    I read reviews on this product all over the internet before I purchased.  I took a risk because a lot of people were saying that the towel slipped and did not stay in place.  But the YogiToes brand of towels are around  $55 and I do HOT VINYASA YOGA 6x a week so that gets expensive. I have been doing yoga for 12 years. This yoga towel is BETTER than Yogitoes.  First of all, I think having a sticky mat helps.  I use the Manduka thick mat and it's sticky.  The towel is even better than yogitoes because this towel has NO PLASTIC NUBS on the bottom and because of that, I feel my hands securely on the mat and I get a better grip. This towel is so absorbant!  I am drenched from head to toe in sweat during hot yoga...this towel dries quickly - I feel its way more absorbant that the yogitoes mat towels.  I think this towel is an amazing bargain and on top of that....It's a GREAT YOGA TOWEL!!  I do hot VINYASA yoga and I am moving around A LOT during class.  The only adjustments I make to the towel during yoga...are the same minimal ones I made with my YogiToes towel but it is minimal.  I will never waste money on YogiToes mat towels again!

    Love the color and design- but does not stay on my mat as I had hoped it would-- had to constantly be straightening it out during my practice..

    This towel seems nice - it is thin but absorbent.  it moves around a little it, but I expect that.  I'm still trying to find the right combo mat and towel, and size of towel, not sure this is it, but it is an improvement to no towel.  This may work better for me not covering the entire mat, which it does now.

    I love the look color and feel of this towel but it does not stay on my mat.  Then when it does soak up the sweat it is slippery.  Very disappointed.

    This was a great value for me! Also, it does exactly what I need it to do... soaks up all my sweat in hot yoga class so that I don't slip everywhere! I recommend it.

    the towel is good, especially for the price. Sticks to the mat when sprayed with water. The color is more green then blue as the picture sows, but really nice.

    Considering that Yoga mats are new to Yoga this mat towel is great. I used it this evening for the first time on a cheap Yoga mat I bought from Ross and it didn't slip at all and I always sweat up a storm! So no, you don't need an expensive towel.

    A little disappointed. I purchased this because it was on sale and because of the color. From the picture, I expected something brighter, sort of sky blue. The towel is actually a darker teal blue. I checked the actual Gaiam website afterwards. If i had known this was the actual color, I would have bought something else.

    About 5 inches or so shorter than my yoga mat.  I rotate between three yoga towels.  This is my second favorite.  Sticks well to my mat, but too short.
