In short, seems great for camping, comes in a breathable pouch and has a tag you can attach to a tree or bag. Seems to wring fairly dry as well.
One thing to mention, this has a "stiffer" feel compared to a traditional towel, it won't wrap in the ways you're probably used to so be prepared for that, but this is designed for travel and backpacking so you should be expecting to leave the luxury at home anyway.
For wiping yourself off after showering, the towel did not perform as you would expect a typical fluffy towel would. It doesn't absorb water very well off your body and it tends to "move" the water off your skin instead, so don't buy this type of travel towel expecting the luxury of normal bathroom towels.
That being said, however, the towel does the job needed and more, since it takes a lot of water to completely soak it. You can wring wet clothes out by wrapping them up with the towel to allow them to air dry more quickly. The X-Large towel I purchased also doubled as a privacy screen in hostel beds by hooking it up to the bunk bed above and preventing light (and roommates eyes) from getting into your bed. This also allowed it to dry quickly overnight. Highly recommended.
