Great mat, no problems, but you need to do a "serious" break-in when you first get it.

I’m a tall man who’s pretty strong so mat “weight” isn’t an issue at all but I wanted something good and durable as I have a daily Yoga practice which involves some heated sessions. This mat is definitely awesome – it’s durable, it has a lifetime warrantee, and it works well. I’ve used it with and without the eQua towel it came with. The towel is great (you must wet it at the beginning of your practice though), there’s absolutely no slippage once you dampen it, and the only drawback is hauling around this mat accessory. Recently I stopped using the towel, following suit of my Yoga instructors, each of whom don’t use one, and I’ve not had any issues (and I like not having a towel to worry about).
If you only have one mat, this is the one.
For everyday home use this is an amazing mat. Make sure to get the cleaner that manduka offers as well. The towel that comes with is also very big.
Love the mat and towel combo
Love the mat and towel combo, but just the mat is very very slick once I start to sweat in class.
There is no other yoga mat that compares to Manduka Black, enough said!

I have had my Manduka Black Mat for 15 years, and it’s still like new, and believe I use A LOT. I first bought it when I start practicing Ashtanga Yoga, because I needed a sturdy mat and also because that’s what all the other Yogis had and I really wanted to fit in….JK! No for real, a lot of Ashtanga lovers were using that mat, so I paid what I thought was a LOT for a mat back then, $100 bucks, but of course I know now it was money well spent. This mat has been with me for 15 years of yoga practice, including Ashtanga, Bikram (3 years running in the heat), Core Power, you name it. I bought this one just this Christmas for my daughter because whenever she’s in town, and going to yoga she wants mine (you think I’m going to rent a mat mom, yuck!). Don’t even bother looking elsewhere, I promise you, you will not be disappointed with this mat, you will fall love in each and every time you practice on it. Namaste! ~Laura from http://www.womens-fitness-tips.com/

I’m a yoga novice. One of the many people who’s first experience was with p90x, and for the one day a week commitment wasn’t going to spend a fortune on a mat. I surprisingly ended up really enjoying yoga and wanted to pursue the practice a little more in depth afterward p90 had run it’s course. Because I do most all of my work out’s from home I never was around other people or their “equipment” and never gave my cheap $30 mat a second thought. I should have. I can’t speak of how this mat compares to Jade or Prana or Lululemon, but I can tell you emphatically that if you are using a TJ Max or Target mat you are doing yourself a disservice. This mat holds rock solid in place while your moving between poses and let’s you focus on your movements instead of the mats. I will say, every serious yoga writer I’ve seen talks about how “soft” the pro is…if you’re coming from a cheap mat it’s going to feel like a brick. It’s a good thing, but something you may have to adjust to.
The best yoga mat ever

The best yoga mat ever. I cannot believe I waited so long to purchase this. Once broken in this mat is firm but comfortable. I feel like my poses and practice have improved so much more using this mat. You just feel so grounded and stable on it. Yes it’s heavy but that’s why it is so amazing! Highly recommend! I didn’t find the salt washing technique very helpful for breaking in. I found a method online that worked like magic and didn’t have to do several times just once Get a bucket and fill with warm water and a few drops of regular liquid laundry soap. Get a couple towels enough to cover the surface of the mat and put into soapy water, wring out excess and then lay them on top of the mat. Leave alone for about 30 minutes. Rinse the mat with clean water, pat dry and hang to dry. Don’t submerge mat in tub or try to soak it during rinse. Just use sprayer on a hose or maybe the shower. This worked great! Nice and grippy afterward!!

I would have given it a 5-star rating if it weren’t for the mat’s “break-in period”. (It comes with tips for care.)
The Rolls Royce of Yoga Mats
4 people found this helpful.
I spent nearly a week evaluating the seemingly endless variety of Yoga mats on the market. After much deliberation I made the decision to buy the Manduka Pro. I was so unsure that after ordering it I worried that I made the wrong choice. Upon receiving my Manduka Pro I knew immediately that I made the right choice. This mat truly is the Rolls Royce of Yoga mats, it’s got a lot of cushion, in fact it’s got perfectly balanced cushioning, it’s not too hard or too soft, it’s just right. It’s very grippy without feeling too grippy, there’s a wonderful softness to it. I love the weight of it, it stays put wherever you unroll it and provides a stable and supportive surface. It also has a lifetime guarantee which tells me that Manduka stands behind their products. If you’re sitting on the fence like I was, get off the fence and buy the Manduka Pro with confidence. You’ll love it, I sure do.
