I have had 2 of these towels since 2006. I have now purchased 2 more as I have been so pleased with the quality and absorbancy. They wash well and dry very quickly. My first towels were purchased from MEC in Toronto Canada but sadly they no longer carry this line. I ordered directly on line from adventuretowel.com as this is the only brand I will purchase. It's an awesome towel, packs small, is light to carry and feels good too.
Towels are soft and absorbent--leaving the skin feeling soft afterwards. We bought 4 different colors for use in our travel trailer and will be using them this summer on a long trip. One thing I really liked...when I first washed them in hot water as directed, there was no fading of the colors into the water! That was impressive!
Lightweight, effective - perfect. This is thinner and more supple than other camp towels but bigger. This makes it about the same weight but way more useful. It even comes with a mesh bag which would allow some drying but more important - you can actually get the towel back into the bag.
Microfibre Bath Towel-Large. I bought 2 of these towels. One each for my husband and myself. We have been riding motorcycles for 35+ years and I am always looking for products that work, yet are compact. One of my major beefs was the amount of space a towel took up. Also it did not dry usually in an overnight setting hanging in or outside the tent. These towels are wonderful. They dry quickly, they fit back into the mesh bag and they are more or less odor free for many days. And they dry you with no problem. I have been recommending them to all my camping/motorcycling friends for the past year!! I think this is a market you need to pursue. A lot of people travel and camp while on motorcycles as well as bicycles.
Great towel! This full sized towel is so thin and lightweight, it can travel anywhere. It's soft, absorbent and dries incredibly quickly. When it needs to be cleaned, simply wash in hot water and hang to dry. I bought this for my gym bag. When my family goes swimming, all three of us could use this one towel if we wanted. It's great for having my own towel when traveling, or just to have a towel on hand for quick treks outside. After all, one should always know where one's towel is. :)
Highly recommended! What a weight and space saver! More importantly, it dries quickly. I use it to roll up my Tilley socks into & wring out so that they also dry overnight. Now that I'm back (3 weeks in Japan) I'll be buying a second (smaller) towel!
Great towel for Kayakers. This product is great for all paddlers, but it is truly perfect for kayakers since space is of the essence. It doesn't take up much room in a dry bag and one you've used it, it drys quickly. This would also be a great gift for avid swimmers, travellers who stay in hostels, or kids who are going to summer/Scouts/Guides camps.
Not cuddly, but worked well. Two weeks of hostel stays, and this towel stayed fresh. It did the job, although it did take several hours to dry, so I avoided showering when I knew I would have to pack up shortly.
Excellent! We really like the fact it still dries you off after you wring it out. Perfect for multiple swims from the beach and snorkeling trips with several stops. Add bonus points because, It also worked as a wind break in between stops when we forgot to bring the fleece and looked like a cheap rag on the beach that no one would want to steal compared to the huge vibrant beach towels with fancy pictures.
Lightweight, compact My boyfriend laughed when I bought one for canoe camping for a weekend but it was compact, very lightweight and dried quickly. I use it for swimming and dragonboat practices at the school pool and since it doesn't emit odor, I can keep it in my gym locker, without having to bring it home everyday and for trips. its large enough to be used as a bath towel to cover the whole body.
Worth the space it takes up. My wife and I used a pair of these on a 3 1/2 week trip through Europe. We used it everywhere from a beach in southern Italy to cleaning up on a train to Vienna. It drys quickly, absorbs well and easily packs up. The only downside was it isn't as soft as a regular towel. When the towel is dry and you are wet, it likes to stick to your skin a bit - it actually works better when it's a bit damp. It's now a standard part of my travel pack.
Microfibre bath towel. Used mine for six weeks climbing in Nepal, no smell,worked great, dried out even under cool temps,make sure it is washed once before use.
Great towel! Took this towel backpacking in Thailand and India. It stood the test! It dried amazingly fast in extremely humid conditions... and absorbed large amounts of water! More than I expected! Cool colors too... definitely a must in any traveler/adventurer's inventory
Best travel towel ever. Took it to Thailand for 3 weeks and it was great. It always dried quickly, even with the high humidity, and never got smelly. It was soft enough. My only concern was how much space it took up in my pack, but it was worth it. If you don't need a full body size towel you could cut it down and take half. This towel is my favorite of 3 different brands I've tried
Very surprised by this product. This towel surprised me. My boyfriend bought one before I did. I wasn't sure if it would cut it as a towel. But it proved me wrong. Dried me off quickly and dried in a snap. The towel was easy to clean when we got home from camping. I bought one of my own on our next trip to MEC.
Adventure Microfiber Towel. Dries quickly but does not dry out again for re-use as fast as others. Compared to the Wick-er Warmup towel recently featured in Camping Life magazine, it is a pretty good second choice.
Fantastic towel. If you're looking for a compact quick drying, but absorbent product for backpacking, hostel travel or travel in general look no further. I use this towel frequently including at the gym. This version is the perfect size for a single traveler.
It's all about the compact. Treking into a park means bare minimums. Any lenthy trip requires a good swim to clean up. Carrying a bath towel, or even a pool towel is too bulky and takes up alot of room in a pack. This towel is perfect for keeping things light and is super absorbant. Not quite as large as expected, won't be as comfortable on a cold day to wrap around.
Look no further! I have had this towel for over 4 years now, have used it religiously every time I travel and it still looks like new. It's compact, lightweight, quite absorbent and drys much quicker than a conventional towel. Other great uses: Head towel (for the girls with long hair), twisting wet clothes into it to get them dryer, quicker, (have had to use this technique when hand washing clothes) and have used it on the beach as it is the only towel I carry with me while traveling. I absolutely love this towel and will use it for life!
Perfect towel! Fantastic product. Great size, packs down tiny, very absorbent. Easy to pack, simple to use and effective.
Excellent travel companion. Dries overnight, large enough for entire body, attaches to backpack easily and is lightweight.
If, like me, you want to pack as little as possible, then this towel is perfect. it rolls up super small and is super absorbant. I use it for my hair even when I'm back home because it makes my hair dry faster than with a normal towel. They come in different sizes, but I think getting a big one is a waste of your precious space (in your backpack), trust me...the small ones are SO absorbant you wont have to worry. Besides even if it gets SOAKED (ie run under water) you can literally wring it out and its back to being absorbant. And it drys super fast.
Great travel buddy! A must have for all your travel adventures. Used towel on our vacation to Costa Rica when we ziplined and swam at the beach. Quick drying, light and small to pack. My husband has the large size and uses is weekly at the pool. A "must have" for your backpack or suitcase.
