Odor: I aired out the mat for about a week and the smell was pretty gone. I did notice a difference between laying the mat out to air out and hanging it over something (i.e. a chair) - the latter was much better at getting the scent out. If you're planning to hang the mat, I strongly recommend you air it out in a place that not many people pass by because there's kind of a odor "cloud" that stays for the first couple days. I aired it out with the hanging method about four times (I think in between those times I practiced twice?) and by then the rubber scent was pretty much gone.
Slip?: If you ask me, I think it might be based on the color - a lot of the "acai" color mats seem to have the slip problem. So far, the "ebb" version has been pretty non-slip (but of course, using the areas where there are fresh sweat drops makes it a bit slippy, but this might be unavoidable?)...
Care: ... but I've also been really stringent about the care. I read on Reddit (I think) the account of someone who finally washed their mat with the vinegar-water solution (as per recommended by Manduka) and the mat ended up slippery, and someone commented that the eKO mats tend to become that way if there's too much moisture in them. As a result, I've taken these steps, and so far, its been good:
1) After a sweaty practice, I let the mat sit for a minute or two before rolling it up. If it's been a rain-shower sweaty practice, I wipe it down, then let the mat sit.
2) When I'm cleaning the mat with the vinegar/water solution, I put the solution on a towel, NOT on the mat itself. I take the towel (not drenched, but more damp?) and wipe it down, let it air out for a minute or two, then run my hand over the mat to make sure that it's pretty dry. If it's not I take a paper towel and just give it another wipe. Once it's dry, I roll the mat up. I clean the mat about 1-2 times a week in this way.
3) I haven't put my mat in direct sunlight (except when going to/from the car to studio, etc.). Don't know how much it helps with the slip, but haven't done it. I've also kept it in a pretty cool place at home, and roll it out to dry if I think its necessary.
Hope this helps!
I found the top coating to be slippery, especially once I started sweating -- hands and feet would scoot around the thing. I also noticed that it would buckle in some poses, as if it were slipping on the floor, causing it to bunch up around whatever appendage was grounded at the time. I imagine many people could overlook these characteristics, or write it off saying, "all yoga mats do that," however, I kept thinking about it during practice, which was distracting.
I returned this mat and ended up going with a jade harmony mat and that works much better for me.
Again, this is a high quality mat and I have no doubt that some of my qualms can be chalked up to "user error." I just didn't find it to be all that forgiving given my skill level.
