Reviewed by Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer - October 19, 2014

Likes: Great item - very lightweight. I find it handy for wiping down condensation on single wall tents and cleaning off my feet. Much better for these purposes than a bandana. It has been washed dozens of times and still looks good.

Dislikes: Nothing. I would buy it again

Reviewed by Inside Edge Member - April 27, 2014

Likes: extra light and easy to pack

Dislikes: nothing so far

Reviewed by Inside Edge Member - March 9, 2014

Likes: Pleased so far with the towel, I purchased the XL and it is actually a little bigger than I need.

Dislikes: Material is obviously meant to be lightweight and I have concerns of it being too thin to where it could easily tear on accident. The towel packaging it came with is pretty cheap but not a big deal.

Likes: Excellent for trips, don't require additional space in your backpack

Dislikes: So small, is better choose size L

Reviewed by Dale M. - November 9, 2013

Likes: Amazing size for such a small, super lightweight package. I had always used this type of towel, but kept small sizes to minimize space and weight. Why bother? This huge sheet is awesome, weights nothing and packs to a size that no one would care about.

Dislikes: All good as expected.

Reviewed by Mike B. - October 24, 2013

Likes: Extremely lightweight yet very absorbent. The Large size seemed to be a good size for backpacking yet was still under 2 ounces. Very compact and dries super fast.

Dislikes: I purchased the Blue towel and rinsed and rang it out quit a few times before the dye stopped turning the rinse water blue. Unless you're a Smurf, I would suggested rinsing it out before using.
