    It doesn't understand the word "wet."

    The Sea to Summit DryLite 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. 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.

    Defective, I guess I’m the lucky one

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I just purchased this towel and I look better then that one I got at RE͍, opened, nice size all good. The instructions say to wash it before use., I did , and made sure to wash it according to the instructions but the seam come off!
    I’m disappointed and I’m leaving on my trip, I don’t €™t have time to return and had to run to get one at REI anyways...

    Defective, I guess I’m the lucky one

    ordered extra wash cloth

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    for my already loved and owed sea to summit "wash kit" Dries quickly!! Packs nicely!!
    Taking it hiking, swimming, in vehicles and even vacationing. It’s perfect 👌🏽

    Perfect for everything!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this towel for a recent trip to Belize. I used it everyday after snorkeling. It's a great towel that is super soft and it absorbs water well. I bought the size L and it wasn't quite as big as I was hoping. I'm thinking about getting the XL for my camping adventures this summer!

    Perfect for Camping or Traveling!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    A quick drying towel offered in a variety of sizes to suit your needs. The microfiber suede material feels nice on your skin, and doesn't pick up all kinds of small debris like many other microfiber towels often do. I liked this towel so much I just got one for a friend heading the the Brittish Virgin Islands for a sailing trip!

    Small and lightweight

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

    I Bought the Large and was pleasantly surprised with how small this packs down. it is perfect for bringing with on day hikes to alpine lakes, taking your dog swimming, or backpacking. The blue color looks nice and the hang tag works great.

    Best travel purchase this year!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I used it on my trip to Iceland and it came in handy for everything. Drys really fast and does indeed absorb plenty. It will surely be with me on every trip from now on.


      Works well to dry dishes. Dries super quick.

      HOWEVER. If you're going to buy a microfiber towel, please buy one of these to wash it in!!!!!!!!!

      Microfiber pollution is a huge issue facing our streams and oceans, so please do your part to reduce your impact. Read more here:

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Love this towel for backpacking/camping purposes. I can effectively dry myself and my huge dog, which is awesome for how relatively small it is (I believe I have the medium size). Definitely a solid investment. Highly recommend.

      Tiny, Thin, Terrific!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This towel is pretty awesome! I bought it based off of all the good reviews and i'm not disappointed in the slightest. The way the towel is wrapped in the photo description appears to be a lot thicker than it actually is. In reality, it's actually really thin and small! I ordered a size Large and i'm happy with this size... it's about the size of a regular bath towel as far as length and width go. Nice thing about this towel is that it can pack down super small! Check it out next to my school notebook!

      Makes backcountry bathing easy

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I used this on a cross country journey to save space and hopefully dry quickly. It certainly did both of those. It is extremely pack able, allowing me to daily carry it with me to whatever waterfall or pond I found myself washing my hair in, and it dried out very quickly, even being stored in a vehicle. Great product.


      • 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).
