When you practice yoga, purchasing the perfect yoga mat is the most important decision you will ever have to make. A yoga mat forms the basis of all your practices and workouts and choosing the wrong yoga matt could make the experience an unpleasant one. With the FBSPORT Yoga Mat with Carrying Strap, you can’t go wrong.
Never underestimate the importance of having a decent carrying strap on your yoga mat. A yoga mat is something that you will transport and carry with you between home and gym approximately 2-4 times a week, so you need one that is lightweight and with a carrying strap that can easily go over your shoulder.
When starting out with yoga, go the extra mile and spend that bit extra if need be to buy yourself a good quality yoga mat. In the spirit of yoga, purchase an eco-friendly, non-toxic, chemical-free yoga mat.
The new thermal plastic elastomer, otherwise known as TPE, is a much better choice than a PVC yoga mat. TPE is hypoallergenic, non-toxic, odorless, and most importantly it is free of any harmful chemicals. It also contains no latex or PVC.
TPE is also lighter than other materials, which is great because you want to be able to easily carry your yoga mat with you.
The FBSPORT Yoga Mat with Carrying Strap delivers on all this and also has many other attractive features.
FBSPORT Yoga Mat with Carrying Strap Features
The FBSPORT Yoga Mat with Carrying Strap is available in an array of colors, almost 20 different designs to choose from, making it easy to find one that matches your personality or studio. With 20 different designs, you could have one to match every outfit.
The layered design of the FBSPORT Yoga Mat with Carrying Strap aids in giving you added stability and non-slip grip. It also gives it great spring back ability to quickly bounce back to its original shape.
It has an anti-slip, double-sided design with the front side having a Bodhi leaves design, and the back side a ball pattern, giving you varying degrees of grip for your safety and to prevent the yoga at from slipping no matter what the surface of the floor.
The TPE material is lightweight, odorless and waterproof. These are important factors that you need in a yoga mat as the last thing you want is a smelly yoga mat. Imagine lying in a face-down position on your mat when it is smelly. That alone would be enough to ruin the entire yoga experience for you.
The fact that it is waterproof means that it will not absorb your sweat or any other germs and it also makes it easy to clean and dry.
FBSPORT have opted to go with the larger-than-normal-size design which makes it ideal for everyone regardless of how tall or short you are.
The FBSPORT Yoga Mat with Carrying Strap is 6mm thick which provides for extra cushioning. I have practiced on some very thin yoga mats and I much rather prefer a thicker mat. The quality of this mat gives you the added thickness without any worries that you will be unbalanced and unstable.
One of the best features of the FBSPORT yoga mat for me is the carry strap itself. Some brands you need to purchase a strap as an add-on or they advertise that the strap is included but it ends up being a thin string that you can’t even get over your shoulder.
With the FBSPORT Yoga Mat with Carrying Strap, the strap is included as advertised and it is a decent strap. The black nylon strap, which is approximately 1 inch thick, easily fits over your shoulder and can even be adjusted for your personal comfort. The elastic ends will keep your mat secured when rolled up.

When cleaning your mat use a diluted soap and water mixture to gently wipe it down and avoid using fragranced soaps and detergents to avoid unwanted smells on your mat.

Don’t try and save money by buying a cheap yoga mattress that is made of PVC, and has a thin carrying strap. Saving a few dollars will cost you more in the long run as you will soon need to replace your cheap yoga mat.
