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.

A great XL sized pack towel. Seems to be super absorbent but soft, small, and lightweight. Be sure to hand wash this separately in a sink 2-3 times before using it or mixing it in with other towels or clothing items (see photo of really bad brown color bleeding - picture shows the color bleeding after the third hand washing). It has a nice buttoned loop hooking type thing which comes in handy in the shower at the gym so you can hang your towel on something. Other than the color bleeding this is a nice pack towel to use for back packing or camping, traveling, and at the gym.

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.

We received both packtowl's and one of the mesh bags for storage of the towels had a broken zipper. It would be wonderful if you could send us another mesh bag as we expect to use them both for storage of the bags. The zipper will fall off.

I first want to say the idea of the quick dry towel is not that it dries quickly when hung up, but my squeezing and twisting it, it become almost completely dry. It took me a few days to figure that one out.

I got the medium, which was smaller than I expected, but it was adequate to dry me off. Used it every day for a whole summer, and it still works well.

This was my only towel for over two months while I worked in Mongolia and backpacked across China. It still serves me well as a travel towel and a camping towel. I have the "X-Large" size and it's more than enough for my 6'0 frame. Even in the muggy swamp of a Beijing summer it dried quickly enough to be used again in the evening. It weighs very little and packs down to the thickness of a couple of CD cases. It's very easy on the skin as well; softer than some terry cloth towels and certainly softer than a lot of hotel towels!

The only complaint I have is that the snap-loop came off after the first time I undid it. It wasn't a big deal but it was a minor annoyance. Upon returning home I contacted MSR about this and they took care of me with no issues or complaints. It's really a great product, but like anything that's mass-manufactured there are going to be a few that have issues and I judge the product on how the company handles those issues. MSR did a great job.

This towel is a permanent addition to my travel/camping kit and it goes in the carry on with me every time I fly. It's a solid product that's proved itself backed by a company that takes care of its customers.
