Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Absorbant? Yes, I had a shower with it. Got it saturated, squeezed out the water, then wiped my wet arm down and my skin was 90% dry. Has great absorbing power even after being saturated. My only gripe with this is that 2 shower-ringing and 2 sink-soaking sessions later, there is still a lot of green dye coming out. Way too much dye or something...Not sure how many washes it's going to take until I can actually throw it in the wash with normal clothes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Absorbant I have been searching for a good travel towel for the past six months. It seemed like every towel had its down side (too big, too small, falls apart quickly, smells weird) Though I was hesitant at first I decided to take my chances and purchase it. The REI Multi-towel is surprisingly soft and absorbant. It takes about 20 seconds to dry my entire body and doesn't drag or stick to my body like other non-cotton towels. I chose the XL because I wanted something large enough to wrap my body with. I also purchased a L to wrap my hair in. This product is great and will be used on my upcoming Euro-trip.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dirt magnet Bought for daughter for camp in BWCA. Dries quickly- big plus. But EVERYTHING sticks to it- dirt, needles, grass. Downer for something you want to be clean to dry your body off. Even when washed & dried, still is still imbedded in the material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get dry on the trail I have had REI pack towels in the past and they have been pretty amazing. This type is nice because there is a little more fluff to them. they dry quickly and pack nice and small. It is easy to fit in a pack and hike 20 miles with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just about perfect I liked this. It does feel like it's not one piece of cloth but two sewn together, back-to-back. When you dry yourself, the side on your body kind of sticks to dry you while the other side moves as you rub the towel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly absorbent, worthwhile use of limited space Took this as my only towel on a multi-day cycling tour during which we stayed at hostels and other places where you needed your own towel. It dries you quickly and dries out quickly as well (hanging overnight on a bed rail did the trick for us). Don't expect it to have the same skin feel as a regular towel, but it will do the job well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great travel and camp towel Bought this towel for traveling overseas with my backpack. Needed a lightweight towel. Its been one of the best things i've purchased for my trip and for future use in backpacking. I recommend this to anyone looking for a lightweight, compact, absorbent towel that doesn't compromise in size either.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pack towel Towel smells chemical, had to wash 3 times steam wash, color still coming out Purchased for my husband who wanted a bigger towel than "adventure towel", lighter weight ones for backpacking, I would not suggest buying except for car camping, if you have a steam washer and time on your hands!

What is the difference between item 832935 (the lite version) and this item (MultiTowel X Large Towel)?

Asked by: blue skies
The MultiTowel X Large Towel is made from a heavier fabric compared to the MultiTowel lite model.
