Rated 5 out of 5 by Red Great for showers at the gym!
I bought this towel for showering at the gym. I was tired of using a regular towel because it was bulky in my gym bag. Plus I go to the gym and shower at work in the mornings, and a regular towel would start to smell a bit after getting wet and sitting in my gym bag all day. I wanted a towel that was small, portable, wouldn't smell after staying wet for a while, and would not get anything in my gym bag wet. After researching different sports towels online and reading reviews, I decided to go with the Nike Hydro Towel. The towel works great! It rolls up and fits into a small can (included) that I can throw in my gym bag. The towel (17" x 27") is not big enough to wrap around your waist, but it works great for drying off. Once the towel "fills up" with water, you just wring it out and reuse it. I have not tried washing it in the laundry - rinsing it in the sink with soapy water seems to clean it just fine. The (small) downside for me is the rubbery feel of the towel - you cannot wipe down like you would with a regular towel, you have to dab yourself with it. Also the towel will not get you COMPLETELY dry, but it's no worse than a regular towel. The color will bleed a bit when it's new but not enough to be an issue. NOTE: According to the instructions, the towel is always supposed to stay a bit damp because it won't work if completely dry. I just wring it out really well and put it in the can and it stays moist enough. It will start to smell a little after several uses, but just rinse it with soap as needed and you're good to go! Overall I am very satisfied with the towel and would definitely recommend it.

This towel is a blessing when coming out of water aerobics. It absorbs the water from your skin and suit immediately leaving you dry and without water dripping from your body. When done, wring it out a little and put in back in the case. No more having to bring multiple towels to swim classes. Noteworthy - do not let this towel dry out as it becomes hard. Always leave it damp and store it in the container.

This is perfect for anyone getting in & out of water often. The time saved from washing bulky towels is definitely worth the [$].
