I was recommended this after I was once again complaining to a friend about how long it takes my hair to dry what with it being very fine and thick. Once I received it I tried it straight away and had fantastic results. For such a thin towel I was amazed at how much water it soaked up from my hair and at how quickly it did so. I think this would be an excellent travel towel due to the tiny amount of space it takes up, its light weight and the speed at which it dries after use.
My only word of warning here is to make sure you're getting an appropriately sized towel for your hair length/thickness. I think I may have chosen one slightly too small as it sometimes falls off my head once I've wrapped my hair up!
