As anyone who has ever tried to jam more than a few days worth of kit into a rucksack or beach bag will know all too well, towels are the arch enemy of packing light. For something you only need once or twice a day it takes up way too much space that would be far better used for your travel speakers, picnic, camera, mask & flippers, or dare we say it a few chilled bottles of something delicious. Not only does a trad towel hog way too much space when dry, but post plunge it gets everything else you've so carefully packed wet, and somehow weighs as much as a small child. Charming as small children can occasionally be, you don't want to be carrying one around for long. The Pocket Towel is the perfect solution. Not only does it pack up absurdly small taking up less space than a lemon, but it dries in nano seconds (figuratively speaking). Made from an ultra-fine woven micro fibre it unfolds to 80 x 40cm and its super-absorbency will soak up three times its weight in water. Better than a traditional towel in every way we can imagine, the Pocket Towel is your ultimate travel companion (with perhaps the exception of a porter) whether you're going to the beach for the day, or the Amazon for considerably longer. It's a backpacker's dream and a day-tripper's delight.
- A super absorbent, fast drying compact towel.
- The towel absorbs three times it's weight in water.
- Drying time simply consists of wringing out the water and then it is ready to use again.
- The towel compacts into a pocket-sized pouch.
- Colours of towel may vary.
- Suitable for ages 8 years+.
- Pouch: 8 x 8 x 5.5cm
- Towel: 80 x 40cm.

I bought this Pocket Towel for my son who enjoys walking and camping. It's ideal for a long weekend and is just as described.
I bought a few of these Pocket Towels for my Son, Nieces & my Dad! The children swim a lot and my dads a scuba diver. I saw them in use at the Olympics and because you wring them out, they are ready to use again. They wring them out with their swimwear, so no wet backs when carrying swim bags home. It also means they have a lighter load to carry.
The Pocket Towel works as well as it should.
What is it made of?!
The Pocket Towel does exactly what it says, no complaints. It is incredibly absorbent and fast drying.
Must have addition to your bag
Perfect things these! I have kids and I keep one of these in my bag at all times - they use up so little space. We take 4 of them camping with us - fast to dry out, and 4 take up less space than 1 regular towel and space saving is what its all about when you are packing to go camping! I have been telling all my friends who camp to get them!
you didn't know you needed this!
No hiker/ camper/ mother should be without this amazing towel! It may seem expensive, but is so light, small and absorbent it really is worth it.
Great for Bears
We are going to Alaska and needed something that would pack up really small in our rucksacks when we went grizzly bear watching, this towel is excellent, small, and really dries well, don't know it it will frighten the bears but always worth a try!
Perfect for camping trips, travelling, or just a weekend away. Very absorbent, and quite unbelievable when it fits back into that tiny pouch!
Every woman's handbag item...
I have bought this for my friends' Birthday, on looking at the hand towel I realised it is the perfect present... Any woman can relate to the need for major essentials in our bags, but this item is so small yet it speaks volumes in answering all of our nightmares. No need to carry tissues, no worries if we get wet and we can stay anywhere knowing we have this petite anxiety reducer. They do say the greatest things come in small packages... Amen!
Good product, although a little on the small side, but great for taking to the beach as an extra towel
Thank you Santa! Even though it's very small I managed to dry all of me. No going back to chuncky towels now - this is comming to the beach next holiday!
Will be ideal gift for the traveller we have purchased this for. Pocket to store it in can be attached to rucksack so even better
great for travelling
The neatest travel towell I have ever seen, not used as a presant for a friend travelling in bolivia and peru next year. I would buy this again!!
Small but perfectly formed.....
Does what it says on the tin (well, it doesn't actually come in a tin, but you know what I mean).
