Love the extra length. This is first mat and I think it's perfect. Was concerned about cork but it's really wonderful. I roll it up after each use and the end does curl a bit. Comes with a good carrying strap. I'm new to yoga but highly recommend spending the extra this costs as it's certainly with it.
Because of packaging, the mat was damaged.
This is our first cork mat so really can't compare to others. I can say that the extra length is really nice for me. I am 5'11 and move around a lot and it keeps me from hanging my feet off the edges when doing certain poses. Doesn't have any real smell to it like some of the non-cork mats have. It is a little slick and not as drippy as I thought it might be. But I am guessing it needs a little more break in. I will most likely order a second one. The front an back edges have yet to lay completely flat. No matter which way I roll it. But it doesn't cause and issue and I suspect it will relax more as time goes by. The mat does not slid at all. So once down it stays in place.
Nice, light, non-slippery, feel great during practice.
Good quality. Fast shipping. Looks nice. I do wish it was wider. I wanted 84x36 and was hopeful I wouldn’t miss that 12” but I do. I had a 84x36 and a tenant at our vacation home stole ours. Other than the width, it’s a very good mat.
