Great product! It is very compact for how big it is, and it definitely dries super fast. When I was laying on the beach in 26 degrees C weather this towel was drying faster than my swim shorts. And after washing it I hung it up to dry inside and within 1 hour it was 100% dry. It's great to pack on trips where you have limited room. I just got back from a 19 day Europe trip and this was the best available option for me.
One thing I recommend people be careful with is when washing this towel. This type of fabric bleeds a lot of color especially the first few washes, so unless what you are washing this with is the identical color then it should be washed alone with a double rinse cycle, and a rinse cycle afterwards when the washing machine is empty on the first wash. And definitely no whites afterward!
But for those interested in this product I highly recommend it!
Quick to dry you, quick to dry off, small and compact and not "weirdly thin"
I had a few reservations about these: 1) grey towel? weird... The grey is actually not as odd as i expected 2) wont it be so thin you can see every bulge and cranny? Nope! it hangs a little heavy, (though its lighter than expected, go figure) which means it hangs straight and true. 3) It'll just push the water around Nope, this sucker must have thirst pockets??!! Absorbent is not the word. 4) No doubt end up all damp and ruined. Nope, dries out quick as it absorbs, its practically magic,
This towl seems to smell fresh each time i use it and feels as fluffy as it was when i got it, (oddly yes, its kinda furry, smooth and not scratchy at all, nicer than an old towel)
Its also tiny! this thing will fit in a pocket (all sizes, i have the largest)
These towels were not what I expected at all. I've bought microfiber towels in the past and they look similar to regular towels, but with smaller loops. These have no loops at all, at first I thought I'd been sent blankets in error. However, after using them I am totally amazed and seriously considering replacing all my terry towelling towels with them, even though I only bought them to take on holiday. I have never managed to get totally dry so quickly. I would definitely recommend these to anyone.
Brought these for holiday to reduce the space used in our suitcases as they are very lightweight and fold down in to practically nothing, although are nice and large when unfolded. Worked well for the purpose of our purchase - totally covered our sunbeds round the pool or beach, nice and light weight so the towels in their bags fitted easily into a small gym bag for taking to pool/beach, and when washed out dried quickly. These will now be a must for our holidays. Now the downside...... fully in love these towels, I have taken to the gym and although again light and compact, after showering I feel like I am rubbing myself down with a shammy leather, I don't actually get properly dried. So 5 stars for holiday use, 1 star for gym use!
I bought this towel (the smallest version) to use as a towel in the gym, primarily to save space in my gym bag. The pouch that comes with it is really handy and when the towel is folded inside, it takes up a crazy small amount of space in my gym bag.....it's amazing....my socks take up more space than this!!! The little hoop on the corner of the towel is a real added bonus to have too, as I use the towel primarily in my spinning classes and this hooks securely onto the handlebar of the spin bike, so it can't fall off. Love this product and it feels nice and soft too!
I travel and camp quite a lot, this is ideal for keeping down weight and saves a lot of bag space. You'll be amazed by how much water this towel can soak up.
I've now bought two of these, the first one I bought was beach towel sized (180cm x100cm), still far smaller when packed down than a normal towel, for camping it's not ideal though as it's probably twice the size of what I actually needed. The second one was a medium 60cm x 120cm, this is perfect for me for when I go camping/travelling (30 y/o male, 5 foot 11, slim/medium build).
Although small (I did not check the measurements), it will be a handy travel towel and I plan to get another. They have not been used but after a wash they are ready to go and dried very quickly so I can see them being rather useful when going away and there being no towels available.
It will be a good face or hair towel but could work in a pinch if there are no other towels. I will be getting a bigger one though, just in case.
I have bought several of these towel, two of the largest size(huge). I bought them for swimming with the kids in hope that they would wash and dry quickly( we don't have a tumble dryer) in time to swim the next day( we swim a lot) and they do. Bought one for my bath towel in the home but my husband refused to have one; he says they are too thin and don't feel luxurious. In my opinion they are just different they have a slightly suede esqe feel but their good points outweigh this. I really like the slight grippy quality as when you wrap it around yourself for modesty at the gym ,it stays put . Anti bacterial properties make for much less smelly towels.The colour runs a lot in the wash so wash desperately.
