I have two Yoga towels (actually now three but wait for it ) A green Manduka equa and a brown Yogitoes. I tend to use the eQua for primary and Vinyasa Krama and the Yogitoes for 2nd and 3rd.
Due to the dodgy knee the last few weeks I've just been using the Yogitoes and so it's getting a lot of use. An extra towel is called for.
I came across a this one on ebay last week listed as a Silicone dot mat/towel. Looks familiar, thinks I. Now it's a bit of a drama getting a Yogitoes from the states and I've always felt they are a little over priced. To be fair though, it was their idea, the quality is great and they have nice designs.
Anyway decided to give one the one on ebay a try. I ordered it on Tuesday it arrived Wednesday and I practiced Intermediate on it this morning (Thursday). Very quick delivery you have to agree.
And it's great. The quality appears to be very good, perhaps not as perfect as the Yogitoes but as near as damn it. The silicone dots seem slightly more pointy than the Yogitoes and I found it gripped both the manduka and my feet a little better. I've been giving the Yogitoes a quick spray in the morning but I didn't feel the need to spray this at all. It is perhaps not as soft but that might be because it's new and hasn't been washed a hundred times (they recommend washing twice before use). Possibly it's not as absorbent but again not enough to worry about, although might change my mind mid summer.
All in all a great deal 18 GBP and a couple of quid for postage.
I really like the blue and would love the
green one too. There's also pink and purple.
The name to look out for on ebay is Kneal30, but do the search for Silicone Dot towel . Her feedback is 100% and She's hopes to have her own website up and running in a month or so.
