Manduka eQua – a towel for life – is the 'next generation' in multi-purpose towels. Extremely lightweight, yet plush, durable, super-absorbent and quick drying, the eQua microfiber towel outperforms ordinary cotton or polyester towels - on the mat, at the gym, on a mountain, or on the road.
Now thicker and plusher for better absorbency and slip-resistance, the new & improved eQua towel is the perfect companion to all Manduka high performance yoga mats. The eQua Mat Towel spreads over any yoga mat to add traction to sweaty palms and feet. The versatile eQua doubles as a germ-free gym towel to absorb perspiration, as a meditation shawl so you can stay warm during cool sitting sessions, or as a highly absorbent travel or hiking towel which takes up a minimum amount of packing space. Slip-resistant, when moist, this super-soft microfiber towel provides extra grip for sweaty hands and feet.

I purchased 3 eQua towels in standard size, color guava. I bought them on sale and with a 10% additional discount, but $35 per towel was still severely overpriced. That's my first "con".
The second "con" is that there is definitely slip to teh eQua when dry. Manduka is up front with this, but I wonder if they could have come up with a design that doesn't slip regardless if dry or wet. After all, we start yoga class dry and (sometimes) end up wet). To bring a water bottle and spray the towel down at the beginning of class is too high maintenance when yoga is already riddled with "props".
These cons aside, this is an excellent towel. Why? the grip is excellent when wet and gives me great hold for various asanas. It covers my BlackMat Pro with just a bit of extra cloth, though I read they shrink in the dryer (tip: air dry!). The quality and colors are solid. It's Made In China, which I generally avoid, but oh well.
I do power vinyasa yoga or Bikram daily, so I decided to invest in quality gear.
