Travel light – Bring your sports towel

I like to travel especially doing some outdoor activities. The problem that I used to encounter was when it came to pack my things. I like to bring most of my outdoor gadgets to enable me to do more activities in the places I visited. But as you know that traveling outdoor should be having your back pack as light as possible since I will involve walking a lot while carrying my back pack.

One thing that seems to be ignored by us and could bring us a lot of hassle is a towel. Have you been in the situation where you are confused to bring a big towel or a small towel? You want to bring a big towel because it will dry you up fast after taking a bath or after swimming from the beach. On the other hand, you do not want to have a hassle bringing back a wet large towel in your back pack that will add up to the hassle.

Well, the good thing is that you can find many sports towel that could resolve your problems. I bought this sport towel 2 years back and it helped me a lot. This towel is made from special material that can absorb a great amount of water considered its small size. I just need to squeeze the towel to dry it up and use it again to dry myself. It comes also with a plastic hard cover that I do not need to bother to put it on my back pack. You can see how small the towel is. By the way, the watch there is just for a comparison for the size of the towel :D.

That's pretty cool. I will be heading out on a backpacking trip in a couple weeks. This would be a good addition instead of a regular towel.

I think the backpacking store towels are the best. One in particular is the lightload Towels.
They have a full size beach towel that fits in your pocket. It weighs 5 0z and is great for other things too like a bug repellent and sun screen. REI and summit hut and flight001 sells them.
