Small towel is the everything towel.

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have 2 Packtowls, the L Ultralite is pretty much only used when bathing/swimming. The Small Personal Packtowl is a jack of all trades.
I have the stuff sack hooked to the key clip in the top pocket of my backpack. If I have to ford a creek, I can dry my feet off on the other side with the packtowl and then clip it to the outside of the pack to dry while hiking.
I use it in the morning to wipe condensation off of the tarp or tent fly before packing up. When it's time to dry dishes, the Personal Packtowl is up to bat.
The Small 10"x14" is a great utility size. Packtowl's soak up a lot of water. While I bathe with a Large, I could probably get away with a Medium and if you aren't getting completely wet, a minimalist could get by with a Small for bathing.
Great towels, soft and absorbent, they don't take up much space. I highly recommend them.

A compact necessity.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Don't let a towel take up unnecessary space. This is light weight, and can fit snugly with your toothbrush and other personal items. I bought it for my Highline trip across the Unitas, where weight really matters. I love being able to dry off quick after a alpine dip without having to pack a massive house towel.

A compact necessity.

Super Absorbent and Fast Drying

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This a fantastic little towel! I love how absorbent it is! I've even used it at home as a regular towel on laundry day! It fits back nicely into its little pouch (not all of them do) and I love the fact that it has a little hook to hang it from. It also dries super, super quickly which is what I love most about it. Definitely well worth it!

very absorbant

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I purchased this for trip to Baja California aboard a Lindblad Ship. I used the towel to absorb excess water after doing launder in the bathroom sink and drying off my snorkeling gear. This towel was able to sop up excess water and to allow my clothes & gear to dry over night. The towel also could be wrung out and hung to dry overnight. it folded and could be repacked into the small bag it came in.
I did not have a need, this trip, to take it with me on the snorkeling excursions to dry off since we wore wet suits. I would recommend this towel for anyone needing a light weight, compact, super absorbant towel that can be packed away into its own bag. Did I mention that it is seemed to be quite tough and not likely to fall apart on its first outing, I used the towel almost every day and it held up and did the job.

Does the color in the towels bleed? It seems to be a common issue with the quick drying towels.

Responded on

I have a Blue S2S DryLite towel that hasn't had any problems with bleeding whatsoever, but maybe that is because S2S uses a different blend of ink than Packtowel does? I think as long as you didn't wash this thing with a load of whites, you would be fine, but if you're really worried, wash it once before you actually throw it in with other stuff.

I used it to dry my clothes on a trip and had no color transfer what so ever. I agree with James Howard, If you are worried, Wash it in cold water by its self when you first purchase it.

Take it everywhere

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Started out as my backpacking cloth. Now it goes on every where when I travel. Perfect for car camping, flying, or just road trips. Easy to pack and pull out.

Surprisingly Good...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Some have warned me that such towels do not do a good job drying your body. However, I was pleasantly surprised with this towel. Used it for a month long backpacking/travel expedition. The towel was always dry by morning and did not smell, although other things did (-;
I'm 5 8" and the Large was a good fit. I look forward to using it again.

Liviana, peque�a y �til.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Tengo 2 toallas, L y XL. Large es el tama�o perfecto debido a que es lo suficientemente grande para secarte, no ocupa casi espacio y seca r�pido. La use durante un viaje de mochilero por Argentina, Uruguay y Chile. Se puede meter a lavadora, es muy f�cil de lavar a mano y no la metas a tu mochila muy h�meda por que obviamente va a coger mucha peste. Tiene un cord�n en una punta que te permite amararla para secarla.
La XL es igual de grande que la toalla que usas en tu casa, pero mas liviana. La compre para mi novia y le encanto.

Soft and light

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This little towel is so soft and light. It's perfect for backpacking. I have the medium and it works great for drying your hands and drying off dishes after a long day of hiking. It packs down really small and isn't even noticeable. It fits inside my pots and pans. Won't camp without it.

good lightweight towel

first motorcycle camping trip with it: XL currant made good bath towel; XXL would have made better towel for lounge chairs when encountered, but likely more cumbersome to dry my mop of hair so it's a toss up. drys body nice, hair too, takes a bit longer to dry than i like (while packing up in morning, and we're not very quick about it ) but small & easy enough to throw in saddlebag and pull out at longer fuel/food stops & that does the job. (seems to dry a bit quicker than sea to summit drylite, bought one of each for different color & to compare.) used several times over 6 weeks out. laundered a few times, came out of washer and dryer with all the clothes just fine.

Kelp (Large towel)

Used this to dry myself off after working. Great towel, I got the large.
If you lay it out on a Queen size bed. It would take two towels to stretch across to the other side. Love the feel of it. Very soft! and drys fast! Not to mention it packs away very easily. I might get a smaller one, for sweat.

Useful!

These things are great around camp to dry pots/ dishes and dry youself after bathing! they are great! the large is even a bit too big but it works great!

Well worth the price!

  • Gender: Male

I got the large, which is 5"x7" when folded in its pouch. Works well and dries fast!

Nice quality pack Towel but...

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got the plum one for myself and got the green one for my hike buddy.
It is very nice quality but....
I wish it has some clip to connect the pack so I can just carry with pack together.
However, it is some hook with it, I will deal with this.

great towel

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is worth the cash. I bought a large and it's still smaller than your average bath towel, yet it dries twice as well. I also use it at home as a hair towel or allow guests to use it if I have run out of regular towels. I hear no complaints just people saying "Wow this thing dries fast!". Having this towel has convinced my boyfriend to buy one as well. It also has a hook on it so it can hang dry. The only downside- it's possible to lose the mesh bag it comes it, but no big deal, I can make another.

dries almost too fast!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought 2 of these towels to hook on my running belt. I like to have a cool wet towel on my runs--but it dried too fast on a 3 mile run! I like that it snaps right on my belt. I just had to re-wet it at the water station. So if you're looking for a fast-drying towel, look no further! I have 2 of the smalls and they're perfect.

Perfect pack towel

I bought this in a medium. It's super absorbent and can be wrung out when it gets full to continue using it. The little snap loop on the corner is great for hanging it up. After a shower, mine dried almost completely after a cool, damp night hanging outside.
