Tyr Dry Off Sport Towel

rated 5.0 of 5 stars

This towel was invented and marketed to competitive swimmers, but is perfect for those who like to be clean in the backcountry. It works well as a washcloth, but it works better than a cotton towel, though it must be wet for it to dry!


  • Function
  • Durability
  • Versatility


  • It must be in its desired shape when hung to dry cuz when it's dry it's as hard as cardboard.

This washcloth/towel from the swimwear company far surpasses any other similar towel product sold for backpacking. The little towel holds an incredible amount of water for washing and then can be wrung out to use for drying before handing to the next person to bathe. 

It needs to be wet to function. And when hiking in the desert, keep it in a wet ziplock and wipe yourself down at the end of the day. There is no longer a reason to be a stink bomb when trekking unless you consider it a merit badge.
