UOG TOP PICK - Sea to Summit Airlite Towel - Best for size to weight ratio - We've singled out Sea to Summits Airlite Towel as one of our top recommendations because it's one of the lightest towels we stock when compared to others of the same or similar size. It's one of the most compact too!
A towel is an essential companion for a traveller and the Sea to Summit's Airlite Towel is an incredibly light-weight and packable option.
Sea to Summit says
Our towel range now includes the Airlite: an ultralight and super compact towel designed for minimalist adventures and everyday activities.
The Airlite fabric is 50% lighter than our Pocket Towel. Like all our towels, it is made from microfibre yarn allowing it to absorb three times it's weight in water. The low fabric weight results in a high surface area making the Airlite our fastest drying towel. After use, simply tie it to your backpack and it will dry in no time.
By laser-cutting the edge instead of over-locking, we have further reduced the exceptionally small packed size so it fits easily into a backpack waistbelt, gym bag or travel tote.
The storage stuff sack is connected with a press stud to keep them together and can be disconnected during use. When hanging the towel, reconnect the stuff sack and hand on the webbing strap. They are colour matched to the towel and clearly labelled for easy identification.
Sea to Summit's Airlite Towel is incredibly light-weight with a tiny pack size but still feels soft next to the skin. An essential travel companion.
The towel has a small popper allowing you to attach it to the stuff sack so you always know where your towel is and enables you to hang up the towel to dry.
