I have never heard of this company before, so when I was contacted by them to do this review, I was somewhat curious. Lightload towel is a company that makes towels that are small enough to take anywhere with you. They come in a small disc with plastic wrapped around them, the size of a quarter, small enough to take anywhere with you and fits in your pocket, backpack, purse.
No one would guess its a towel. Its so small and cute. Once you take it apart its pretty big. They have different towels and the most common one is the banana one. Take this towel with you if you jog, hike , camping , you can use it to dry off after you wash up in the creek, dry off your cooking things. Lightload towels are inexpensive towels and come in handy! It does have like a paper towel feel when you first take it out. But its a lot stronger than one. The towels are soft against the skin and washable.
These towels are perfect for the person who does not want to carry a big towel with them all over the place. Like I said they fit anywhere in your purse, pocket, backpack, anywhere.
About the company
For years the founder George “Wideload” 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.
