This towel is just as wonderful as the other towel I have from Bali Market. We did have a ton of fuzz come off it after washing, but it seems to be better after the second washing.
I purchased them for my adult son. He says they leave him more wet than a regular terry towel, but they are very pretty and he loves the size.
I personally prefer the classic towels for post-shower usage, but these tactical towels have instantly become my go-to travel, evening concert in the park, and movie theater blanket. They roll/fold up so compactly yet deliver the perfect amount of breeze/A.C. protection. They also work beautifully as a yoga blanket in a pinch (particularly when traveling)! It has also become my favorite "gifting" towel as it is just so versatile and can ease folks into the "Turkish Towel Life" if they at first think that such thin towel is a bit odd.
I have another towel from Bali market and this “tactical towel” is slightly thicker. I use it in my gym bag for showers at the gym. It dries quickly. It’s large (same size as other one). I like the pattern. My only complaint is the name of the product, don’t let it fool you—it’s a completely unisex product.
Love these towels. Have some of them for our family, and have gifted several to different people in my life. Customer service is amazing and the products are wonderful!
