The Pack Towl by MSR

Nano-packtowlThe PackTowl, spelled without an “e,” is a minimalist backpacker’s best friend.  There are four different kinds of PackTowls but all have one thing in common: they absorb a heck of a lot of water.

The Original PackTowl

The original PackTowl revolutionized the towel industry by absorbing ten times its weight in water. Even then, it wrings out almost completely dry every time. Made out of a natural and sustainable fabric, it gets softer with every wash and gets better with age. It comes in two sizes: a small light travel size that’s perfect for minimalist backpackers and travelers looking for small tools to do big jobs and a bigger towel for more convenient use for bathing.

The Personal PackTowl

Softer than the Original PackTowl, this towel absorbs 4 times its weight in water and wrings out almost dry. It’s made of a poly nylon micro fiber blend instead of a natural fiber like the Original so it’s better suited for washing up or drying sensitive skin. If you’re worried about not being able to wash your towel often and are going on a long trip, you’ll enjoy the anti-microbial feature of the Personal PackTowl too.

The Ultralight PackTowl

With a full bath towel size option weighing only 3.1 ounces, the Ultralight is a great option for minimalist packers who care about weight but still want something that can do double duty easily and is the size of a standard bath towel. It’s not as absorbent as the Original PackTowl, absorbing only 4 times its weight in water, but makes up for the loss of absorbency with a lighter weight. It’s ideal for canoe and kayak trips because it tucks into a small space easily but still provides enough drying power to clean up at the end of the day.

The Nano PackTowl

For the most technologically advanced towel on the market, the Nano PackTowl is the one you want. It soaks up twice its weight in water and wrings dry just like all the other PackTowls. It’s laser cut so there are no edges to fray and no stitching to scratch skin. It also has anti-microbial features too to keep it fresher longer.

We’ve got different PackTowls in stock so be sure to come in and see which towel meets your camping needs best.
