    i've seen the guys at the gym wipe down with those chamois-type, fast-drying towels. the towels are usually about a foot square and i'd need a larger one to wear from the locker to the shower and back again.
    anyone know if they make them in a bath towel size? i take showers at the gym and hate having a wet towel in the car all day. thanks!

    Uh, why do you "need a larger one to wear from the locker to the shower and back again." icon_question.gif
    It's a locker room, guys are gonna get naked... well, no one under 30 these days. Hate to see what happens if you guys go off to Army boot camp!

    I have never seen them in towel size, only the swimming one's that I am aware of.

    Use your chamois towel to dry off in the shower stall and bring a towel for your waist. It shouldn't be wet at that point.

    I have one that's great. I don't really use it at the gym, mostly for travelling, but you're welcome to the website icon_smile.gif

    Look under the Camp Towels section.

    All camping / mountain climbing stores have these types of towel. I swim regularly and use my towel daily.

    Any camping store will have these in a wide range of sizes - mine definitely wraps around me and could wrap around a much larger man. I bought an XLarge size and it is bigger than a regular shower towel.

    There are also regular towels you can get at most stores that are labeled as "quick dry." I swim daily, and when I spread the towel off in the truck in the morning, it is always dry by the afternoon.

    Here's Vince Shlomi's mug shot after he beat up a chick. Looks like she took a couple of chunks out of him as well.

    all gyms I have gone to in the past years everyone usually walks around comfortably naked. Young and old - doesn't seem to be an issue.
