To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These are great tools and pack small for carrying around. Its a bit of an odd sensation to get used to when using it to dry you off (sort of feel like a chamois leather!). However, the notion that this towel is 'sand free' is nonsense. It puts up sands and holds it too. Probably less than a normal towel, but it still picks it up.
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.
Feel a bit weird at first. Good to cover full beach bed. Dry quicker, but still think I prefer feel of traditional towelling. They are light weight but not quite as much as I expected. ( careful with first washes - colour ran in orange one and you can't use softener as microfibres are affected )
