    If you have money to buy that, why not use some towel in your house and donate the 30 to kids that always have to sleep with empty stomach in Africa.

    naa jk but 30 for a towel is a rip off.

    Dude, do you really need people's opinions on that?
    Well that's very expensive, and I think the novelty will wear off faster than you think. Unless we're talking about some 100% silk hand made by Nepalian shepherds wives ****. Save your money, there's recession going on!

    I'd pass if I were you. I bought one and it sucks. The threads started balling up and coming off on the first washing and it looks really worn even though it is only a couple of months old and is rarely used & washed. It really looks more like a bath-mat than a towel now. On the other hand, I bought a KSwiss Australian Open towel and the difference in quality is night & day. This one is a tight velour and looks the same after many uses and washings. It is hard to find cool towels.

    LOL! Well, in case of recession we should keep spending money, right? But anyway, 30 bucks is IMO ridiculous. Yeah, sent the money to hungry african kids!

    Hah yeah, in a recession, technically we should spend more. But I don't know if I'd spend on a freakin' towel.

    I'll second that. No need to waste money on a towel where it'll be worn out after months of usage and washing.

    How would a towel be high tech? I don't see what's so good in a towel that will cost that much. You would be better off going to Macy's or Walmart and buying a towel under $10 instead.

    Nope, go to "bed bath and beyond" and buy an actual good quality towel that is functional. You'll be happier.

    While you may not be able to show your LOVE for the US Open, you can feel proud in the fact that you went and found a quality product for something as inane as a towel.

    And it may keep you dry better as well and wont get soaked as quickly.

    (my real point is that if you are willing to pay $30 for some crappy towel that says US Open on it, you'd be better off spending that money on the best towel you can possibly find, it's not that you should just pay $5 at walmart)

    I would like to get those towels the pros get during matches. Each Slam has liek their own towels with some pretty cool designs and colors. I dunno about $30, but maybe $15 if it's from a certain slam/year.

    I was at the Polo ralph lauren outlets in Lancater PA and they had a slew of the US Open 08 towels for 9.99. and then they were 75%off. So i bought a blue and a white. They are a pretty decent towel, but not for 30 bucks. but for 2.50 heck yea dude
