|Anyone planning a trip for business or pleasure is sure to appreciate the advantages of traveling light. For those looking for a solution to packing overload, there is a product with the answer right in its name! Lightload Towels, the brainchild of Dyna-E-International’s George Wheeler, were created for backpackers, but these versatile, lightweight towels are great for travelers of all kinds. They are ideal for adventure travelers like kayakers and hunters that need to pack light, but they are so easy to carry that even those who are flying to upscale hotels abroad can benefit from including Lightload towels in their carry-on luggage.Lightload towels are made of 100% viscose and come in two sizes. The original Lightload Towels come in two-inch diameter packaging that expands to a full 12 x 24 inches. Larger Lightload Beach Towels are packed in a 3-½ inch diameter that fully expands to 3 feet by 5 feet. The pack towels fit easily into camping gear, backpacks, carry-on bags, picnic baskets, purses and glove compartments so that travelers always have a towel within reach. Highly absorbent but weighing only ½ ounce, they can be used for everything from drying dishes in a campground to cleaning up spills in a hotel room. A must for adventure travelers, many tour group operators include Lightload Towels on their lists recommend items. Travelers have reported a variety of “in a pinch” uses for Lightload towels. They can be used as picnic blankets or to cover the ground to sit on, and those who travel by car find them essential glove compartment gear. “They slip right into the corner of my glove box, and I have used them many times to mop up coffee spilled during long road trips,” one man said.Lightload Beach Towels are a must for beach bums, especially when a spontaneous day trip becomes the agenda. Much lighter than bulky cotton beach towels, these compact, comfortable towels are more absorbent and take up a fraction of the space in a beach bag. Lightload Beach Towels also dry more quickly and can be rinsed out with ease. For campers, hikers, rock climbers and other outdoors travelers, Lightload Beach towels can be used as body wraps while laundry is being done. The towels can also be used as a blanket or head wrap to provide insulation from both cold and heat. Either size towel can be used for first aid or as a signal flag in an emergency. Both the original Lightload Towel and Lightload Beach Towels are soft on skin, machine washable and extremely durable. The towels easily fit any traveler’s budget at only about two dollars for pack towels and $6.50 for beach towels. More information about Lightload Towels, including how to order, can be found on the company’s website at http://www.ultralighttowels.com. Lightload towels are also available in stores, online and in catalogues through retailers that include EMS, REI, Campmor|
The Harvard Mountaineering Club Borkoldoy Expedition 2005 used thirty Lightload Towels provided by Dyna-E International. The towels were used for everything from sponge-baths to cleaning up after the sheep, though generally not both. First-person descriptions follow.
DYNA-E LIGHTLOAD TOWELS
Laura Fox: Definitely small and light – no complaints there. I didn’t find too many occasions to use the towels. On one occasion I took a sponge bath. I noticed that they tear when they freeze. I had used one and left it to dry on some rocks, and it froze overnight, and I was unable to remove it from the rocks without ripping it and leaving little patches of towel behind on the rock.
Lucas Laursen: The towels certainly didn’t take up more than their share of the expedition’s half ton of equipment. I didn’t have to use them for much, but the one time I did use them, to soak up sheep urine and feces in our truck, I was glad I had them. The sheep, on the other hand, was indifferent.
George Brewster: Kicked ass for changing my oil a couple days ago. Also, should be a little larger so you can actually wear it as a bandana.
David Krause: Useful adjuncts for sudden spills, sheep urine, etc. Small and light, but they don’t offer much coverage or durability. Too small to be the main towel for a trip, but excellent in the cook kit or as a washcloth. Great addition to a toiletries kit for long trips, carried in the pockets on bus rides. Anyone raising a child should carry a bucket of them around.
Corey Rennell: I found the towels to be an excellent and useful expedition tool. From swabbing up spills on the floor of our off-road vehicle to taking sponge baths to cleaning up dinner messes to assist our Leave No Trace philosophy, Dyna E towels did the trick. They’re compact, light, easy to carry and fit in small pockets and an important wilderness safety firestarter especially in places like the Borkoldoy where there’s little wood.
Kelly Faugnan: The towels should definitely be larger, so they can be used as a bandana. Since they are so light, a bit of extra cloth will not add that much to weight and will make them more versitile.
Thanks for the donation of 50 packages of three Lightload Towels. We
will be giving these out at our annual meeting November 6, 2004. The
newsletter out the first of the year will have a thank you with your
company named sent to the entire membership – about 450 members.

were a hit of course. We used them from everything from:
Soaking it in the glacial streams and tying it around our necks to
Straining silt out of glacial water before drinking it
“bath towel” on those days that we had personal hygiene days
One was actually used to create a molotov cocktail during one of the
summit celebrations-not sure that is a credible use, but it was in practice
The list keeps going on as well. I hope that things are well!

“Getting ready to take a trip to Mexico and beach towels take up so much room…Love the idea of the compact towel that I can pack to take with me but at the same time it is biodegradable so I can just throw it away before I come home..”. Josie
“was given 3-pack a couple of years ago as a stocking stuffer gift from my father-in-law (I suspect he found them at BackpackingLight or REI) and I’ve since picked up another 3-pack with nearly every REI order. I’ve found them to be useful in a wide range of activities first aid kit, survival kit, backpacking and camping. Of course, their packability can’t be matched – a huge perk for those of us crammed into small quarters in NYC. I decided that this year, I would add. them to reusable bags as my stocking stuffer gifts – and have a supply left over for me. Thanks”Mike
