The PROlite (formally called Purplelite) Travel Mat from Manduka is designed for high performance, but in a lightweight version that’s great for taking on the road. Ideal for yoga and Pilates practioners. It travels as easily to a nearby yoga class as it does to a yoga vacation retreat. Like all of our mats, the Prolite Travel Mat is designed for performance, longevity, and comfort. Its surface resists slipping when wet from perspiration, its firmness resists bunching and remains flat even when practicing on carpet or with sticky feet. Unlike most other mats, the Prolite Travel Mat has a specific top and bottom surface. These mats have been designed to last a lifetime (or two). The 71-inch Prolite Travel Mat is 24-inches wide by 71-inches long by 3/16-inch thick and weighs approximately 4pounds.

ideal mat i bought this mat in the hopes of enjoying the benefits of the high density “black mat” made by manduka without the bulkiness of that mat. first of all, either of the manduka mats is far better than the versions other companies have produced in response to the mat’s popularity. there is not the heavy industrial smell to the mat that can get in the air, your clothes, and skin. their density makes it far and away a completely different experience than the typical yoga mat. they are more stable and cushion without being squishy. they are very sturdy and resilient and will last a long time, so your yoga mats will not end up littering the environment over time. between the two manduka mats, i favor this one because it is much easier to transport and store and i do not notice any loss of comfort from the slight difference in thickness (3/16″ instead of 1/4″). if you are taller or heavier than average, do very vigorous yoga workouts, or have particularly sensitive joints, you might prefer…

Great but obviously not perfect I think most of the reviews on the Manduka site are either filtered and/or done by crazed yoga practitioners who buy into the Manduka brand. With that being said, I think the ProLite is a solid mat. Prior to purchasing the ProLite I was practicing with a thin Gaiam mat, which was good but was hurting my joints. I couldn’t take it anymore and at the urging of my instructors and friends (who know that I practice at least 6-8 times a week), they recommended I upgrade to a more expensive, quality mat. I researched through almost all the mats I could think of (from Lululemon, Jade, Prana, etc) before I finally decided that I should get the ProLite.

Great quality mat…But still slips when wet Overall I would have to say this is the best yoga mat I have ever used. I have used the mat for five weeks ~3-4 days per wk, and followed the directions for “breaking in” the mat. It is nice and sticky and provides very good stability and padding when dry.I bought this mat however, because it was supposed to grip even when wet. I practice ashtanga style yoga and sweat a lot. Once the mat gets wet I find it to be just as slippery as any cheapo mat.
