Our "EXTREME" ULTRA LIGHT backpacking towel is a must-have for serious backpackers. Featured in BACKPACKER magazine's most recent "Essential Gear Guide", you know it must be good!
The Extreme Ultralight is 34" x 28" and weighs under 3 ounces, so you can still carry a towel large enough for swimming or bathing! These pack into very small spaces.
If you are one of those "crazy" minimalists, we make an even smaller version below. Weighing approx. 1.3 oz, it's approx. 19" square, and serves as towel, neck, or headgear. We've been told you can even strain your camp-coffee through it. Now that's versatile!
NEW....NEW...NEW... We are now offering our Extreme Ultralite, in a larger size. Now you can get a full-size 34" x 58" large Extreme towel, as well as the regular 34" x 28" regular and 19" x 19" mini, in our best-selling silky extreme fabric. Olive Brown, Red, and Royal Blue!
We are often asked how much space our towels take up. We can offer the following comparisons, however keep in mind that even when you know the dimensions you can squish them down much smaller! There is not a lot of difference in volume, although the Extreme takes a bit less...but there is significant difference in weight between Ultra Fast-Dry and Extreme Ultralite styles.
58" x 34" (Our largest size) Ultra Fast-Dry 7"x3"x3" Extreme Ultralite 7"x2.5"x2.5" (approx. 288 grams vs. approx. 162 grams for Extreme)
34" x 28" (Typical Backpackers choice) Ultra Fast-Dry 7"x2.5"x2.5" Extreme Utralite 7"x2"x2" (approx. 139 grams vs. approx. 98 grams or less for Extreme)
SALE!! We sometimes have a supply of Ultralight towels that are either discontinued fabric styles or that have small blemishes on the fabric or stitching or may be slightly off standard measurements. Or, they may be first quality in colors that are not going to win beauty contests! Some may have very small flaws that will not affect the performance or overall look of the towels. The different fabric styles offer the same antibacterial fast-dry features of our new style, but may be a slightly different fabric texture.
Available in both Regular 34" x 28" and Large 34"x58" Ultra Light Towels. Army T-Shirt is tan with slightly orange-ish tinge. The fabric is soft and luxurious. Olive Brown is darker and the fabric is silkier. Both work extremely well. We also have Charcoal, Navy, Royal or Red. As we don't ever "plan" to have 2nds, we don't guarantee any of these color choices, so just state what you prefer (in what order) and if we have it, you'll get your choice. Otherwise, you'll get our choice!
