Putting those normal bath towels you use at home on your packing lists is a big no-no. Being big, bulky, and slow to dry makes them terrible for travel. The last thing you want to do is have to pack up a wet towel into your luggage because, on arrival, there’s bound to be a musty stench to deal with. Yuck.
To combat this problem, travelers typically recommended the pack towel, but that option also has its downsides. Most are barely big enough to wrap around your body, some tend to pick up a musty scent after so many uses, and the feeling of the shammy-like material on your skin isn’t always smooth.
But, we thought this was the best option, until…
The Peshtemals came out.
So let’s take a look at why Peshtemal towels are perfect for travel:
- They’re thin. Even though they are cotton, they dry fairly quickly.
- They actually cover you up. The size is not comparable to pack towels, but since the material is thin, they still pack up small.
- They’re soft on your skin. Unlike the sticky feeling of other pack towels, like the old faithful towels from Nepal, the Turkish towel pat down more like a normal towel given the fluffy thread of Turkish cotton.
- Absorbency is high. All thanks to Turkish cotton.
All being said, they are especially great for beach vacations, no more lugging around 20 pound soaking wet towels! Time to pack-up these goodies and get to your dream destination. Bon Voyage!.
