‘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.

Military travel just got a lot easier with the Lightload Towels.  Tipping the scale at just .5 oz and packaged so small that you can put ten 12 x 24 inch towels in your hand with room to spare, Lightload Towels are the quintessential gear. Use them for drying also as a fire starter, wind scarf, first aid supplement, water filter and hundreds of other uses. Known as “a cool tool” Lightloads are great survival gear.

Many Army and Navy Stores around the country already carry Lightload Towels and Atlanco in Atlanta distributes them to these stores.

This is how you win wars.

Travels in India with a lightload in the pocket

I did a google search for camping towels (and travel towels, where I didn’t find anything). In India (where I live), when one travels it is customary that towels are not provided, even in most hotels and when visiting friends. Travelers lug them around! And have to dry them!
It is unpleasant to lug around regular towels, especially in the Himalayas, since one wants to travel as lightly as possible. So I was looking for something super lightweight that dries quickly. I looked in stores first. Most are small, and rather expensive. Then I looked on the internet, and other brands are significantly more expensive. This is just what I was looking for. I am going to give some as gifts to people who travel to India and who live there.
Best wishes,

Lightload towel Vs. A MSR Pack Towel of the Same Size.

I recently led a hike in the Bear Mt. area with two of my teenage nephews. We field tested a small Lightload towel against as MSR pack towel of the same size. Both towels absorb the same as we found while drying off tent flies after a rainy night. But a distinct advantage of the Lightload is that you can ring much more water out of the fabric than the MSR, therefore making it more absorbant after the initial use, which allowed it to dry much faster than the MSR.

The Lightload was used, dryed by hanging on pack, and then re-used 4 times, while at days end, and after only 1 use, the MSR was still damp and heavy. The Lightload also, obviously packs smaller. Time and again, when we needed to dry something, such as ourselves after cooling off in a stream, we reached for the Lightload. Also, the LL is a fraction of the price of the MSR. The only catagory where the MSR may be superior is durability, but we can continue extended field tests to determine the durability of the Lightload.

 

Product Review: lightload Towels is a New Horse First Aid product

My daughter is the barn director at a horse camp and she’s been using some of my Lightload Towels for horse mishaps the last few weeks.  Horses are always getting scratched on trees, biting each other, getting kicked, and so forth – horses will be horses, and this camp has about 65 horses.  The towels are great for cleaning out the wounds the horses get.  They are individually wrapped so all the dust from the barn doesn’t get in them, they are soft, large and disposable.  Perfect for horse first aid.  I was running low anyway and was about to order more so I put in an order for two tubs this time so I could give one to my daughter to put with the first aid supplies at the horse stable.
