Personal PackTowl

How to dry yourself on a Walkabout.

Towels often are not standard in budget lodgings. And they certainly are not supplied at campgrounds or the deserted beaches you've discovered. If you're carrying your world on your back, an ordinary towel simply does not work. It's heavy, especially when wet, and takes forever to dry. The solution: PackTowels. Perhaps the ultimate sports and travel towel, silky-soft Packtowel Personal are perfect for face, hand, and body use. They are super-lightweight, ultracompact, and fast-drying. Color: Blue. Weight: 8.5 oz.; size: 25 x 54 in.

Travel Sewing Kit

First Law of Travel: Pack Light.

Whether your Walkabout is for two weeks or a year, all the experts, including us, say to pack light. In other words, take minimal clothing.

The saying goes that a gram of prevention is worth a kilo of cure, and the weight ratios are correct when you carry our Sew and Stow pocket-sized sewing kit. Includes various colored thread, needles, threader, replacement buttons, safety pin, all in tiny carrying case. Lightweight, and inexpensive.
