We purchased this mop in Annapolis at West Marine in 2009. After 13 years she's still holding together. I use it often to dry the boat off and wring it out as needed. The chamois is all in one piece and still held on the mop end. None of the material has torn and it spends the majority of it's time on deck in the tropics. The mop chamois dry out and with any water are back to 100% functional.
I would buy this Chamois again.
