Nothing like having a bathrobe at the campsite.
The Packtowl RobeTowel is lightweight and compact so you can take a bathrobe wherever you roam, whether you're hopping from hotel to hotel or camping at your favorite national park. Or even, if you have your priorities straight, when you're backpacking. Its polyester and nylon blended fabric has a super-soft feel and soaks up four times its weight in water to dry you after a shower or take a dip in a lake. An antimicrobial treatment ensures that this robe won't smell bad after weeks on the road. The RobeTowel also features a generous hood to cover your wet head, two deep pockets sized to multiple sundry items, and an included storage pouch keeps the robe small in your bag.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This robe is perfect for rocking at a hotel hot tub, hot springs or in your house. Awesome gift for the guy or gal who has everything. Do they have a robe that holds a 1L Platypus water bottle or a PlatyPreserve? Do they have a robe with an oversized hood to keep their hair from freezing? (That's a real thing. I lived in Gunnison, CO) Well then, this is perfect!
I don't always wear Robes, but when I do
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Packtowls are sweet, there's no doubt about that. Quick drying, light weight, and easily packable. We can probably all agree on that.
As far as robes go, that is where disagreements may begin to sprout. I'm not a robe guy. No bunny slippers and big terry-cloth plushness for me on the weekend mornings. So when my wife got this for me, I was a bit skeptical.
This robe is exactly what you'd expect from PackTowl, except for the size. It's a robe- not a tiny little square and easily foldable towel. The need for this in the back country is minimal. But when it comes to my deck, and the hot tub- this thing is pree-mo. The PackTowl material everyone has come to know and love keeps the robe-lifting arctic gusts at bay, absorbs all the hot tub drippings from my appropriately cooked bod, and it drys quick enough to hang in my closet without worrying about soggy shoes in the morning. When I say that "I've put it through the wringer," it's literal. I've used this to mop up some serious puddles, and after a quick wringing, it's back in action. But in the non-literal "wringer" sense, I've used it several times a week for what has to be almost a year now, and its still drying me like it did straight out of the package with little to no wear (I don't imagine many robes experiencing a whole lot of wear and tear?). There is nothing lightweight or space saving about this baby(silk would be a better option if you're into that kind of thing), but if you can find a reason to use this around the house, it comes highly recommended.
What size would you recommend for a guy that is 5'7" about 155lbs? Thanks!
The small should be a good fit for him. If not, I will cover the return shipping, on an exchange.
