My current mat, a Prana Eko Mat is showing some wear. It is a good mat, but it is almost a year old and is showing some wear. I’m pretty rough on a mat, using it 4 to 6 times a week with some serious sweating. I do use Yogi toes (anti-skid towel), because I have never been able to use just a mat.
So I was looking for something a little stronger. I decided to go with a set of Manduka products.
I went with the Black Mat, because it is supposed to be the most long lasting, heavy duty, non-slipping or bunching up-est mat out there. The bag for… transport? I’m going to be carrying my mat onto a plane twice in the near future, so I needed a bag. The towels, because you can never have enough towels for hot Yoga. This will be the second mat towel in my collection, and my first real hand towel (that isn’t a bathroom hand towel). Now, I won’t have to do laundry every night! With my current yogi-toes and new mat towel, I can do the laundry every other night. I already have enough Yoga clothes for 4 days without washing, with quite ranging outfits, but 4 days none-the-less.
I will update with how everything works out.
