When I went into City Sports with a gift card from my aunt (Thanks, Jeannie!)for my birthday, I had no idea what I wanted. But when I saw the Yogitoes premium yoga towel, I knew I wanted to try it out. I’ve been reading a lot about yoga towels and I am constantly sliding on my yoga mat, especially in downward dog. I picked up the Yogitoes premium towel in purple with orange trim, got it home and proceeded to lay it down on top of my mat (nub side down in case you were wondering). This thing WORKS! My hands and feet stayed firmly in place. The material is very comfortable against your skin and the silicone bumps on the underside are miniscule enough that it’s not distracting to feel them.
I don’t sweat much, but I will say that I am not sure how much moisture the towel would wick for someone doing Power Vinyasa or Bikram. It’s a bit thin, but I do think that it would certainly continue to do its job and keep you firmly in place. Overall, it’s a great piece of equipment and I felt like it was a good use of my gift card- I went on the website when I got home and discovered several different kinds of towels- sizes, styles, colors. There is definitely a variety to choose from, and judging from their premium towel, they are probably of excellent quality and a really good investment.
I do want to mention that the dye used in these towels RUNS when you put them in the wash. I’ve only washed it once, but when I went online, I found out that it takes approximately 3 or 4 washes until this stops- so BEWARE! BUT- It’s a small price to pay for such a great product.
