To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought the 2Xsmall for myself, 2Xsmall and the large for my girlfriend. We were both disappointed with the towels, since we own microfiber towels with a similar price, but with much better absorbancy. I felt the towel became wet really fast and didn't dry faster then a normal towel.
It's lightweight and compact, but no more absorbent than an ordinary terry cloth towel, if that. I'd planned to keep it around the kitchen to dry my hands between cooking tasks, but it performed only so-so. (And, yes, I washed and dried it beforehand per the instructions.) The product's best feature may be the storage pouch it came in.
I have a few different microtowels and I bought two of these for a trip. I hate it. I wanted to like it but it feels thin and it sheds and I tried to pass it on to my daughter. However, she hates it too. I gave it 2 stars because I like the colors and I like the size but I wish I could get my money back. Unfortunately, I bought two and I can't return it - the return date is gone and we are still on our trip. If I can get help please, I would appreciate it.
I thought this towel would work on the front of my yoga mat, to keep my sweaty hands from slipping. It seems absorbent, but slips on the mat, so I'm just going to use it as a hand towel for the car. Not that I've ever needed one of those.....
