One day I headed over to the water bend at our FOB (Forward Operating Base) and whipped out my Ultralite “PackTowl” from my back pocket and was using the corner of
it to scrub my face. Everyone was looking at me as they had their government issue towels around their neck. I then of course scrubbed what is left of my hair and neck cleaning up from being out in the field for several days and then ringed out the packtowl. Smiled at everyone as they watched and walked away. A couple of people came up to me afterwards and asked me what they heck was I using to clean with? I reached over and grabbed the packtowl and said, “here check it out.” WOW, they could not believe it! That this small towel could hold up to the standards of the US Military and take on that much water.
You know being in the Military and always out in the field makes you crazy when
you can not clean yourself up. Agree? Or there is that long line for the showers and etc. I hate it when I come in from the field after being out for a couple of days, and just need to clean up before eating and your towel the US Government issues you can not stand up to the grueling test. What do you do? I know it really sucks. Well there is always the baby wipes which is good for a little bit before they start to break apart from your 3 day beard!
But I can tell you that this company called Packtowl sells this awesome packtowl! Have you heard of it? This ultralite packtowl they sale really lives up to what it is made for and can stand up to any situation thrown at it! That is to dry you off or clean yourself up and then ring it out and then let it dry. Then all you do is pack it up and pack it away! This packtowl takes up little to no room at all! As small as you think it is, only folds out to handle any of your messes!
