Practicing yoga has always brought me a sense of inner peace and wellness. I always look forward to classes or even practicing at home. No matter where I am working out, I wholeheartedly believe in using a mat when performing any floor exercises. The problem I’ve found with vinyl mats is I slip and slide, especially as I sweat. To keep from slipping and sliding, I use a towel, which means I have to keep up with both the towel and the mat during my workout. I also waste a lot of precious time straightening out my towel and wiping down the mat. So, when I found the Combo Mat, an ultra cool yoga mat that is a mat and towel all-in-one, I was delighted.
I couldn’t wait to try it out at my next class. My yoga workout went really well and I liked the fact that I wasn’t spending time and energy straightening out my towel every few minutes. The new Combo Mat grips me tighter as I work up a sweat, so I don’t slip and slide and I don’t have to worry with wiping the mat off in the middle of the workout.
The Combo Mat, as it is perfectly named, features an ultra cool chevron pattern in bright colors that goes with all my work out gear. It’s covered with a silky-smooth microfiber material on top that’s completely bonded to a natural tree rubber base, which is very cushy. This mat offers all the benefits of a sweat-thirsty towel and a comfy, cushioned yoga mat in one. I especially like the fact that it is easy to clean with a quick wipe down and can be tossed in the washing machine for a thorough cleaning.
The Combo Mat is extra long, too. I measured it at 70” in length, and I had plenty of room to move about. When I finished with my workout, it didn’t take long to roll the mat up and head for the door. It’s lightweight, weighing only 4 pounds, and it comes with a handy carrying strap that can be thrown over your shoulder to keep your hands free for other stuff.
