Maximum Sweat Absorbtion… And Cooling

As men, we spend boat loads of money on gym memberships, proper footwear and even the latest iPod peripherals but we never think twice about the one mainstay in our workouts… the gym towel. Yeah, yeah I know what you’re thinking… a towel, big whoop. And you’re right, it is just a towel. It’s just a towel that can absorb 5 times its weight in water and stay cool to the touch even after hours of use.

Initially, I had prepared myself for the Hydryx Hard-Core Workout Towel’s ability to absorb sweat. After all, it is essentially a chamois formulated for your body. I’ve even seen Olympic divers using these types of towels. What wasn’t expected though, was the cooling effect the towel had. Each and every time I used the Hydryx Workout Towel I was greeted with a cool and refreshing sensation – an oasis in the midst of an otherwise grueling training routine. In fact, the towel was as cool and refreshing after 90 minutes of use as it was when I first started.

What this means to you: Honestly, I haven’t an idea how Hydrix does it and I really don’t care. What I do care about though is comfort and performance – even during the most ass kicking workouts.

Cost: $18 @ Accufitness
