PackTowl® Unveils Lightweight, Quick-Dry RobeTowl™ for Smart Traveling

Just in time for the holiday season, PackTowl today announced the fall release of the new RobeTowl, a robe and towel in one. Made of PackTowl’s ultra-soft, quick-drying and super-absorbent Personal fabric, it’s the perfect two-in-one accessory. It serves as both a robe and a towel any time a little extra privacy and warmth is needed while drying off.

The incredibly unique RobeTowl is the perfect solution for any travel, outdoor or fitness activity when a towel is needed but the convenience and privacy of a robe is also desired. Each calf-length, full-sleeved robe is lightweight, antimicrobial, and machine washable, and will soak up four times its weight in water then wring out almost completely dry.

“Everyone loves the practicality of the RobeTowl,” said Darren Pinne, director of PackTowl. “It’s super absorbent, wind-resistant, comfortable, and makes great sense for travel and water-related activities. It’s also a great gift item, especially for students heading off to college, travelers who will be staying in hostels, paddlers, swimmers, or anyone who could use a compact-packing towel and robe in one.”

Each RobeTowl is available in three sizes and colors: stone, sky blue, and currant, and features a generous hood, waist tie, and two deep, carry-everything front pockets large enough to hold one-liter bottles.

The RobeTowl will be shown at the Outdoor Retail Summer Market in Salt Lake City, Utah. The product will be available for purchase online and at retail stores this fall, 2013.
