I am not finding this something I would want to dry off with it is not pleasant or absorbent for that matter. I do like the size and color and will sit on it at beach or wherever and like the fact that it's lightweight and takes up little space.More > < Less

I haven't really used it yet, but I did wash it and it came thru the washer/drier just fine.


very stiff not chamois

9/6/2016 by Amy

bought this for my husband and was surprised that it was almost cardboard stiff out of the package but thought it would soften with repeated washings (like chamois). After two months of weekly washings it's stiff as ever. My husband uses it dutifully because it was a gift from me but says it feels like drying himself with a rubber sheet. He says it does dry out quickly and it is lightweight, but overall i am less than pleased. This was an expensive item for what it is.More > < Less

About BareSkin

Fit for Active Duty

A traditional plush towel may look luxurious, but one trip to the beach or gym with a BareSkin and you’ll be rethinking your definition of a great towel.

The creator is Marni Montreal, who wanted a lightweight towel that would dry quickly and would shed sand rather than trapping it. Terrycloth was out. Traditional chamois was compact and didn't hold sand, but it dried stiff and sometimes smelly. After experimenting with a number of microfiber and sponge towels, she came up with BareSkin. Like chamois, this synthetic can hold up to three times its own weight in moisture, and it continues to work even when damp. BareSkin towels stay soft—and get softer with each washing—and are naturally anti-microbial. They also pack up tiny and dry 2-3 times more quickly than other towels, which cuts down on dryer use.

BareSkins are the perfect towels for people on the go. At the beach or on the boat, you won’t be weighted down by soggy, sandy conventional beach towels. They’re so effective you can even have family members share one BareSkin towel to save space in your bag. Use a BareSkin at the gym, and even if you forget it in your bag, it'll be dry and odor-free for the next time.

It’s the future of towel technology—soft, super-absorbent, fast-drying, anti-microbial, and space-age compact.
