The Pocket Towel is our lightest option that also dries most quickly. It comes in Small (16 inches x 32 inches), Medium (20 inches x 40 inches), and Large (24 inches x 48 inches). The Pocket Towel has a “silky soft” finish.
If you are looking for the smallest-possible packed volume, the Pocket Towel is the one to choose.
Our Dryite Towel has a super soft suede finish. It is compact and dries quickly. It is available in five sizes from hand-towel-size to beach-towel-size.
DryLite Towels are a great balance between weight/packed volume and absorbency – for backpacking and other pursuits where weight and packed size are an issue, the DryLite may be the perfect towel.
The Tek Towel feels the most like a traditional terry cloth towel. Because it is made of Microfiber is it still super absorbent and quick drying.
The greater surface area provided by the ‘terry cloth’ loops means greater absorbency – the Tek Towel is our most absorbent towel. Tek Towels are the most luxurious-feeling travel towels out there – but they are heavier and bulkier than DryLite Towels.
So if weight is your most important concern, the Pocket Towel is the one you need. If you prefer the feel of a traditional towel, then go for the Tek Towel. And if you are somewhere in between, then the Drylite is your choice. Regardless of which towel you choose, all of our Microfiber towels are compact yet thirsty.
Just remember two things when washing the towels:
1. Always wash the towel separately for the first few laundry cycles. Sea to Summit towels are not colorfast dyed and may ‘bleed’ some color.
2. Fabric softeners should not be used. Fabric softeners prevent the microfibers from absorbing moisture and may also lengthen drying time significantly.
