Show Description

Step up your towel game. The lightweight Compact Towel absorbs water better than a conventional cotton towel and dries in a flash, so it's always ready for your second swim of the day. An antimicrobial finish keeps it from getting funky – crucial for long trips where laundromats are few and far between. A hang loop with a snap lets you hang it securely over cabin railings or tree branches without worrying about rogue gusts of wind.

  • Corner loop has a snap, making it easy to hang off nearly anything.
  • Eye-catching reflective detailing on the hang loop helps you find it in a dark hostel dorm.
  • Lightweight material absorbs 3.5 times its weight in water, then dries quickly.
  • Antimicrobial finish helps keep it smelling fresh.
  • Small is face-sized, large is hand-sized, X-large is bath-sized and XX-large is beach-sized.
