Compactness For World Travel And Light Load Towels

Survival preparation is one of the most essential parts of scheduling any mission or trip. It is crucial to pre-plan for the contingencies when you may have to stay in an unfriendly terrain without anything but just some life saving gear, and in a few situations, without any safety gear or kit.

Therefore, it is essential to plan for and carry endurance and survival supplies when we set out for a trip where emergencies and contingencies might arise. One must never go out without carrying the essential survival gear to places where assistance may take a little bit of time in reaching you when something happens wrong.

Everything, which goes inside your survival equipment kit must be essential, adaptable and multipurpose. Military forces diligently plan and prepare survival kits for officers and individuals who carry out missions and require survival apparatus. One of the exclusive survival tools that some in the military use is in it’s kits are lightload towels. These lightload towels are as small as a hockey puck while they are folded. These towels measure anywhere between 12 x 36 inches and 30 x 24 inches yet weigh only half an ounce.

Lightload Towels are made out of 100% viscose. They are packed in watertight packs that help them remain dry in the wettest of situations and are so small that you can easily carry a couple in your pocket since they fold to the size of a quarter. Lightload Towels can be as inconspicuous as pocket change, but in a life and death situation, these things will be priceless as they can perform multiple functions as a life saving tool. Some of the main ways in which a light load towel can help in an emergency are:

• Harnessing Drinking Water: Lightload towels tend to soak up more water when compared to the usual cotton towel. In addition, these multiple purpose lightload towels can also assist you in harnessing rain water or even dew when you are faced with a shortage.

• Making Shelter: The first thing that you need to do in order to survive in the rough terrains is to search for or make your own shelter. Lightload towels which are extremely compact to carry around, open up into full beach size towels i.e. 36 x 60 inches. A couple of these full sized beach light load towels can provide help in making a temporary shelter during dry weather. As these towels are extremely compact, you can keep them in your survival gear kit when you fall short of space to pack extra stuff for making an emergency shelter.

• Treating Injuries: Sealed, sanitized and dry lightload towels can be used for first-aid treatment in emergencies. These towels take up very little space when compared to gauze and therefore act as multipurpose gear while traveling.

• Signaling: Unfortunately, sometimes you get trapped in a condition where you are not able to rescue yourself without external help. In such cases, you need a signaling device like a mirror or flares to get attention and help. However, if you are not carrying any signaling devices with you, then lightload towels, which can unfurl into flags can act as a signaling device that will help your rescuers in finding you.

Lightload Towels: A Great Addition to Your Diaper Bag

Lightload Towels: A Great Addition to Your Diaper Bag

  During the summer, my diaper bag seems to always seems to be bursting at the seams. Aside from all of the usJuly08_003ual neJuly08_001July08_005cessities that I schlepp around with me on a day to day basis, I generally need to be prepared at all times for the sandbox and a quick dip in the sprinkler.  The sprinklers at the park are inhumanly cold, and my son turns blue pretty quickly…so I try to always have a towel with me in addition to a change of clothing.  When I found a mention of the Lightload towel in a magazine that I was perusing at a doctor’s office, I knew I had to try it right away.  This tiny camping towel comes all scrunched up in a little disc wrapped in plastic, once opened (it took some doing) it becomes a lightweight towel about the size of two washcloths.  Even though it looked kind of dinky, it was soft and absorbent enough to do a pretty good job of drying off a soaking wet toddler. Company founder George Wheeler tells me that it can be machine washed in a delicate cycle so that it can be reused…I’ll throw it in the wash soon and report back on that.  If once decides to throw it out  instead of washing it, (they run about $6 a piece, depending on the size and how many you buy) rest assured that they are biodegradable.
