Whether used on remote wild-country hikes or after laps and diving at the pool, the Speedo Sports Towel solves the need for compact, durable and clean methods to wipe a brow when hot or avert chills from avid swimmer/diver workouts. This towel ought to be universally used by anyone engaged in active living.
Even backpacking where lightweight tools make a difference in the weariness of each stride, this lighter-than terrycloth towel is ideal.

A nice towel to use.

I really enjoy using it for drying my hair. Make sure after every use, you put it under cold water and rinse to the point where your sport towel is slightly damp.

    Comments about Speedo Sports Towel:

    This a a great soft towel --very absorbent and durable. Perfect for removing excess water after swimming. In the summer, this is the only towel I take to the gym but in the winter I need an extra cotton towel to dry off completely after showering. If you take good care of it, it will last for a long time --except that the color fades away pretty fast.

            I use this towel during my swim meets and its perfect. I can dry off quickly without wasting a good cotton towel that takes forever to dry. Everyone on my swim team loves it too. It always ends up in someone else's hands by the end of the meet haha.

                I don't think I really believed that this small cloth would be practical, but it does work. The feel of it on the skin is a bit strange, I guess, but for getting dry quickly it sure does the job.

                    Best towel to use in between heats during a race. Gets you dry instantly and helps you to stay warm when you're not in the pool. It's also a great towel for practices and doesn't take up a lot of space.

                      i use this for swimming and showering it is just great at absorbing and people you have to wring it out and keep it damp if you do that it does not jet as stiff as cardboard if people would read the instructions it would work better for them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                    Bought this to throw in my swim bag for the summer. Love the sports towels - they are great, last a long time and get the job done.

                                      I really enjoy using it for drying my hair. Make sure after every use, you put it under cold water and rinse to the point where your sport towel is slightly damp.

                                      If you don't read the dimensions before you purchase this towel you will laugh when you open the package. This is a very small towel. Yes, it is absorbent. I am a little disappointed about the fact when this towel dries it gets stiff. I was not expecting that. Spend a little extra on a better pair of goggles and take a traditional cotton towel to dry off with rather than purchase this towel.....

                                          Whether used on remote wild-country hikes or after laps and diving at the pool, the Speedo Sports Towel solves the need for compact, durable and clean methods to wipe a brow when hot or avert chills from avid swimmer/diver workouts. This towel ought to be universally used by anyone engaged in active living.
                                          Even backpacking where lightweight tools make a difference in the weariness of each stride, this lighter-than terrycloth towel is ideal.

                                              You use it like a regular towel.
                                              It was worth it, saves time, saves laundry from washing towels, absorbes water very well and easy to carry places.
                                              I don't regret buying it.

                                                  We recommend rinsing the towel after each use; you may wash in a washing machine with warm water on gentle cycle and air dry, as needed.
