Review of the Traveller Mat by B Yoga

When it comes to product reviews, we don’t mess around. All of the items we review are put through the ringer of everyday use. You can trust that our reviews are non-biased and completely honest. Full disclosure: we don’t publish negative reviews. If a product doesn’t live up to our standards, we simply won’t promote it. Everyone has their own opinion – this is ours. Let’s get started.
 
Yoga mats are the peanut butter to the jelly of your yoga practice.
 
Yoga mats are the beautifully simple foundation to your practice – you simply step on, and take flight!
 
If you think back to your first experience with yoga, the only thing outside your body that you needed for this practice was . . . a mat! Yet as your practice evolved, you quickly discovered the importance of finding a yoga mat that fits your practice, your lifestyle, and your body.
 
Introducing B Yoga, a Canadian yoga mat company that’s making waves in the yoga community due to their simple formula for excellent yoga mats: grip, comfort, and lightweight. Sounds pretty good to us! We are reviewing the Traveller Mat by B Yoga.
 
Let’s take a closer look at how the B Yoga Traveller Mat equates to the ideal yoga mat for you.
 

Grip

B Yoga has adapted a unique type of rubber material, specially tested and innovated to create a mat that is highly grippy but also versatile in its traction. When you first step onto the Traveller Mat, the bottoms of your feet feel rooted – the rubber grips your skin while also absorbing your weight – and the result is a practice that feels safe, secure, and enjoyable.

We also tested this for hot yoga, and even when you get sweaty, the rubber still provides you traction without the need for a towel (of course, if you sweat a lot, a towel is always useful).
 
If you’ve ever slipped on your mat during your practice, you’ll know that this is not only startling and dangerous, but also distracting. Comfort comes in trusting that you’ll stay in place for a safe and focused practice. The Traveller Mat is made from 100% rubber, so the traction will last the life of your mat.
 
Translation: slipping won’t cross your mind during your practice (and we think that’s the key ingredient for a satisfying and successful yoga session).
 

Comfort

To us, there are several elements that comprise comfort in a yoga mat. First, how much cushioning the mat provides your body, and particularly your joints. B Yoga’s Traveller Mat is designed to be lightweight and ideal for travel. It is 2mm thick and designed with their signature High Density Cushion. This cushion provides versatility for where you choose to practice, so even on harder surfaces, this travel mat will deliver comfort.
 
Comfort also encompasses upkeep, because if the mat is a pain to maintain, you’ll be less likely to use it! Simply clean your mat by wiping it down with warm water and soap, or a half water, half lemon juice (or apple cider vinegar) blend.

If you’re looking for convenience, good news! You can also pop it into the washing machine on a gentle cycle, and you can even put it in the dryer (or air dry if you prefer).
 
Important to note: Since B Yoga mats are made from 100% rubber, they can fade in color if left in direct sunlight or heat for prolonged periods of time.
 

Lightweight

Revisiting the previous point, your comfort levels also include transporting the mat. Since this is a travel mat, it needs to be lightweight and easy to carry or pack. Weighing in at right about two pounds, this mat is a breeze to carry or place in your yoga bag, and can be folded to fit in your luggage.
 
Travel mats often nail the lightweight aspect, but fail miserably in comfort and quality overall. What we most appreciate about the Traveller Mat is that it’s a lightweight mat – true to its name – but doesn’t compromise on quality.
 

Value

$48 for a yoga mat?! That’s a rare price tag in the world of $100+ yoga mats. Sure, we’re talking about a smaller, lighter weight travel mat, but we’re also talking about a high-quality travel mat that’s built to last, machine washable, and eco-friendly.

The Traveller Mat comes in a wide variety of vibrant colors and is offered in two lengths to suite your personal style and preferences. B Yoga offers several other yoga mat sizes and types (in addition to apparel and accessories), all for less than $100, which you can check out here.
 
At some point, we as yogis have all asked (either ourselves, our yoga teachers, our yogi friends . . . ) what qualities we need in a yoga mat – and where + how to find it! These are important questions to know the answer for in your yoga practice, which is why we here at YogiApproved do the testing and research for you, and present it in a product review. After testing and reviewing the Traveller Mat by B Yoga, we can safely say this mat is 100% YogiApproved.
