The Small Towel
I bought this towel because all of my tops are racerback & I HATE sticking to the back of the recumbent bike at the gym. I now drape it over the back of all of the equipment & I'm so much more comfortable not sliding around and/or sticking to everything! It's the perfect size & I'm going to get 1 maybe 2 more. I'm pretty sweaty & I didn't have any issues with absorbing sweat, I certainly don't leave wet spots on the backs of the equipment anymore (I always clean up!). Two people asked me where I got it at the gym today & said they were going to get one. I don't understand the make-up complaints. Who wears all that makeup while working out? I have wipes in my (LL!)bag & take it off before I get started! And besides, that would smear or come off on any towel. I don't understand the hem complaints either - there isn't one, so there's nothing rubbing or irritating me while I'm up against it. A terry towel wouldn't be comfortable at all but then again, I'm not mopping myself off, I'm just using it as a clean, comfortable, surface. I also chatted with a guest educator & was told it's safe to wash with all my LL clothes & do not wash with regular towels.

Love the towel, not crazy about the hem
This towel does the job but I'm not crazy about the hem. Maybe there's a reason for it but I don't find it aesthetically pleasing.
I use this towel for yoga, and I also use it on runs. It's lightweight and small enough to either hang on the treadmill or stuff in the back of your crops during an outdoor run.
More colors, please! :)

An unhemmed chamois
This towel like fabric is not anything to write home about. I sweat ALOT. I pretty much have a towel for every activity I do. I give it two stars because I can coordinate my towel with my lululemon outfit, but it's basically a piece of thin chamois like material with raw edges. It absorbs well but does not dry quickly. Also, if you have makeup on, your sweat will look like a dark spot of liquid instead of like a bright orange streak ;) even if you just blot (you can't really wipe with this towel anyway). Overall I wouldn't recommend it or buy another but I do use it. Just prefer the terry type towels more for cardio and weight training.

What a great indoor cycling towel. I'm a Spinning instructor and love this for a couple reasons:
It's not bulky and allows proper handlebar usage.
The texture helps it "grip" so I don't end up with a towel on the floor.
I'm replacing all of my regular towels with these.
More colours please!

Best workout towel!
I got this small towel in pink for Christmas and absolutely love it! I have used it for spin class, the elliptical, and weight lifting. It is so soft, unlike those scratchy towels my gym sells, and absorbs sweat so fast! After I workout it does not even look like there's sweat on my towel. It also washes great so it still is in great condition! I know for sure I will always use this towel for my workouts from now on :)

Just ok - eQua better
I use this small towel to wipe my face and/or body when I can't handle the beads of sweat dripping everywhere. This towel works fine for warm or unheated classes. For hot classes it is not so great. It's super soft and cozy; however, it is not as absorbent and quick-drying as the eQua hand towels. If I am just taking a 60 minute hot class I can usually get by, but for longer classes this towel is not enough. I have the mint color and is it very pretty - make-up will show but washes right out.

I think this is a great towel for my workouts. Looks great wash after wash. I would really like to see this product come out with other color options. =)

Perfect for long sweaty cardio!
Please make more colours of the smaller towel. I use them every time I'm at the gym!

Another great towel for the gym
I use this towel while on the treadmill...I got 3...and one of the small eQua towels. I like that this one has the lululemon embossed in, as opposed to the sewn on patch with the eQua towel...nothing to scratch against my face...but it does remind me of an old school shammy used to clean the chalk board. Works well however, and won't slide off the treadmill bar.
