nice to have
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
These towels work very well and I really like the pouch. I got the large. Had a small before, This is much better. It dries quick and packs nice. It also reaches all the way around so I can keep from scaring any unsuspecting visitors.
This is a great little backpacking towel. I currently own the medium and it is a great size. As you can see in my picture, it is a little smaller than a Nalgene bottle, so it does not take up a lot of room. It seems to dry fairly quickly, but I have never had it soaked all the way through. I mostly use this towel to either dry my hair, or wipe my legs off after a river crossing. I would by this product again!
Own the L, getting the XL
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've been using my L eucalyptus towel for over a year now and love it. It tags along at the lake, camping, backpacking, kayaking...basically anywhere I could possibly use a towel. It works great and dries rather quickly. Bear in mind, I'm in Montana and don't have high humidity problems. I also have super-thick hair down to mid-back and love the super-absorbency of this towel. It's like a squeegee for my hair. Most of the excess water (dripping wet) on the towel comes from my hair. I tend to wash up at night, hang the towel on the line, then use a corner in the AM to wash my face/clean up in the morning. When we head out on the trail, I leave the towel in my pack with the wet portion hanging out to air dry while hiking. Usually less than 30min and that sopping wet corner is dry.
My hair has since outgrown the L towel, so I will be buying an XL one and taking that on the trail.
I also have one that we use on the dogs when we take them to the lake. Does a great job getting them dry before loading them in the car.
As a girl with all this hair, the TekTowel is my towel of choice. When I had short hair, the DryLite was perfectly fine for all my needs. Now, it's a frustrating undertaking.
Even if you aren't an outdoorsy person, but need a good hair-drying towel you can't go wrong with this one.
Not too shabby
Took two of these medium-sized towels on a weekender and they stood up pretty good. Use them as a hand towel in the bathroom or something before you go backcountry with them though. They need to be broken in a bit first. They're twice as effective once they have been broken in. They dry quickly and are very light when bone dry. Pro tip... Wrap your half used hand warmer in a damp towel before going to sleep and wake up with it dry. Works for sweaty boots too. The case is nice but the mesh sections allow for dirt/sand in (although I realize it lets moisture out)
Trail weight is 7.1oz fyi
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
So, when I mean big, it's pretty thick. This towel absorbs a lot of water. It is like a microfiber towel and although it absorbs a lot of water for it's size it doesn't compact as small as other towels. It feels more like a real towel which is a plus but when I'm back packing, I want something "small". Sea to Summit makes another towel that is much thinner and absorbs a lot of water too, but maybe not as much (It's similar to Packtowl). But I can easily just wring it out and it's ready to go again. It's somewhere, from a texture point of view, between this towel and a sham-wow.
Because of this towels heft, it also takes a lot longer to dry. I wring out as much water as I can and it still retains quite a bit of water so that it takes a bit to dry. The cloth is damp after wringing and will definitely transfer moisture to clothing if it's in contact with it, unlike the lighter tek towel. This might be something I take car camping with me, not backpacking.
