    Item # 733411

    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Lightload Towels Beach Towel - 60" x 36" is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Taken on mission trip to Haiti.. Twice As space and weight were a concern, I thought I would give these a try. I was pleasantly surprised at how well these towels work. They are huge and suck up water like a sponge. They dry relatively quickly (even in the hi g h humidity of Haiti) and are extremely strong considering how lite weight. On both trips it was my only towel for 12 days. My team mates were so impressed on our first trip that most people brought one on the second trip. My wife took one to Africa for a mission trip and loved it. She brought it back and it has survived being washed in the washing machine. You do need to get it wet to unravel the first use bug wring it out at it is almost instantly dry. Great Product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for backpacking Planning on using these for a backpacking trip with my kids to the coast of Lake Michigan I wasn't sure what to expect based on the reviews. I tend to go ultra-light so I decided any trade-off in terms of weight was going to be worth it especially since I was going to be lugging my kids gear as well. I agree with other reviewers who said you have to wash these before use. They are essentially made of the same material as a reusable dishtowel - a little heavier than that. I washed 3 of them in a front-load washer on hand-wash cycle and they came out fine. I would wash them alone and probably hand-wash if I had a top-loader to avoid damaging them. Dried on the lowest setting (again alone) they came out soft and undamaged. Looking forward to the field-test but I am confident they will perform well and they are cheap, big and super-light!
