    Are they all like this? I'd rather carry a medium sized normal towel than suffer the lacking performance of the microfibre versions I've tried. Are there microfibre ones out there that do work well?
    I've been using one of these for years; i don't know if the newer stuff is as good as the old one i have; but they do work well; and dry very quickly.

    Top Tip,
    carry a small face flannel to dry yourself first,wring it out when it gets wet and repeat,
    then dry yourself with your desired micro towel...
    Another,
    vaseline on/around rear exit,less scrapage = less squares = less weight....

    +1 for the Lifeventure towels. Remember to wash the carry pack too if you’ve put the towel away slightly damp.

    Head for Amazon and buy these... https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    They're super size, non scratchy, absorb water and feel great.

    Thanks for the headsup on the Bodhi towel. A great space saver that actually works.

    If I have to splosh vaseline around my 'rear exit' in order to go camping, then fuckit, I'm booking into the nearest hotel with at least 4 stars.
