A very sturdy mat that I have now used almost daily for a couple of weeks. A slight plastic smell that seem to be abating. Firm enough for standing poses, soft enough for comfort. Alex, the owner was responsive and helpful with my questions. I look forward to years of regular use. 5 stars
I have used this mat for 3 consecutive hot yoga classes and this is the best mat I have used over my 15 years of practice. The thickness is perfect as well as the firmness. Lots of sweat already and this mat hasn't blinked. I couldn't recommend a mat more.
I love this mat. The grip is very strong and there is no sliding whatsoever. It is also lighter than I anticipated. As stated in their ad, there is no smell of rubber and there is no need to treat this mat to help the grip. It was ready to go, when I received it with no issues. It also arrived ahead of schedule.
I was so excited to receive my new yoga mat in the mail. I love the packaging, it comes in a beautiful quality circle box that makes the yoga mat easy to store and of course, I love my new mat! I used to use a lululemon yoga mat or a cheap one at the studio. Since I've been using the Rock Leopard yoga mat, the experience is one I haven't had before. The mat doesn't smell! Unlike lululemon or a cheap mat which smells of toxic fumes especially when I'm doing poses that require me to have my face on the mat. I find myself holding my breath so I don't have to inhale the toxic fumes on the other mats but with Rock Leopard I can fully breathe and inhale through my poses without worrying about toxic smelly fumes. My new yoga mat is also so COMFORTABLE! Like a dream to do yoga with. That 5.5mm ± 05mm has definitely been designed with comfort in mind, protecting the joints indeed. A different experience compared to the two other mats I've used before. The grip is also very good. What I really liked was that the mat fit my length. I am 5'7 tall and found I wasn't having to constantly adjust to stay on the mat, in fact I had plenty of yoga mat space which was really nice. Overall I am a very happy and satisfied customer with my new Rock Leopard yoga mat. I also have other yoga students inquiring about my new mat too. The only thing that may be a drawback is that I do not have a car and have to walk 20 minutes uphill to yoga sessions so it can be a bit heavy to carry, but if one has a car then it's no problem at all.
I shared my new yoga mat with my brother for him to try it out and this is what he had to say:
"So I have been using the rock leopard yoga mat for the last week and I have to say I am so excited that I have found a replacement to my old mat, from lululemon. I had the other mat since 2020 and one thing that always bothered me about it was how much it stank like chemicals. I loved everything else about it but I could never get over the smell of toxic fumes as I placed my face close to the mat. When I started using the rock leopard mat I was a bit sceptical as so many other mats I had used were often too slippery or felt cheap in comparison to the one from lululemon. I am happy to say that it has all the qualities I love about a good yoga mat without the chemical reeking right out of the box. In summary, good bye old mat, and your chemical fumes, and hello Rock Leopard. I am excited to see how much more I fall in love with this mat as time goes on."
If you are looking for a cushiony mat that it is easy to keep clean and maintain…this is the right choice for you!
