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

Fantastic towels

They are extremely light weight, very big, durable, clean dirt well, and come in fun colors

As small and lightweight as I expected, but much stronger and better drying then I could have hoped for! Comes in really useful for lots of purposes and barely takes in any space or weight. I would buy it again for sure!

Multi use item not to left behind.

Super light, packable, and versatile. Recommend hydrating them before you head out though. Wipe sweat, use as a hot mit to pick up your pot, clean your cook pot, or as a initial water filter to keep the leaves or whatever out of your water bottle. I kept one and gave the other two to my sons. I believe it weighed .1 oz. why wouldn’t you take one on your next trip?!
