It's a good towel
July 10, 2015
I bought this towel directly from Griot's about 2.5 years ago. (This was before I heard of AG.) It's big, but not overwhelmingly big. I do like the pockets for your hands. Because it covers a wide area, it dries very quickly. It absorbs quite a bit of water and I can dry the entire car after doing a rinseless wash without a problem. After doing a 2BW, I typically have to grab another towel. Because of its size, I do have some problems when I am drying the lower half of the door panels, and this is basically having to really pay attention to whether the towel is hitting the ground or the tires. I suppose you can't have it both ways -- either you're going to use a big towel and have these issues or you're going to use small towels and go through a few of them. I'd definitely buy this towel again.
Pros:Covers a large area.
Pockets for hands make dragging the towel an easy task
Holds a lot of water
Cons:Large size makes is a little difficult along the lower panels
Has stitched edges and I wonder if they ever scratch the paint -- I don't think so, really.
On the pricey side of towels.
