The Schlack beach towel springs out and repels sand

By  | 


Beach towels have always been a bit of a faff.

But one company thinks it has come up with the perfect solution – a spacious towel-like ‘mat’ that springs out from its 20-inch circular case, rather like a pop-up tent, to a spread three times the diameter. 

The Schlack, which has already doubled its funding goal on Kickstarter, is made of a velour-blend fabric which repels sand and won’t get soggy – making sunbathing a whole lot less messy.

The Schlack – which will retail for around £50 – has compartments inside the carrying case to store valuables discreetly, and comes with a small matching towel with which to dry off. 

It owes its ‘popping out’ motion to a galvanized spring steel frame – meaning it won’t blow around when you’re laying it down or packing it up.

The colourful mat, according to creator Or Reznik from Tel Aviv, Israel, has a heavy-duty bottom layer lining which means you can take it camping, or use it indoors as a baby play mat.

While the Schlack may be the first pop-up beach mat of its kind, it’s not the only ‘sand-resistant’ towel to have emerged of late.

One Australian entrepreneur says he’s invented a beach towel that will not transfer sand from the beach to anywhere else, dubbed the Sandusa.

Baz Brown, who spent five years on his design, utilises ‘patent protected technology’ which prevents water seeping through the towel and sand sticking to the underside. 

And unlike a normal beach towel where the sand can get trapped in the loopy fibres, apparently the Sandusa’s smooth nylon backing allows sand to ‘slip off easily, leaving it dry and sand-free’.  

All the more reason to head to the shores.
