This a great towel for cars with some type of protection on it. I can lay this towel on my car and without any pressure pick up all the remaining water off by simply gliding the towel over the car.

I personally like the TRC dry me a river towels but have also purchased the double twistress towels as well, thought this towel would be a nice option as well but seems to grab on the car leaving behind lint which quite honestly defeats the purpose. So in conclusion I will stick with my go to TRC drying towels that I used prior.

This product drys well and absorbs a lot. The towel feels "grabby" so I would shy away from using it on a coated car. I will use this on cars that have not had any paint correction done on it. The amount of water it absorbs in one pass is great though. Works well, but does not feel gentle.

I will buy another one again today. I have never used a more absorbent towel in my life. I have to hand wash my brand new car now because I have a graphine coating on it and there are no touchless car washes in the area, so today I washed my car for the very first time and dried it off with this towel and am amazed at how absorbent it is. One wipe and the water was gone, and one 15 x 24 towel dried my entire mid-size car. These will also make great practical Christmas presents for the guys at work.

My favorite drying towel up until now was the Twist and Shout from The Rag Company. However, I am now switching over fully to the Gauntlet. Worked extremely well and soaked up a ton of water. This combined with what I think is a spectacular price is making it my go-to for drying from now on.

Over the weekend I was able to try the towels out. I washed my Civic Si and used the towels to dry it. I used one of the 20"x30" on the paint and was able to do the entire car with one towel. As a matter of fact I think I could have dried another similar sized care with the same towel. It is important to note that this towel is not one that you can wring out easily as it is very thick. I used the smaller 12"x12" to dry my wheels and it completed dried all four of them and I think I could have dried more with the same towel. Overall I am very happy with the towels and recommend them.

I bought a few different sizes of The Gauntlet straight from TRC as I didn't think DI would have it yet. Whoops. But regardless, I'd like to share my review here for anyone looking at this towel.

Put rather simply, this is not a good drying towel. There are much, much better alternatives on the market, and available here at Detailed Image. My favorite drying towel and the one I used to compare The Gauntlet to was the Gyeon Silk Dryer. The Gauntlet in comparison to the Silk Dryer is basically dead weight. Heavy dead weight in fact. For as big and thick as The Gauntlet is, it doesn't take up any more water than the Silk Dryer. And because of that added thickness and weight, it will make wringing it out much harder, especially for those with carpal tunnel, like myself.

This towel really is all show and no go. It left streaks on my coated cars, forcing me to go back over the car with a proper drying towel. In comparison, I can drag the Silk Dryer over the paint of a coated and even uncoated car and it sucks up all of the water and leaves no streaks.

I really don't know why this towel exists. They should have focussed on making their other drying towels work instead of creating another fancy, non-functioning drying towel. But I guess they're using the same model as Chemical Guys: flood the market with a million different choices so the customer buys something. And from a company that complains about this model in their own videos is a little ridiculous. But I like most of the towels from TRC, and I thought this towel would be different as they profess to not try to flood the market with multiples of the same thing. But alas, I was wrong.
