My family and I went to the CA State Fair, we purchased enough of these towels for everyone (8 total). It was 103 degrees!!! These were wonderful. We wet them throughout the day and draped them around our necks. They are very lightweight but retain the water well, we wet them about once an hour. These were a lifesaver. They even prevented our necks from getting sunburned.
They were selling similar towels at the fair, for $12 each! These are a great bargain. I highly recommend them.
