Wow! That’s a towel? You got to be kidding me. It’s so compact. Yes, it’s a full-size hand towel compressed to the size of a silver dollar, great for space and weight saving. Add water to the towel then behold, it unfolds too full-size. They absorb like a sponge about nine times it’s weight and quick dries. The towels are also good for cooling and insulation. Lightload Towels can also be used as first aid, static electricity insulation, tinder, padding, a mask and more. The packaging is 100 % waterproof. These 12x12 inch towels weigh .2oz: great add-ons to survival bags, emergency kits, prepper gear, backpacks, and travel luggage.
