In 2012, I purchased several eagle creek travel towels, roughly this color, from The Container Store. They're getting a bit old, so I thought I'd try a replacement and I assumed this would be the same thing. I use these very thin towels to wrap my long hair in after a shower, and when traveling light, I also use them as general purpose bath towels. It will soak water up, but it can't be used to effectively wipe something dry--even a counter top. So, it's okay for my primary use, but I don't think it's a great towel, and I wouldn't buy it again.
