First use it felt a little like “cardboard” and stiff. Subsequent washes have made it softer with use and sand does not cling to it. It is easy to pack in the little bag supplied and very useful for travelling.
It’s great if you have a place to hang it over. It is sand repellent until it’s wet, then it’s a sand magnet. It’s easy to pack because it folds up small. I have higher hopes for this as a pool towel than a beach towel.
Purchased 2 of these towels after seeing an influencer highly recommend them. As soon as I felt the towel, it felt sort of stiff and weird on my skin but I thought that the pros of being absorbent, lightweight and folding up very small would be worth it, and I’d get used to the different feel of the towel. That wasn’t the case. I took both towels on a camping trip and my husband and I gave it a try. We couldn’t get used to how the towel feels and unfortunately we ended up getting rid of them.
The best part of these beach towels are how much space they save when packing or toting to the beach/pool. They fold up to be maybe 1/8th of what our old super fluffy beach towels fold to. Save so much space when packing. The quick dry feature is the next best part. Sand also doesn't stick to these - quick shake and the towels are clean. They are thin and have a microfiber feel. If you're used to fluffy towels, this is a big difference. But that also means they are pretty lightweight and all the other benefits outweigh the lack of fluffiness in my opinion. Highly recommend! Switching all of our beach towels to these.
