This towel is perfect for missionary bags with limited-space. This is a full-sized bath towel (50"x30") that folds down smaller than a paper back book (6"x 5"x 1"). It includes a unique snap-strap and is super absorbent and fast drying. This would make the perfect gift for any missionary preparing to serve.
I bought this towel for my mission and loved the amount of space it saved! Though, when you are only able to wash it once a week it doesn't take long for it to begin retaining an odor that no amount of washing or detergent can get out. It also didn't absorb enough water for me, so I was always trying to dry my hair with a wet towel. I wish I had just brought a normal towel, I began to really hate using it.
My nephews went out and my sister in law swore by these. They are wonderful for size, they stow very small and tightly. My wife picked one up and this morning I found myself trapped without a towel so I decided to give it a go...
I now know what it feels like to be a 66 Mustang and be dried with a shammie. Yup, it don't work like a towel it acts like what it is: a shammie. You don't rub or towel off. Use it like you would a shammie--place it on, lift it off--and it works.
Just a little unsettling. but effective. I can see it's value as a traveling tool but for everyday, home use? Not so thrilled. I would put it in my backpack without question but never use it at home, by choice.
Quality seems nice, makes sense for missionaries and anyone who's deployed.
I LOVE to travel. I bought this towel just to test it and it works so well I've been using it instead of a regular towel for the last month. I knew it was going to be small because I had read the previous reviews but I was shocked at how small it was. Once folded it is smaller than a small Book of Mormon. It wraps around me well and has a little tab so it can hang easily from a hook to dry.
This would towel would be perfect for a missionary and it's perfect for anyone that wants to travel light. I'll be taking mine on my trip to Europe this summer!
I absolutely love this product. Like the other review I was very skeptical of how this towel would be, but I LOVE IT! I recommend it for everyone! It is quite impressive with how much moisture it absorbs!!! I especially love the compact size!
When I first felt this towel I was skeptical that it would really dry that well. I was amazed at how easily it dried me and how quickly it dried itself after I used it. Maybe the best part about it is the compact size, smaller that a typical church book so it will fit in a small pack and won't take up half a suit case like a typical bath towel. A great gift for anyone, especially a missionary!
