After receiving these I was about to write a review saying that they were too thin and I probably wouldn't use them. However the weather heated up and I wanted something thinner to catch the dribbles as the towel and fleece backed ones seemed too hot. I was surprised how much of the dribble they do soak up, although I will be going back to my other more absorbent ones once the weather cools. The colours also seem to have run a bit during the first use so be careful what you use underneath. The neck is quite big so we have tied a knot in the fabric to make it smaller - this also looks quite cool! Overall - good for hot weather.
