I really like this exercise mat! I am a regular exerciser and have gone through tons of mats. This one is definitely thicker than most, and also longer than most! That’s a plus because I’m 5ft9 and I sometimes feel like mats are way too short for me when laying down to do sit-ups or stretches. Unlike other reviewers, my mat came with absolutely so smell whatsoever, even when I have my face on it doing yoga. I got the red color and it’s vibrant and beautiful. The color does not transfer like some super-cheap mats I’ve owned that eventually stain my hands and knees when things get sweaty. I also love using this for cardio with jumps. It has great cushion for landing which is soft on the feet and knees. I also appreciate the extra padding when doing yoga poses like cat/cow because otherwise my hardwood floors really hurt my knees. While it does squish slightly and leave hand and foot dents momentarily, it quickly springs back to its normal shape. Some reviewers mentioned the extra padding being a nuisance when standing on your feet in tough-to-balance yoga poses like tree, but I have have absolutely no problems and it actually feels better on my feet than the hardwood floor or super-thin mats. It has good grip and doesn’t move around or slip even when barefoot. I really like that the ridges on the top of the mat run in parallel lines in only one direction, rather than being cross-hatched or bumpy. Mats with other patterns like that are much harder to wipe clean when dirt gets stuck in the ridges. I also appreciate the included carrying strap to keep it rolled up and to carry it around. Some reviewers complain that the mat is too big and bulky, but I like the thickness and length when using it, so of course it’s a bit bigger than the thin-as-paper mats when rolled up. Duh! Overall, another solid Amazon Basics product. Every Amazon product I’ve purchased so far has been of great quality for the price. Edit: see the photo of this red mat next to my old purple mat. It’s a couple inches longer than a standard mat and about 3x as thick!
This was the listing for it ( AmazonBasics 1/2-Inch Extra Thick Exercise Mat with Carrying Strap, Steel ), but when you add to your cart, the part about the carrying strap disappears. And the item delivered DID NOT have a carrying strap. Not very happy with Amazon at this moment,
Ok, I admit it's early in our relationship - but I like this mat. The smell is WAY overstated by some folks - I used this mat in yoga class 20 minutes after I cut it out of the plastic and it smelled a LOT better than the shared mats in my yoga class. I later learned this mat is too thick for yoga and I need a 1/4 inch thick mat... ok, I get it but I'm over 6' 2" and I am built more like a lineman than a tall ballerina - so this mat works fine. When I do tree pose my weight converts this mat into a sub-quarter inch thick mat and I don't have any issues with a too-soft mat.I'm sure the strap that came with it is fine - I gave it to my wife who uses it with her 1/4 inch mat ...It seems to be a good mat even though it's disadvantaged having no high-end trademark by a famous equipment company with model spokespersons ... it's just a low price thick green Amazon mat and so far it's rocking the task -
