Best Lightweight Bath Towels

Updated on October 1, 2014

Quick Drying Bath Towels That Are Absorbent Too

The best lightweight bath towels are absorbent and dry quickly. Consider a light towel next time you need to replace your bath towels.

Sometimes you just don't need a big, fluffy bath towel. If you're traveling or camping, for instance, and can't fit a big, full size towel in your bag or backpack, a lightweight towel or two is just the ticket.

Some of the lightweight bath towels I found are thin but so absorbent! Don't let their "unfluffiness" deceive you!

Benefits of Using Lightweight Bath Towels

ideal for packing.

~ They dry quickly making them convenient

and energy efficient.

Don't let the size and look of these towels fool you. They may be compact compared with your typical big, fluffy towels, but they absorb like nobody's business!

Choose a couple of lightweight towels if you have limited storage space or need to pack them on your travels.

Air Dry Towels

One of the benefits of using lightweight towels

is how fast they dry.

If you're trying to reduce your carbon footprint,

consider replacing old towels when needed

with lighter weight versions. They will air dry faster

and stay fresher in between laundering.

After you wash them, hang them to dry instead of using the dryer for even more energy savings.

A microfiber hair towel is lightweight and absorbent. I use a similar hair turban and my hair is nearly dry after just a bit of air drying.
