Soak it up!
My son took two of these towels with him on a sailing trip to the Bahamas. He really liked them. He says they took a little longer than he thought they would to dry, but they stayed soft and packed well in his one small duffel that he was allowed to take onboard. He is 5'4" and says the large towel was the right size for him. I plan on getting more of these towels for my husband who is going to Philmont soon.
