Rated5out of5byDagmarfromTiny & UsefulI bicycle commute to work every day. We don't have showers at work, so I use this to do a quick cleaning. It has the dimensions of a washcloth, but is much thinner and lighter. If I hang it up, it is dry by the time I pack up at the end of the work day. The cloth is attached to its stuff sack, and very easy to re-stuff. When I wash it, I pull the cloth out and secure the velcro together so it doesn't catch on other items in the wash. I have used it and washed it a dozen times with no signs of wear yet. Worth the money.

Rated5out of5bykmgreenhousefromAwesome for those runsI wanted a towel to help wipe the sweat during my runs. I found the NANO Packtowl wonderful. It is lightweight and absorbent. I loved it so much that I bought 3 more for my running friends.

Rated5out of5byAmp-RatfromKA-POWBought three of these in two colors. Two for us Bipeds, one for the dog. The dog likes water, we like a dry dog. These towels/wipes absorb quite a bit of water. It takes a wring out or two to dry ourselves off, long hair included. Several more to get the dog drier.
They are small, they absorb quite a bit of water, they wring out easily, they dry out fast, they (so far) have not become stinky. They are very light and pack very small.

Rated5out of5byOutdoorDude29fromWorked great for meI recently bought this for backpacking. However I recently went to Guatemala and needed to pack light. We were going to be staying in a little village that only had cold outdoor showers in very humid conditions. I used this little towel to dry my body after a shower. I had to ring it out several times but it worked perfect because it was so small it dried very fast in the humid conditions and when i needed to put it back in my bag it didn't soak or dampen my gear. While other guys were hanging their huge towels to dry i just threw my in the tent equipment pocket. works great!

Rated4out of5bymunichmanfromWorks as describedI bought one of these mid-summer as a sweat rag. Worked really well. After use I leave it half hanging out of my pocket and it would dry quick enough.
Was hiking last weekend and lost in in some brush. Ordered a replacement. I like them, just find them very expensive.
Performance is 5 star, price knocks it down to 4.

Rated2out of5byJimbo72fromFairly WorthlessI took a long distance walking trip over the summer from Gardnerville, NV to Seattle, WA. I thought this thing would be perfect, seeing as how light weight it is. I used it once after a shower and it didn't dry me off at all. It mostly just dispersed the water on my body more evenly, and it was soaked completely through after drying off just my arms. I couldn't dry off the rest of my body. It's too thin, and rough on the skin. This would be better suited for wiping sweat off or wearing as a headband, especially after soaking it in water.
