An absolute necessity at camp, you want your child to bring a towel they can dry off with quickly and thoroughly for the duration of their summer stay! Your natural instinct may be to go with an ordinary, bulky cotton towel (probably like the ones in your bathroom at home). And that will certainly get your camper by for their summer stay. But a towel like this has its disadvantages in the summer camp setting such as eating up space and not remaining the most fresh.
PackTowl, on the other hand, doesn’t make just any typical towel. Yes, they are higher-priced than your basic cotton towel, but you don’t want to skimp when it comes to your child’s camp stay. Read on to learn how PackTowl’s Luxe Towels are extraordinary products and worth every penny.
Did you know that, before the 1800s, towels were only found in the closets of the rich and royalty? They used to be much more expensive before the Industrial Revolution when they were all handwoven. The advent of large textile machines, however, brought the means of mass production in a short amount of time, making cotton towels much more affordable. They quickly became a part of our everyday lives and a commonplace item found in every household.
PackTowl is here to revolutionize the towel by making it out of an ultra-soft fabric that’s easy to wring out and dries unbelievably fast—30% faster than cotton. Perfect for camp! The Luxe is also lightweight and amazingly absorbent. Camp packing lists typically want you bringing four shower towels and two beach towels. PackTowl towels, however, dry so quickly that you could get away with bringing fewer along!
When your average towel comes back from camp, best case scenario: it becomes a rag towel. But PackTowl Luxe isn’t your average towel. It’s made with built-in sand and dirt-repellency; just a few good shakes and this towel shrugs it all off! It’s guaranteed to survive multiple camp outings from one season to the next for many years to come.
What IS Microfiber
The fibers of this fabric are thinner than silk! Tightly woven together, they create microfiber: a polyester and nylon blend that’s extra lightweight and extra soft! It actually came about in an attempt to create a cheaper alternative to natural fibers like cotton. Instead, it’s evolved into a material that’s even more desired. After all, it’s soft, light, sleek, water-resistant, and stain-resistant.
Superior to Cotton
Storage space is at a premium when you’re packing for camp. This towel is nearly paper-thin and proud of it too—not at all like your everyday bulky cotton bathroom set. But don’t let this lean physique fool you! This towel incredibly absorbs FIVE TIMES its weight in water!
PackTowl constructs their towels with odor-control technology called Polygeine®. This technology utilizes ions from silver which have a positive charge. These ions have been shown to be a powerful weapon against microbes. Where cotton will start getting that gross, sour smell, this towel will remain smelling fresh after days of use—very forgiving to life at camp!
Tailored to the camping world, these towels are made with durable construction and high-quality stitching. They even feature a Hanging Loop in one corner and they come with a Zippered Storage Pouch for packing convenience. When all rolled up, this towel is no bigger than a 32oz water bottle! They’re great for camp, but these towels would make a great set in your home as well. They also work great for drying off after swimming, playing sports, and participating in after-school activities. Bring them to the gym, the pool, the beach…wherever you need to dry off!
