How will my Páramo Expedition Towel outperform other travel towels?

Cotton towels are not practical for many travel and expedition activities as they are heavy when wet and slow to dry out.

Many travel towels on offer are unable to offer a cosy, drying ‘experience’ – they end up hard and board-like, and can become smelly and unpleasant to use.

Using unique Parameta S fabric, the Páramo expedition towel is very effective at absorbing water from the skin, moving it away from you and letting it evaporate quickly and dry out speedily. However, the towel itself is soft and luxurious to use and to wrap around yourself.
