This is just what the world adventurer and traveler needs. I think the lightload Beach Towels www.ultralighttowels.com are neat. They really take up little space and can be used for so much like a bug repellent, first aid supplement, sun bloc and much more. They are wind scarves in winter or cool weather(they wick away the water). I know they don’t last forever but that is the beauty of it, a biodegradable towel.
