The Extreme Ultralite Backpacking Towel from Discovery Trekking Outfitters is a great companion for backpacking, car camping, day hikes and more.
The Discovery Trekking Outfitters Extreme Ultralite mini towel measures just 19 x 19 in. and weighs only 1.3 oz., making it perfect for use on long backpacking trips. Polyester fabric quickly pulls moisture off of your skin and then distributes the moisture across the fabric surface where it evaporates rapidly. Polygiene odor resistant technology utilizes pure silver that is applied to the fabric to help control odors; silver keeps the towel fresh between washings and won't wash out. To maintain odor resistance, wash towel in warm water to remove residue buildup from lotions. With a UPF 15 rating, fabric provides good protection against harmful ultraviolet rays. Towel can be worn as a bandanna to wick moisture off of your head.
