This is a decent size towel, which is what we were after. There are a couple of things to be aware of though: firstly, the colour is much more 'military' than it looks in the photo - I think calling it 'moss green' is a bit misleading, it's actually quite a dark grey-green - alright for a bloke, but my girlfriend wasn't keen! More importantly than that, it takes ages to dry. We used it for a day on the beach along with a light blue towel from 'you-(probably!)-know-who'. The blue one dried in a couple of hours; this towel was still damp the next morning. It's made of a thicker fabric than the blue one, which is probably why, but for me, a travel towel needs to dry quickly, so next time I'd go for a different brand. Having said that, the size and thickness of this one did make for quite a useful blanket on an early morning bus ride!
