Lightload Puck-sized Beach Towel

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

6d39aae8ff6c660ae44f7790e7e01bd6e0017991I’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.

I was discussing with my friends about what was in my emergency kit when I came across lightload towels & I thought they would make a great addition to any survival kit, emergency disaster supply kit or first aid kit & I am so happy to get to try these towels & to spread the word about them to my fans, family & friends. So friends pay attention because I think you might just want to get some of these towels.

The Only Towels That Are Survival Tools!
-Wickable Fabric so keeps you from freezing in Cold Activities!
-More Absorbent than Cotton and Microfiber!
-Waterproof Packaging so Always have a Clean Dry Cloth in the Outdoors!
-Ultralight-weight and superior for packing into small spaces!

I was sent the 3 pack of hand towels to try & do this review & giveaway for (12X24″30X60CM HAND SIZE), but Lightload makes varying sizes so check them all out. When the 3 pack arrived the towels were in small packs about the size of a 50 cent piece only kinda thicker, very conventional for storing & carrying easily, & I love the packaging is waterproof so no need to replace often. So we proceeded to open one so we could try it out. At first I had a bit of a time getting it unfolded but It took my teen daughter to tell me I was doing it wrong & wha la it was open & ready for use.

The world renowned Lightload Towels are the only towels that are survival tools. Use them as a towel, wash cloth fire starter, first aid supplement, diaper, insulator, static electricity insulator, mask and more. Each piece packs down to 1.5″ in diameter and 5.75″ in girth and .25″ in. width..They’re great for storing in tight spaces like suitcases and small pouches.
They weigh a mere .6oz so you’ll find them helpful where weight is a concern like in travel or backpacking.

Right away I noticed how lightweight the towels were, kinda like those thin paper towels like mechanics use might be the closest comparison without totally being like them. We found light load towels to be very absorbent & able to absorb more fluid & hold it that any ordinary paper towel ever could, all while being thin, lightweight, strong & durable. We even washed & dried it several times, I do not think it would last through to many washes but it is great for 1 or 2 uses & emergency use.

Waterproof packaging covers each piece. Because of this  you’ll always have a clean dry cloth  for good hygiene, personal care and first aid.
The material is 100 percent viscose and made from cellulose(not oil, like microfiber) acts as a sponge and absorbs up to nine times it’s weight in water. They are also very energy efficient needing little energy to carry, wash and dispose of. Add water to the towel or start wiping water off of you to soften and open easier. They’re very comfortable against the skin and are also great for indoor gyms and spas. In caring for the Lightloads hand washing is best.You can reuse them. They last until they don’t.

So I am very happy to tell you about these towels & I hope you will find them as interesting & as useful as I did, I wish I had these towels when my kids were younger, what a lifesaver they would have been so many times. I am also happy to now know about this company & to be able to spread the word, so many of my friends are looking for just this type of product.

This three pack is a great gift and is easily mailed. Colors of the towels are assorted.You golfers can freeze to make a cold towel.
Being great as a game piece too on rainy days,  you can use as a checkerboard piece or puck. Boy Scouts and kid campers love this feature.
Lightload Towels have been written about in many magazines including Climbing Magazine, Bike Magazine and Sailing Magazine.

OUR REVIEW:  I love this brand of compact towels.  They are made of a great material – thin and soft, and super absorbent.  The beach towel is the size of a hockey puck, making it easy to pack.  It turns into a towel as soon as it hits the water.  It took about 2 minutes total to become beach towel size.  I hung it out to dry and it was dry rather quickly.  This is perfect for traveling, backpacking or camping!!  I have used other brands of this type of towel and this one is much better.  I highly recommend.

I have tried out so many of these “type ” of towels and let me tell you, these lightload towels are amazing!!!. I love how they come in the little compact packs that can fit neatly anywhere, such as your pocket, beach bag, purse, hunting pack, and glove compartment. I love how there are so many awesome different uses like a fire started, a towel, a rag, as a bandage for an emergency , oh my gosh there are so many uses. I love the size of the towel as well, I was actually surprised at how big it got, I was not expecting something of this size to come out of a little pack. I liked pulling it apart and it just kept growing.


This is where I started pulling the towel apart. It really started to stretch. Then is the size it became when fully extended. As, you can see it does become quite large. I tried to refold it but that did not work so I have the opened one in my car glove box for just encase you never know emergencies.

Cassandra’s Review-  Lightload Towels are amazing. I think of them like those old toy animals that used to come out of capsules when you soak them in water. It is a way cooler thing to watch this product in action.  All it take is a little water and bam you have your self a towel. It is in this great compact disc form and now that I know about this product, I will make sure to have one in my home and car. I would highly recommend checking these out and picking up a few for your family or friends.

Lightload Full Size Beach Towel Review + Giveaway 4/28 US

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

When we go to the beach, I would always pack 4 towels. One for me, my hubby and one each for my 2 daughters. These towels would take up if not the whole backpack, almost three-fourths of it.So when I received the Lightload Towels, I was surprised that a very small and very light “puck” looking thing can become a 36 x 60 inch beach towel! 🙂

Now for this review, I wouldn’t be able to show you how the Lightload Full Size Beach Towel works or how big it is since I am planning to save it on our trip to the beach BUT I promise to make another review, complete with pictures, when we go to the beach and get the chance to actually use it. 🙂 I will however describe it in its “puck” form on this post. 🙂

The Full Size Beach Lightload Towels weigh only 5 oz. or 114 grams when it’s in its “puck” form. The packaging is waterproof so I won’t have to worry about expanding it if I accidentally spill water on it. To expand it to it’s full size, water is needed to soften and expand it. The size of the towel expands to 36 x 60 inches when it’s fully opened. I can’t believe it’s also reusable and can be tossed in the dryer. I don’t think I can put it back to it’s original “puck” form when opened but I’m glad that I can hand wash it so that I can use it again.
