Not all microfiber towels are created equal. We collected microfiber towels from Walmart, Target and K-Mart. They’re “all purpose” type terry microfiber towels. We wanted to compare them to our 16″x16″ All Purpose Microfiber Towel. We put the towels through three tests; a touch test in which we compared how the towels felt to the touch, a weigh test and an absorbency test. We made a video of the test:

Here’s a quick breakdown of the results:

Vendor Size Weight GSM Softness








(1-10) 16×16 54 Grams 337 8 9 9
Walmart 14×14 36 Grams 293 8 3 8
K-Mart 14×16 48 Grams 332 7 3 5
Target 14×14 36 Grams 293 5 7 3

Clearly our towel performed the best. Keep this in mind the next time you see microfiber towels available at a retail store. Are they as absorbent? Will they grab and hold as much? Are they as heavy? Will they last as long?
