The German military terry cloth is a surplus terry cloth originally used by those serving in the Bundeswehr. Woven with long loops that can absorb a ridiculous amount of moisture, the German military terry cloth puts similar towels to shame.
Each German military terry cloth offered by Keepshooting.com is an authentic piece of German military surplus. These cloths were once pieces of standard-issue field gear and would have been originally designed for and issued to service members enlisted in the German heer, or army, which is one of the five service branches that makes up the Bundeswehr, otherwise known as the unified armed forces of Germany.
Constructed from 100 percent cotton and noted for its high level of absorbency, the German military terry cloth is a small, blue terry cloth that measures approximately 35 inches by 18 inches.
These are really great to throw into a range bag. They are good to mop up water on the shooting bench and to wipe your hands off when cleaning the guns.They're cheap enough that I don't care if they get stained and destroyed.
These would probably be good to throw in the trunk or to take camping as well.
Nice camp towel; I'll another next time I order something.
Review byDark Earth
Mine arrived looking new, and not musty or smelly and is just fine for a camp towel car camping.
Worth every penny
I ordered one with some other items, just to see....it's great. One trip through the washer took care of the storage smell, and did no damage to the towel. I will be ordering a few more to stuff in each pack.
Excellent and very handy
Everytime I order from KS I pick up a few more of these. They're great sweat towels, some are stuffed in packs and vehicles for emergencies, work locker, you name it. They are new, so they need a good washing to "soften up". They're great quality, hold up well, and if they get so messed up you can't even wash them, they're cheap enough to dispose of. I love these things!
My second order
I just placed my second order for one of these. I keep the first one in my go bag for work. I use it often and love the loop sewn onto the ends for hanging dry. And you can't beat the price.
Great little towel
Review byHerr Alpenflage
Arrived in new condition, absorbs moisture quite well. Will be ordering more!
Good Spare Towels
I bought 3. 2 were in good shape, 1 was like brand new. Some are dark blue like in the picture, some and a lighter shade of blue. Was worth it. They will go in my survival bag.
Not "As such, many of these cloths remain in excellent condition"
I recently ordered 4 of these based off the description and reviews that these towels were in like new condition. The four I received were not even close to like new. One had a major patch poorly sewn into it that did not fix the hole, another had two holes in it each large enough to slip a sharpie though them. The last two have snags and pulls all throughout the reverse side and stains on them. Save your money and just buy some plain shop towels.
Very good towel
Great towel for everyday use. Brand new and will be using it for numerous things. For the price wish I had ordered more, which I will be.
These are great towels. I am a wetland Biologist and my job requires me to be out in the field everyday. I purchased ten of these towels because my wife did not want me using the bath towels anymore. They work great for drying off and just about any job I need them to do in the field. Thanks Keepshooting
Ordered one and well worth the money
I saw this new surplus item and ordered one with my order to see what they are like. I bought this and can say it is well worth the price. The one I received was like new and worked to dry my car after a wash.
I will order a few more with my next order for various other task around the house.
