Our lightest, most compact pack towel is the ideal choice for those who pack light. This soft, absorbent, and remarkably lightweight towel fits in your pack when space is tight, so you're always ready for fun on the fly. The exceptionally soft and smooth microsuede texture is perfect for drying skin around faces and hands, wiping off glasses and ski goggles, and keeping the sweat out of your eyes. Great for drying off after visiting alpine lakes and remote beaches, the MicroDry towel is a great choice for anyone who wants to play in the water without lugging a wet cotton towel around.
The MicroDry Towel comes in a variety of sizes to meet any utility need, from cleaning cookware at camp, to wiping down the outside of your wet tent, to mopping up water in your boat. It's also perfect for traveling, camping, and water sports as it is for everyday trail runs and gym workouts. Mesh stuff sack included.
Great little towel for the price. It is well made and seems very durable. It performs as advertised. It actually holds quite a bit of water, yet if you squeeze it out, it dries quickly. It is reasonably soft to the touch and comfortable to use.
It packs light and is almost unnoticeable in a pack or even a cargo pocket.
If it were slightly thicker it would feel more substantial, though it does a great job as it is.
I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

I have the size small microdry towel. Ive used the towel several times and its as good if not better than my pack towel by cascade designs. Its soft, absorbent, and packs up very small and compact package. It seems to dry in about the same time it takes comparable towels. The small size is a little small to be a body towel but it does the trick. It is sized right to be a good face cloth or handy to wipe up any moisture in the tent. I liked the mesh stuff sack it came with. Thinking of buying a variety of sizes, good value for the price.
I have the medium size and it's super compact-able. I was surprised by how absorbent the towel is given the microfiber material, but it does it's job well! It folds down easily and is small enough that I can take it to the crag or out camping and not worry about extra weight or losing space in my pack. It'll be perfect for quick drying after washing hands or cooling down in streams outdoors. Only downside is mine came with some fibers pulling out already and littles fuzzies, but I'm not too concerned about those and think the towel will hold up well. Best part is I can throw it in the washer and dryer too!

My Fox Outfitters microDry Towel arrived in the mail and I waisted no time to use it. I got the SMALL size which is 16"× 32". The gray color microDry fabric is soft to the touch and the tight threaded finished edge that frames the towel is surprisingly soft. It is super light weight and folds up easily to fit into its velcro storage bag. I have used it for multiple functions. It is an ample size for a bath towel or a dish towel and super absorbent. Just simply wring out the moisture for fast drying and reuse. The clever looped tag at the corner of the towel makes a great hanger for drying and the Tag states to machine wash and tumble dry which I did. Seems to be durable enough to withstand many washes. This towel is a must have addition to any household or camping trip.
After recieving my microdry towel in the mail, which I originally intended to try out and use when I go camping, my head started getting some great ideas for this towel. I immediately released the potential this micro fiber cloth has. It's the medium sized on I got is plenty big enough for more then just camping. I've already used it around the house a few times and even on my motorcycle! For those who ride and have experienced rising in the rain with a full helmet, finding the right cloth to wipe your visor down makes the difference between clean, smears, or scratches. I look forward to actually trying it out camping when it starts to warm up here this spring.
I'm more then pleased with this towel. I'll deffinately be reffering these to friends and family. I'll even probably pick up a few more for me to keep at the apartment, shop, and in my bags.

I'll start off by saying I really like the size of the towel that I have. It is 4 foot long and a slight weight. I used it on a day hike, very wet and rainy day hike I might add and it worked well to dry off my feet and a couple of my friends feet after A River Crossing. It has a small loop with a snap, so you can hang it to your backpack and have it at arms length for when you need it. I have also used this towel at the gym for showering and it worked well in drying me off as well as not being soaking wet for when I put it into my bag after I left the gym. My only negative is in the texture and softness on my skin. It in no way is painful or irritating to the skin, but I have a sea to summit towel that I have to compare it too and I prefer the texture of the STS. I'm looking forward to a longer trip I'm taking on the trail in June, I'll be doing some swimming and I'm excited to have a nice size towel to dry off with!

Being an avid outdoorsman, I am always looking for products which may be of use. I always look for 1.) Quality and 2.) Pack Size. This towel meets the standards for both of these items!
I opted for the Large size towel, 24x48" and green in color. The towel comes in a nice little mesh carry pouch with the FOX Outfitters logo on the velcro flap. The mesh allows the towel to breathe, which is a must if you are backpacking, camping, fishing, etc. and cannot allow the towel to fully dry before packing away.
The towel is of high quality, high absorbency material. The stitching in the towel is very good and tight. The manufacturer claims that the towel will soak up to 4 times the weight in liquid. We put this towel to the test on a cookie sheet. We poured a thin layer of water, and the towel soaked it up without any problems. Added a bit more water, and the same. Squeeze the water out and you are ready to go again.
The towel has a button snap loop on it, great for attaching to tables, chairs, clotheslines, belt loop, etc. This is a nice added feature.
Be sure to follow directions, and wash the towel and tumble dry alone prior to first use.
If you are looking for a good all around towel, I highly recommend this one. I will be purchasing a couple more, one for our camper and one for my backpack.
Very compact design makes for easy storage
Compacts to about 3 slices of bread in my hand
Blotted myself dry after a shower - works fine.
Medium size is listed as 20x40 inches, but I measured it true at 19x38. Not critical, but they need to update.

Fox Outfitters MicroDry Towel gets 5 stars in my book!
The quality is solid... literally hung from a tree with the medium. It dries insanely fast.
Comes with a super cool little bag which makes storage and clipping to the outside of your pack or gear box easy and hands free. Easy to wash and keep clean, doesn't lose its effectiveness like I've experienced with a shamwow and other products. Thought I would give it a try at the car wash as well... worked awesome! Dried the entire truck with the medium. Once it was completely saturated... easy to wring out and soaks up just as much water as the first run-by! I have a few friends that have seen me with mine and have since picked up their own. The product speaks for itself.
