Speedo Sports Towel

$16, Speedousa.com
The draw: Compact size

This absorbent swimmer’s towel is made of watershed chamois. It is lightweight, quick drying and easy to travel with. Keep one rolled up and slightly damp within the plastic case in your swim locker or bag if you don’t want to deal with a wet cotton towel after a swim.
