Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great support for knees and joints
This mat is very thick, 6.35 mm (1/4"), and has a dense cushioning that provides great support and decreases the pressure exerted on your joints.
Pro It's long-lasting and easy to clean
This mat is made for heavy-duty use. The thick layer of PVC can withstand direct sunlight, moisture, and a lot of physical tear, so it is likely to serve you for many years. And to clean it you can simply use a wet cloth.
Pro It comes with a lifetime warranty
Manduka offers a lifetime guarantee for this mat as a testimony to how confident they are in the quality of their product. If something does happen to the mat, they promise to replace it.
Con It's expensive
This mat will be suited for people who are already committed to doing yoga. If you're just starting out, it might be a good idea to check out cheaper options (they start as low as $10) before investing such a considerable amount.
Con It's pretty heavy
This is not the most convenient mat to carry around: it's pretty thick and heavy (up to 9.5 lbs).
