Soaks up the water and dries quick.

I bought the XXL size which was great - it was big enough to wrap around me and to have a nice big towel to sit on at the beach.

This towel dries extremely quick and takes up very little room.

Awesome little towel. It's not exactly as absorbent as one of those shammy things you dry your car with, but it still seems to soak up plenty. My wife and I both used the X-large one (i.e. 2 people to 1 towel) on our trip to Japan and it worked great. Packs small, dries relatively quickly (again not like a shammy or anything, but MUCH better than a regular towel), and is nice and soft. Just a note here tho, don't expect to be able to wring this thing dry, you still have to let it air out some. The x-large is still smaller than a regular towel but not too far off. My guess is that most people would prefer the x-large for traveling unless they were doin' some extreme packing or something. It's almost as long as a normal towel in the longest direction, but it's about 1/3 shorter in the shorter direction. Also, in humid weather, like Japan's August, it didn't seem to dry even within' a couple hours, so sometimes we'd have to strap it to something and just let it hang out. Still, way better than a normal towel. We ended up likin' it so much while testing it out before our trip that we bought all 3 smaller sizes before leaving as well. The smaller ones really came in handy in the heat as we would wet them down and wrap them around our neck and use them to wipe our face and neck down to help us stay cool. Now we use them whenever we go on road trips here to visit family or vacation and have found we have lots more room in our suitcase and like the little pouch it comes with to pack it in.

UPDATE: These towels are not "thick" like a traditional towel, they are very "thin", just in case that matters to anyone. Not even as thick as a microfiber towel, in fact even a shammy is thicker. So at first you might think it won't hold much water, but it does a good job.

I used this towel when I traveled to Iraq. It was great because sometimes during travels if I showered I didn't not have a long time to allow for my towel to dry and who wants to shove a wet towel in their bag? This towel dries extremely quick and takes up very little room. I still use this in my military training but have also used for personnel use to include camping. I highly recommend.

I like these towels and own several; but I want to clarify a point that may be helpful. These towels are extremely absorbent. That's a big plus. But they don't dry in "no time at all". If you are in a heated or air conditioned room, or a dry climate, they will dry overnight. In humid climates they can get funky if packed. I've found super thin cotton towels more useful in hot, humid climates.

I bought this towel in it's XL size a month ago and have had nothing but good experiences with it. It softens the more you wash it, if left to dry on its own it never gets a mildew smell, and folds up smaller than a tee shirt.

Specific times I've used it include

1) Draping over a car seat. The XL is perfectly sized to cover a driver or passenger car seat in a pinch after an impromptu dip in a lake or if you're all sweaty and gross from the gym.

2) Showering at the gym. Its so small there's no reason to not have it in your gym bag. The antibacterial fabric soaks up sweat and water with no odor and the XL is big enough to go fully around your waist if you're a guy over 5'8 and cover all the important parts if your a girl under 5'3.

3) Day hikes and overnighters. Unless you're an ultralight hiking fanatic, if you have room for an extra teeshirt in your bag then you have room for this. As a guy crashing at a friends place never leads to an awkward "Uhh you got a clean towel" convo and as long as I have a pair of swim trunks in my car I can go swimming whenever I want. Most importantly you can dry yourself off completely hang it to dry and it'll be good to go again in about 3 hours.

All around handy towel... Do yourself a favor and get the XL but wait for it to go on sale. It can get a little pricy.

I ordered this pack towel for my upcoming trip to Ireland - the towel itself is great! Works really well at drying off and dries quickly afterward. My only beef with it is that there is a huge difference between the large size and the extra large size. I ended up buying an extra large for my trip so that I had something to cover up with when using shared bathrooms - but I'm also going to hang on to this one for my camping trips when I need to pack light.

I took this towel on the 8 day Biking Across Kansas event. Its just the right size for toweling off after a shower, it is very absorbent and soft on the skin. The hanging loop is handy for drying. This towel is designed to dry quickly and it does that fairly well, although it was challenge to have it be completely dry by morning in the humid kansas climate. Packs small and has a good storage case. A bit pricey, but should hold up well for years of use.

The pack towel absorbs a lot of water and then dries within hours. It also came with a mesh carrying bag that is useful (about the size of an ipad). I just really like how big the towel was unfolded (the x-large is the size of a normal shower towel) but also how compact it becomes after you fold it (about the size of an ipad). Very different from ordinary shower towels.

P.S. you can find the sizes on rei.com
