Yogi Life: Gaiam Grippy Yoga Towel

1
00:00:00,319 –> 00:00:02,669
hey everybody its Chantal today I’m

2
00:00:02,669 –> 00:00:05,100
going to be doing a review on the guy am

3
00:00:05,100 –> 00:00:07,319
grippy towel took it out of the

4
00:00:07,319 –> 00:00:08,639
packaging already which is right here

5
00:00:08,639 –> 00:00:10,980
I’ll just read what the packaging says

6
00:00:10,980 –> 00:00:13,559
it says what’s your absorbing towel with

7
00:00:13,559 –> 00:00:17,190
non-slip backing extra absorbent fast

8
00:00:17,190 –> 00:00:19,320
drying towel ideal for hot yoga and

9
00:00:19,320 –> 00:00:21,779
traditional practice alike microfiber is

10
00:00:21,779 –> 00:00:23,939
hypoallergenic absorbent and dries in

11
00:00:23,939 –> 00:00:26,250
half the time of ordinary towels slice

12
00:00:26,250 –> 00:00:28,050
to fit directly on top of your yoga

13
00:00:28,050 –> 00:00:30,900
knack so this is how it comes comes

14
00:00:30,900 –> 00:00:32,759
rolled up in here took it out already

15
00:00:32,759 –> 00:00:34,860
because I’ve always still used it i use

16
00:00:34,860 –> 00:00:37,200
it through my 30 day challenge so I

17
00:00:37,200 –> 00:00:39,300
think I have a pretty good idea of how I

18
00:00:39,300 –> 00:00:41,309
like this I actually like this the best

19
00:00:41,309 –> 00:00:44,010
out of the retail available bats that

20
00:00:44,010 –> 00:00:46,559
I’ve gotten already so this is how it

21
00:00:46,559 –> 00:00:49,829
comes it comes in purple and in green

22
00:00:49,829 –> 00:00:51,059
those are the ones that I saw at

23
00:00:51,059 –> 00:00:54,870
superstore and it retailed for 39 99

24
00:00:54,870 –> 00:00:57,930
which is a little bit pricey considering

25
00:00:57,930 –> 00:01:00,449
you can get it in retail stores but it’s

26
00:01:00,449 –> 00:01:02,699
still cheaper than getting like a

27
00:01:02,699 –> 00:01:04,979
lululemon or a man do good type of towel

28
00:01:04,979 –> 00:01:07,470
those usually retail for fifty involves

29
00:01:07,470 –> 00:01:09,869
I’ve seen some for like 80 so this is

30
00:01:09,869 –> 00:01:12,240
still fairly affordable compared to

31
00:01:12,240 –> 00:01:15,659
those so it’s very big it’s actually

32
00:01:15,659 –> 00:01:19,650
very thick when you fold it up let’s say

33
00:01:19,650 –> 00:01:24,450
to go to yoga class it’s very bulky you

34
00:01:24,450 –> 00:01:28,170
can see it’s very big and bulky which

35
00:01:28,170 –> 00:01:30,299
I’m not very fond of because you know I

36
00:01:30,299 –> 00:01:33,270
like to save space but that’s one con I

37
00:01:33,270 –> 00:01:36,790
found it’s very bulky and then

38
00:01:36,790 –> 00:01:39,660
so when I actually use this in practice

39
00:01:39,660 –> 00:01:43,090
it’s true to packaging it does absorb my

40
00:01:43,090 –> 00:01:45,760
sweat fairly quickly and it does dry

41
00:01:45,760 –> 00:01:48,880
very quickly however when I’m washing it

42
00:01:48,880 –> 00:01:51,220
I think it takes a little bit longer

43
00:01:51,220 –> 00:01:54,670
because you’re supposed to dry it flat

44
00:01:54,670 –> 00:01:57,070
not put it in the dryer obviously

45
00:01:57,070 –> 00:01:59,530
because it might reckon the the plastic

46
00:01:59,530 –> 00:02:02,740
backing so i dont have space in my house

47
00:02:02,740 –> 00:02:04,690
to actually lay it flat kind of like

48
00:02:04,690 –> 00:02:07,690
this so I have to hang it on two hangers

49
00:02:07,690 –> 00:02:10,300
like this and I have to make sure that

50
00:02:10,300 –> 00:02:13,750
the plastic side dries and this side

51
00:02:13,750 –> 00:02:16,630
rise so takes about a day to dry and

52
00:02:16,630 –> 00:02:18,370
fortunately but that’s just because of

53
00:02:18,370 –> 00:02:21,400
my circumstances and also i notice that

54
00:02:21,400 –> 00:02:25,530
it it picks up a lot of link you can see

55
00:02:25,530 –> 00:02:29,070
on the actual towel but it does pick up

56
00:02:29,070 –> 00:02:31,989
quite a few pieces of lint when you wash

57
00:02:31,989 –> 00:02:35,110
it again which is not very idea because

58
00:02:35,110 –> 00:02:36,340
sometimes it sticks to you when you’re

59
00:02:36,340 –> 00:02:39,989
chewing your practice but overall this

60
00:02:39,989 –> 00:02:43,209
in using it with the faster flow type

61
00:02:43,209 –> 00:02:46,540
classes it doesn’t move at all it fits

62
00:02:46,540 –> 00:02:49,239
directly on my mat perfectly actually

63
00:02:49,239 –> 00:02:51,610
and it hasn’t shrunk whereas the one

64
00:02:51,610 –> 00:02:54,640
that i’ve tried already via i think its

65
00:02:54,640 –> 00:02:57,970
guy am thirsty microfiber towel this has

66
00:02:57,970 –> 00:03:00,310
shrunk a little bit and i find that it

67
00:03:00,310 –> 00:03:02,019
kind of curls at the corner you can see

68
00:03:02,019 –> 00:03:04,209
like right there curls in the corner i

69
00:03:04,209 –> 00:03:06,670
have to like stretch it out over my mat

70
00:03:06,670 –> 00:03:09,580
or this since i guess because it’s so

71
00:03:09,580 –> 00:03:11,890
you know big and thick and heavy it just

72
00:03:11,890 –> 00:03:13,200
lays flat

73
00:03:13,200 –> 00:03:16,290
I really like it I also like the texture

74
00:03:16,290 –> 00:03:19,590
on this mat better than the microfiber

75
00:03:19,590 –> 00:03:21,780
as I mentioned before this kind of feels

76
00:03:21,780 –> 00:03:24,810
like a Powell all over my body I could

77
00:03:24,810 –> 00:03:27,239
not a towel oh my god I’m microfiber

78
00:03:27,239 –> 00:03:29,730
blanket where this one has more of that

79
00:03:29,730 –> 00:03:32,730
each towel type of feel on it which I

80
00:03:32,730 –> 00:03:35,700
prefer to the microfiber feeling so I

81
00:03:35,700 –> 00:03:39,709
like that a lot better than that and

82
00:03:39,709 –> 00:03:42,180
overall I think this is a really good

83
00:03:42,180 –> 00:03:44,519
towel I like it the best as i said

84
00:03:44,519 –> 00:03:46,110
before out of the ones that i’ve tried

85
00:03:46,110 –> 00:03:49,590
so far so the only downsides is maybe

86
00:03:49,590 –> 00:03:52,709
the price a little bit more pricey the

87
00:03:52,709 –> 00:03:54,989
microfiber one I got for about 20 bucks

88
00:03:54,989 –> 00:03:57,870
and this is twice as much but it is a

89
00:03:57,870 –> 00:04:01,530
better quality it washes pretty easily

90
00:04:01,530 –> 00:04:03,900
other than picking up the lint it’s

91
00:04:03,900 –> 00:04:06,420
bulky that’s the only big thing that I

92
00:04:06,420 –> 00:04:08,519
have this with this and it takes a while

93
00:04:08,519 –> 00:04:10,380
to dry when you actually wash it

94
00:04:10,380 –> 00:04:12,750
properly so that’s my little review of

95
00:04:12,750 –> 00:04:15,810
this it doesn’t move around not like the

96
00:04:15,810 –> 00:04:18,810
I have the Joe Fresh that as well that

97
00:04:18,810 –> 00:04:21,329
has a plastic backing like this I’ll put

98
00:04:21,329 –> 00:04:24,300
a link somewhere up there but I find

99
00:04:24,300 –> 00:04:25,950
that one will move around a little bit

100
00:04:25,950 –> 00:04:28,169
if I’m moving quickly soon let’s say I’m

101
00:04:28,169 –> 00:04:31,229
rotating my feet on my mat it kind of

102
00:04:31,229 –> 00:04:33,630
takes the towel with it whereas this one

103
00:04:33,630 –> 00:04:36,510
doesn’t move it all when I rotate on or

104
00:04:36,510 –> 00:04:38,700
if I like flip over on my back or my

105
00:04:38,700 –> 00:04:40,740
front or something like that it doesn’t

106
00:04:40,740 –> 00:04:42,990
move at all because it’s so fake oh yeah

107
00:04:42,990 –> 00:04:46,560
so that’s my review I like this one the

108
00:04:46,560 –> 00:04:48,750
best so far I’m going to be trying the

109
00:04:48,750 –> 00:04:52,620
guy am travel Matt travel yoga towel

110
00:04:52,620 –> 00:04:55,410
Matt thing it’s really thin thinner than

111
00:04:55,410 –> 00:04:56,490
this so I don’t know how that’s gonna

112
00:04:56,490 –> 00:04:58,860
work out but i’ll put a review on that
