Traditional towels are bulky and take ages to dry unless the weather is good. Spend a week's camping with perpetually damp towels and you'll quickly realise that getting travel towels is totally the way forward. These dry in 3/4 of the time of a traditional towel and are also less bulky. Imagaine the folded dimensions of a couple of mans hankies and you get the idea. Smaller than the Mega Micro Fibre towel but still capable of wrapping around youfor a really good towel drying experience. Beautiful soft material that your nails don't catch on, unlike some travel towel materials, and a bold colour so easy to find in a cupboard or rucksac.
Stop reading the reviews and order one now. You won't regret it, you'll just regret all those camping trips where most of your ruc sac was a towel that made your other clothes damp!
