NOT 8mm thick
PostedOctober 15, 2013
I bought this pad recently and used it three times immediately after receiving it.  It  did not feel any thicker than my old mat, which was 5mm, and I still had pelvic , back, and knee compression pain using it.  It was, however, a good non-slip surface.   My husband looked at it, and mentioned that there was no way this mat was 8mm thick.  he measured it, and sure enough, it measured 5mm thick.  I am SO disappointed, be -cause this mat cost so much!  
The other problem is that it is so stiff it still will not lay flat.

Does this rubber mat have an odor to it?

I am chemically sensitive and purchased a mat that I could not use because of the odor.

It does have an odor, but not a chemical one.  It smells like real rubber.

Do you have a yoga sling for the 8mm thick mat?

I would like to order a yoga sling that fits the 8mm thick mat.

Do you have one?

No, but I found that Gaiam has a  mat carrier that is brown with gold leaf and has a zippered pocket that fits it well.

I have a latex allergy also, and I develop cracks on my feet and hands that bleed.  So far, after continuous five-day-a-week use for the last two weeks, I have had no such problems.

Do you have an oversized yoga mat?

I'm 6'4'' tall and need a larger-than-standard mat, about 7' x 3' or close.
Any available through Sports Authority?

I have found only one oversized mat ever ( I am 5'11"), and that was here at Gaiam.  It was too thin, smelled funny, and felt slippery.
