Outlier Grid Linen Towel Review


hello travellers, so today we’re taking a look at the Outlier Grid Linen Towel The Outlier grid linen towel is, as the name suggests, a lightweight 100% linen town the size I have here is the ‘large’ in a
‘clear blue’ color it is advertised as ‘the perfect beach towel’ on Outlier’s site. So I decided to try it out at the beach and put it to the test The large size is 55
inches by 36 inches or 140 by 91cm and it is surprisingly
lightweight for its size weighing only 10.7 ounces or 305 grams it’s large
enough to wrap around your whole body and is also large enough to lie on as a
beach towel the grid linen towels texture straight out of the box is a bit rough and I have seen it described as ‘scratchy’. However the towel does get significantly softer the more that you wash it and it wears in very nicely. The
linen material is very strong and durable too. the grid structure of the towel also helps it to maximize the absorption a couple more great things
about the linen fabric is that it dries quickly and sand doesn’t stick to it in
the same way as it does to cotton towels the final benefit of linen is that the towel won’t develop a smell even after washing in the same way that microfiber
towels tend to. I’ve been using it for about two to three weeks as my daily
towel just after a shower and I’ve used it a few times at the beach and have
washed it several times and I do think it definitely has got a bit softer each
time. I can also attest to the excellent absorption of the towel and the quick
drying properties. it dries in about an hour or more, depending on the conditions. the towel I usually use for traveling is the sea2summit pocket towel and it does
pack up very small and is super lightweight I have seen people complain about microfiber towels developing a smell even after washing although I haven’t personally noticed it with my pocket
towel and I certainly haven’t noticed it with the linen towel. it’s a hard choice
to choose between the smaller and slightly lighter microfiber pocket towel
and this grid linen towel. I would not hesitate to take the grid linen towel over
the pocket towel if it packed up as small I would love to try the medium
sized version. Because Outlier did previously offer a medium and a small
version of the grid linen towel but this year is only the large or the
extra-large if I’m going hiking or to the beach or day trips, the grid linen towel will be my first choice ultimately when it comes down to it, it
does roll up about the same size as a t-shirt and can be easily packed in
amongst your clothes in your bag so it really depends if you need that slight
bit of extra space or weight in your bag over a microfiber towel in terms of cost, it is $59 US dollars or about $83 Australian, which is on the
higher end for towel but a fairly reasonable price for a high-quality
linen product I’ve seen some people mention that there are cheaper linen towels on etsy and other similar websites but I have also read that
they’re often not 100% linen and lack the same level of quality over the Outlier
brand. One more thing worth noting is that the outlier grid linen towels come
in nine interesting colors as well overall a really nice packable towel
that really lives up to being the ‘the perfect beach towel’ so that’s it, thanks very much for watching be sure to leave a comment down below which kind of towel that you
use when you’re traveling or that you would suggest for others to use and be sure to stay subscribed to keep up to date with future videos.

  1. The decathlon microfiber towel or a Turkish towel. The fabric is softer and as a girl I can use it as a scarf too 🙂

  2. I use the Sea to Summit microfiber blue towel but I find that the color rubs off on my fingernails whenever I wash it and small pieces stick to my skin when I'm drying my face :/

  3. Hello. Please Outlier Strong Dungarees and Strontdart reviews.
    (My english is bad sorry)
    Thank you for review.

  4. The "towel" I've been using isn't actually a towel (or at least that's not what it's sold as)! I've been using a maxi Hipknoties garment as a towel. It's large, very absorbent, nicely soft and can be worn in many other ways when not in use as a towel. But this is probably more helpful for female travellers

  5. The extra large size of that linen towel looks big enough to be used as a sheet or a light blanket! 😀
