Summary

Amazing absorbent, quick drying, lightweight, and basically exceeded my expectation on every level. It is a permanent part of my backcountry gear.

Pros

  • Absorbent
  • Quick dry
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Snap-on loop breaks easily

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. Unfortunately that is the weak point of the towel. 1 of 3 towels that I have had the snap broke almost immediately. 

The towel performs best if you do not use fabric softener or dryer sheets. I have tried other styles and brands of camp towels as well as household towels advertised to be ultra absorbent, Packtowl Ultralite surpasses all of them in performance. Cascade Designs, Inc makes several varieties of Packtowl, this review is specific to the Packtowl Ultralite.
