I have been using this mat 4 days a week for 6 years. When I first got it, there was a strong latex smell to it, but it went away or I got used to it pretty quickly. I get asked where it came from all the time, it's so beautiful! The best part is the durability and grip. I am considering the 8mm mat in this line now. Whenever I use a standard plastic mat, it reminds me how nice this one is.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
