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

    Light Weight Towels: A Must Have In A Backpacking Checklist

    Light Weight Towels:
    A Must Have In A Backpacking Checklist
    If you are going for a backpacking tour, the first thing you need to consider is that the luggage to be carried should be light. At the same time, you should not be compromising on the essential things that you need to carry. As you will have a single pack on your back, you will want to carry as many things as possible in the limited amount of space available. So, while preparing your backpacking checklist, make sure that you choose the items that are lightweight but serve the same purpose as their heavier counterparts.
    While packing your backpack, you will find that one of the items that consumes a lot of space is a towel. However, you can easily avoid carrying bulky towels by switching to LightLoad ones. Whether it is a beach towel or a hand towel, there are lightload towels available that are extremely small in size and can be converted into full size towels when they have to be used. These towels are not only light in weight but also save a lot of space in your suitcase, RV or backpack. You can keep them in your pockets and still have space for your money and keys.
    This feature makes them an essential travel accessory for outdoor camping. These towels can also be used as wind scarves, fire starters, bug repellants, insulators, sun blocks, masks and strainers. To deal with emergency situations, people can also include them in their toilet kits, first aid kits, cars, boats, hunting gear, camping equipment or hiking gear. Since you will not need to buy a separate first aid cloth, wind scarf or fire starter when you use a LightLoad Towels, you also end up saving a lot of money, space and weight.
    LightLoad Towels are an indispensable part of a backpacking checklist because of their numerous advantages. Some of the major advantages that these towels have over regular cotton towels are:
    LightLoad Towels are more absorbent when compared to cotton towels.
    • These are the only full size beach towels that can fit easily into a person’s pocket.
    • These towels can be used to serve more purposes than a traditional cotton towel.
    • They are very easy to store and consume lesser space than cotton towels.
    • They can sometimes be bigger than cotton towels.
    Because these towels are extremely cost effective and cheap, they can easily be used and thrown away if you do not want to carry the extra burden of a towel once it has been soiled. If you do not want to waste them, you can wash them and reuse them for a number of times. At the end of the trip, you can discard them off so that you do not need to carry back the burden.
    You also do not need to worry about drying LightLoad Towels because after washing, they dry up very easily and quickly. It is a product which is biodegradable and does break down in the environment rapidly. The towel can also be burned or composted in a compost heap thus you do not need to worry about any after effects, once it is thrown off. All these reasons make light load towels one of the most favorable options that need to be ticked off as you prepare your backpacking checklist.

    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.

    ‘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.
