So you want a Towelie (Towel Poncho / surf towel) whatever you wanna call it 😜
But you're not sure which one is for you?
At STOKEDNZ we have 2 different weights of ponchos. All made from 100% Turkish Cotton. We refer to these as "lightweight & winter".
These are our super lightweight / quick drying 100% Turkish Cotton Towelies. They pack up tiny and are epic for travel.
- quick drying
- absorbent - can hold up to 3 x its weight in water.
- good for travel
- folds up tiny
- Great sun protector because it's lightweight and not too hot.
- no gross mildew smell.
- literally all you need for summer, Kiwis happily spend weeks on end in them!
- Motorhomers / van lifers because they take up hardly any space. In fact you can fit 6 adult sized Towelies rolled up in the same space of one "traditional towel".
- Back packers / bike packers because it's so versatile and takes up so little space.
- Surfers - because the colours are vibrant and rad.
- Frequent travellers as they dry so quick. They can chuck them back in their suitcase in no time.
- Beach goers - it's a towel, a cover up and a beach mat in one.
- Camp ground users - walking to and from the showers in their Towelie. No need to carry a bunch of clothes, a towel, shampoo etc.
- Kids - they love the lightweight feel and freedom of movement PLUS they're covered up from the sun.
- Not as warm as the other STOKEDNZ Towelies.
The thickest, warmest Towelie we make. Perfect for that person that is always cold, on the boat between sessions or throwing on after a spa / hot pools to walk / drive home in.
- Super warm 500 GSM Terry Lined Towelie. (Terry lined = fluffy and warm on the inside, but sand / sticks / grass etc won't stick to the outside, handy huh?).
- Feels more like a "traditional" towel.
- Aqua Joggers love these Towelies to throw on over their togs after a swim. They tend to drive home in them and shower at home. Because of the thickness, they are kept nice and toasty for the drive.
- Wakeboarders - the extra weight makes them really warm on the boat while waiting between sessions.
- Me! After the hot pools this is my go to Towelie.
- Anyone with a spa, after they jump out they can walk to the house in total comfort.
- Kids - terry towelies are a hit with kids doing swimming lessons. Again, no need to hit the changing rooms at after school swimming, just chuck on a towelie, whip off the togs and drive home snuggly and warm.
- People who are new to Turkish cotton LOVE these as they are a perfect halfway point between the traditional towels they have been using and the super lightweight traditional Turkish cotton, which has a completely different feel.
- Takes longer to dry
- Takes up more space than our lightweight Towelies
Hopefully this clarifies the two types of Towelies we make and which might suit you best.
