This feels like a sham-wow that my dad used to dry off the car after washing. It is very absorbent, thin, and dries quickly when hung up.
I personally don't like the feel, it feels like suede and when first starting to dry with the towel you cannot rub it around. Once it has picked up a little moisture then you can slide it around your body a little bit.
While I don't like the way it feels, it still gets 5 stars because it is as described and does dry you and itself very quickly. I don't think it is fair to take off a star for something subjective like texture. My wife does like the way it feels but suede texture doesn't bother her.
