Occasionally I see some interesting travel related products being crowd funded that I think you guys might be interested in.  We’ve talked about the Tropic travel shoe, the Cleansebot bacteria killing robot, and the Hypercube charger, among others. Here’s a few of the travel related crowd funded projects that I’ve seen

Travel related kickstarters:

Today I wanted to talk a bit about the Toliya travel towel, which bills itself as a soft, quick drying, compact, lightweight and natural towel for travel, bath, sports and other things.

It is on Kickstarter only through this SUNDAY (January 13th) at 6PM EST. All Kickstarter links in this post may pay me a commission if you boost the project through my link.

Toliya travel towel features

Here are a few pictures of the Toliya travel towel

Here are some of the features

Also, even though it’s the same size as a standard towel, when it compacts, it only takes about 1/5th the size of a traditional towel

It also claims to dry 3 times as fast as a regular towel.
