Discovery Ultra Fast-Dry Towel
Price Paid: $29.95
I've read numerous reviews about these unusual towels...but you can't believe everything you read. I purchased one about 6 months ago for a trip that involved lots of water sports, but I ended up using it for so much more.
It was, as described, an extremely fast drying towel. I was not able to wash it regularly but it never got musty smelling...I've had towels go moldy on me before. But I also used it as a blanket on trains & planes, and slept on it to stay dry in the tropics. It was a great cover-up and I even used it for a shawl when going into a museum...talk about versatile. I'm getting a few more for our RV.

The Ultra Fast Dry Towel from Discovery Trekking Outfitters is great for travelling, backpacking, car camping or a day at the beach.
Dry yourself off after a quick dip in an alpine lake or a training session at the local lap pool with the moisture-hungry Discovery Trekking Outfitters Ultra Fast-Dry towel. 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. Large-size towel is great for swimming and travel; it can even be used as a blanket while on the airplane. With a UPF 15 rating, fabric provides good protection against harmful ultraviolet rays.
