Good morning, team. First, a little bit about these towels: These are highly packable, lightweight, and rated as one of the quickest drying towels ideal for camping and traveling. The microfiber fabric is also touted as being tear-resistant, able to absorb roughly 4 times its weight in water, and has an antibacterial treatment to guard against odors. Lastly, these are quite soft to the touch.
My inspiration to check PackTowl out were the last wave of people who Couchsurfed in my home: Two women from Germany, a man from Canada, and a woman from Italy. They all coincidentally had body-sized PackTowls and swore by them.

I checked the rest of the sizes against CCC, and some of them appear to be down to all-time lows:
- $6.95 - Face - 10 x 14 in (Charcoal and Agave) [amazon.com]; ADD-ON ONLY
- $9.95 - Face -10 x 14 in (Blueberry, Citrus, Clover, and Grapefruit) [amazon.com]
- $13.95 - Hand - 16.5 x 36 in (all colors) [amazon.com]
- $16.95 - Body - 25 x 54 in (Agave, Blueberry, Charcoal, Clover, and Grapefruit) [amazon.com]
- $27.95 - Beach - 36 x 59 in (Agave, Charcoal, Clover, and Grapefruit) [amazon.com]
Pro-Tip: I snagged a PackTowl in blueberry using it as part of an order taking advantage of the $15 off $60 Chase Ultimate Rewards promotion
, since these are shipped from and sold by Amazon.
Also on sale is PackTowl's Luxe line, which are at or near all-time low prices per CCC:
According to Wirecutter, you're sacrificing a little bit of packability and lengthening your dry times in favor of plusher and more luxurious feeling material if you opt for these Luxe towels over the Personal line.
: Out of curiosity, I went to PackTowl's website and saw that they had a total of 5 lines: Personal, Luxe, UltraLite, Nano, and Original. Looks like PackTowl's UltraLite line is also
on sale and at all-time lows (Nano and Original are not). I can't vouch for this line, however, nor could I find as many data points about as I did on the Personal line. You can check it out for yourself here [amazon.com]
