Discovery Trekking Outfitters

I have not heard of Discovery Trekking Outfitters before I received one of their fast-drying towels. What amazed me was the size. As you can see it is almost 1/3 the thickness of a standard swimming towel and this is a large-sized towel! Discovery Trekking also offers a medium, small and extra small-sized towel available in a dozen different colors.

How Does It Do It?

Discovery Trekking OutfittersDiscovery Trekking’s Ultra Fast-Dry Towels are ultra-lightweight and are made with a special style of Polartec® Power Dry®. “Touchpoints” on the fabric’s inner surface literally suck moisture around the fibers, where it spreads for rapid evaporation. Polartec® Power Dry® fabrics move at least 30% more moisture away from the skin than single-component fabrics. When the moisture reaches the outside of the fabric, it spreads out to many times its original surface area, enabling it to dry many times faster than other fabrics.

Discovery Trekking OutfittersWhen I first saw this, I thought it would be great for my son who goes on a lot of campouts. I loved the idea that it could fold up as small as it does, something he needs to save on space in his backpack. We have been using this for a few months now and we both like it. It does not feel like a regular towel though, it has a stretchy feel. It might not look absorbant but let me tell you that it is! We have not only used it for a boy scout campout but at the pool.  This towel dries three times faster than a cotton towel! After many washes, it still is super absorbent and the color has not faded.

What More Great Benefits?

  1. Moisture Wicking: moisture-management material pulls moisture from your skin so you dry faster
  2. Quick-drying: high-tech fabric distributes moisture over the towel to promote rapid evaporation 
  3. Antimicrobial: recycled Silver in towel fibers prevents bacteria-growth, keeping the towel fresh-smelling
  4. UV Protective: towel blocks up to 93% of UV rays
  5. Lightweight: thinner than cotton towels, the largest size weighs less than 9 oz. or 0.3 kg

    I love technology! I am going to buy a few of these because we go to the pool indoors in Illinois during the cold months for reprieve and exercise, but when my son uses the towel once, it is wet the rest of the time we are there with no sun to help it dry. This is absolutely perfect!! Thank you for finding new and cool things for us!

    This sounds awesome! Since I reenact, there are plenty of times that we get rained on, and this towel would be perfect to stow away until we need it!

    This towel is really interesting. When I first saw your pictures, I thought the towel looked like a winter blanket or a thinner heating blanket. It’s amazing how much thinner it is than your standard towel. I think this towel would be great for us because we have a pool in our backyard and when we have people over, an assortment of wet towels quickly piles up. I also really like that these towels block up to 93% of UV rays. That is awesome!
