Initial feel is a bit wierd. I use it for indoor cycling and it is great for that. That activity generates a lot of sweat and this is up to the task. I start with it slightly damp. It gives it a slightly tack feel so it stays put when I place it over the bars / stem. This is very important as sweat is rather corrosive and that is the normal drip zone. With a little cool damp moisture it aids in body cooling without diminishing the ability to absorb sweat.

I bought this for camping and my bug-out bag, based on the great reviews here. This towel does absorb moisture wonderfully and it is easy to wring out. But that's the only good thing about it. In order to work, it has to be damp. It dries hard as a rock - and in fact you cannot open a folded towel if completely dry as it may crack or break. When it is moistened, it does absorb water.

Instead of terry towels and washcloths for showering at campgrounds, we use the Sammy towels. Wet them down, use them for soaping up and washing, then rinse them, squeeze them dry and use them for drying off! Rinse them at the sink with soap and water, put them back in their plastic container, and they are ready for the next day's showers. No more wet, heavy towels to deal with! Once we get home, they go in the washing machine. (Do not put them in the dryer.) Put them back in their plastic containers and leave the lids off, so that they can dry. Once dry, put the lids on, and they are ready for the next camping trip. We love them!
