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!’

New Labeling Hightlights Survival Features of Lightload Towels

  • New Labeling Highlights Survival Features of Lightload TowelsDyna-E International, producers of Lightload Towels (www.ultralighttowels.com) have announced the release of a new packaging design intended to give consumers a better idea of the product’s unique survival features.

    (PRWEB) November 19, 2009 — Dyna-E International, producers of Lightload Towels, have announced the release of a new packaging design intended to give consumers a better idea of the product’s unique survival features. The new label lists several novel uses for the compact, wickable towels that fit easily into a pocket or backpack for anyone who needs to travel light. Features highlighted on the new packaging include the fact that Lightload Towels are wickable and that they are the only towels that are survival tools. They can be used as insulation against cold weather, a mask, and even a diaper.

    “We believe that the new packaging will make it easier for people to understand how versatile the product is,” said George Wheeler, (President of Dyna-E International).

    The hallmark of Lightload Towels has always been their space-saving design, versatility and light weight. According to Wheeler, these are also the first wickable towels on the market. Packaged to fit a 2-inch diameter, the towels open to a full 12” x 24” inch 30x60cm size. They weigh only ½ ounce 18 grams each and are constructed from 100% viscose, a wickable fabric that draws excess moisture from the skin keeping one from freezing in cooler weather. Lightload Towels also come in a larger “beach towel” version.

    While wickable clothing is usually quite expensive, Lightload Towels are not. They are available at a cost of around $2 each, and buyers who purchase 12 towels or more can get a 50% discount using coupon code “50 per.” Now, after years of successful sales in the United States, Lightload Towels can also be purchased in Europe on amazon.de  (Germany) and amazon.co.uk (United Kingdom). More information about this product can be found on the company’s website at ultralighttowels.com. Lightload Towels are also available in stores, online and in catalogues through retailers such as EMS , REI , Campmor

    Toronados Ultralight Backpacking Gear Review of Lightload Towels

    Toronados ultralight backpacking site did a review of the lightload Towels. ” I
    got
    to test it out on a recent backpacking trip in Ojai, California where I put it through the not-so-tough paces of drying off my wet pot after cooking a meal and mopping up some spilled water on my groundcloth.

    After arriving home, I threw the lightload towel in the washing machine and dryer with my other gear. I found the result was a much softer version of the towel…and we’re talking feathery soft. There is minimal fraying, but nothing that would affect performance. It also results in a slightly larger size — 12.5 in by 22 in,” says Toronado.

    Toronados ultralight backpacking site
    is an extension of Tornado’s Ultralight Backpacking, a website dedicated to ultralight backpacking: the pursuit of great outdoor adventures with minimal weight on your back. Here you will find trail recipes, homemade gear info, gear reviews, cool new products, and inspiring outdoor musings. Enjoy!
    Toronados
    “philosophy is to go backpacking as light as possible without eliminating important items like a toothbrush or a first aid kit. I aim toward minimalism to lighten my pack, eliminating unnecessary items and keeping everything as simple as possible. I prefer low-tech bare essentials so that my gear is able to handle the abuse of the outdoors without constant coddling or repair.

    I don’t necessarily chase after the most recent breakthrough in ultralight gear or fabrics, but rather wait for ideas to prove themselves. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to have my pack under 5 pounds, but I don’t want to break the bank, and I want my gear to be reliable.”

    Pocket-Size lightload Beach Towels Pack a Big Punch

    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.
