March 27, 2009
Comander Lou Schwartz of Lake Norman Sail & Power Squadron reviewed the Lightload Towels for the March/April 2009 issue of Ensign Magazine, a boating Magazine, and gave them an overwhelming thumbs up.

During a recent stay on his cruiser Comander Schwartz used the lightload Towels instead of a normal bath towel and “they worked great. The towels are extremely
absorbent and machine washable.”

Cdr Schwartz goes on to say, ” the thought that I could have carried towels in my pocket during my recent climb of Mount Kilimanjaro simply astonishes me. I recommend using these towels not only for boating but also camping, hiking vacation travel and even in your survival kit. The brightly colored towels are perfect for signaling for help, and they make a great wind or winter scarf.”

Cdr. Schwartz is an avid boater for 35 years. He cruises on North Carolina’s Lake Norman and the Intracoastal waterway.
