How Does the Extra Thick Deluxe Yoga Mat Work?
Weighing in at almost four pounds this mat offers the added protection that you have been looking for. A non-slip bottom allows the mat to stay firmly in place during your workouts. This mat is different from other manufacturers. It is much thicker than others claim to be and comes in a multitude of colors.

What Other Are Saying – Does 1/4:” Extra Thick Deluxe Yoga Mat Deliver?
Mimi, an Amazon reviewer who tried the mat says:
“The thickness of this mat is very comfortable. It’s much better than the 1/8" mat, which I find too thin. This 1/4" mat gives me enough padding when I sit, and it doesn’t throw me off balance when I stand. I also like the length of this mat which is 4" longer than the standard size mat. It’s so good to have so much room to stretch when I lay down.”
Viola, a yoga student, likes that the mat is so thick. It feels so kind to her knees! Whether you are standing, kneeling, laying down or stretching you will find the cushion of this thick deluxe yoga mat very comfortable. Lisa likes that it comes in a wide range of colors. People like to exercise when they have the right equipment. She says:
“It is far better than doing yoga on a bare floor – whether that might be wood, stone, carpet or whatever.”
It seems that nearly 200 reviews can’t be wrong. With very little to dislike about this mat it may be something that I put on my wish list.
Does It Help You Lose Weight?
This mat will not help you lose weight. However, the exercises that you do on it may! This is just a mat to assist you in your daily exercise workouts and is not something that promotes weight loss of any kind.
Pros and Cons
- Good price.
- Multitude of colors for every taste and style.
- Extra thick padding for those much needed floor exercises.
- May be a little bulky to carry around
- Many users felt that the mat had a chemical smell when it first arrived, but this is normal. When you air it out for a few days, the smell will go away.
- A few reviewers feel that the non-stick padding was not enough to keep the mat from sliding around during asanas and other workouts, especially when you sweat and the mat gets wet.
Problems and Complaints
Many of the reviewers had the same complaint! They felt that the mat was not sticky enough to keep them from sliding around during their floor exercises. However, other users found the mat to be stinky, literally! The mat has a fowl smell when it arrived on their door step. Some where able to find a few home remedies to help get the smell out, but is it worth spending money on a mat that stinks? You be the judge!
From the reviews that I have red many of the users loved it. The loved the colors and the thickness. They felt that it had a lot more to offer then mats that claimed to be the same thickness but failed to deliver. I particularly love the selection of colors and may purchase one of these things myself. Read 200 more reviews on Amazon.
