What's the one essential item you need to be a world traveler, an explorer, or a digital nomad?
Survival guides might tell you it's a penknife, a compass, a flashlight. But what you actually need, more than anything else, is a travel towel.
What Is a Travel Towel?
A travel towel is not the bulky, snuggly, ten-pound blanket your mom used to wrap you in when you got out of the bathtub.
The best travel towel is something altogether more sleek, modern, and light. In fact, it's ultralight - just one pound in weight, but don't let that fool you. These are high-performance travel accessories that won't let you down.
What Is It Made From?
The crucial innovation that makes a travel towel exceptional is what it is made from. Most use a microfiber blend to provide ultra-absorbency & give the towel its lightweight ability. Nomadix’s Ultralight travel towels use a blend called MicroSuede, which makes the towels super absorbent, quick-drying, and ultralight. Plus, their towels are made from post-consumer recycled plastics.
Light, but Packs a Punch
Let's talk absorbency. With the ability to absorb 4x its weight in water, travel towels will leave you squeaky clean and dry. After you've enjoyed the ocean and toweled off, you don't want to wait hours for a towel to dry. Every Nomadix towel wrings out super-easily and dries quickly while hanging. After it’s dry, pack it away, and you're ready for your next adventure.
Speaking of packing, this beauty is not going to take up half your backpack. It folds down to 1/3 the size of a conventional towel. With a stuff sack included, you can squeeze it into the smallest of nooks, giving you more space for other essentials.
Saving Water in More Ways than One
The average American uses 82 gallons of water per day at home. But we know that there's nothing average about you. You care about water conservation and pollution just as much as we do.
The best travel beach towel doesn't just look great; it does its bit for the planet. And that doesn't start and end with what it's made from. During its manufacturing process, Nomadix keeps a careful eye on water usage. They print all their towels so harmful dyes don't leach into our water systems.
Because Nomadix travel towels are quick-dry, bacteria barely gets a look in so they are funk-resistant, meaning you don’t have to wash them as often, saving water for the planet.
Leave Sand on the Beach
Sand is great. Sand is fun. Sand is a complete nightmare when it's anywhere but on the beach. When you take a traditional cotton towel to the beach, sand gets stuck in the fibers, but most travel towels are built to be sand-resistant. Sand just glides right off so you don’t have to worry about taking the sand from the beach and into your beach bag.
