Toplus Yoga Mat Review

I’ve been on the hunt for a new yoga mat for some time now. My favorite mat has died, and sadly has been out of stock for months! Thus, I’ve been on the hunt for a new brand or model that will give me the same comfort and ease as my long-time favorite. 

In this hunt I came across Toplus, a newer yoga mat company out of Florida. I was excited to check out their mat and see if it would be the right fit for my yoga needs. I ordered the TOPLUS Eco Yoga Mat, Rainbow, and got to moving! 

Here is a quick review of my experience on the mat….

 

Selection

When I first landed on the Toplus website I found they had a couple different categories of yoga mats available (basic, professional, suede, kids) plus a selection of yoga accessories. There was a variety of colors, prints, and materials to choose from. The mats all had a modern and fun feel to them.

I opted for the TOPLUS Eco Yoga Mat – Rainbow, one from the “Basic Yoga Mat” line, because I liked the design and was looking for a mat with a bit more cushion than my current one (the floor in my studio is hard!). 

Website Description:

The newly upgraded eco yoga mat features a gravel texture sticky non-slip surface for excellent traction and superior grip and stylish design to keep you motivated and focused. Using a mixed color rainbow effect. Each yoga mat is different and fashionable. Let you have a unique yoga mat. You are unique, and your yoga mat is as special as you are.”

Price Point

These mats are a great deal, running between $30 to $65 dollars, with a current sale that discounts each mat even more. While it may seem crazy to spend $65 on a mat when you’re just starting out, a good yoga mat is like a good pair of shoes, and you definitely get what you pay for! And $65 isn’t that much when you look at other mats out there for upwards of $200. 

The TOPLUS Eco Yoga Mat, Rainbow came in at $29.99 (regularly $36.99), with flat rate shipping of $5.00 to my house in North Carolina.

 

Shipping & Packaging

The mat arrived in less than a week in a large box (which was slightly beat up, but we can blame the postal system for that, not Toplus). The mat was inside a plastic bag and looked to have been packed with care.

 

The “Touch Test”

The feel of a products material in my hand is important, which is why I always give something new a “Touch Test”. Before rolling it out or doing anything, I simply feel the texture of the material in my hands and determine if it’s something I would enjoy.

My first reaction to the rolled up Toplus mat was that it felt a bit sticky and thick (two good things in a yoga mat). When I unrolled it, I also noticed a nice cushion feel and was excited to practice on the mat.

 

Material 

The PVC (poly-vinyl chloride) material of the TOPLUS Eco Yoga Mat, Rainbow is my least favorite element of the mat. I tend to prefer a rubber mat as it seems to withstand time a bit better. That said, it does feel nice on my hands and feet, and they claim to be a higher quality PVC mat, so time will tell how this mat and the material withstands regular use. 

 

Grip

I am a stickler for a grippy yoga mat. The worst thing is sliding around when you’re in a downward dog or a hand balancing posture. The website claimed that the “upgraded yoga mat features a gravel texture sticky non-slip surface for excellent traction and superior grip and stylish design to keep you motivated and focused.”

This mat delivers on that promise. It has a great grip and I have not found myself slipping through a sweaty power yoga class!

 

Cushion

The thickness of this mat is probably my favorite part of the product. It has a ¼ inch moderate thickness that provides just enough cushion that I don’t feel the super hard floor under me, but isn’t so much that I feel like I’m constantly sinking into the mat. 

As a kinesthetic learner, it was really great to feel the cushion under me the first time I practiced a balancing pose. When I pulled up with my smart toes I could feel myself really pull into the mat (I actually could feel my suction cup toes that I always talk about!). It was a feeling that everyone should experience!

Check out this “Foam Roller Flow” class over on GXunited.TV and hear me talk about how squishy and comfy the mat feels to me!

Smell & Grit

One of the challenges with new mats (especially rubber ones) is they often have a really bad “new mat smell”. The TOPLUS Eco Yoga Mat, Rainbow was no different, however, the smell was very mild and went away within a few days. 

I didn’t feel the need to do a major wash of the mat to remove the smell or get off any ‘grit’ from the mat (also a common situation with a new mat). While I did wash it down due to covid19, that’s a different situation!

Weight

The TOPLUS Eco Yoga Mat, Rainbow comes in at 3.53-pounds, which is a bit heavier than some of their other mats, but fairly light when it comes to yoga mats (my previous Jade Yoga mat weighed in around 7-pounds). 

I don’t mind a bit heavier of a mat if it means high quality support comes with that extra weight, so this was not a major concern for me. However, if you’re looking for a mat that you will carry with you throughout the day, it might be a little heavy to you. 

Extras

Carrying Strap

Each Toplus Yoga Mat comes with a carrying strap, which is a nice bonus feature. I personally have a few yoga mat bags that I love to carry, but if this is your first yoga mat and you don’t have extra accessories, this carrying strap is a great perk.

Warranty

All Toplus Yoga Mats come with a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee (for any reason). This is a great way to test out the mat but not feel committed if it simply isn’t for you.

Another great perk is the 12-month warranty guarantee on all mats. They will replace any mat that has a defect in quality during the 12-month warranty period. This is another great feature of the company. You can read their full warranty information on their website.

Overall Conclusion of Toplus Eco Yoga Mat

I enjoy practicing on my Toplus yoga mat and would recommend it to others! It’s a great low cost mat that is a bit higher in quality than a simple Target yoga mat. Plus they have some great design features that make them worth checking out! 

Check out Toplus and enjoy the feel of a new mat under your feet! (Use code SUMMERSIDES at checkout!).
