Escape the City with a Towel

Urban Escapes is a great way to get away from the city and do outdoorsy stuff like hiking, climbing and boating. Lightload Towels is a proud sponsor. Urban Escapes Founder Maia Josebachvili says:

I brought a three-pack of lightloads with me while backpacking in the Himalayas in Nepal for a month. They were awesome! Didn’t weight a thing (which I really appreciated at 18,000 ft) and were just as effective as a regular towel. I’ll be using them again for sure!’

Hiking Lady Reviews Lightload Towels

Carol Roberts The founder of hikinglady.com ,a website devoted to hiking outdoors with neat tips and advice for the novice to the advanced hiker, was kind enough to review the lightload Towels. Below is what she wrote.

LightLoad Towels Review:

http://hikinglady.com/?s=lightload+Towels&submit.x=22&submit.y=12

“I never expected to see a wickable towel that is the size of a silver dollar, extremely durable, absorbent, AND quick drying…but the LightLoad Towels made by Dyna-E are just that. They got in touch with me and asked me to check out their LightLoad (12 x 24 inches/30 x 60 centimeters) towels and the LightLoad Beach Towel (36 x 60 inches) and I was pleasantly surprised. Before I became aware of LightLoad towels, I took either a bandana or a quick dry towel like the MSR face towel on backpacking trips. These towels are a better alternative because they are lighter, smaller (when in the package) and cheaper. Now I’ll be tossing at least one of the LightLoad Towels in my pack, and will keep one in my First Aid kit. They only weigh 0.6oz and take up virtually no space when packaged. LightLoad vs. Paper Towel Absorbency Because of their small size and light weight, I was expecting little more than a rough, flimsy towel that would not absorb anything. In fact, the LightLoads are just the opposite. When I pulled it out of the waterproof packaging, I tried my hardest to tear it, but to no avail. Then I used it to sop up some water, and the towel did the job well and became even softer after I used it. Plus, it was extremely easy to wring out the water. Additionally, the LightLoad Towel is advertised as “The Only Towel That Is A Survival Tool” – since I am not the greatest at starting campfires, I put a match to one of the towels I tested and it lit up immediately! Not surprising because they are 100% vicose, but this is great to have if camping. The only drawback is that it needs to be washed on a delicate cycle or handwashed (my washing machine was too rough for the Lightload Towel), and some other towels on the market can take more washing machine abuse. But given the size and price, I’m a fan of the LightLoad Towels! LightLoads are advertised to have even more uses including: Towel Washcloth Mask Fire Starter Insulation Diaper Wind/Winter Scarf First Aid Supplement Lightload Towels I also tried out the LightLoad Full Size Beach Towel. While I would not take it backpacking because it weights 5oz, it is great for a day at the beach, car camping, or an addition to your home emergency kit. It was a little bit harder to unpack than the small LightLoad Towels, but once I started using it to dry off it worked great.”

WICKABLE LIGHTLOAD TOWELS CHANGE THE WAY PEOPLE TRAVEL AROUND THE GLOBE

WICKABLE LIGHTLOAD TOWELS CHANGE THE WAY PEOPLE TRAVEL AROUND THE GLOBE Jamaica, New York (November 18, 2009)— Traveling light is a goal for many people, whether they’re going on an extended backpacking trip or a day trip to the mall. With this in mind, Lightload Towels were invented. The hallmark of Lightload Towels is their space-saving design and light weight in addition to the wickable fabric from which they are made. Packaged to fit a 2-inch diameter, the towels are small enough to fit in a pocket and still leave room for other incidentals like keys and a wallet. Lightload Towels open to a full 12” x 24” inch 30x60cm size. They weigh only ½ ounce or 17 grams each and are constructed from 100% viscose, a wickable fabric that draws excess moisture from skin. Wickable fabric is best for keeping warm in cold weather. The towels are an almost indispensable piece of gear for backpackers, campers, fishermen, hikers, bikers or anyone who travels outdoors, and now, after years of successful sales in the United States, Lightload Towels can now be purchased in Europe on amazon.de (Germany) and amazon.co.uk (United Kingdom). Less adventurous travelers will also appreciate the versatility and compact design of Lightload Towels, which can be used in hundreds of imaginative ways. They are useful as fire starters, scarves, insulation, first aid bandages and strainers. They can also be used to protect skin from wind and bugs or any time a traveler needs something to cover the ground to sit on. The towels are more absorbent than cotton, and they dry much faster. A single, machine washable towel can be used over and over again. Lightload Towels are also inexpensive at approximately $2 each. Buyers who purchase 12 towels or more can get a 50% discount using coupon code “50 per.” More information about this product can be found on the company’s website at http://www.ultralightloadtowels.com. Lightload Towels are also available in stores, online and in catalogues through retailers such as EMS, REI, Campmor and Paragon Sports They make excellent stocking stuffers for anyone who can benefit from a lightweight, compact “take-along” towel.
