The only beach towels that fit in a pocket
The only beach towels that fit in a pocket

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.

Abandoning Ship? lightload Towels May Save the Day

You hope abandoning ship never happens. If it ever does you need to be prepared and having the right emergency gear in your flee bag can mean the difference between life and death. Items like line and hooks, inflatable vests, food, flares and lights are always good but also now experts are saying the lightload Towels are abandon ship bag worthy.

Mike lovett in the From the Experts section of Sailing World Magazine January 2009 issue says “you might be thankful for adding the Lightload Towels to your ditch bag.” He goes on to say “it fits easily in a ditch bag where you might call upon it to serve as insulation, as a bandage, or, thanks to the checkered graphics pattern, as a make shift chess board.”

‘Retired Flight Attendant still caring for passengers well being’

Helping air passengers arrive at their destination refreshed and rejuvenated has become a serious business for New Zealander Jill Gardner, who has spent over 30 years in the travel industry including a career as a flight attendant.

Through her website Travelcomfortable.com, Jill has established a very successful online shop of specialised products for ‘wellness’ while in the air and travel in general, complementing a worldwide trend for travellers to incorporate relaxation in their travels.

“With my industry background I am very aware of the negative effects of flying while confined to a small space for many hours, and in an artificial environment. Long haul flights are also becoming longer, with some services now flying over 14 hours,” said Gardner.

Confined seat space, fatiguing cabin noise and close proximity with other passengers call for products and remedies that make the journey more comfortable and healthful, she said. “Airlines do a great job getting passengers safely from A to B, but it is ultimately up to the individual to take care of their own health, comfort and well-being.”

Since starting two years ago, the Travelcomfortable.com ‘sky shop’ now lists over 70 products and a large number of sales are from overseas customers, elated to find such a choice of travel product at a one-stop shop. Items include motion sickness remedies and a versatile garment for travellers and mums with toddlers that is worn as a multiple-pocketed vest or used as a carry bag. The website even has a free gift wrapping service.

Going camping but don’t know what to bring?  Lightload Towels are the answer to your camping needs.  They pack down to the size of a quarter but unleashed they are large towels. Use them to wash dishes, hold hot pots, mop up spills, filter water, store food,  dry the body and hundreds of other applications .  Reuse them over and over not like paper towels that are done after a wipe. Lightloads also dry quickly and do not allow bacteria buildup like the bulky cotton towels. Lose it on the ground and no worries. Lightloads biodegrade very fast in the environment. They are available in two sizes, the beach towels 36×60 in(90×150 cm) and the smaller 12 x24(30 x60cm)Contact M. J.’s Depot
