DaddyWaddyWeeviews.BlogSpot.com – Lightload Towels Review

Information about the Lightload Towels Company.
For years the founder George “Wideload” (trail moniker) Wheeler has been an avid long distance hiker.  In 1999 he completed the 2160-mile Appalachian Trail (A.T.).  The year after, he hiked the 540 miles of Virginia to West Virginia on the A.T all over again.  It was an incredible experience repeated. It was in on his ’99 Thru hike that he got the idea for Lightload Towels
Finally just this past year “Wideload”  hiked the 270-mile Long Trail in Vermont from the Canadian border to the Mass-Vermont border. It’s the oldest long distance hiking trail and was conceived on Stratton Mountain, Vermont the same place that the Appalachian Trail was given birth to some years later. This also was very magical and he hopes one day to redo the adventure.
He also spent about eight years living in Asia. There he had the opportunity to lead hikes in Taiwan and do hikes in Nepal, Pakistan and China. During this time he learned how to speak Chinese.
Another fondness he has is camping.  He has spent time in many of America’s national forests including the Ochoco (Oregon), Davy Crockett (Texas), San Francisco (New Mexico), Willamette (Oregon), Piedmont (Alabama), Desoto (Mississippi), Allegheny (Pennsylvania) Green Mountain (Vermont) and many others.
I had the chance to check out the Lightload Towel. I thought this is an interesting towel when it came in the mail. I had to open it to see what it was all about. Okay, so this towel can fit in your back pocket. You open the package and it is in a little round like hockey ball. I pull it open into a full-sized towel. Then I see you can use this towel for many purposes. If you are on a trip or camping, you can use it to wipe off sweat from your face or clean up a mess. You can use it in the garage to clean your hands or most anything. The towel is inexpensive and it is pretty tough. I started gardening and this towel would be great to put on the ground, so I keep my knees from getting bruised or cut on the ground. I am impressed by this towel. This is so compact,but you could use it for anything you need a towel for. I can even see myself using it to clean off my hands while fishing. This is a cool idea.I might even use it as a pillow on our long trip from Florida to the Kentucky Derby later this week.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Blog.ConcertKatie.com – Product Review: Lightload Towels

World Renowned Lightload Towels are the only beach towels that fit in your pocket! All our towels are survival tools. Use them for so much including a firestarter, face mas, insulation, diaper and more. The towels are soft against the skin and washable. Great for packing in small places and excellent for shedding weight.

While these towels have all sorts of fun uses, I opted to go for the boring one – using it for a towel when I got out of the shower. (In my defense, my next vacation where I would have loved to pack it isn’t until mid-May and I wanted to be able to offer a giveaway which has to be done before the end of April!)  While the instructions do say that getting the towel a little bit wet would help in puling it apart, I opted to not use any water as I didn’t want a wet towel when I got out of the water. Seemed counter productive to be using something wet when I was trying to dry myself off!

The towel is super light weight which made me wonder if it would really work, but it does! I dried me off just as well, if not better, than other beach towels I usually use.  I wasn’t sure that it would survive the washer / dryer, but it did! It came out even more soft than it already was and wasn’t ripped at all which was what I was expecting because it is so light!

 

 

ItzyBellaBaby.BlogSpot.com – Lightload Towels Review and Giveaway

I recently had the opportunity to review Lightload towels. 

I have a toddler, so my purse and her baby backpack is always full to capacity with “just in case” items.  It was very appealing to have something that could absorb toddler messes and not have to carry something heavy to make it happen.

 

We decided to open this one on a day when we were stuck in a waiting room. I needed a diversion and fast. The toddler was successfully diverted.

 

She enjoyed opening the package and kept exclaiming it was a puck until I got it unwrapped, and she saw it became a towel. I am afraid of what she might do the next time she gets a hold of a hockey puck.

 

Here is the towel in stages of unfolding.

 

As you can see, it has a logo printed on it, and it really was crammed into that little piece of plastic.
The company sent me the following info:
“World renowned Lightload Towels are the only beach towels that fit in your pocket. All our towels are survival tools. Use them for so much including a firestarter, face mask, insulation,diaper and more. The towels are soft against the skin and washable. Great for packing in small places and excellent for shedding weight.”
True to advertising, it was absorbent. Had the toddler made some mess, I would have been able to clean it up with this and be pretty content. I don’t know that I would use it on her skin. It is very scratchy, and I am certain she would be angry with me. It does soften up with water added, but it has to touch you for that to happen right?
For adults though, I think it could be very useful as a sports towel or for hunting or other active sports. I did not wash it in the washing machine, but it did hand wash fine. It is no longer puck shaped though, so the toddler is not as interested in it.. 😉
My new use for it will be in my hockey bag. It is imperative to dry your skates after each use, and this towel is going to be fantastic for that purpose. It takes up no space in my bag.
The others that I received will go back in the toddler bag for wet emergencies!
Thanks so much to Lightload for letting me test these out! Now here is your chance!

Lightload Towels comes packed in clear plastic case with all the information written over the cardboard. These are available in three sizes– Beach towels 36×60 inch assorted colors three pack 12 x24 inch assorted colors two packs 12 x12 inch assorted colors. I chose three pack 12×24 inch packs. It consists of three towels packed in a plastic wrapper. It has waterproof packaging and is quite light. It can be easily carried around in a bag or pocket.
As soon as you unwrap the packaging, you will find a small disc shaped cloth which feels really hard and rough to the touch. You simply need to throw it in a bowl of water and it would open up revealing its full size. I used it as a washcloth to remove face mask or when I do the oil cleansing method. It feels soft and gentle on the skin and removes all oil and mask off the skin without leaving a residue behind. Few days back, I spilled hair oil all over my hands and legs and I simply soaked the towel in a bowl of warm water. I then used it to wipe off the oil and within a minute there was no oil on my skin. It absorbs water quickly and it is a great tool when you travel. I carry it with me everywhere and wipe off my face with it and all I get is fresh and clean skin.

AaronsEnvironmental.com – Lightload Puck-sized Beach Towel

crop_c9da58fdddd51ec1ee46d8e0f873a315a2bd9948c678882f99c5795eb9711806a9b92200256256I’m a sucker for gimmicks. Things like the Pocket Fisherman (used one all through Boy Scouts!), long-reach pincers, and such like are things I always love playing with and often wonder “why didn’t I think of that?” When I first saw these “pocket beach towels,” I thought of them the same way. “What a cool gimmick!”

Amazingly, though, they’re more than that. They’re actual, usable towels that can be washed and used repeatedly, not one-off, flimsy, paper-thin things meant for “emergencies.”

The towel arrives in a packet that is about the size of a hockey puck. This fits in any pocket, making it very useful. Of course, I didn’t leave it in the package for long and opened it up to see what it was like. The compact little vacuum-packed puck pulled apart (add a dribble of water to make this easier) into a big towel that was far thicker than expected. Since I don’t live where there are beaches, I found other uses for it.

Namely, it’s an exceedingly absorbent auto shammy. Ya, this probably isn’t what the manufacturer thought of when they made this towel, but even after use, a wash, and more use, this little towel is easy to roll up tightly (when dry) and keep in a nook in the car to use as a chamois for drying and touch-ups. Given that my profession is “automotive journalist” and I often need to touch up the cleanliness of test vehicles in order to take photos, this is a perfect use for me and the Lightload towel fits the role perfectly.

Even if you plan on just carrying it in your jacket or pants pocket “just in case” you end up at the beach, it’s still a great little product. Awesome idea that is far more than the gimmick I expected.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Lilagniappe.com – Tools for Surviving a Zombie Apocalypse – Lightload Towels

I am a huge Walking Dead fan. The Walking Dead is the only show on TV that I actually watch live rather than DVR-ing to skip commercials. I can’t wait for it to record! Hubby is the same way and it is now tradition for us to watch in the dark with one of my homemade popcorn recipes. Naturally, we then discuss what we would need in a zombie apocalypse (besides Daryl) and I’ve found a new must have product. Lightload towels are a necessity! They are completely transportable, super absorbent, and have to be Beth’s secret in how she keeps her hair so clean. Where does that girl keep all of her secret hair products? I mean, seriously!

Lightload Beach Towels

Lightload towels are also incredibly energy efficient from cradle to grave in that they use so little energy for carrying, washing and eventual disposal. They are also reusable as the product description on Amazon states, “The towels are reusable and will last until they don’t.” That’s product testimony right there! I’ve used my for bathing our princess puppy twice and it isn’t sowing any signs of breaking down. I just drape my Lightload towel over the side of the tub to dry after use. These dry so quickly that I can use it again the very next day.

So getting these in the mail I was puzzled and a little bit skeptical. These “towels” are mighty small. Seriously they are the size of a half dollar. My hubby was likewise looking at me crazy. However I am a good sport and set about following instructions.  I headed over to the bathroom and after kicking teenage girls out, with loud protests I might add, I got to work!
 
 
 
First step run some water. Sink, tub, bottled water, whatever is on hand. If you are out camping or in the wilderness a stream, lake will do. At the beach? No problem, hit the waves.
 

 

 
It started growing! Pretty cool. I was excited to see it start puffing out into a towel. 
 
 
Now look at that! A full size working cloth. It is washable also, so you will get lots of uses out of just one. Lightload towels also can be used as Beach Towels, which is pretty exciting for this beach going gal.  Instead of having bulky towels to tote around everywhere simply slip these in your bag. Space saver! All their towels are survival tools. Use them for so much including a firestarter, face mask, insulation,diaper and more. The towels are soft against the skin and washable. Great for packing in small places and excellent for shedding weight.

OutdoorAdventureGals.com – Lightload Towels Review & Giveaway

103_0550

When I am hiking or backpacking, I’m always looking for ways to lighten my load. I usually hike for several hours and I like to be prepared for anything but I don’t like my pack to get too heavy. I’ve tried carrying disposable wipes but they usually aren’t strong enough or big enough to get off the grime from a muddy or dusty hike.

I’ve really needed something lightweight with substance that I can rinse out and use again. It saves pack weight to take a reusable product over disposable products.

Lucky for me I was given the chance to review Lightload Towels.

Lightload towels are small enough to fit in the palm of my hand and my hand is not big. They are wrapped tight in waterproof packaging which makes them the perfect week long backpacking companion. I’m thinking ahead to my planned summer backpacking trip. Each towel weighs less than an ounce dry. It hardly takes any space in my backpack and weighs less than disposable wipes.

I found a stream to use for getting my towel wet. I dropped my towel tablet in and as it absorbed water, it turned into a lightweight hand towel that measures 12 x 24 inches. I was surprised at the size. I expected it to be smaller but it is a perfect size. I like that it will easily fit inside a first aid kit.

Though the towel is thin and lightweight, it is durable for scrubbing dust and mud off the skin. I had no problem getting the mud off my face that I had rubbed on. Though I tried it on a wet, snowy day, it seems like it would dry fairly quickly. It didn’t get too cold to use on a snowy day. It would be easy to pack out or burn after it wears out.
It is made with a 100% viscose material, which is the same material a sponge is made of.

When I was finished using the towel, I crumpled it up and put it in a mesh pocket on the outside of my backpack. It didn’t get my backpack wet. If I were on an overnight hike, I would reuse the towel a few times, and let it burn in the campfire at the end of my trip.

I can’t even begin to list the many uses for the Lightload Towels. They would be great to keep in a car for spills.
I like the idea of keeping them with my first aid kit. Since they are individually wrapped, I would trust using them on a cut or scrape for bleeding.

It’s not very often I find such a handy product less the $10 for a package of three. It’s worth buying several packages to keep around. Besides hiking, I am planning on keeping some around for camping and in our ATV’s.

My favorite features of the Lightload Towels.

  • Lightweight
  • Waterproof packaging
  • Many uses
  • Durable
  • Inexpensive
  • Good for variety of outdoor activities.

There was nothing I disliked about the towels. Therefore a 5 star rating.

Product Rating: ★★★★★
