"I replaced my prior Gaiam Mat with this one. I am new to yoga so I bought one without knowing that there is a difference between the thickness. I noticed that I needed more cushion for my knees (old injury) through my practice so I learned I can buy a thicker mat, hence, this purchase. I tried it out last night and it was absolutely better than my prior mat. No slipping either and just enough cushion for my needs. I gave my other Gaiam to my daughter who says the 3mm is comfortable for her. The purple color is relaxing and exudes a happy feeling." (via Amazon.com)
"I use the mat wash after every yoga session. It cleans my yoga mats very well; better than soap and water and it leaves my mat sticky for the next yoga session. It's also good after hot yoga sessions. I also enjoy the clean, herbal scent and that it's more natural than soap." (via Amazon.com)
"This is a very nice bag and is sturdy. i bought a heavy yoga mat from another company and it fits in here just fine. its bigger than i thought. but beware that its not wide enough for the extra wide mats. check widths first. overall good product and i am satisfied." (via Amazon.com)
"This is a great headband, most headbands will not stay put with my thin, straight shiny hair. This one does stay even on runs, jump squats, jumping jacks and it is comfortable!" (via Amazon.com)
