What are the benefits of a quick dry towel? The benefits are numerous, that's why us travelers love them. They are lightweight & absorbent, yet dry extra quick. Folding up really compact, will take up minimal space in any bag and won't hold those bad smells like a cotton towel. Best of all, the sand won't stick and it shakes right off! On top of that, our towels and pouches look great wherever you take them!
