Known as the backpacker's best friend, Lava Linens' smallest towel is not to be underestimated. This towel gives you the advantage as it's up to 50% more absorbent than microfiber per square inch and more durable. Dry more, do more, and be prepared for whatever is around the next bend.
Get wet, sweaty, and dirty when you feel the impulse knowing you’ll be able to get clean and dry when it matters. Then, pack it up wet or hang it to dry - no need to worry about it getting stinky because the Lava Mini is naturally antimicrobial.

"It's the perfect towel for eco-conscious adventurers who demand premium gear that is gentle on the Earth."
In preparation for a backpacking trip, Mary sought a travel towel that would last the entire year, require minimal space in her pack, dry quickly, and stay odor-free. She soon discovered that linen, from the flax plant, was the perfect material—it's quick to dry, highly absorbent, antimicrobial, and ultra-durable.
Mary loved her linen towel so much, in fact, that after only one month of traveling, she invited her mom and sister along on the journey to bring Lava Linens to fruition.
