I researched long and hard before I invested in a yoga mat. For quality mats, my choice came down between the Manduka PROlite v. the Jade Harmony. Both are 3/16 thick and weigh about the same (Jade is heavier by 1/2 lbs). I ended up buying the Manduka Prolite Amore because it was cheaper, closed-cell (less bacteria, easier to clean), and has a lifetime guarantee (for the amount of money, I want a mat that lasts)! When the mat arrived, like the other reviews indicated, it was super slippery (there was non-existant smell; it didn't bother me). I gave it three or four washes in the shower, coarse salt scrubs, and 3/4 uses per week with mat cleaner wipe downs. After two months, it is less slippery than it used to be HOWEVER I still slip on it in a vinyasa/power yoga class. I don't consider myself to be a heavy sweat-er, but my feet and hands slip during most poses and I have to constantly search for "dry" space on my mat (I almost always slip/fall to my death in wheel pose). The constant slipping has caused unnecessary strain on my wrists to keep my body in place during various poses.

If you sweat minimally, Manduka prolite is a great mat - great colors, lasts a long time, and feels very study/great cushion during practice. However, if you sweat at all during class, I highly recommend going the Jade route. I just returned my Manduka and purchased a Jade - yes, everything sticks to it, it is open celled (greater risk of bacteria accumulating), and has a strong rubber smell in the beginning - but no slipping! A silp-free downward dog feels heavenly after months of constant readjustment on the Manduka. I'm not sure how the Jade will hold up with constant use, but it is the mat my studio recommends and even if it breaks down after 1 year of use, it is probably a good idea to get a new mat (if purely for hygienic reasons). While yogitoes might solve my slippage problem, it also has grip-to-mat problems. For me, I'd rather focus on my practice than focus on not falling.

Sierra at Manduka just received my returned mat. She stated that I did indeed wear the film off, but the texture of both sides of my mat were unlike the norm. She offered to send me another ProLite which would be the correct texture, but I decided to go with the eKo as I heard great things about it. I will say that Mankuka's customer service is the best I've experienced. They are very committed to having satisfied customers and even go through the trouble of practicing on your returned mat to see what it is that wasn't working for you. So I feel that if you are one in many that get a mat like mine that was slippery, you will be in excellent hands to get the mat you will be happy with. I'm looking forward to practicing with my eKo.

*************

I rarely give reviews, but I felt this is important if you are a serious yogi. I treated myself with a Manduka mat for my birthday after hearing so much praise about them. I've had mine 4 months and I have done everything to make it less slippery: Use the cleanser, scrubbing it, laying it the sun for HOURS...out of desperation, I used Magic Erasers on it hoping to remove the shiny film on top. I finally resorted to CONSTANTLY wiping my hands on a towel before each asana...what a way to break a flow. Those that are in my class that have this particular Manduka all use a towel on top. I've gone through countless cheap mats without ever having to use a towel on top after 2 weeks of breaking in. I practice 90 minute yoga everyday and I still slip. It wasn't until someone shared my mat for a pose and commented "This is the slipperiest mat in the world! How do you practice on it?" that made me come here to review and look into returning it to Manduka (even though i purchased it via Amazon).

A great lightweight mat. I bought this for the GF since she kept borrowing my Manduka eKO 5mm. The PROlite suits her regular practice and 5'5" frame very well, and its lighter weight is easier for her carrying it to the yoga studio.

I picked this mat for several reasons:
* Versus the Manduka "black" mat: lighter, cheaper

* Versus the Manduka "eKo" mat: lighter, less likely to be damaged if left in her car during summer heat.

* Versus the Manduka "eKoLite" mat: PROlite is 3/16" thick (or 4.8mm) while the eKoLite is 4mm or 3mm. The PROlite provides more padding for less weight. And is less likely to be damaged being left in a hot car.

* Versus Gaiam or other cheaper mats: Cheaper mats had very mixed reviews with a lot of reports of the surface getting pitted with use, or the mat otherwise deteriorating. I really appreciated Manduka's attempt to make a premium mat that wouldn't need to be replaced.

After its initial break-in, she hasn't had any problem with slipping. The mat had little or no scent when new, and still looks like new after a year of steady use-- she has pursued her practice, using this mat 4-7 times a week and is about to start Yoga Teacher Training. So apparently she liked it! A good mat helped contribute, in its small way, to her aspiring yoga practice. Definitely recommended.

I had already bought the Manduka Black Mat PRO by the time I decided to get the ProLite. As much as I like the former, it was getting too heavy to carry every day to the gym. My shoulder would hurt by the time I got home. The ProLite, at 4 lbs., is a much more reasonable weight even as it retains many of the characteristics of the Pro that I admired so much: cushioning, stability, grippy surface when dry. Additionally, I got the Midnight color and it's a deep blue that I find visually satisfying and calming.

It also, unfortunately, keeps what to me is the only negative: slippery when wet, even a little. You may have read a lot of the reviews here, but let me confirm. My downward facing dog can get a bit wobbly once my hands begin to sweat, even just a bit. Near the end of a session, a dolphin pose is quite a challenge. However, I don't have problems with my warrior poses, wet or dry. The slipperiness problem does get better after a while. I've been using it six to seven times a week for two months and that "film" on the mat that the company talks about diminishes, but not completely, at least not at this point in time. Meanwhile, what is one to do? Fortunately, there are mat-sized towels, the Manduka eQua Yoga Mat Towel being one of them, that pretty much eliminate the problem while you're breaking the mat in. (Another 40 bucks, but hey, who's counting?)

The ProLite isn't as heavy as the Pro, therefore you may experience some lifting of the mat.
