Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've been using my L eucalyptus towel for over a year now and love it. It tags along at the lake, camping, backpacking, kayaking...basically anywhere I could possibly use a towel. It works great and dries rather quickly. Bear in mind, I'm in Montana and don't have high humidity problems. I also have super-thick hair down to mid-back and love the super-absorbency of this towel. It's like a squeegee for my hair. Most of the excess water (dripping wet) on the towel comes from my hair. I tend to wash up at night, hang the towel on the line, then use a corner in the AM to wash my face/clean up in the morning. When we head out on the trail, I leave the towel in my pack with the wet portion hanging out to air dry while hiking. Usually less than 30min and that sopping wet corner is dry.
My hair has since outgrown the L towel, so I will be buying an XL one and taking that on the trail.
I also have one that we use on the dogs when we take them to the lake. Does a great job getting them dry before loading them in the car.
As a girl with all this hair, the TekTowel is my towel of choice. When I had short hair, the DryLite was perfectly fine for all my needs. Now, it's a frustrating undertaking.
Even if you aren't an outdoorsy person, but need a good hair-drying towel you can't go wrong with this one.
