It has never developed a smell or anything and does not appear to be fraying anywhere. I love this towel and my only real tiny gripe with it is that because of the weave it isn't as easy as a normal cotton loop towel to push along your wet skin. I prefer this one and to work with that issue because I'd rather have a smaller folded towel than the other available sea to summit weaves would be.
I use this in a medium LL Bean shower caddy and it folds right up into nothing. I can take it with me anywhere.
Normal bath towels scrub and rub and buff you completely dry. They don't stick to you. You have to press them on your body. (Think: "He-heee that tickles! OK, let's put on some clothes!")
This is not the DryLite experience. At its best, in drier air, the DryLite feels like buffing yourself with super-lightweight suede leather. At its worst, in a really humid steamy shower room, it feels like a clingy micro-sued cloth that gets damp and grabs and skids over your wet skin until you peel it off. In both cases it feels like your skin air dries a moment after the towel is removed. This is highly effective but sort of unsettling until you mentally adjust to the wet-suede-rubbing feeling. (Think: "Wait was I just licked by a moist calf tongue or...? Oh hey, I'm dry!")
While I would never admit to my girlfriend that I actually like that sensation, and I'm not sure that I do, I can completely justify paying good money for an approximately 2-foot by 4-foot towel that I can dunk completely under water, wring out well, hang dry and pack in 45 minutes. I'm 6' 210 average body type, and I can wrap it around my waist and change my clothes underneath. It rolls up and packs in my small toiletry kit with razor, comb, deodorant, camp soap, band aid box, sunscreen, etc. So far, I've used it about a week on the road, and I'm going to take it wherever I go camping again or swimming even.
Five-star travel/packable effectiveness. Three-star towel feel. Useful and effective, but they still leave you wondering if you like using them or not.
That I take two showers a day (germaphobe at heart).
That I've been using it for a year, and it's still working strong!
I have not gone backpacking with it, but I tried not washing it. And I started noticing a smell about a month after 60 or so showers. Make sure you wash alone, or with like colors, it does bleed a little. Also don't wipe your nose on it. Try it, and you'll know what I mean.
I got the largest size. Not for practical use, but modesty, and it accomplishes that (I'm 5'6", 178lb man).
This towel drys FAST.
I had fun one day to see how much water this towel retains, and can "re-retain" after completely soaking it, then ringing it out. First soaking, 8oz. I rung it out, and was able to soak another 8oz! Third soak, only 6oz..... but still, this is a thirsty towel!
Very compact, for the size it is.
