Textured surface for enhanced traction
The yoga and exercise mat features a textured surface for enhanced traction. This type of reliable traction is important for stability and to safely maintain poses--anything from warrior one or downward dog to extended side-angle pose or plank. Just as useful for beginners new to floor-exercise routines as it is for experienced yogis, the AmazonBasics mat helps ensure you get the most out of your workout.
The AmazonBasics 1/2-inch-thick mat offers an enhanced level of thickness. This extra-thick layer cushions your feet when standing and stretching, and it supports your body throughout all types of routines, especially during restorative poses.
Lightweight, Durable Foam
Designed to withstand everyday use, the AmazonBasics 1/2-inch yoga and exercise mat is made from durable foam that's both lightweight and strong.
Carrying Strap Included
When finished with your workout, simply roll up your mat and attach the elastic carrying strap (included) to either end. With the strap in place, slip it over your shoulder for gym-bag-style carrying. The strap provides secure storage (preventing the mat from unrolling when propped up in the closet or stored in the car) and easy transport from home to the yoga studio or fitness club and back again.

I almost wanted to test an egg drop on it to see how high I could drop it before the egg broke because I'm pretty sure it would be pretty high. But I didn't want to clean the eventual mess when I reached the point at which it did crack!
I am seriously shocked. I can kneel on this on hardflooring and feel nothing on my knees, no pressure points at the bony parts, it's amazing. I took a picture of me standing on the edge of the mat with the full weight of my body so that you could see how much cushion still remains underneath my foot.
The top surface is not as sticky as my standard yoga mat but still has great traction. The underneath of the mat has the same amount of traction against the floor as my standard yoga mat.
This mat is also easier to clean than standard yoga mats because the lines go in one direction so when you wipe it down you're not gonna have hundreds of little crosshatch channels to clean. If you look at my old pink mat in the picture it is just so dirty because no matter how much I spray it with cleaner there are ridges that I just can't get the dirt out of once it's there. Even hosing it down won't work. That's not a problem with this mat; I just wipe all the way from head to toe in one direction and it's clean.
I'm going to buy another one of these and use it as a standing mat in front of my desk at work.
The strap wrapper that comes with it is loose around the mat and I wish it was tighter but that means that if you don't wrap your mat very tightly like I do at least it will still fit. The extra slack and the length of the handle area is the perfect length to hang on your shoulder.
It is 74 1/2 inches long and 24 inches wide, lightly longer than my standard yoga mat.
definitely a chemical smell when it comes out of the bag; seems to be gone quickly though but how far gone i cannot tell; i don't feel comfortable breathing near the mat without knowing what it's actually made of and I don't know about you but I tend to breathe a lot when I'm near my yoga mat exercising.
i bought one for exercise and one to replace another yoga mat i've been standing on for years while working; more specifically i was going to buy one that said it is tpe but turns out they didn't have that one anymore between adding to cart and actually checking out; so ended up jumping at the chance for a couple of these without noticing origin of these is not identified nor is it exactly identified what they are made of. i've heard of foam but what foam? and what about the coating?
anyway, it sticks to my feet big time while standing and working at computer; have to pull feet away; also makes noise when doing exercise where legs stretch and may slide a bit such as burpees and downward dog. what is it that makes them stick to my feet; looks like they have a bit of a sheen.
Obviously I won't be eating these directly but do I need to keep my hands away from my mouth during use and wash hands after touching these? Is it okay to breathe as I do my vinasas?
rating would go up if i knew not toxic to ingestion by mouth (by mat to hand to mouth, for example) and by inhalation of whatever particles it emits. also if not so sticky but needs to retain some stickiness in order to be useful for yoga.
just my experience, observations and thoughts for your reference; your mileage may vary.
edit: forgot to mention straps; as someone else mentioned, they are very elastic; doesn't seem possible they could last; i would prefer they be made out of same material as the "handle" part of the strap which is much more durable but might be harder to slide on/off.
