Packing down to next to nothing, it was almost unnoticeable in my pack. We tried the 'medium' 20" x 40" size, which was perfect for our needs. Take a swim, dry off, wring it out, dry off another guy, repeat. It was amazingly absorbent and felt 90% dry after a good twisting. What was a real shocker happened on our way out. All I can say is Wow! This towel sucked all the moisture out of sweaty nasty clothes at the bottom of my day pack, placed there after packing out of the BWCA through four lakes and over four portages at the end of our trip. It performed this well while still rolled up in its own little stuff sack. Maybe all micro towels do this, but I was thoroughly impressed! I have to admit it smelled awful but washed up admirably. I cannot wait to use it transitioning between the swim and the bike on my next triathlon. I’ll let you know how that goes.
