For those who like to travel light, this tiny towel is great for stashing in your bag when you go training or head to a race.
It’s made from a special microfibre material that absorbs water effectively but won’t cling onto it, so it dries quickly. Better still, there’s no need to dry it out completely – just stuff it straight back in the carry case that comes with it.
Because of the smooth, slightly rubbery texture, it feels a bit odd, though it’s very soft and not uncomfortable.
Despite the strange texture and its miniscule size it does a really effective job of drying. It’s also designed to be tearproof so should survive any rough encounters in transition.
