Gaiam Grippy Yoga Mat Towel is rated out of 5 by 31.
Rated 1 out of 5 by RandyA from Your old one was better I have been using your Grippy Yoga Mat Towel for years. I had tired many different ones and this one was the best. It did not slide around or bunch up on the mat and it could thrown in the washer and dryer. I'm sorry to say that your new version is far inferior. The top layer of fabric separates from the bottom layer leaving a "bubble" type effect so the towel does not lay flat. Also, the sides tend to roll in. And this version can not go in the dryer. I have tried several of the colors just to make sure it was not a problem with one particular towel, or one color, but they all do this to one degree or another. It's very disappointing as you had the best towel on the market for hot yoga, but not anymore

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bikram john from Not so grippy Received this towel as a present and I use it daily in hot yoga classes. The top layer is very absorbent which is good, but it seems to have a mind of it's own and moves all over the place during class. I seem to spend an inordinate amount of time moving it back into position . It's quite frustrating. The top layer seems to move independently of the bottom layer and doesn't really seem to be the same size as the bottom layer so it is always in a state of being creased .I left a comment on the Australian webpage but didn't get a response . I have tried to add a photo but each time the page freezes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Br62 from Doesn't work well This is made in two plys - terry cloth top and non-skid back, which results in multiple problems. For one, it becomes thicker after a wash and doesn't lay flat. The two plys are attached with a quilt-like stitch that causes wrinkles, puckers, and lumps. The two plys move across one another causing bunches and not lying flat. The seam around the outside is bulky and puckers. It needs constant fixing during a class. Some of the quilted stitching holding the two plys together has come loose. The care instructions recommend 'dry flat.' Just not interested in a towel that needs special care like that and can't just be thrown in the dryer. $35 is too expensive for this poor product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Namaste62 from A must for Bikram Yoga This towel is a must for Bikram lovers! Before I purchased this, I was slipping and sliding on my mat with a regular towel (which would also bunch up on the mat and distract me from my practice). This towels doesn't move no matter how wet it gets. LOVE IT!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by meg7 from Awful!!!!! I had what I thought was the same towel that I had purchased previously at a retail store. I loved it for the grip & absorbency (I do hot yoga). I had returned the previous one because the rubber backing had begun to deteriorate and exchanged it for this new one. The new one is not made as well - the top towel layer is not stitched to the rubber backing and thus shifts, stretches and bunches under my feet during class. Totally no good!! I would have thought that it was defective but I bought two different colors and they are both made the same way. VERY disappointing!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rei from Very good if you sweat a lot I sweat a lot, and I love going for 1.5hrs hot yoga classes. This towel really serves me well as it's thick and absorbent and the rubber underlay adds an additional barrier between the class mat and my skin. I'd like to think this serves as an additional hygiene barrier. I have been using this for about 6 months now and my towel surface separated from the rubber bottom only after i forgot to fold it and put it in a net for washing. I normally either hang or flat dry it. Prior to forgetting the net, towel had no issues whatsoever. Even the separation is a minor issue as once placed on the mat, there are no problems. The only negative about this mat is it is bulky. If you go to a studio far from home or you're not driving, this is troublesome to lug around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChrisJ2 from Great product This towel is excellent for yoga beginners and intermediates who find their feet slipping off their mat during their practice. It is light- weight and durable. I even roll it up to place it under my knees for extra cushion when I'm in positions that put too much strain on my knee joints.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sherri from Terrible Design I can't say enough bad things about this. This isn't a towel with rubber backing. It a piece of stretchy soft cloth sewn to a piece of rubber fabric at the edges. It wrinkles, puckers, and curls up at the edges. And slippery? Oh yeah! My hands kept sliding out. Also, my heels are cracked from Winter weather and the cloth stuck to my feet like velcro. Why Gaiam? Why?
