Summary: After reading all the reviews for various mats sold through Amazon, I was very leery about the possibility of getting something that smelled or was slippery or had poor cushioning. Well, fear not! This mat is perfect. No smell at all. Perfect cushioning. Not slippery.
Summary: This mat is great for Pilates. It gives a nice cushion when doing floor exercises, and not too thick so that I can balance myself on the mat. The texture is smooth and does not look like a cheap quality. However, it does smell a little bit at first, but the odor disappear after a few days.
Summary: It's the perfect mat for pilates. Thick enough to cushion the back. I'm 5'5" and the mat is definitely long enough for me. The color green didn't look at all like what's shown in Amazon, but I can live with it. Low odor and it went away after a few days. Easy roll up and love the velcro straps!
Summary: This is a good mat. I like the thickness which protects my tailbone when we do V-ups in exercise class. It has a memory that keeps the end curled up after you unroll it, but it is plenty long so it really doesn't matter.
Summary: I'm very happy with the Stott Pilates mat. It is durable, lays flat, with no chemical odor. It is a good thickness for pilates providing good cushining for your tail bone and hip bones and it is not too squishy, either.
