Here is my review of the Nomadix towel and beach blanket. I originally got these because they were small and could fit in my dry bag when I went paddle boarding. I discovered they had way more uses. I could use it as a yoga mat. On the beach these do not pick up sand. Do you know how nice it is not to have a towel that’s full of sand? It’s priceless. I really recommend the Nomadix beach towel for all of your travel needs.
