Things To Consider Before Buying Sport Towels
Cotton and microfiber are considered best for sport towels since they dry off quickly and have high absorbency. The poly-blend variations of cotton are also sometimes preferred for their ability to reduce shrinkage.
Weight of the fabric for a sport's towels is usually measured in GSM (grams per square meter) or lbs per dozen. Higher the GSM, softer is the towel and higher is its absorbency; and vice-versa. However, high GSM towels are heavier and take longer to dry.
3. Absorbing Quality
Sport towels need to absorb a lot of workout sweat and thus, towels with higher absorbency are preferred. However, being too absorbent might also not be ideal; so it is better to opt for an intermediate absorbency.
Ideally, sport towels need to be washed after every single use and thus should be of higher durability to withstand multiple washing sessions.
5. Drying Time
Since sport towels need to be washed and used frequently, towels with lesser drying time are preferred. If re-used without drying off completely, a towel invites microbial growth and may result in odour.
