Bulkier than a normal towel due to the pillow

How Tillow Beach Towel Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. You’ll never have to rent a beach chair again with this super comfortable towel, plus you’ll be protecting your belongings at the same time.
  • Value: 8/10. $35.99 is expensive for a towel, but you also get the pillow and storage compartments, so this isn’t a bad deal for what the product includes.
  • Portability: 7/10. Although the pillow adds bulk, the Tillow still rolls up fairly compactly for easy carrying
  • Cool Factor: 10/10. The Tillow comes in cool designs, and everyone will want one of these once they see how comfortable you are lounging on your pillow!

Final Verdict: Do you get uncomfortable lying on a beach towel without any head support? Always getting sand in your phone at the beach? The Tillow solves all of your problems.
