When you open this, the first thing you notice is that it has no unpleasant smell that most cheap yoga mats have. It’s 100% PVC free and contains no rubber or toxins. This is a huge thing for me, because I want to know that I am exercising on something safe, especially if it’s something I use everyday.
The mat itself has a nice wide base and is more than long enough for what I need. It’s soft and supportive – it has just the right amount of give to it and is not too squishy.
It only weighs 2.4 pounds, so it’s light enough that I can throw it in my carry on luggage to bring along on vacations or getaways. It also includes a nice carry strap to make transporting it even more convenient.
I like this mat better than the previous mat I reviewed from YogiMall. This mat has a better, more cushioned feel to it. To be honest, the other mat does have a more unique look and feels a bit more boutique. The jute woven into the mat really stands out and makes it look nice. If you’re just looking for a comfortable yoga experience with no chemicals and a high quality mat, this Two Layer Premium Mat is the one for you!
Note: I was provided this mat from YogiMall at a discount in exchange for my honest review. I have not been compensated in any way for sharing my opinion using this yoga mat!
