I tend to sweat buckets doing yoga and I'm looking for the stickiest mat out there, and I would prefer not having to use a towel or rug.
I have read many reviews lately, and some people even find the non-slip mats from Manduka and Jade to be on the slippy side.
The Yohola yoga mat made from cork is supposed to get even grippier when wet. But with a price of $130 + $54 in overseas shipping + 24% in import taxes the total comes down to a whooping $228.
I've also been looking into the Supergreen hemp yoga mat. This one is also supposed to get stickier the more you sweat. But the manufacturer is saying "This yoga mat is padded with softness". Does that mean its thick and foamish? Also, I'm afraid the white color would be impractical in the long run?
This mat is also quite expencive, but.. I am a sucker for anything made from hemp!
The last mat I've come over is the zakti mat, also supposed to be grippy, but no claims of getting even grippier when wet. But the surface has a structure (not sure if this is the correct translation - not a straight surface) that helps the grip. The price is also half of the other two.
Is anyone here using any of these mats, or have suggestion to other mats with grip like flypaper?
I should also add that I'm looking for a relatively thin or hard mat as I prefer stepping of my mat when doing balancing poses with the mats I've tried so far.
(I tried adding links to the different mats, but apparently I'm not allowed to do so until I have 15 post)
