Think About The Weight
Towels are given a density rating in grams per square meter (GSM).
You can get towels with a GSM rating of anything from 300 to 900 but what’s the difference?
A 300-400 GSM rating means you’re getting a nice light towel, the perfect thing for your gym bag or maybe for use in the kitchen.
A 400-600 GSM is going to be of medium weight, this is the perfect weight for beach towels and for regular bathroom use.
Get up to 600-900 GSM and you’re talking about a very dense and very absorbent towel. These can require a little longer to get you dry because though they absorb a lot, they often do so more slowly than other towels. Towels in this range are generally considered to be luxury items.
