    I’ve been looking at getting a packtowl to have a better absorber than my thin 20″ x 20″ cotton bandana. Packtowl has two different models, the first is the 85% polyester with 15% spandex while the original is made of 90% Rayon and 10% polypropyleen. I’m not an expert on materials, so please educate me, but was looking for the best multi use option. Something I could still wear underneath my trucker hat for added needed sun protection on a hot day.

    Cotton bandanas work well to absorb water and evaporate just enough to work wonders for cooling when it is hot. It is easy to wash, compacts into a tiny package when dry, and is light.

    I just got a piece of $1/yd mostly white 100% cotton fabric from WalMart.  Cut it and had the edges sewn up for about a 30″ square.  Covers my bald pate with a visor over it.  I can use it to dry myself off after a shower/bath/swim.  Can be used for medical purposes.  Very flexible.
