After the success of our beach towel campaign, we received a ton of requests from our backers and customers asking us to take the same technology and apply it to a smaller footprint for active use.

While many of us may not be fitness nuts, we found that most of us have a similar pain point when it comes to working out. Gym towels suck. They take up too much space in your bag, they start to smell after the first use, they hold on to bacteria, they take forever to dry, and, worst of all, they're boring. These common issues are what led us to create the ultimate gym towel.

Using the same premium anti-bacterial microfiber material as our beach towels, we decided to take things a few steps further. We added a snap band, created four beautiful designs, and selected the optimal dimensions. 

The Snap Band: Located in the upper left corner of the towel, the snap band does what you might expect, but it also does more. At first glance, the snap band might just be thought of as a hanging loop, but it's also used to keep the towel rolled, to attach your keys, or even use it to attach to your bag or water bottle. 

 

 

 

 

Whatever the situation may be, Acteon towels have you covered. Our microfiber towels dry 3x quicker than the average cotton towel. Microfiber has this ability because it is made with ultra-thin strands that are 10 times thinner than a human hair. Additional benefits of microfiber are that it is super soft, incredibly durable, and uses less water to wash.  

Acteon towels are designed to stay fresh even after repeated use. Our towels are treated with silver antimicrobial ions that prevent the growth of bacteria. By prohibiting the growth of bacteria, Acteon towels will maintain their color and remain odor-free. Microfiber adds to this effect because it has natural antibacterial properties that trap less dirt as it dries.

Risks and challenges

Bringing a product from the drawing board to reality is not an easy task. We’ve been fortunate enough to have the funds available to create production ready samples to make sure manufacturing runs smoothly. All that remains is to raise enough money so that we can greenlight the factory and begin production. With that said, there are always unforeseen events that can happen, especially when dealing with a factory that’s half a world away. We wouldn’t bring this to Kickstarter if we weren’t completely confident that we could get our project delivered to backers on schedule.
