Lead Time In Stock

Lightload towels are the lightest, and most useful pack towels available. They come packed in a small cylinder, and unfold to about 12.5" x 22.5" (32 x 57 cm). They are super absorbent, and very quick drying. Imagine a name brand paper towel, except that these are cloth, reusable, hand washable, and biodegradable.

Don’t forget your towel!

Colors: Miscellaneous

  • The weight can vary slightly from .5 to .6 ounces. (~14 grams). If half an ounce is too heavy for you, cut it in half!

  • Dry completely off after swimming or taking a shower. Just wring it out and keep drying.

  • Wipe condensation or rain from a tarp or tent before packing.

  • Absorb moisture from wet clothing, improving drying time.  

  • Wash and/or dry dishes. 

  • Use it as a napkin.  

  • Tie a rock in it and throw it over a branch for your bear bag.

  • Wear it as a headband. 

  • Cut it into blister padding, or bandages.  

  • Use it as a pot holder.  

  • Start a fire with it when nothing else is dry.

Ultralight but many failures

Purchased 3 packs for ultralight 3 week family hike on the AT. Frame parts began to break after only 5 days. All packs were about 20 pounds. Belt attachment bar broke on one. Support rods broke on all of them. Normal pack use on AT
