The Bottom Line: Quick-drying and strong, these thin towels weigh about a quarter of a standard cotton towel and take about about an eighth of the space. This makes them lightweight and compact enough to be easily thrown into a pocket or daypack for any kind of beach, river, or pool outing, not to mention that they can be carried easily into the backcountry on a backpacking trip or hot springs jaunt. Sold as a set that includes towels in three different sizes, Wild Wolf Outfitter's travel towels let the user grab the towel that best fits their needs.

 


The large towel is great for beach lounging in the sun. Shaun Hunter.

Essential! Without question, we carry these micro fiber travel towels with us for any outdoor outing that involves water. They pack incredibly small and add a negligible amount of weight in a pack (the smallest of these towels weighs in at just 1.5 ounces).

While carrying them for beach, hot springs, and river trips may be obvious, these have come in useful on days when the weather turns bad, or letting us wipe moisture off of our camera gear or snowshoes after a day on the trails.

Each towel comes with a loop of fabric for quick and easy hanging, though our preferred method for quick drying tends to be just throwing them over the car seat headrest as we drive to our next destination.

These towels are quick-drying, owing to the synthetic materials they're made of. These towels will go from being completely saturated to dry in 90 minutes. Each towel comes with a fabric loop for easy hanging. In all of our use, we've never experienced any ripping, tearing, or shredding. This includes laying out on sharp granite boulders and generally not being easy on them.

Wild Wolf Outfitters' travel towel set includes three towel sizes, which is great for quickly grabbing one whether you're just wanting a face or hand towel, a swim towel, or something to wipe up gear after a day of use. A large towel is great for laying out in the sand—or perhaps you just like your towels of excessively luxurious proportions.

The only downside, in our opinion, is that the lightweight build of the towels make them a little too thin to really lay out comfortably on top of a rough surface. But the trade off is the fact that these can travel anywhere and tend to be useful for more than just drying off after a swim or on a humid day.

Wild Wolf Outfitters' towel set is a great addition to the pack or car of any active travelers or families. For those who tend to spend a lot of time outdoors, these micro fiber towels aren't just a good idea, they're an essential piece of gear.
