A handy item for your next bike tour: Lightload Towels
These aren’t the towels you will want to take to the shower but they weigh almost nothing, take no space, and are very handy. I like them a lot more than I ever though I would, they work fine as a face towel, cleaning up pots, as a cloth to take the water off your bike in the morning or a rag to deal with bike grime and grease.
They are quite absorbent, sturdy and fairly soft but pretty thin for a towel. One neat thing about them is they are about the size of a thick wooden half dollar when you get them. They easily uncompressed when you need them.
The Lightload Towel price at Campmor is $5.49 for 3.
