During the lockdown and dreaming about hitting the trail, I've had a few conversations with Scouting folks about backpacking towels.  I tend to keep two of the shamwow type towels in my pack.  They do the job, dry quickly, and soak up quite a bit.  I've used traditional cotton towels, but recommend these type of towels for backpacking.  Having been to Philmont a few times with a different towel each time, I'm interested in what  you use or tell your scouts are best.

All the cool kids have a camp towel (synthetic wannabe tericloth) and shammi type towel. Both require a lot of rinsing and drying to deodorize. But, they do dry quickly.

I also agree on the lightweight synthetic shami style towels can't be beat for the lightness and compact size.  After a few snaps they dry pretty quickly.  I can't imagine taking a real towel backpacking, they take forever to dry.
