It's Still #1

I have owned 8 yoga mats over the past 10 years. I practice daily asanas, teach yoga and am a yoga therapist . Of the 8 yoga mats I have bought before the current Manduka Pro Black Mat only 2 remain. Both are Manduka one a Pro Mat Blue Ocean color I teach with and the other a Manduka Prolite I use for travel (it fits in a standard suite case ) . The other mats were name brands thought to be better but did not last. My latest Manduka Black Pro Mat is a joy to practice on. I am comfortable, grounded and without slippage and have no second thoughts about the foundation of my practice, the Manduka Black Pro Mat . It's easier to stay present when you have a secure foundation .
Pros:Joint protecting cushion and density. Durable, consistent, reliable, and a lifelong companion in the Yoga journey.
Cons:It's density and weight set it apart from the others reminding us of the cost of joint comfort, durability .
I would recommend this item to a friend.
