LOS ANGELES, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Manduka (, the world's leader in high performance yoga gear, announced today the release of the Manduka Mat Sling--the perfect carryall accessory for any yoga mat. Like most of the innovative products in the Manduka family, the Mat Sling is unlike any other--earth friendly, purpose driven, light, stylish and extremely durable. Designed with the notion that not all yoga mats are created equal, the Mat Sling conveniently adjusts to fit any size mat and every body type--thin, thick, small or extra long. The Mat Sling comfortably holds the legendary 7 lb. Manduka Black Mat PRO with ease, while other yoga mat carriers come up short.

With top of the line construction at the forefront of all Manduka products, the Mat Sling is designed with an ergonomically-engineered shoulder pad to ensure comfort, making travel easy on your mat and your body. The smooth nylon strap easily slides on and off, maintaining durability and a firm grip no matter how far your yoga journey takes you.

"We know the importance of traveling with your yoga mat," said Manduka CEO, Sky Meltzer. "We also know the challenges of traveling with your Manduka yoga mat. With the Mat Sling we took on the design challenge of a simple sling and recreated it to be as convenient, durable, and functional as possible to make the trip to and from the studio a little easier."

While other mat slings leave you with no place to put your essential accessories, the Manduka Mat Sling comes with a clip-on, recycled fabric pouch to store your wallet, keys, towel and other personal items you can't leave home without. The convenient carbineer attachment is ideal for connecting a reusable water bottle--leaving you hands free as you go to and from class. Whether your walk, bike or drive to the studio, the Mat Sling makes the transition from your life to your mat inspired and effortless.

The new Mat Slings are available in Thunder (Grey) with a suggested price of $38
