Strong hiker demand is prompting retailers along the Appalachian Trail to increase stocks of Lightload Towels this Spring Season. There is a high concentration of outlets selling the towels in the region.
Increased sales reflect the fact hikers know that Lightload Towels boost performance. As thousands of thru-hikers embark on the lengthy, grueling 2160 mile journey to Maine along the spine of AmericaÂs toughest mountains, it quickly becomes apparent that the lighter the load the greater the chance of success.
Lightload Towels provide the perfect solution for lightweight hiking. Weighing only .5 ounces, Lightload Towels are the lightest towels on the market. They also have multiple uses-they can be used as a fire starter, bandage for wounds and a coffee filter.
The towels are sold in three packs and individually. Three packs are the best sellers. Backpackers pack them in their cookware, first aid kit and bath accessories while still coming out lighter than other towels. The waterproof packaging enables the user to have a dry piece of cloth on them in any wet situation. ÂIt sells itself,Â says a store manager of Eastern Mountain Sports, which has three stores along the trail selling Lightload Towels.
Other stores that carry Lightload Towels along the trail are Campmor NJ.,Three Eagles Outfitters Tn., Mount Rogers Outfitters Va.,The Happy Hiker Tn., Mahoney Outfitters Tn., ShawÂs Guest House Me., Abol Bridge Campground Me., Omer and Bob's Sports Shop NH., Two Rivers Canoe and Tackle Me., Alpine Shop Me., Rockfish Gap Outfitters Va.,and Housatonic River Outfitters Ma.
