This mat is great, I tried it at a retreat center for an entire weekend, it's the perfect size and I got the slightly bigger one. The grip is good, I like that the floor side never has to touch the top side. I quickly got the hang of folding it back up. The attached straps did not get in the way, I thought they might but they didn't. I also got an excellent deal because I bought one with a "damaged box". I have to say the box was barely dinged, but it shows that Yogo cares about offering a quality product. I look forward to taking this mat on some real outdoor adventures next week.
