travel towel

Travel Towel, highest quality | Travel Ideology

Highest Quality Travel Towel

Highest quality travel towel. A Travel Ideology travel towel is made with highest quality high thread count viscose microfibers at 80% polyester and 20% polyamide for the best combination of compactness, near weightlessness, extreme drying ability, high absorbency, silky softness and high durability.

Here are some great benefits of a Travel Ideology highest quality microfiber Towel:

Highest Quality

Unlike many other leading microfiber towels, even when you pull the towel from the ends and hold it to the light, you will not be able to see through it. This is because of the high quality, the close weave and high thread count. It is light, soft and thirsty.


Small size! It is a fraction ( one fifth the size) of the size of a conventional towel and takes up next to no space in your travel pack.


Lightweight! It is much lighter compared to that of standard sized towels and even lighter than other microfiber towels.

Quick Drying

Fast drying! It dries up to 10 times quicker than bathroom towels, so it is ready to reuse again quicker than your standard towel.

Super Absorbent

It can hold up to 8 times its own weight in water and wring out, to dry even more. This is just what you want when travelling. Wick away the moisture and then dry quickly.

Extremely Hygienic

It is treated with silver ions (not the reportedly harmful silver nano particle treatment). Our treatment helps to prevent the development of unpleasant odours, germs, mould and bacteria. It keeps the towel fresh and hygienic for longer. No pong, no smells. Come up smelling of roses with the best travel towel available.

Strong and Durable

It will outlast your conventional towels and other microfiber towels many times. Our towel will last 10 times longer than a conventional one if looked after. This is a long lasting towel that you can keep using for a lifetime of adventures.

Soft on the skin

It has a super soft high suede finish so it is soft on the skin. Unlike a normal bathroom towel, it pulls the water from the skin. This feels a little strange at first but you will never look back.

Machine washable

Just throw it in the washing machine and wash in cold water. See washing instructions below.

Easy to hang

Your towel has a convenient loop for hanging it from a door or wall. This prevents it from falling to the dirty floor.

Two Colours

Available in a lime green or bright blue.

Handy Sizes

Your travel towel comes in 4 handy sizes

  • Small 40 x 40 cm (no mesh bag)
  • Medium 55 x 110cm (no mesh bag)
  • Large 80 x 130cm (with mesh bag)
  • Extra Large 90 x 180cm (with mesh bag)

The two larger size towels come with a stylish mesh bag to protect on the trip.

Our largest travel towel can wrap around like a conventional towel.

Won’t shrink or stretch

The Travel Ideology towel will remain the same size without any tendency to shrink or stretch as with some other materials.

No wrinkles

Unlike other materials, it does not wrinkle.

Protected edge

It has a protected edge to ensure that the edge does not fray or tear.

Lifetime warranty

If you are not satisfied with our highest quality travel towel, send back the towel and we will give you a full refund.

Lower cost

It is considerably cheaper than many competitors’ offerings of similar or lower standard. This represents much better value for you.

In every way it is the highest quality microfiber personal drying product you will find.

Washing instructions

  • Wash separately
  • Do not use fabric softeners
  • Do not use bleach

Drying instructions

  • Dry in sun or use lowest heat setting on dryer

An extract from Douglas Adam’s Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy explains

A towel, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth lie on it sleep under ityou can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.”

A Travel Ideology Highest Quality Travel Towel is an even more massively useful thing and you won’t even need to travel to the far reaches of the universe to appreciate it!

Why I need a first aid kit?

When accidents happen and you are in the middle of nowhere or in a country where it is difficult to communicate due to language issues, you want to be able to get yourself out of trouble at least until you can see a doctor.

What should I take?

There is balance here between buying and carting around whole pharmacy and packing light. You need to make sure that you have enough to get yourself out of trouble.

So what do I need and why?

Antiseptic powder 12.5g (1)

When you travel in hot humid climates, there is a higher chance of tropical ulcers and antiseptic creams and liquids will just not stay put long enough to do any good. The powder absorbs the liquid and kills a wide range of germs, including bacteria, viruses, fungi and simple organisms and is used as an antiseptic for the treatment and prevention of infection in minor skin trauma including burns, cuts and other minor injuries.

Bandage clip (1)

This is the easiest way to hold a bandage in place.

Bandaid (10)

These fix small cuts and abrasions which will undoubtedly happen over a long period of travel. Cuts and abrasions are the most common form of injury. Band aids can also be used for helping with blisters.

Burn aid sachet 3.5g (2)

Burnaid is for minor burns, scalds and sunburn. It provides antiseptic cooling that cools and soothes and helps relieve pain.

Cotton tips (10)

Cotton tips and for cleansing, removal of debris and for applying ointments and hydrogen peroxide.

Crepe bandage 10cm x 4 m (1)

For when you have something a bit bigger than a cut, basic crepe bandages are useful for keeping small dressings clean and in place until you can get some medical attention.

Gauze pieces 7.5cm x 7.5cm (3)

Use it to apply pressure to a wound, clean an injury, soak up blood, help stop bleeding, and even form part of a basic dressing for small-to-medium wounds. The best type of gauze to carry in a first aid kit is individually wrapped sterile squares. This eliminates the need to cut them to size when you need them quickly and obviously makes it easier to keep the wound clean and sterile.

Heavy weight conforming bandage 10cm x 4m (1)

These are for larger injuries.

Hydralyte (3 satchels)

When you vomit, you lose essential salts. This will rehydrate you quickly.

Ibuprofen (20 tablets)

This helps with pain relief.

Instant cold pack small 80g (1)

To control and alleviate the gore and pain caused by strain, bruise, pull and burn, also can rapidly remove the pain and discomfort induced by fever, headache, toothache, mosquito bite

Itch relief cream sachet (1)

Relief from insect bites, tree scratches, etc

Micropore adhesive tape 1.25cm wide x 9 m (1)

Surgical tape is one of those essential emergency items for when you need to apply and secure gauze or a bandage to a wound, although plasters can do the same job if need be. It can be handy in other situations as well.

Needle (1)

Used for extracting splinters, ticks, etc.

Safety pins (3)

Used to attach bandages

Saline ampules (2)

You can use sterile saline solution to wash out eyes and clean cuts & grazes.

Scissors (1)

Useful for trimming gauze or bandages to size. Just be careful if you do carry scissors to ensure that your first aid kit goes in your checked bag when you are in transit or else airline security will take them off you.

Small spray bottle 6% hydrogen peroxide (1)

This is a great way to clean cuts.

Strepsils (6)

These aid with sore throat.

Thermal blanket (1)

Used to prevent/counter hypothermia.

Thermometer (1)

Used for checking temperature.

Tweezers (1)

Useful for pulling out splinters, getting out little bits of stone or dirt when cleaning a wound.

Wound closure strips (5)

Used to attach bandages.


Dimensions of kit: 21cm x 15cm x 7cm
