I purchased this four months ago. I use it by itself for daily meditation, up to an hour, but also for day-long retreats. I sit Burmese-style, so I appreciate the width. I think it's very comfortable, and I will definitely take it with me on my next 10-day retreat!

I ordered the pad to do the sitting meditation in Falun Gong, which means sitting in lotus position for one hour. I found that my legs came under huge pressure because the butt was sinking down a little too much. It's the same issue of doing the meditation on a bed, but not that extreme. I've remedied the problem by placing a small rug half-way under the pad to raise me up slightly and make it feel more even. I suppose I wouldn't need it if the pad were less thick. Also, the pad is much too wide and long for what I use it for. But that doesn't matter.

This mat is great. I took it on a meditation retreat with me and it was extremely comfortable. Also customer service is great. There was a mistake made with the color of my mat and it was resolved really quickly.

Coming from a traditional kapok zabuton this foam design was a treat. The firmer foam design prevents the zabuton from sagging in the center and shortening the usable height of your zafu. Also, I noticed the foam zabuton is more comfortable in warmer weather. My legs don't sink into the cushion but rather rest on top. Highly recommended. Performed flawlessly during 5+ hours of sitting per day in a hardwood zendo.
