From The Manufacturer

It can be hard to concentrate on your yoga practice if all you can think about is how much your knees hurt during your practice. That’s why we created the BetterGrip Yoga Mat. This high density mat provides the perfect amount of cushioning to support your joints without getting that ‘sinking’ feeling. It’s especially ideal for slow-paced Kundalini or Restorative Yoga and for anyone with back pain or knee problems. Clever Yoga products are created by yogis, for yogis. We test every product before we share it with the world to ensure it can handle the wear and tear that comes from vigorous daily practice.

It is also made with an anti-tear technology thus making it very durable.
The foam of the mat is one-quarter inch (six millimeters) thick, but weighs only two pounds for easy portability.

Clever Yoga mat is 6mm thick, which is not too much thin or thick. It also has the right amount of cushion without affecting your balance. It provides a great support for anyone who have a hard time being on knee and elbows. This mat is recommended for anyone who is looking for a thick mat to support your joints. My knee is not sore anymore since I purchased this mat.
Good part about this mat is that it has been made with a non-slip double sided surface. This makes it great because you won’t slip around on it, plus it won’t slide along the ground either. You can use both sides of the mat, plus it works for Yoga, Pilates, and other forms of exercise too.
It is equipped with a 6mm thick ultra-cushion, so it can be easy on your knees and elbows while you practice Pilates, yoga or other mat-associated exercises.
This was one of the most comfortable mats in our review, and it received top marks for this category. The 6.35 mm of foam provide a lot of cushioning, and we appreciated the extra support for our joints and bones in a variety of poses.

What reviewers didn't like

Though its slip resistant under most conditions,perspiration and slick floors may lesson its grip.
Only ideal for hardwood floors
The only setback is the mat may start curling on its corners if poorly stored.
- The Z9
It can be a bit slippery on first times.
Gets a bit slippery when you sweat.
Bulky, thick mat isn't the best for balancing poses.
