It doesn't take up much room in a bag and it is so absorbent!
Kristi Clark
It feels soft against your skin, although, I still prefer a cotton towel at home.
Alphaexn
This towel is very compact and dries very fast, but it soaks up a lot of water.

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 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 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 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.

Color Name: BlueSize Name: Large Verified Purchase
I bought this for a long trek where I was trying to micromanage ever ounce of gear I carried. When I received it I really liked the fact that it came with a packing bag. Another great feature is that on one corner of the towel it has a piece of webbing that has a snap so that it makes a loop. This is great for hanging the towel to dry. I've read some reviews that say it doesn't dry very quickly. Personally, mine dried during the day and I used it each evening to dry off after I rinsed off in the river. The construction seemed durable enough to last quite a while. One thing I must point out is that you should pay attention to the size description. I purchased the large and it is not a large towel by suburban standards. It is a large hiking towel, but it will not cover up your whole body or let you wrap it all the way around your waist easily. It will dry you off, including your hair, but you will need to have a change of clothes handy very soon thereafter.

I purchased this towel in XL for an upcoming 2 week camping trip with my college's geology department. I didn't know what the shower situation would be, so being female I purchased an XL with the hopes that I could be completely covered. I'm 5' 8" and it cuts it pretty close. The XL wraps around me with no problem, but it just barely covers my butt widthwise. Anyone shorter than me though should have no problem being covered up with the XL.

Sizing aside, this is a great little towel! It packs down super small and was easy to just toss into my bag. It also is extremely absorbent - I didn't need a separate towel to dry my hair or anything. The material is a little weird at first because it doesn't slide over your skin, but very soft. It seems to be durable, it dried in a couple of hours (as opposed to needing like 8-12 for a regular towel), and didn't give off any odors.

For people who are having trouble getting it back in to the little pouch, fold it in half, then fold that down with the longer side horizontal by thirds, and then roll that strip in fours and it makes a little rectangle again.
