The Discovery Trekking Outfitters Ultra-Fast Dry Towel is great for use at the pool, beach, campgrounds, or anywhere else that requires a quick dry time and lightweight feel.
How the Ultra-Fast Dry Towel Works
The Discovery Trekking Outfitter Towel features moisture-management fabric that effectively wicks water away from a wet surface. As soon as the moisture reaches the fabric, it immediately begins to disperse to many times its original surface area. This action allows the absorbed water to dry at exceptionally high rates. The quick wicking towel can dry you, or anything else, off quickly and won’t get bogged down with excess water like traditional terry cloth towels. The Ultra-Fast Dry Towel’s quick drying ability also gives the product a unique, cooling feature. Because the water evaporates so quickly, the towel remains cool to the touch and can be used as relief on a hot day. The DTO towel features similar, quick-drying material as the Sammy Cool-n-Dry Towel. Made from chamois, this absorbent towel soaks up water on contact for a dry, cooling effect.
Compact and Lightweight
The Ultra-Fast Dry Towel is much lighter than traditional cotton towels its own size. Because the DTO towel is so compact and lightweight, it can be thrown in any bag and taken along with you wherever you need to go. Toss one in a multi-purpose bag, like the Water Gear Elite Backpack, which features specialized compartments to store and dry all your equipment. And if you’re thinking about using the Ultra-Fast Dry Towel around the campgrounds, be sure to pack some safety equipment along with the quick drying towel. Try the Dresnick Healthcare Personal Readiness Kit. It’s a compact first aid kit that features over-the-counter painkillers, sunscreen, bug repellent, hand sanitizer, gauze, and rain poncho. It’s ideal for camping or just great to have on hand in your car or gear bag in case of minor emergencies.
The quick drying towel is available in a 34x58” size. It weighs about 10 oz and comes in colors such as aqua, dark green, purple, red and royal blue. One of the most unique features of the towels is their ability to avoid bacterial growth. The towel’s composition features small amounts of recycled silver, which inhibits bacterial growth and keeps the towel smelling fresh. The wicking towel also blocks up to 93% of UV rays, making it a must on sunny days.
The AquaGear Opinion
It was easy for the AquaGear testers to give their opinion about these Ultra-Fast Dry Towels; they all already own and use them on a regular basis! The Discovery Trekking Outfitters product is a staple around the AquaGear pool. They are loved because they’re easy to pack (can roll up into a much smaller, compact size) and because they wick away moisture quickly and easily. Testers have found ways to utilize the towels on a daily basis and are sure that your own Ultra-Fast Dry Towel will come in handy as well.
The Bottom Line
If you’re planning to be around water, or someplace that requires a towel for clean up, then plan on bringing a Discovery Trekking Outfitters Ultra-Fast Dry Towel along for the trip.
