u/macbooklover91 · 18 pointsr/onebag

A lot depends on the style you're looking for. I'll also say that security in a bag is a myth. There are things to discourage certain behavior, but ultimately a bag should never be seen as a secure container. (after all it can always be cut)

What I chose.

I traveled for about a month in Europe staying in hostels. Even though it was only a month I could have traveled for about a year (adding only a tablet) with the bag/things I brought.

Osprey Farpoint 40 Travel Backpack - $150 (Discontinued)

[Osprey Farpoint 40 Travel Backpack

  • $160 (New Version)](

    I love this bag but it might not be the single best option for you. It's low profile, turns into a duffle bag (more about that later) and although it doesn't look like a school backpack, it doesn't standout like this either.

    The reason I love that it turns into a duffle bag is because theres a semi hidden velcro pocket in the bottom where the cover rolls into. This is a great place to sew or velcro a small zippered wallet or bag to store extra money or valuables. It's not secure as much as its hidden. This won't help you if they steal the whole bag, but it will help you if they just ransack the place and steal from the open compartments.

    Other Options

    There are a ton of other options. I suggest watching the VagaBrothers Video - How to Choose the BEST Travel BACKPACK | Pros & Cons Minimalist Backpack Review and Travel Tips: Packing Hacks, Tips & Essentials

    The F Stop bags look great, but are pretty pricy. Depending on what lenses you're bringing (18-55mm kit lens VS 70-200mm VR f2.8) it may or may not be worth it for size and configurability. I personally bought a Sony a6000 and left my big DSLR at home. That was actually a really good choice for the type of trip I did, but if I was going for a year (like you are) I understand needing the big camera. You might want to get camera/lens inserts like this (but not necessarily that one, I just clicked on the first one I saw on amazon) to store and protect those other lenses.

    Hope that helps.

    The following is copy and pasted from an email I sent to family friends traveling abroad. It gives links and ideas for things that help when traveling minimally.


  • 2 Mini cologne bottles - Well worth it if you are doing carry on only, or if you like to bring more than one scent with you. Depending on how much you use I find that a bottle filled up lasts about 1.5-2 weeks if you are using 2-3 sprays a day.

  • World power adapter - Awesome adapter. A lot nicer than the 50 mini adapters you have to piece together like legos.

  • Power strip - I never used this. I wouldn't get it unless you knew you needed it. They are good ways to make friends at airports though, as plugs are always in high demand and few people will say no to letting you free up a plug or two.

  • Battery pack - (updated version) OR While there are cheaper and smaller ones, this is the perfect size and capacity if you are bringing a couple or more devices. This will charge a phone many times over. It's especially handy if you want to leave it charging in the hotel then bring it with you during the day after it's charged.

  • Compressed charcoal deodorizers - Great to throw in shoes or bags that start to get smelly. Useful in hostels.

  • Microfiber towel - Very useful for hostels as most will charge you to use towels

  • Tripod - paired with a phone mount ( this can be used to hold the phone on long flights. Really nice for watching movies on the plane or waiting for a train.

  • Roll up 1L water bottles - Great for airplanes (no longer need to buy water after TSA).

  • I packed all of my clothes into cubes and a flat packer.



    Since I was traveling alone, and in hostels, security was a slightly bigger deal for me. I carried my passport on my person or locked in my hostel (many had lockers or metal lock boxes).

    At all times I had a photo copy of my passport and everything in my wallet, some local currency, and a print out of all the embassies in the area. (Attached to this email.) I printed this double sided and had multiple copies with me.
    I told my mom, "At any time I want to be able to have everything stolen, but still have a way back home.” My credit card will do cash transfers internationally and also includes a continuous travel insurance package.

    I would highly suggest making three copies of your passport and all credit cards and other ID you are taking. One lives on your person when your passport is stored elsewhere (hotel, for example), one lives in your luggage (preferably hidden/tucked away), and one stays with a trusted friend or family member that will be in the States for the duration of your trip. If anything happens they will be able to assist with proving your identity to the State Department, thus speeding the process along. I suggest keeping some cash tucked in your passport (along with that embassy list), your copy of the passport in the luggage, and then the copy of the passport and embassy list in your wallet. At this point you have three possibilities of things to grab to prove your identity/pay for a cab/tell you where to go.

    While this may seem a little overboard, I find it doesn't take that long to set up and helps greatly should anything bad happen. Also consider registering with the State Department. This helps them track Americans abroad should anything happen, and also gives you alerts, should anything happen.


    Tech Tips

    I also used a service called Line2 to give me a US phone number to call from and receive calls to while I was away. I have T-Mobile that gives me included unlimited international data. As long as I had a 4g signal, I also had a phone I could make and receive calls on. Google Voice and Skype would also do this. Do be aware of how much international data costs. Wifi is easy to find, but I suggest using a VPN on your phone or laptop for any web surfing. And even with the VPN I would not suggest logging into any financial (bank, etc) while abroad unless you are on a trusted wifi network (aka, friends).

    For maps you can download parts of Google Maps by searching the city and clicking “Download." This should work on Android and iOS versions of Google Maps.

Next thing on the survival menu: make sure you have enough cash and convert it to Canadian before you leave. I normally suggest you bring about $150 - $200 depending on how early you plan on getting in. The cash machine can run out and I don't know how well it works with American bank accounts. ( $50/day early iirc ) Food also can get expensive.. Be ready for that


There are a few places you can get food along the way, Kelwona is good, Castlegar is great ( No frills sells cheap food.. vegis can be meh, but for dirt cheap thats where I hit up ) Nelson is out of the way but has a "membership free bulk store" called Wholesale club.. It works but might be too large for one person


Canadian tire will sell cheap coolers ( styrofoam etc ) so you can pick that up drop some ice in and go. Personally i hate suggesting styrofoam but you do what you need to.


To pack your bag to save the maximum space, ROLL your clothes then push them into ziplock freezer bags. you can easily fit 2 - 3x the amount into a bag, depending on the size of your backpack and how long you will be there it can make it much easier to fit everything. Also bring a bathing suit in a spare bag. Toss it into the bag before tossing it into your backpack as you leave so it won't stink up everything.


For clothing, shorts and tshirts work great, Lots of people love to dress up with costumes.. Now, it does get a bit chilly at night if you are not at the stages. A pair of pants and a hoodie is a good idea, ALSO KNOW, there is always a chance it could rain. so be ready for that. Normally it doesn't last long but you could get wet.


( I will link my basic hiking setup at the bottom, I've collected this stuff over years but I can make it about 5-7 days with this, obviously you don't need everything but thats what I take hiking )


Make sure to bring a GOOD pair of shoes for walking. When it gets dark, the paths become.. Sketchy. during the day sandals works but I always perfered my walking shoes. Water shoes are also AMAZING. The river is rockey.. Well.. only rocks.. So having something you can walk though it is super nice. You can do it bare foot and I have many times but its not always the most comfortable of things.


  1. Get a good backpack, On the cheaper side, get a Amazon Basics Note, 75lr could put you over the 50lb mark at the airport so be prepared for that -- SIDE NOTE. Ask the person at the flight desk for a bag to put your backpack into and tape it up. Makes flying 9000x better with a backpack because it won't get caught


  2. get a hiking sleeping bag aka, very light weight and compact.


  3. Camping Chair


  4. water pack




  6. Foamy ( foams are lighter than inflatables every lb counts )


  7. hiking pillow ( takes up 1/10th the space )


  8. hiking towels


  9. SUNSCREEN!!! Very important unless you enjoy being a lobster. The sun is VERY STRONG out in the valley the first year I went, I watched a guy go from well tanned construction worker to lobster to a walking talking blister. Not fun


  10. dollar store tarps and rope ( probably $10 combined so don't feel bad trashing them after )


  11. FLASHLIGHT, The roots are killer at night.. I swear, the trees are alive and will try and trip you


  12. eating utensils.. I got a kit from the dollar store for $10 then just eat out of my pots.


  13. TENT: I got a greer top hiking tent.. Its gone from amazon.. a 2man tent is your best bet get it as light as possible.
u/SmokeyDawg2814 · 13 pointsr/bonnaroo

Definitely get hooked up with the good folks at accessibility if you have not already.

Keeping cool and hydrated are also going to be of major concern...obviously. Outside of the obvious things like wide brim hat, high SPF sunscreen (and plenty of it!), and a camelbak a few things come to mind:

  • Frogg Togg Chilly Pad - wife and I used them a few years changer. Pick up a couple.

  • A personal fan - I don't use one, but, you may find it useful.

    Of course, having a good friend along to help carry stuff and keep an eye on you is also important. I assume you won't partake in any partyfavors, but, I'd feel bad if I didn't drop a reminder not to.

    Other random thoughts:

  • Get comfortable walking shoes and break them in before Bonnaroo
  • Rent an RV if you can swing it. Most in and around the major cities near Bonnaroo (Knoxville, Chattanooga, Nashville) are all long gone by now, but, worthwhile to try and find one. You'll be much more comfortable through the weekend.
  • Remember it is a marathon, not a sprint. When the schedule comes out look over and determine when you'll have good solid gaps to be able to take a break. Centeroo can be overwhelming for anyone and it's good to get some time at the campsite and chill.
  • Get a CamelBak or other hydration system - mine has lasted me 10+ years, brand name is worth it.

    I've never been in accessibility, but, from everything I understand they take extremely good care of everyone. A good friend of mine has gone that way with his brother 3 times and they love it.

    This is everything I can think of off the top of my head. I'm sure you've done it, but, definitely talk to your doctors about certain things you should be mindful of while there. I'm sure accesibility is different, but, average Bonnaroovian spends a TON of time on their feet and in the sun. It can be exhausting even for healthy individuals. Partying from noon (or earlier) until 3AM (or later) takes it out of anyone. Just know yourself, your limitations, and priority shows and pace the weekend accordingly.

    Feel free to PM if you have additional questions.
u/potato0 · 7 pointsr/BurningMan

These cooling towels are AWESOME. They are made of a material that water soaks into, but doesn't come out of easily. This means they hold a ton of water, stay wet for ages, and don't get anything touching them wet at all (so you don't get an irritated neck like you do from wearing a wet towel). Seriously if you wet one of these and give it a squeeze, you'll be amazed by how much water comes out. They dry stiff, so make sure to fold them up neatly while they're still wet. Highly, highly recommended.

Shemaghs make great dust masks, head scarves, and hats. There is a reason these things are so popular in the desert. Lots of colors too.

These are the disposable dust masks to get. For a proper whiteout, they offer better filtration/protection than a bandana, and the valve means you can actually wear them for more than five minutes without suffocating. They come in little individually wrapped packs, which mean they're great for gifts (although I'd unwrap the ones you aren't planning to carry around as a gift at home).

Not prime, but free shipping, and if you order now they'll get here: goggles. Comes with a day and night set, inexpensive and highly recommended. These are my go-to utility goggles.

These personal misters are good. They aren't durable, so don't count on it lasting more than a year, but they're much more compact than the big garden sprayers.

If you feel the need to own a Soviet Russian spec gas mask, amazon has one for 10 bucks. Protip: that bag it comes with is the perfect size to stick a 1 gallon waterbottle (the kind with the peice of tape a handle, not the ones with the handle built into the bottle) to turn it into a canteen.

If you enjoy biking, and tend to wear boots, wide, grippy pedals are great bike upgrade. I was really suprised at the difference they made for stability and my ability to comfortably put power to the ground. I went for these ones that were on sale last year (not prime), but the shape is what matters from what I can tell, so any ones like that with the grip nubs should be good. There are cheaper ones made of plastic, but I find plastic pedals crack on the playa way too easily, and a decent set of metal ones was worth the investment.

u/Hearbinger · 1 pointr/travel

Came here just to say: portable phone charger (power bank, battery pack, whatever you wanna call it). Seems like a lot of people have said that already, but I'll do it again: Portable phone charger. Saved my ass a couple of times, it's extremely useful for someone who'll be on the run like her.

Personally, my camera was my second most important travel equipment besides my phone, the one time I forgot to take it with me I was sad the whole time. If she likes photography, a nice camera might be a great gift. But if she isn't really into it, a camera will be just a burden, a cellphone is better to take selfies and more practical if you don't care much about the quality of the pictures of the places. I wouldn't buy one without being sure that she'd like it, ask her if you have to. There are also those new polaroids, I believe they're called instax, which are pretty popular, if your daughter is a hipster teen she might like it too. They're nice.

Edit.: You said "aside from the basics", please make sure the basics include good shoes. She'll walk a lot in Europe, so comfort is the number-one priority. Another nice thing for her to have is a microfiber travel towel like this. They take up way less space than standard ones and dry very quickly, it's extremely useful for when she is on the run.

u/raven457 · 3 pointsr/motocamping

It just so happened that a lot of Eureka stuff was on sale at the time I was shopping, so I look like something of a fanboy.

u/thebananastandard · 2 pointsr/CampingGear

Check out Outdoor Gear Lab for reviews of all kinds of gear. Including a "Best Buy" in each category. Even if you don't buy their recommendations it helps you know what to look for/avoid.

  • Pack - Check out Walmart. Honestly their Ozark Trail stuff isn't the worst in the world for less than $30. Especially if you'll be upgrading later.
  • Kettle/pot and utensils - Are you only boiling water for coffee? Try a Toaks 550 pot with lid. It's your mug. If you're doing boil in bag meals it's also your water boiler. Just bring a spoon and fork from home. Or if you're worried about ruining or losing it, go to Goodwill/Walmart/Dollar store. As for a stove I love the PocketRocket 2. $45 but you can find it for cheaper.

  • Permethrin - Yes. Buy the concentrate on Amazon for much cheaper than premixed. Follow this guide to treat your clothes before you go. Bring deet as a backup or for exposed skin.
  • Power bank - Anker is a pretty popular brand. I got the PowerCore 15600 mAh from Amazon and I love it.
  • Dishwashing - No need! Lick it. Rinse it. Wipe it if you must.
  • Shower - I got one of these scrubby washcloths from Amazon. It's really aggressive so you don't even really need soap. Find a water source or just your drinking bottle, get it wet and scrub all your danger zones. Plus it dries super quickly and rinses clean.
  • Bears - Get a cheap 8L dry bag (or however big you need), line it with an OP Sak and hang it.
  • Clothing - check out the sale rack at REI. Also Target/Walmart has good, light workout shirts and bottoms. Avoid cotton at all costs.

u/dustinswan · 4 pointsr/onebag

You and I have a lot of the same stuff! Here are the intersections:

  • Nike Free 4.0
  • Outlier Slim Dungarees
  • Outlier New Way Shorts
  • Smartwool Socks (although I prefer my Chrome merino socks now)
  • Sony Xperia Z3 (but I don't have the compact)
  • Dr. Bronner's (but everyone has this!)

    Things you have that are on my shopping list:

  • Outlier merino co/pivot

    Things that someone with our taste might like, and that I don't see in your list:

  • FLOSSCARD - super small floss
  • Lunatec Trekr - durable & super light wash cloth
  • Neutrogena Lip Balm w/ SPF - sunburned lips suck

    That Vapur bottle looks nice. I have the Platypus, which looks pretty similar.

    Are you working at all while traveling?

    Thanks for the info and inspiration!
u/iluvjly · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I know it is way too late for tonight but there are these amazing towel things that help you stay cool in the heat. They are called Chilly Pads. I used one when I was outside last week when it was around 100 and I swear by the thing. Pretty amazing find!

u/6GoesInto8 · 2 pointsr/bikecommuting

Looks like others have the bags covered well, so I will add some alternative ideas. Have you considered downsizing what you carry? Life at 20L is a lot simpler than at 30L. I am a sweaty (but not normally smelly)person and I have been able to switch to baby wipes and deodorant from a full shower and I am happier. I save a lot of time and storage space. I switched to the prana stretch Zion pants which can be bikes in with shorts underneath but are still fine in a business casual setting. I bike in with just a spare shirt wipes and deodorant in my bag. I take 5 minutes for my base layer to dry off a bit then go to the big stall and take off the bike specific clothes, wipe down and add deodorant then put on my collared shirt. I carry that, a small laptop and my lunch in a 20L backpack that I transport in one ortlieb pannier. Ortliebs will hold more than their stated volume but you sacrifice waterproof levels.

My opinion is that the best option is learning to live with 1 pannier. I added internal backpack as I have a long walk to my desk. The ortlieb is not nice to carry long distances and my parking is very secure.

If you really need a shower Micro fiber towels (faux suede)can also save a lot of space and still get you dry but require a different technique as they grab the skin a lot more. You need to dab or have it balled to wipe down.

u/White_tiger_ · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

The thing that has made me the happiest this week besides here on RAoA was being able to go out and throw discs again, I love playing disc golf and I messed up my arm and shoulder over a month ago and haven't been able to play.

To celebrate, a new disc golf towel is in order. :-)

Edit: favorite food would be bacon. or just about anything with bacon in it. :-)


u/leilei67 · 4 pointsr/Ultralight

Not a thru hiker. But I'm also a female. I love my wind pants from amazon. I wear a medium and they are 95g. Not as light as other options but affordable.

Instead of wipes, you could mail yourself some compressed towels. I have some from daiso that are individually packaged like little candies. But there's also some on amazon. Definitely useful for that time of the month!

Also a PCT 2020 hopeful!

u/OneGoodMott · 1 pointr/backpacking

I did a 3-month trip through Europe when I was 23. I found some really cheap tickets (landed in Norway, departed from Spain).

My best advice is to decide on a country and book those plane tickets first. You will make it happen if you have the ticket booked.

For a backpack, I highly recommend the Osprey Porter. Just the right size for a two-week trip. I lived out of it for months.

A travel towel and several sets of ear-plugs are also a great place to start.

Good luck!

u/JoeyBagOfDonuts57 · 8 pointsr/bonnaroo - They have some pretty sweet festival gear.

It's really whatever you're most comfortable in. Just remember during the day, it's going to be HOT. I usually just rock a tank and a bathing suit and a large brimmed hat. I can't stress enough about the large brimmed hat. Some may look ridiculous but it will save you from the sun.

Also get a cooling towel/rag, it will be a LIFE saver -


Happy Roo!!



u/ptntprty · 14 pointsr/Drugs

You're laughing but that's really about how much water you should be bringing per person, per day. Honestly I might bring some extra in case there are any trip-related fuckups on wasting/losing water.

Bring some shade (like an EZ-up) to chill underneath. Hats. Suncreen (and use it often). You don't want to get fuckin toasted while you're tripping.

Also cooling towels like these that you get wet every now and then can really help cool you down during the day.

u/ItsGood2Bqueen · 3 pointsr/PersonalFinanceCanada

I love my Cooling towel If I'm out in hot weather it'll keep cool for a good 3 hours. And this Silicone Popcorn Maker makes great popcorn in the microwave. Threw out our old air popcorn maker that didn't work all that well.

  8. belay device
  9. warm hat and gloves not sure what the weather will be like but I reserve these for when it may snow

A mister is a good call. I had one of those pocket fans with a misting spray bottle attached, picked it up for super cheap at a dollar store and it came in handy but I didn't end up using it all that much.

Last year, my friend's girlfriend brought these things called Frog Toggs, it's like a hand towel made of a weird fabric that gets cold when it gets wet. I kept one around the back of my neck and then just wet it again whenever I went to get water. Came in really handy and I was surprised how well it worked.

How much luggage does he travel with and how many countries is he going to? That will determine what’s a good choice.

My fave travel gadgets have been

  1. battery charger, a large one that can go multiple days without charging. And also your friends will like to use.

  2. micro towel. (It’s a game changer) I got the one at rei in a large. Just big enough to wrap around your waist.

  3. cabeau travel pillow, eye mask, ear plugs (if he’s flying a lot or going to a lot of places. This is my sleep anywhere kit and essential if traveling multiple countries)

  4. collapsable water bottle(spending money on bottled water adds up and you can get water after you pass through security for the plane when the air gets dry. I get dry throat on planes)

  5. a collapsable travel day back pack (man purse or if you buy things. I keep my water bottle and battery in there. Extra clothes, selfie stick etc and if you’re over your luggage limit you can take stuff out and put it in there. When not in use it fold up into a small bag.

u/babycamelopard · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

Great tips! As an alt to the fan with the spray, you can also get one of those towels that get cool when you wet them. There are a ton of these on Amazon — here's one brand.

I'd also download the Disneyland app which has estimated wait times and all the info on the park map in a more manageable package :)

u/olvera901 · 3 pointsr/bikecommuting

I commuted to school a little over 12 miles during a month, my senior of high school so I know where you're coming from. I road a heavy mountain bike. I would first suggest getting a better fitting/appropriate bike, this will definitely decrease your time travel. Some other ideas:

  • Get Sea to Summit Dry Towel or Speedo Towel
  • Sick with some all natural deodorant
  • If it is that bad bring a change of shirt/shoes
  • Try to mix it up with Public Transportation
  • Drink water
  • Add panniers (No experience, but I have heard that it helps with back sweat)
  • Enjoy your ride, take in surroundings, and smile

You are probably correct. If the lessons are indoors, he will be warmer in just regular swim trunks and a swim diaper. Also, depending on the amount of interaction you are allowed to have with him during the lessons, you may want to get him one of those pool towels that divers use, like this one that he can keep by the side of the pool and dry off with when he has to get out. It's small enough that even if it falls in the water, it's not nearly as big a deal as having a huge beach towel fall in. I'm fairly sure they float as well.

Another suggestion would be seeing if rather than waiting on the pool deck, the kids could be allowed to wait in the water, hanging on to the side of the pool

u/vadim-1971 · 6 pointsr/Frugal

Apart from air circulation at night, I recommend the following:

  1. Good insulation during the day. Not just blinds, put tin foil up on your windows to keep the sun away.

  2. Cool your body, not the rooms. You can cool your hands or your neck -- what you're really doing is cooling your blood, and hence your core. You can do this by yourself (take a break every 30 mins and soak your hands in a bucket of ice water for 2 minutes), or find a commercial product.

You can replace toothpaste, dry shampoo, and camp suds by taking Dr Bronners Peppermint.

You can also replace biowipes with EZ Towels. Combine them with some water and Dr Bronners and your butthole will be minty fresh.

As far as footprint - I find them to be pointless extra weight, just ensure your site doesn't have pointy things and you should be fine.

u/Nighthawk6997 · 4 pointsr/ElectricForest
These are so amazing when its super hot outside. I had one when everyone had to wait in that awful line through the front gates on the first day. Total lifesaver considering my friend and I were waiting for ,i kid you not, four hours to get in.

Reusable Zippo hand warmers for cold nights/mornings and those compressed towel coins to wipe your face/ass/tears are life savers in the field.

The 110g canister fits if you put it in upside down. My MSR 110g canisters fit in my Stanley pot which is only about a year old. Doubt that the pot has changed since they've been selling that same design for years.


I have one of these scrubby, quick-rinse/dry washcloths that I use for cleanup. I shove that in the very bottom of the pot and then slide the canister in (upside down) on top of it. The washcloth helps protect the connection on the canister and also helps keep the pot from getting scratched.

u/burdydee · 1 pointr/clothdiaps

I know you said sposie diapers, but I do grovia hybrids, so that's what I would use with the biosoaker and cover. But here is another option to wipes that you wouldn't have to keep waking! EZ Towel with New Durable Tube and Packaging, 50 Pieces by EZ-Towel saw these at a green fair and lived them.

u/hercaneleonard · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

Coleman stove and a headlamp. Linked some stuff below too. I also always bring a large bowl and get water from the water stations and fill it up and use that as a water basin to wash my hands.

these towels save space and are epically good for long hair and your body, they dry within an hour!

u/Warkoala · 1 pointr/Austinmotorcycles

Consider getting one of these Frogg Togg Chilly Pads. I used one last summer riding through the arizona desert, and they make ALL the difference in the world, I promise. Also, the Frogg Togg brand towels are vastly superior to the knock-off brands. My dad and brother each had some no-name brand cooling towels, and theirs were always bone dry while mine was still moist and cool.

u/lvsheep · 2 pointsr/electricdaisycarnival

Not exactly a bandanna, but this is similar to what was described above. Definitely recommend it!

u/themandober · 6 pointsr/bonnaroo

Got a Frogg Toggs version of this two years ago for 'Roo and it helped. It wasn't the be-all-end-all (nothing short of an AC'ed RV is going to be anyway), but it made the difference between suffering and surviving. I can only vouch for Frogg Toggs' version of these towels but it did help to keep me a bit more comfortable in the peak heat.

u/elemen7al · 11 pointsr/Coachella

I can't recommend anything higher than the cooling towels:
Stays cool until it evaporates which is about an hour or 2 in the hot coachella sun. Saved my life the first year i went. Keep it on your shoulders or head when youre out in the sun or take a nap in the shade with it over your face. heaven

u/mrcrassic · 3 pointsr/consulting

okay that's really cute.

but seriously, i bring a towel and washcloth with me everywhere; specifically, these:

u/raccoons_are_scary · 2 pointsr/travel

I love my sea to summit travel towel. It is microfiber but gets an A in fakespot. I have long thick hair and it soaks it all up and dries within in hours. I got the suggestion from a small rec store. Highly recommend!

u/phl_fc · 1 pointr/kilimanjaro

> 0.5 kg for a towel seems a bit on the heavy side... how large is it?

Bring a microfiber towel, not a cotton one. They work just as well and are super lightweight. Amazon link.

u/misses_nesbit · 1 pointr/StartingStrength

If shipping time is a priority, this is a great value and amazon prime 2-day shipping. Solid leather with suede stitch. The reason I actually chose this was because of my short torso and difficulty finding a good 3" belt. This works well for both my squats and deadlifts.

u/Doiq · 1 pointr/AppalachianTrail

I bought an extra small of this It worked quite well as a multi-purpose towel. I used it as a sweat band during hot days, a pre-filter in mucky water, and as an actual towel. It's super small so it'll fit really anywhere, even in your pocket if you had to.

This saved us 2019! It was so effective, all of our new Forest Friends wanted to know where we got it.

u/MCJokeExplainer · 2 pointsr/xxfitness

Get one of these! I get straight up purple, too. Mostly I just stopped caring, but when I wear this, it really helps:

u/___nic___ · 1 pointr/bikecommuting

Live in CO but when I commuted to work on my bike in NC in the summer I would take my clothes in my bag wipe the swear off with a microfiber dry towell ( and the use baby wipes then dry off again then I used deodorant again. Helps to shower before your ride something about bacteria and microbes and starting fresh front he start keeps the smell away.

u/wittlepup · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Well, unless you get like a travel towel, quick dry towels are not even close to BIFL.

One thing I have heard is that using too much soap helps mildew grow, so next wash wash them alone, and use half the recommended amount of soap listed on the bottle. A lot of laundry soaps are very concentrated and often too much gets used.

Check these out:

They stay wet and cool for pretty much forever, very refreshing to rest on your neck/head...

u/TheBeneGesseritWitch · 10 pointsr/navy

All my time in the pit has prepared me for this moment!!

  1. A camelbak. I cannot overstate the importance of properly hydrating.

  2. A coolrag. Soak it in cold water, wring it so it isn’t dripping, put around your neck. —note, you can get a regular shammy towel (ones for when you wash your car and towel it dry) because it holds so much more water than a normal cotton blend. Bonus, wrap ice in it and then drape around your neck.

  3. Fans. Fans. Fans. Everywhere. The ones on a string around your neck with the spray bottle. One on your desk.

  4. If you’re desperate enough...Swamp Cooler. Basically it’s a cooler (usually styrofoam cause we cheap up in here) with a hole cut out of the top for a fan to sit in to blow air down into the ice....and a vent hole on the side for the cold air to come blast you. or you can go full fancy redneck too

  5. Extra socks and skivvies.

  6. Gold bond or equivalent powder for your sweaty bits. A little bit of foot spray or foot powder goes a long way.

  7. Wear coveralls if possible—you can roll the pant legs up and make covershorts. They’re much more breathable than NWUs anyway.
u/nv00212 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'm from the south, and we're already hitting the upper 90s :( Fortunately my power bill is included in my monthly rent, so I can crank the AC as low as I want. I would recommend one of these towels. Wrap it around your neck, and it will cool your whole body down. They're awesome.

u/pillowmeto · 2 pointsr/Bushcraft these plus a tiny bit of water make great TP and wipes. They are made of bamboo fibers. Keep them dry.

u/BrosophicalBro · 1 pointr/Wildfire

Buy these pill towels! If you keep certain areas clean, you'll be thanking yourself by day 14.

Avoid fragrant deodorant, certain insects are drawn to the sweet smell, furthermore axe, ass, and body odor is a terrible combo.

Pack more water than you want, you'll never regret it.

Field dress your MREs prior to line work.

Keep your feet dry and pack extra socks. Dry feet = less chance of blisters.

EDIT: Just realized I sound like a MEDL now.

u/emmercury · 1 pointr/backpacking

To add to this, I use a Frogg Toggs Chilly Pad like this one and it stays cool a lot longer. Can also be used as a shammy of sorts to dry dishes, dry off a wet rain fly, etc. Just make sure to rinse it after use and let dry completely to prevent mold.

u/RefinedBulbasir · 8 pointsr/AskDocs

here hope this can help a little bit. Get two, one for on your head under a hat and one for around your neck. This will help keep your brain from over heating.

Drink lots of water, and eat LIGHT, think salads, but do have protein. One of my favorites is a tuna cucumber salad sandwich. It’s light and makes me feel better

Also wear moisture wicking fabrics and put anti monkey butt(or just corn starch) on your butt crack to avoid swamp ass. Depending on your gender apply in other places (balls, inner thighs, under boobs, pits) this will prevent chafing.

Have you talked to your employer about your working conditions? If they refuse to improve it I’m sure they can be reported for unsafe work conditions.

u/MuscleFlex_Bear · 1 pointr/golf

I use one of the ones that retains the water longer. forgot the brand name, but they sell them in the camping gear. I highly recommend that. below is an example but there are other options.

Just one of those things you run under water and wear to keep you cool. Periodically wet it again to stay cool.

I got this Cooling Towel

I wrung it out with ice water and it was good for a few hours! Then I poured more ice water on it from my water bottle and it was very cold. I don't have air conditioning in my car and just put this on my lap/arms etc.

u/twoburgers · 1 pointr/Fitness

I bought one of these microfiber towels on Amazon for the gym. They take up much less space in my gym bag than a standard bath towel, and dry extremely quickly in my work locker, and they don't get that wet-towel smell.

The biggest tip I can give you is to plan ahead. Put your work clothes together the night before and double and triple-check everything. If your gym offers locker rentals, it's incredibly worth it. I keep one of those college dorm shower caddies with all of my toiletries in my locker so everything is all together.

u/32643553 · 5 pointsr/Fibromyalgia

These cool towels! You just get the towel wet, wring it out, and wear it. I usually wear it around my neck or draped over me like a blanket (if its hot inside).

Frogg Toggs Chilly Pad. This is my go-to item on the few occasions I actually visit during the summer. Just run it under water and wrap it around your neck. It helps SO much.

Something like this

u/cleos · 2 pointsr/AskReddit

Get a fan and a chilly pad.

I'm in the same boat - no AC at my house. The chilly pad doesn't solve all the problems, but it helps a lot.

If you live in a non-humid environment, they make evaporative portable AC machines.

Always have water. I'm in Texas and I ride about 5 days out of the week (around 15-20 miles a day) to commute and run errands. Morning is bearable. Lunch time sucks. Ride home from work sucks. Doesn't get bearable until like an hour after sundown but I just suck it up and ride.

I just ordered one of those cooling towels so I'm gonna give that a try once that gets here.
