  Don't Forget To Bring A Towel

REVIEWED BY: CHARLIE    2012-11-21

"I wouldn't take this to the water park or the beach. A regular bath towel beats this in those regards, but that's not what this is designed for. This is designed to get you dry after a bath when carrying a bath towel in your pack on a long hike is too much weight. This isn't so much a towel as it is a water-absorbing-wipe. Mop up the water on your body, wring it out and it feels dry as a bone. You might need to wring it out a couple of times before you feel dry enough to change into your clothes, but it does its job as advertised. It's not merely 'better than nothing', this is a super light alternative to a proper bath towel for back packing. It weighs almost nothing. Hang it off your pack in the mesh pouch to let it dry out completely. Wash it out when you get it home. "
