    It doesn't understand the word "wet."

    The Sea to Summit DryLite Antibacterial Towel dries you off and then dries itself quickly, making it excellent for backpacking, traveling, camping, and boating. This microfiber towel has a suede finish to make it super soft and comfy next to your skin. An antimicrobial treatment resists foul odors to keep it fresh for a long time, and you can still wash it without interfering with its antimicrobial quality. It can hang from tree branches and the like thanks to the press-stud hang loop, and there are multiple sizes so you can get one for your body and one for your camping dishes.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Can't believe how quickly this dries off! Hiked to some hot springs and easily packed this away in a small pocket on my pack. Large size towels off two people fairly easily and the medium might be able to be shared in a pinch as well. Very absorbent material. Antimicrobial treatment is a nice addition and does not detract from the towel's "softness." If you like jumping in rivers, lakes, springs, etc during your hikes, this is an ideal addition to your pack.

    Perfect travel towel

      I used this every day on a trip to Iceland where a dip in the local hot springs pool is a must. The towel packs well and dried me off quickly after swimming. I bought a small which was perfect for a lightweight, easily packable towel in my carry-on (note that the small does not provide much coverage, which was not a concern for me).

      Best backpacking towel

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Love this towel. I bought the large size and it is enough towel to dry off two adults after a swim. It absorbs water well and more importantly drys very quickly. I originally bought this towel for backpacking, but I've started to use it at the public pool and other events just because it is so compact and convenient to carry.

      Amazing towel!

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      Picked this up for a friend backpacking around Asia and he has been so stoked for it. Was looking for something very minimal and easy to dry since he will be backpacking around for 100 days. Its small, lightweight, and dries fast. If your are looking for something that fits this bill look no further. Sea To Summit has done an amazing job and a fantastic product.

      Small and Dries Quickly

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I got this towel to take on road trips, as I need a towel that can dry quickly on the dash of my car and doesn't take up too much space when it isn't being used, and this fits the bill perfectly. I've been pleased so far, and the towel gets me and my mane of hair very dry.

      Best travel towel in the game.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This towel is AWESOME! I bought one last year before backpacking around Japan for a few weeks and was blown away by how useful it was, so I just bought another one for my boyfriend as a Valentine's Day gift. It's super soft, which is something a lot of travel towels lack. It also dries incredibly fast, and the Large size is perfect--it covers everything, so you can feel safe walking around in it after you shower. I highly, highly recommend this product to any traveller or lover of the outdoors. You'll never regret throwing it in your bag.

      Perfect for traveling

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I bought the M and L version, I personally prefer the L one because I have a long hair and the M does not wrap all up . This is perfect for backpacking because it dries really quick, it packs super small and does not smell.
      In spite of all the pros I wrote, I do not use it daily because you feel like it does not dry you off as a conventional towel does; I mean this towel will dry you off but there is a weird feeling that it does not.

      Amazing towel!!!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I'm 5'10 185 lbs., so I ordered this towel in a large for a backpacking trip along the Na Pali Coast in Kauai. I received this towel just days before my trip and I was somewhat skeptical this towel would work adequately as a beach/shower towel in the middle of a tropical forest. The towel comes in a case slightly larger than a wallet and was feather light compared to the standard bathroom towel I had planned on taking. I doubted something so small and light would completely dry me. I couldn’t have been more wrong. This towel is simply amazing!!! The material is extremely soft and I never needed to ring it out to dry completely. I love this towel and highly recommend it. I followed Kirsten’s advice regarding washing the towel prior to first use and never experienced any problems with the dye running. Without a doubt one of my favorite recent purchases.

      My go to trail towel.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I knew the cotton towel "borrowed" from the gym years ago wasn't going to cut it forever but it took me a long time to believe I should buy a replacement that was, well, not towel prices.

      I've been hiking with one of these for about a year now and as someone who sweats more than they'd like too no matter the temp, it is a must have. True to its marketing, it really doesn't get wet or at least it doesn't stay wet, even on snowy mountains. Folds down well enough to actually get back into the carrying case though I tend to throw it into a cargo pocket at the start of a trip and keep it there until I'm back to the car and into the wash from there along with everything else.

      Have a medium myself which is plenty big for pretty much any practical trail use.

      Small, Light and Dry

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I purchased this product after having the DryLite Towel for several years (which is also great! but my sister took mine so I needed to replace it). I have taken this towel backpacking and it is soft and lets me dry off very quickly.

      ***Just make sure you wash it (not in a load with other things) before using it for the first time.*** I didn't do this, and it turned my skin slightly blue-ish the first time I used it. But once it has been properly washed it is fantastic!

      For reference, the other one I had (size large, though it wasn't anti-bacterial) has been used on many international trips as well (including an entire summer in Israel, 3 months traveling in South Africa, etc). It is the only towel I ever needed to bring because it works as well as a big fluffy towel (and is still soft) but takes up virtually no space.
