Disadvantages

Regular length

The size of this eKo lite yoga mat is in regular length and found to be short for men who stand around 5’10 up and for women with plus sized body types.

Too thin

The yogi users of this product may have to use some knee pads when doing some poses so the knees won’t hurt.

Irritating smell of rubber

Another disadvantage of this product is the irritating smell of rubber during the break-in period which lasts up to one month. It can cause nausea and distraction or lack of concentration during yoga practice.

Less Durable

When the mat is subject to a prolonged use and as frequent as 2-3 times a week in the next six months, this mat starts to peel and its colors to fade. From that, it’s only good for short-term use.

Most if not all of the products have pros and cons. Just check and balance the attributes of such good before you execute your purchase decision. And go for “Green”.
