The Microfiber towel is extremely lightweight, but yet very absorbent and dries rapidly. Great for swimmers and their parents. Eliminates the need to carry around a wet heavy terry towel! Use the microfiber towel for a quick dry off and then into a parka or warm up. The microfiber towel dries quickly, ready for the next use. And the towel works equally well dry or damp. Not limited to just swimmers: great for triathlon, water sports, boating or surfing.
