Disappointed
I was disappointed in the density of the mat. It is nothing like the ones from 10-15 years ago. When I lay the mat out, it is so light that it does not lay flat, and it buckles until my weight has flattened it out. I prefer a heavier density.

Nice mat
The mat is a standard size, a nice color (I chose indigo), and lightweight. I did not slide while performing asanas, and I liked the cushiness on my feet and knees. It is a nice mat.

Arrived Quickly
I’m very pleased with my new mat. My old one (different brand) was completely worn out and becoming slippery.

Love it!
I've had a Tapas Ultra Mat for years and love it but it was time to get a new one. I didn't get rid of the old one though, I am still using it for extra cushion under the new one. I love my new mat but it will take a little time for it to get as sticky as my old one.

Would recommend to others.
Love this yoga mat! Feels thick, yet rolls up tight enough to fit in my bag.

Love It. Best Ever.
I have used may kinds of mats in different classes. This one is by far the best. I'm glad its made in the USA. Haven't tried the eco-friendly one because it wasn't available when I purchased mine almost three years ago and it still seems new.

Nice Mat!
I've had a Tapas Original mat for about 13 years and was very happy with it except that I needed just a little more cushion for my knees. I've used the Tapas Ultra a few times now and find it to be equally sticky with the perfect amount of extra cushion. It is quite squishy, as another reviewer says, your hand/foot imprint stays for several seconds. But I can still do a one leg balancing posture without issue so it's obviously not too unstable.

Just Right
Just right. A little sticky -- but not too much. Cushy-- but again not too much. Third one that I have had over time. I have used other mats -- some better for different practices, but this is my favorite.

Overall Good Product
The mat itself is great. However, there was a Hugger Mugger tag at the end of the mat. When I went to take it off, it was extremely sticky and ripped the end of the mat.

Not Grippy Enough
The mat is soft and spongy, which I like, but I can't get a good grip with my feet in downward dog. They keep sliding, which is not good. Maybe over time the mat will get grippier. I hope so.

Does the Job
As a new yogi, I wanted a mat that would do the job without having to spending a lot of money. The mat is thinner than what I have been renting at the yoga studio that I attend to so it's not as comfortable on my knees. It's fine for now, but I'll probably be upgrading to a thicker, sturdier mat as I advanced in yoga. If you're new to yoga or looking for a mat to invest in for a good chunk of time, I'd go with a thicker mat rather than having to replace a thinner mat. You'll have to shell out the same amount in the end.

It Is Good!
Like it so far out of the box. For me it was time for a new mat, so I ordered extra cushioning and really enjoy the NON SLIP feature.

Love My Products
I have this Ultra Mat and I love it! It does not absorb liquids and I love it for Hot Yoga! I also have the blocks and they are so perfect! Thank you Hugger Mugger!

Wonderful, Long-Lasting Quality After Ten Years of Use!
Purchased my Tapas Ultra mat ten years ago for the extra length and thickness. It continues to perform very well. I teach and have my practice indoors. Easy to clean, dries well overnight, is sticky, does not decompose and break up like the other eco-friendly mats currently on the market. Am very pleased, and recommend it to my students. Have no qualms whatsoever.

Mat Has No Endurance
My last mat lasted at least 12 years and probably could have gone longer. The Tapas Ultra mat started developing holes, or shredding, at six months. I am very disappointed. It is not going to last long.

Happy Customer
I have had my indigo color Tapas Ultra mat for two years and I love it. I do yoga class about two times a week and my mat still looks as good as new. It is still fairly sticky and it has no tears or holes. I love the slight amount of cushioning it gives me. When you step on it or place your hand on it it leaves an impression for 5-10 seconds – which has never affected it's use, just something I was initially surprised about. I have used both the Ultra and the regular mats, I prefer the ultra for the cushion and non-slip surface. If my hands are sweating or feel slippery, I fold the top of mat under about 4 inches and then use the bump to help keep my hands in place. Overall I would (and have) recommended this mat to my friends.

Do Not Recommend
As I was using the product for the first time, I noticed it did not return to its original shape. This started with the knee imprints after a child's pose to future hand and foot imprints. When I unrolled it three days later for my next yoga session many of the imprints remained. After two sessions, the mat looks like it been to eternity and back! At least it's sticky and doesn't slide. However, I'm ordering a different mat ASAP and am asking to return this one.

Not the Best Value
I had lots of fun with this mat! But there were some things that made it kind of annoying to use. Mostly, when you are in a pose with your knees at the ground, even if you fold the mat over to pad you still sink through its super squishyness until you are basically just on the hard floor. Also, I have had my mat for only about six months (of every day use) and it is totally falling apart. The spots where my hands and feet go are especially torn up and I keep finding bits of it everywhere. Also it makes squeaky noises.

Great Mat
I bought the Ultra 3 years ago, when I started to practice yoga regularly. I chose it because it stays put, is not slippery, and is nice and soft (I got comments / compliments on that). The one downside is that is seems to shred fairly easily, now that I have progressed to daily practice and vinyasa yoga. I have already "shredded" 2 of them, but I think I will still go for another one since I have not found an alternative that I would like enough.

Too Slippery - Disappointed
I chose this Ultra Mat because I was looking for a bit more cushion than the standard Tapas mat offered. The reviews seemed positive and several even stated that it was sticky. I have found it to be too slippery and am very disappointed! It is a bit more cushy and acts like memory foam - leaving an impression and then returning to flat. Honestly I am using this mat underneath my old mat because I need the grip.

Wonderful!
A great overall mat, it has served me so well over the years and although it's starting to wear, I will absolutely be buying a new one when the time is right.

Great mat!
The Ultra mat is my favorite because it is sticky and I don't slide around when I'm using it. It's not too thin and not too thick. It isn't laboriously heavy. I can always depend on my Ultra mat to keep my hands and feet from sliding around.
