I love my Manduka Pro mat, but it's a bear--which means it can be awkward to carry it to and from my car while juggling any number of work- or yoga-related items. I don't like to leave my mat in the car during the summer, but I like to always have it handy, so I started looking for an easy carrying solution. While Manduka's mat bags are nice, they are more than I wanted (not to mention more expensive!). The Commuter sling is the perfect solution; it's a simple, functional product that allows me to throw my mat over my shoulder. I love the heather grey and bliss combo, too.
For what it's worth: I've read some reviews that suggest mats unroll when you set down the mat and sling. That has NOT been my experience at all.

Don't let it tilt, otherwise it's great
Have to admit... I didn't read the full description and didn't realize this was JUST the strap (totally my fault.) That being said, I kept the strap to use on another mat I already had. I do like the padded area on the shoulder strap, but I wish the straps around the mat could tighten further. If the mat tilts while on your shoulder, it'll likely slip out of the loop and you drop your mat in the mud...like I did. Just something to be aware of, but like all Manduka products, it's great quality and I'll continue to use it.

I absolutely love this yoga mat carrier
I absolutely love this yoga mat carrier. I have the manduka pro mat and this carrier works perfectly. The pro mat is heavy, but this carrier is well made and can handle the weight of the mat. In my experience, It doesn't slide off of the mat when it is placed down. This carrier is super easy to put on and to take off. I highly recommend this carrier, especially if you own a manduka pro mat. Now that I own this yoga mat carrier, It is so much easier to carry my heavy yoga mat to and from the studio.

Be careful how the strap is put on the mat
It is a nice strap, great quality! The metal buckles of the strap may damage the edges of the mat depending on how the strap is tied around the mat. Avoid having the buckles by the mat edges. It damaged the edges of my brand new Manduka mat.

Sturdy strap design in a nice neutral gray. Love it.
Sturdy strap design in a nice, neutral light gray. Love it for my Maduka Pro Mat, which is quite heavy. I like this better than some of the other mat slings from Manduka because it's a bit wider of a strap and doesn't cut into the shoulder at all.

The strap is always falling off...
This strap relies on tension in order to hold you mat in place. If you pick you mat up, by the mat itself (say, you're getting out of your car) the straps tend to fall off. Any time you hold you mat not by the straps, the straps will adjust on you and sometimes fall off. When they do fall off, the loop that was created to go around your mat has now collapsed and depending on what's in your hands, it's hard to open back up again to go around your mat.
I would not recommend this product.

Good but comes loose
Great adjustable carrying strap, over all. I do like the fabric and the natural looking fabric colors they picked for the strap. It also serves as a dual purpose for a strap during yoga, which is convenient. The frustrating thing with this sling is that you have to be careful that the mat and the strap are transported in a way that the shoulder part of the strap stays as taut as possible otherwise it comes lose and can defeat the purpose.

I love that this does not use Velcro or buttons or anything like that, as I feel totally comfortable bringing this into the yoga room and putting it onto my mat without disturbing anyone around me in their meditation. Exactly what I was looking for considering I always walk to class!

High Quality Yoga Mat Sling
Nice, sturdy, high-quality yoga mat sling with padded shoulder area and sturdy metal buckles. This is the second one I've purchased and am very pleased. I had a much lower quality velcro sling by another brand which was only slightly cheaper but not nearly as nice. (The velcro also wore out, so I had to throw it out.) I think this is very nice for the money. I would definitely recommend this.

Very sturdy and makes carrying my Manduka Pro mat a breeze
Very sturdy and makes carrying my Manduka Pro mat a breeze. I had a cheap cloth carrier that ripped from carrying the Pro mat but this one is top notch and easy to use.
