How To Towel Poncho

The towel poncho is simple. Instead of wrapping your towel around your waist and hoping it stays fastened, simply place the towel poncho over yourself. For example, if you are taking off a wetsuit you would unzip the top half and then place the poncho on yourself, from there, slide off your wetsuit, dry off and then put your swim trunks back on.

This product will prove to be especially useful come the colder months when you are trying to change as fast as possible and get into the warm car. Or when it is chilly outside and you are trying to talk yourself into getting out of your car!

Regardless of the season, towel changing is much more manageable and less intimidating with a towel poncho. Some poncho believers say it also doubles as their jacuzzi towel.
