LightLoad Towels

with one comment


A handy item for your next bike tour: Lightload Towels

These aren’t the towels you will want to take to the shower but they weigh almost nothing, take no space, and are very handy. I like them a lot more than I ever though I would, they work fine as a face towel, cleaning up pots, as a cloth to take the water off your bike in the morning or a rag to deal with bike grime and grease.

They are quite absorbent, sturdy and fairly soft but pretty thin for a towel. One neat thing about them is they are about the size of a thick wooden half dollar when you get them. They easily uncompressed when you need them.

The Lightload Towel price at Campmor is $5.49 for 3.

Here’s Campmor’s write up on them:

Lightload towels weigh a mere 1/2 oz. and are incredibly versatile. They are made of 100% viscose. They are super absorbent, quick drying and have multiple uses such as, towels, washcloth, pot holder, pack padding, water or coffee strainer, neck or headband, fire starter, first aid supplement, condensation cleaner and many more. They are reusable, machine washable and biodegradable. 12 in. x 24 in. 1/2 oz. each. 3 per pack and each towel is packed in water resistant packaging.
