UPDATE: May 23, 2014
After using the mat I have upped the rating to five stars. The raised texture feels great, and I slip very little, if at all. The construction seems to be great quality. The rubber smell was strong for about ten days, but has faded to the point where I hardly notice unless I am thinking about it. This encourages me to believe that it should fade entirely with time and regular cleaning. Besides, to me that smells means I made the right choice for the planet by not buying a plastic mat. Almost every other mat out there is plastic in one form, or another. It looks like the "Long" option for the Rally color still has not been corrected.
I contacted Manduka, and they refuse to do anything about it because they say the eKO line does not carry a warranty unless the mat arrived defective. They also told me that they do not consider use of a chair prop to be "normal use," so even if you spend more money on a ProLite any damage from props still won't be covered. So be forewarned--if anything happens to your eKO mat, even if it results from totally normal yoga activity and no matter how soon after purchase, Manduka will not replace or repair your mat, much less give your money back.
A couple other things: while I understand it's a travel mat and I appreciate the lighter weight, it is *really* thin to practice on. I also slip on it quite a bit when I get sweaty. Overall, a disappointment.
My trouble with it begun with the moment I unwrapped it. The smell of burnt rubber filled up my apartment. I am not super sensitive to scent but I can't understand how anyone can live with the smell of this mat. My husband immediately demanded that I do not store the mat inside the apt. We left it to air out. He even scrubbed both sides. The problem was, after we left it to air out, the mat started disintegrate! I get that this is an eko mat and it's suppose to disintegrate over time. However, it's disheartening to find your brand new $48 yoga mat dissolving into a pile of dust after two days outside. Not to mention, the reason it had to go outside was because of the strong burnt rubber smell.
I had read this mat had a smell issue. I just did not realize how strong a smell it was. I am curious who are all the reviewers giving this mat a 5 star review. So far, I have spent over $150 on Manduka products and I can't say I am very satisfied. It's a shame b/c I chose them based on all the glowing online reviews, but my personal experience is a different story.
If anyone has a better mat they can recommend, please let me know. Thank you!
