New prints for 2016: Our handiest, most compact quick-drying towel, the Nano is surprisingly versatile. The smooth texture is perfect for drying faces and hands, wiping off glasses and ski goggles, and keeping the sweat out of your eyes when worn as a headband. The ultra-compact design means you can throw one in a pocket, or even clip to your backpack, for any situation where a little absorbency goes a long way.
- Ultra-compact: Featherlight microfiber fabric and handy, “just-right” size let you fold down the Nano into a tiny bundle for carry-anywhere versatility.
- 2x Absorbency: Absorbent fabric soaks up 2 times its weight in water, which can be wrung out easily.
- Ultrafast-drying: Dries over 90% faster than cotton.
- Carabiner clip and mesh storage pouch included for easy drying and packing.
- Machine washable

How do I wash my PackTowl® towel?
We recommend that you wash your PackTowl before first use. All PackTowl towels are machine washable. Wash in cold water with like colors. Do not use bleach or iron. Do not use fabric softener. Air dry or tumble dry on low. Dry thoroughly before storing for long periods of time.
Why do I need to wash my PackTowl towel before first use?
Due to manufacturing processes, materials, and dyes used, it is possible that a small amount of dye might bleed from a PackTowl towel. This is why we recommend that you wash your PackTowl towel with like colors before first using it.
My PackTowl Original towel shrank slightly when I first washed it. Is it defective?
Your Original towel is not defective. Because we use viscose fabric in our Original towels, it is natural that they will shrink slightly in the first wash. Washing the PackTowl Original will improve its water absorbency and softness.
How do I compost my PackTowl Original towel?
A PackTowl Original towel can be composted, though because the fabric requires specific conditions to decompose as part of a composting process, we recommend composting it with an industrial composting service (note: the hang loop and snap are not compostable—remove before composting; do not attempt to compost an Original towel in a back yard compost).
What does “odor control” mean?
With our Personal and Luxe towels, we use Polygiene® odor control treatment to combat the development of odors caused by microbes such as bacteria, fungus, and mildew. Polygiene is based on silver salt (silver chloride) produced from recycled silver, and has a low environmental impact in comparison to other odor-controlling treatments. Because the treatment is integrated into the fabric, it won’t wash out. More information about Polygiene can be found on their website.
What is microfiber fabric?
Microfiber fabric is made from a very fine synthetic yarn (smaller than the diameter of a strand of silk). Instead of having the typical round shape of natural fibers, these very fine synthetic yarns are shaped to have more overall surface area than round natural fibers, which increases their ability to attract and retain water molecules—this is what allows microfiber fabric to “absorb” moisture much more effectively than cotton, as well as dry quicker. It also helps make it very soft.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Very light and absorbent
Brought it with me while traveling to Japan and it was very useful and compact. I wish they also had large body towels made with the same fabric, it would be wonderful and I'd definitly buy one!

I started using this product earlier this year and love that it works as a headband and a towel! It clips to your pack so it can dry off while you're hiking. Great product.
