Learn how to pick and choose the best beach towels.

May 11, 2023

Ah, the age-old question: how to pick a travel towel? 

It's a dilemma that has stumped philosophers and laypeople alike. But never fear, dear reader, for we are here to solve this mystery once and for all. Allow us to share with you the definitive guide to picking the perfect beach towel.

The first step in choosing a travel towel is understanding what makes a travel towel different from a regular ol' bath towel. 

In short, it's all about portability

A regular bath towel is simply too large and unwieldy to carry around with you when traveling. 

A travel towel, on the other hand, is smaller and more compact, making it easy to pack in your suitcase or carry-on bag. But that's not to say that all travel towels are created equal. 

Here are a few things to keep in mind when shopping for a travel towel.

1. Size Matters 

As mentioned above, one of the most important things to consider when choosing a travel towel is (drumroll..) size. 

You'll want to make sure that the towel you select is small enough to pack easily and fit into any backpack or suitcase, but large enough to actually be useful. 

Our LulleVibes Eco Travel Towel™  is the perfect size for both function and portability. It measures in at a whopping 80cm x 160cm (32” x 64”), but takes up almost no space in your luggage. It’s also super absorbent making it ideal for everything: from drying off after a swim to wiping down your yoga mat. In terms of uses, sky's the limit.

2. Weight Matters Too

Another important aspect is weight. 

After all, you don't want your travel towel adding too much bulk or weight to your luggage. Look for a travel towel made from lightweight materials such as microfiber. These materials are not only light, but also extremely absorbent—a must-have quality in any good travel towel.

The LulleVibes Eco Travel Towel™ weighs less than 300 grams (0.66 pounds), which makes it incredibly easy to carry with you wherever you go. That’s less than a can of soda OR a pair of slippers for that matter.

3. Quick-Drying Materials Are Key

Living life on the edge? And on the go? Well, you might not always have time to wait for your wet towel to dry before packing it up again (read: “Ain’t nobody got time for that!”).

That's why it's crucial to look for a travel towel made from quick-drying fabrics such as microfiber. These materials will absorb moisture quickly, so you can get back to enjoying your adventure as soon as possible.

Our LulleVibes Eco Travel Towel™ is made from microfiber, which means it dries in a flash. This means you can use it again and again without having to worry about it getting musty or mildewed.


There you have it...all you need to know about picking out the perfect travel towel! Just remember: size, weight, and quick-drying fabrics are key things to look for. This way you'll be sure to find the perfect companion for your next adventure (no matter where it may take you).
