Tysonwrote a review of Packtowl Ultralite Towel on March 17, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Picked up a body-sized towel in the clay colour. After looking at a few options, these towels seem to be the smallest and most packable option, while also remaining functional.
Arrived in a small grey rectangular zip stuff sack, packed nice and flat. First impression was that it is a nice earthy colour, and material felt good quality. It's nice and thin and packable, but not too thin or cheap feeling. The towel has a sewn-on loop with a button closure so that you can easily hang the towel on a line to dry or use the loop to roll up the towel if you choose not to use the stuff sack. I feel the body size towel is perfect for backpacking- definitely large enough to dry yourself off, large enough to lay out and do a good morning stretch on, but not so large that you feel you're taking up unnecessary space in your pack.
I wanted to wash the thing before taking it backpacking for the first time, in case of any colour bleed. I took a shower and used it to dry off, and it works exceptionally well. I would say even better than a standard cotton bath towel. I was able to wring it out very easily, threw it in the wash, and hung to dry. It dried quickly and packed up easily into the stuff sack.
What more can be said? Does the trick. Pick one up.
