Sea To Summit's Airlite microfibre towels are ultralight, super compact, and designed for minimalist adventures and everyday activities.
The Airlite fabric is 50% lighter than the Pocket Towel™. It is made from microfibre yarn allowing it to absorb over three times its 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 in 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 hang on the webbing strap. They are colour-matched to the towel and clearly labelled for easy identification.
