Nikwax Travel Towel - Trek Size


Brand: Nikwax
  EAN 5020716956007
Weight: 165 g         7 reviews
The Nikwax Travel Towel is a compact, lightweight, low-bulk and fast-drying travel towel which is both soft and comfortable to use. Despite weighing less than half the weight of an equivalent size cotton towel, the Nikwax travel towel will dry twice as fast, making it the perfect piece of kit for lightweight camping, trekking, expeditions, holidays and adventures.

What sets this towel apart from the scores of other travel towels on the market today is its use of Parameta S fabric. This unique, reversible material (commonly found in Paramo clothing) consists of two different faces, quickly absorbing water from the soft, fleece side and directing it to to the smooth outer face. Normal cotton towels will 'hide' water in the centre of the fabric, therefore taking much longer to dry.

Benefits of using this product:
  • Half the weight of an equivalent size cotton towel
  • Low packing volume
  • Dries extra fast so can be re-packed shortly after use
  • Convenient drawstring carry bag makes packing and carrying quick and easy
  • Soft and comfortable

  • Size: 100 x 70 cm
  • Weight (without carry bag): 138 g
  • Weight (with carry bag): 165 g
  • Fabric: Parameta S Light
  • Machine washable with no loss in performance

  Very good towel, good sized and light. Compresses down to a very small volume.

  This is the best travel towel I have tried and I’ve tried a few. I tested it on a recent bushcraft course with Ray. Used it after a shower and hung it to dry which it did before the day was out. It doesn’t take up much room in the backpack and I would take this on all future trips.

  My previous trekking towels seem to pack heavy, but this one is compact and light, I like the material because it does not stick to my hands or feel uncomfortable. Ordered before 2 pm and delivered in the following morning. Superb service thanks.

  We go everywhere together, this towel is a trusted ally. Drys so fast and packs so small. A tremendous piece of essential kit.

  Have bought many so-called travel towels from high street shops over the years, but this is definitely the best. Soaks up water and dries nice and quick outdoors in the sun. Being the Trek size it is obviously smaller than your standard bath towel, but this isnt a problem when travelling. Highly recommended.
