PackTowl UltraLite

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Amazing absorbent, quick drying, lightweight, and basically exceeded my expectation on every level. It is a permanent part of my backcountry gear. This pack towel lives up to its promised performance. Incredibly absorbent and wrings out almost dry. It air dries very quickly. When dry it is very lightweight. I found this towel to be great for drying off anything wet or to mop up spills. It is also soft to the skin.  The convenient snap loop is great to hang it off of your pack to dry while hiking.

Innate Outdoor Travel Towel

rated 5 of 5 stars This lightweight towel saves you room and dries quickly. No need for a big bulky beach towel to take all the room in your pack. Perfect for world travel or a quick weekend trip into the backcountry. Full review

PackTowl Nano

rated 3.5 of 5 stars An airy 24g/.84 oz to boost personal hygiene or to wipe condensation off your single-wall shelter in the morning. Well-designed mini towel delivers good results despite its minuscule size and weight. Not luxuriously soft, but imminently practical. Cascade Designs' Nano PackTowl is a light wisp of cloth—85% polyester, 15% nylon—that offers trekkers or other travelers an option to make their backcountry hygiene a tad easier. It packs into its own mesh carrying pouch, unfolding into a 16-inch by… Full review

Sea to Summit Dry Lite Towel

rated 5 of 5 stars Smallest towel around, great for hiking. Bought a small one of these for an overnight hiking trip. I was so impressed that I bought a larger one once I got home. The small sizes make an awesome sweat rag for hard climbs (I used it for the Kokoda trail). The larger ones make an awesome travel/hiking towel. Simply use, wring out and hang to dry on the outside of your pack/tent. Rinses easily when it's dirty and works even when it's soaked.  Full review

Perfect Fitness Cooling Towel

rated 0.5 of 5 stars It is an exercise cooling towel made of a hyper-evaporative material. You are suppose to wet it, wring it, and then wrap it around your neck. I bought one of these to help keep me cool while hiking and to wipe down my gear before packing it up. I did exactly as it suggests... I soaked it with my water bottle it, wrung it out, and wrapped over my neck. It tells you that when it does not feel cool anymore to soak it again. What it does not tell you is that it may causing swelling and a red rash with… Full review

Lightload Towels

rated 5 of 5 stars Kick Ass Towels!!! Really cool little towels. I bought a two pack on Amazon for under $5. The have the texture of a cross between a shamwow and a guitar rag. They come with a little list of what all you can do with them. Kinda like a multi use bandana you can dry up with. You can wash them too for when they get funky. I will keep a few on hand at all times. Two in the pack, two in the truck. I love these little things.   Full review

PackTowl Personal

rated 3 of 5 stars Xl lime green camp towel. My lady got me the XL packtowel and was surprised on how big it actually is. Way too big for backpacking but might be okay for taking in the canoe. Was really nice and soft but when drying off it's more of a pat down other than wiping down. The snap on the loop to hang the towel broke on me as soon as i opened it! I think i will cut it in half and share with the girlfriend for hiking Full review
