This mat is so comfortable, I want to sleep on it at night! It makes it much easier to put weight on my wrists during yoga. Definitely worth the cost. I took the cover off to clean it, and by the next day the foam had expanded so much I couldn't stuff it back in without looking lumpy. It took a while to smooth out. As another reviewer noted, you'll definitely have the nicest yoga mat in class. This mat is only 1" thick, not 2" like described. The terry cloth surface is not as sticky as I'd like for yoga. I may need to get some non-slip yoga socks. Once it wears out, I plan to use it as a sleeping bag mat during camping.
