We can't help it, we all like to have quality shiny equipment at hand when out in the wilds. The items you'll find in the equipment section have been selected for their weight, value for money and performance.

Sometimes the most expensive isn't the right tool for the job, and we have tried to give honest reviews on which circumstances will allow the products to perform at their best.

Packtowl UltraLite is the lightest, most compact microfiber towel on the market, perfect for camping, travel, or any situation where weight and space are at a premium. It absorbs water quickly and dries very quickly.

It isn't as luxurious against the skin as some of the other heavier towels, but it certainly is the smallest, most efficient and lightest. Once wet, it seems like only moments before it is dry and ready to pack.

We've used this on long backpacking trips, on unexpected overnight business trips and general travelling. Certainly not a replacement beach towel, but a great little item to keep in your compact wash kit for any eventuality.

This colour is a rather nice darker blue and the Body size is 64cm x 137cm.

Supplied with a grey pocket and weighs 96g.


  • Extra-compact
  • Folds up small for trips when space is limited
  • Superlight at 96g
  • Even the largest size weighs less than four ounces, while the smallest comes in at well under an ounce.
  • Fast-absorbing
  • Soaks up water like a sponge
  • Quick-drying
  • Wrings out almost completely dry

Weight: 96 g
Size: 25 x 54 in / 64 x 137 cm

Lightweight small towel that is big enough
Tuesday, 16 September 2014  | 

I'm 186cm and all too often find lightweight towels have to be rung out several times to get a whole body dry. This does not, perfect size and very effective. Drys quickly packs small.

Flimsy but effective

The towel is a little bit on the flimsy side, but it is REALLY light and absorbs a huge amount of water.
