never had this problem with my Hugger Mugger jute mat (which was great until it wore out, and then bits of mat started coming off and sticking to me). I'm hoping that the slipperiness wears off as I use it more because I really want to love it.

*Two months after posting this review, I'm finding that I no longer slip much on the mat. Manduka claims that the surface of the eko mat actually improves when it absorbs some moisture such as sweat, so perhaps it just took some time for it to become un-slippery! That said, great mat and I give it 4 stars!*

About the rubber smell: I didn't find it particularly persistent. It faded after a couple of weeks of airing out the mat (hanging it over a chair), so this wasn't a problem for me.
