These quick-drying towels have the best reviews on Amazon

Fast-drying towels might not seem like an essential, but they actually have many benefits. Most often made from microfiber, quick-drying towels are perfect for travel. They take up way less space than your average terry cloth towel and are ideal for the beach. Beyond drying quickly, they don't hold on to sand like traditional towels. One Amazon reviewer explains. "Microfiber does not hold the sand..we picked up our towel, gave it one quick shake and we were ready to go without taking half of the beach with us."

Many quick-dry towels are anti-bacterial and are compact enough to throw in your gym bag. Whether you are always on-the-go, live at the gym or are shopping for new towels for your beach house, you will love how fast these towels dry!

Amazon reviewer Kern says, "This is not a towel. This is a magical cloth that absorbs every last drop of water on your skin... the way this has performed I will be buying 3 more because the first has become the towel I use daily."

Amazon reviewer Marianne says, "I love it so much I carry it with me EVERYWHERE. Even if I think I might not need it (always seem to need it somehow). I'd give it 6 stars if I could"

Amazon reviewer Frantz says, "..from sandy beaches to the tops of mountains. In all of this time towel has never failed to uphold a simple promise to me; unimaginable dryness"

Amazon reviewer Robbin says,"I'm so pleased with their performance that I keep grabbing them instead of my fluffy bath towel, which leaves my skin super damp compared to these towels. I am so happy that they came in a set too so I can switch them out daily."

Amazon reviewer Kate says, "These towels are worth every penny! I couldn't believe how small they pack down to, and they feel great on your skin... They save loads of space and dry incredibly quickly."

Amazon reviewer Moses says, "This towel set is awesome. I use it daily for my shower after the gym. It dries me off quickly, and this thing holds a lot of water...I am tempted to replace all my bath towels in my house with these"

Amazon reviewer Kue says, "Whether we laid them on the sand or on our beach lounge chairs they were amazing...microfiber does not hold the sand even when we laid on our towels with our wet swimsuits, we picked up our towel, gave it one quick shake and we were ready to go without taking half of the beach with us."

Amazon reviewer Mike says, "So far, these have exceeded my expectations on quality and usefulness. I wish I had bought an extra set..."

Amazon reviewer Stacee says, "It dries quick and is extremely soft. I would definitely buy this again as a gift for someone who has trouble with thick or heavy towels (elderly or people with an injury). It wicks the water off your body quick without hesitation."

Amazon reviewerVal says, "I am going to replace all my bath towels. Space saver and works even better than regular towels."

Amazon reviewer Rachel says, "These towels are so absorbent. I love them for everything from gym trips to spills in the kitchen. Easy to wash and stay soft through many uses. I even ordered a second batch after my first one came!"

Amazon reviewer Sarah says, "These are amazing! I use these to wipe off sweat when I work out. They do the trick and are super absorbent."
