This folds like in the product photo, maybe 1' x 2', and is just fine to throw into a checked bag. I didn't find that it wrinkles too much, and didn't have a problem using it after folding. At home, I store it rolled up.
Out of the box, it smells like natural rubber - very strong, but not as bad synthetic plastic or latex smell. I left it open on my floor to air out for a few days before packing it in my suitcase to use on a trip. When I arrived, it...still smelled really strongly and remained for the entire trip. The rubber smell also transfers to my skin after practicing on the mat; I wanted to use this during the day when I had a break to run back to my hotel room to do some yoga, but I found that I could only use it at night before I showered or else walk around the rest of the day smelling like a tire factory. Ugh. I hope the smell goes away after repeated use, because right now I dread how it transfers to my skin.
This mat is VERY thin (see photo) and provides little to no cushioning. When it first arrived, I tried it out on my hardwood floor at home and had a hard time without cushioning for my sensitive knees. This isn’t a problem for me, as I’ll mainly use this mat in hotel rooms which usually have carpeting. But if you’re planning to use this on a hard studio floor and need some cushioning, you won’t find it here.
This mat GRIPS. I could never slip on this mat. But it’s so grippy (think sticky "schluuuk!" sound when you lift your palms) that it’s actually a bit of a hindrance in certain transitions that require some slipping and sliding, like a high lunge to warrior II, forward fold to plank or low lunge, or chaturanga to up dog. It’s nice and sticky for poses that you need extreme grip in, but not so nice for flows that require a lot of twisting or sliding around. I don’t want to slip during my practice...but I also don’t want to feel like I’m glued down and going to skin my knees because it’s so grippy! The grip also means it attracts some dust and hair. It’s fine for a travel mat that I use for a week at a time on various trips throughout the year, but this extreme grip factor has me questioning whether or not I want to invest in a Manduka pro for daily use.
I’m not a sweaty person and never drip sweat onto my mat during yoga, so I can’t speak to how it performs when wet.
My only other gripe is that I ordered this in midnight blue, which I love, but the dark color combined with the stickiness means that every scuff and bit of dust shows up on it. If there’s any minuscule layer of dust on the bottom of your feet when you step on, it’s going to leave a a white print (see photo). A wipe down with a rag and a tiny bit of mat cleaner (water, vinegar, essential oil) gets most of the scuffs off, but not all of them.
Overall, I like this mat for the purpose I bought it for: a lightweight but well-made mat that’s easy to clean, used for traveling a week at a time at various points throughout the year on hotel carpets. Because of how thin it is, I wouldn’t use this as my daily mat on hardwood floors, and because of how grippy it is, I’m reconsidering investing in a Manduka pro.
I've rolled it up in a backpacking backpack, folded in the bottom of my suitcase and found that it's actually easier and more compact to travel with than the yoga towel I used to bring to put on top of borrowed mats!
Much "stickier" than any other mat I've owned, yet it doesn't pick up dog hair or sand the way I dreaded it would. I set it up on a beach blanket to keep sand off while practicing on the beach, but I was easily able to brush the inevitable sand that did get on their off. Even dog hair brushes off easier than it does off my pants.
At first I thought I'd only use this for travel, but now I use this at home on top of a thin rug or on the floor (the only pose I relocate for due to its thinness on the hard floor is shavasana) and leave my thicker mat in the car for the yoga studio. Having a separate and easy to transport mat has helped me dedicate myself to home practice in a way I had never thought I'd have the discipline for.
Anyway, the mat is extremely lightweight, easy to clean, easy to fold up into nothing and great quality. I like that it is thin but has a lot of grip to it! I would high recommend this for anyone that travels often but doesn't want to sacrifice workout days when on the road or to resort to using a towel for your workout.
No clear winner. Manduka mat is much grippier than a normal mat. Gaiam is slightly less grippy than a high quality standard size mat. Both are fine for me, but depends on personal preference.
Both have similar portability. The Gaiam mat has creases that enable it to fold completely flat. However, the lack of creases on the Manduka does not materially affect its portability. It's a pretty floppy rubber material so it is easy to fold into a portable form.
So basically, to function at its peak this mat needs something both underneath and on top of it. Take that as you will. It works for my purposes but I am not surprised that many people have been dissatisfied with it.
Perfect for travel. Lost a point bc of how suuuper slick it gets with sweat. Almost face planted during a yoga session between mt camp in Thailand (my down dog was more like down dog on roller skates :D). It's a travel item, so assume people don't want to bring additional things like a yoga towel as well.
Not much cushion but that's not really something to gripe about - look at how thin it is, it's expected. Just mentioning it in case anyone has any... romantic... notions of it being otherwise.
