You know what? I love microfiber towels, I use that type of material when I dry my car off after a wash, and it absorbs plenty. I have different microfiber cloths throughout my home. You can imagine my delight to discover a towel that I could use for myself during a workout. It's so convenient having a clip too. I purchased the dark blue and gray one, and alternate between the two when I toss one in the laundry. I might have to pick up a few more since it's less bulkier than carrying a regular towel.
