Airlite Towel

THE LIGHTEST, FASTEST DRYING, MOST COMPACT TOWEL WE MAKE

$9.95 – $21.95

Sleeping Bag Temperature Ratings Explained

The EN Rating scale is a scientific test to determine the warmth of a sleeping bag. The test produces a Lower rating (for male sleepers) and a Comfort rating (for female sleepers). Both are listed in the features table on the product page.

A unisex sleeping bag with a Lower limit of 23ºF means a man should be comfortable down to air temperatures of 23ºF. The same bag will also have a Comfort limit, in the realm of 32°F, so a woman would be comfortable down to an air temperature of 32ºF. These ratings require a sleeping mat with an R-Value appropriate for expected ground temperatures – without this, the sleeping bag itself is unlikely to keep the sleeper warm enough.

A variety of factors impact sleeping bag warmth - the above temperatures are merely guidelines, not guarantees. It’s important to think of a sleeping bag, an appropriately insulating sleeping pad and a liner as a sleep system. For example - if you plan on sleeping in nighttime air temperatures of 27ºF / -3°C, choose a bag with a gender-appropriate rating of 23°F / -5°C, plus a sleeping mat with an R-Value of 2.5 to 3, and consider a Reactor thermal liner.

Does the AirLite Towel…?

  • Have a hangtag for quick drying? Yes. The storage sack has a snap closure and webbing loop – when hanging the towel to dry, simply reconnect the stuff sack and hang the towel from the webbing strap.

  • Need special care when being washed? Our Microfiber Towels are not colorfast dyed, so wash them separately for the first few washes. Avoid fabric softener, which will reduce absorbency.

  • Have an anti-microbial finish? No. A towel that is this easy to wash and dry doesn’t need chemical treatments to keep it fresh.

Which size should I choose?

  • Small: Facecloth
  • Medium: Small hand towel
  • Large: Small bath towel
  • X-Large: Bath towel

FEATURES

  • Tiny packed size
  • Whisper light, yet silky soft and durable
  • Knitted technical fabric: ultra-absorbent and remarkably fast drying
  • Comes in an ultralight stuff sack that doubles as a hang loop
  • Machine washable

Technical Features

Microfibre

Sea to Summit’s Towels is made of knitted microfiber fabric.

In the AirLite and Pocket Towels, this fiber is 100% Polyester.

In the DryLite and Tek Towels, the fiber is a blend of 70% Polyester and 30% Polyamide (Nylon).

The four types of towels have different weights and finish to ensure that you can dry off no matter where you are. The AirLite Towel is made of a featherweight material and is incredibly compact. The Pocket Towel is super-light and has the silkiest finish. The Drylite Towel is a medium weight and has an ultra-suede-like finish. The Tek Towel is the heaviest and most absorbent and has a terry loop-like finish, like most normal towels.
