Lifeventure unveils a new collection of colourful, high-performance SoftFibre Trek Towels.

Lifeventure logo

Lightweight, packable, absorbent and super soft; Lifeventure’s travel towels have been a favourite amongst outdoor enthusiasts for many years and in 2016, this essential accessory is about to get even better. Refreshed with a whole new range of colours, the iconic SoftFibre Trek Towels have also been upgraded with advanced Polygiene permanent odour control technology, providing greater performance and long-lasting freshness. 

Popular with campers, travellers and outdoor-enthusiasts alike, Lifeventure has divided its new range of SoftFibre Trek Towels into two product offerings, making it easy to tailor your towel to your adventure. For multi-day trips, camping holidays or backpacking, the slightly thicker SoftFibre Advance range comes complete with a breathable mesh and ripstop fabric case and is capable of absorbing up 9x its own weight in water. Alongside these models, Lifeventure has also introduced a new range of lighter weight and fast-drying SoftFibre Lite towels which have been developed with the needs of Duke of Edinburgh’s participants in mind and absorb up to 6x their own weight in water.

Made from the same, ultra-soft SoftFibre fabric as their predecessors, the new SoftFibre Trek Towels are treated with Polygiene® odour control technology.  Polygiene® utilises natural silver salt, a highly effective and permanent odour control agent, to safely inhibit the growth of odour-causing bacteria and fungi. Ideal for backpackers or outdoor enthusiasts that won’t have regular access to washing facilities, the Polygiene® treatment will keep the SoftFibre Trek Towels fresh and odour-free for longer. 

SoftFibre Trek Towels


An ideal companion for all types of outdoor adventure, Lifeventure’s SoftFibre Trek Towels are available in a variety of sizes ranging from ‘Pocket’ to ‘Giant’.

Range details:

SoftFibre Advance Trek Towels

Available in:

Colours: Pink | Blue | Green

Sizes: Pocket | Large | X-Large | Giant
