Gorgeous mat. It's bright and the thickness is great. However, when I opened it, I immediately was hit with a strong chemically smell. It was so strong, I got lightheaded being in the same room as the mat with the window closed. I doused it with mat cleaner and aired it out for a solid two weeks and it STILL has an incredibly strong plastic smell. I've even used it a few times and cleaned it on both sides each time (with mat spray) and fully wiped down and let dry before rolling up. Smell has weakened but is still there.
