Jade mats are made with natural rubber from the Far East and Western technology to form a mat that is perfect for your yoga practice. The Travel Mat is Jade’s lightest mat, and–at 24-by-68-by-1/8 inches (W x H x D)–is easily transportable and great for those who like closer contact with the ground. As Jade mats are made with open cell, natural rubber, you can say goodbye to slipping on your practice mat–even if it gets wet with perspiration. Natural rubber’s superior slip resistance properties ensure a solid grip every time, and additionally provide resilience, compression set resistance and cushioning, resulting in a solid blend of comfort and performance.
The natural rubber used to create Jade mats is a renewable resource containing no PVC or ozone depleting substances, and the mats are made in the U.S.A. in compliance with all U.S. environmental and labor laws. Jade believes in being good to your body and good to the Earth, and–through a partnership with Trees for the Future–when you buy a mat, Jade plants a tree.

I couldn’t do a handstand before I bought this mat. After I bought this mat I still can’t.
Jade Green Mat
This mat is a nice sticky mat & lightweight for travel. If your knees are sore get a thicker mat. This is mainly for travel. I knew before purchase that others reviewed it attracts hair, dirt, & lint etc. It does! Would be 5 stars if not so attracting to dirt. But then it wouldnt be as sticky for your hands….
15+ years of experience can’t be wrong!
I’ve been using this mat very regularly (almost daily, hot-ish vinyasa practice) for 18 months now. I was inspired to try the travel version after having great success with my more substantial Jade Harmony mat. After 18 sweaty months, my Jade Travel mat has held up pretty much perfectly. Very little wear-and-tear aside from minor fraying on the sides, but such will happen with natural and biodegradable rubber. The mat itself has become slightly more pliable with use, but has not worn down at all. As an aside, I am an experienced practitioner and do not drag my hands or feet at all during practice, and I think this may make a difference. I’ve seen other well-used Jade mats with worn-down patches where people’s hands and feet are often located, however I have not experienced any wearing on my mat. Since I have found Jade to be far superior to any other mat in my 15+ years of practice, I think it’s well worth the investment–and moreso, perhaps it will encourage practitioners to practice somewhat more mindfully to slow or prevent damage to the mat. Another notable point of contention is the “open cell” design. Unless you’re a stinky sweater, this won’t really affect you. I get plenty of sweat on my mat on a regular basis, but my sweat is fairly odorless so it hasn’t made the mat stinky. That said, it appears to clean well with a simple soap solution. This mat is quite thin, which is awesome for travel, especially in an urban setting. However, like any travel mat, thinness sacrifices cushion, so if you already know you have a tendency for achy joints, you may need to double up with a rental mat when you get to class. With consistent practice on this mat, however, I believe I have helped encourage my connective tissues to become stronger–I alternate using this mat with using my much more cushioned Harmony mat. The grip is far superior to all other mats I’ve tried–moderately sweaty hands hold up against Jade, and it isn’t until I really start pouring buckets of sweat that I need to put a towel down (and even then, I can get away with just putting a small towel at the top of my mat). Despite these unique aspects to the Jade Travel mat, I cannot encourage people strongly enough to go with Jade. I wasted many years on other highly-sought-after and expensive mats and was never truly satisfied until I started using Jade. These mats present unparalleled grip, texture, and support, with the added bonus of coming in different lengths for taller people, and being the most environmentally-friendly mats out there.
i never review but this mat is worth reviewing.
I’ll never buy another mat that’s not from Jade Yoga.
My usual mat is the Jade Harmony mat but its pretty heavy to cart around. I’ve purchased several other travel yoga mats and they always suck after using my Jade Harmony – there’s just no stick and I spend the class trying not to slip out of every down dog. I finally broke down and bought this Jade Travel mat for my birthday and I’m kicking myself for not getting it sooner. It’s as nice as an every day mat. It’s just as good as my Harmony mat but lighter so easier to carry around. And no slipping, no matter how sweaty I get! This is worth the money.
I have asked 4 different yoga instructors and they have never seen anything like this before
I have used the Jade Travel Mat
Grippy, durable and trendy colors!
After slipping through many of my yoga classes, I tried this mat. Before this mat, I rented the much more expensive manduka mat, which was as grippy as a random $15 mat. This mat is light, it actually travelled continents with me this summer, and its durable. I’ve had it for a year now, and with my light yoga practice, it has held up well.
Perfect for regular yoga! One complaint though …
Love it. It’s lightweight and not slippery at all. UPDATED review: I’ve been using the mat for several weeks. I changed my rating from 5 stars to 4. It attracts dust and leaves marks; kind of makes the mat look worn. It does wipe off easily, but it’s starting to be a hassle having to clean it every other time I use it at the gym.
Just like using a regular Jade….
My everyday mat is manduka which I love, so I bought the manduka travel mat but was soo disappointed with the quality and lack of stickiness. I kept falling over and my hands kept slipping. I decided to buy this jade travel mat and used it for the first time today. It was like night and day compared to the manduka. This was just like using a regular jade mat, but folds up perfectly for my backpack or large purse. So happy I got it…definitely worth it!

I have a regular sized Jade yoga mat that I love. I bought this one to leave at my office for yoga classes at the office gym. It is super lightweight and my hands don’t slip at all. You will have to let the rubber smell off-gas for a couple days but after that you should not have any problems.
