 Top Quick Drying Microfiber Towels for Camping and Backpacking

After a long day of camping and backpacking, what you want the most is to freshen up and bathe. Getting yourself fresh while on the outdoors may not be a problem these days since there are available public showers in camping parks, some streams, rivers, lakes, the beach (if you’re lucky to pass by one), or you can even bring a portable shower. Be sure to bring your toiletries as well. After that fresh splash, you need to dry yourself off so bringing a reliable towel is a must. Drying your regular towel, which is quite thick and fluffy, can take a long time, and storing it in a bag while still wet can make it smell awful if kept longer. Bringing a smaller cloth or towel, though, will take you too long to dry yourself and won’t completely do the job because of absorbing too much water. Drying yourself with your used shirt? Don’t even think about it.

You need not worry about drying yourself after taking a shower or a dip in the waters after a long day. Instead of bringing your regulars or using your shirt, there are a couple of microfiber towels used for bathing that is quick-drying and lightweight. Picking one for your trip boils down to what other things you would want in it and what you can tolerate.

Trim down your choices with our recommended top quick-drying microfiber towels for your camping and backpacking trip.
