Rated 5 out of 5 by gottabecomfy Love these!!!
First off, I have realized, that towels are a bit like pillows..everybody is different in what they like and very picky! I am the same. These towels were suggested by a rep over the phone letting me know they were on sale. She said she personally loved them for the way they felt so soft, but were absorbent. Sounded like a winner to me, as my hubby and I complain about our various pricy thick cotton towels seemingly never drying out,even overnight and washing/changing daily. Yes, they do feel a little "slick" I guess what other reviewers are saying that don't like them, but we quickly got used to the "lighter" feel, not slick. And they are "ultra absorbent", and dry quickly. Not that I don't wash or change towels frequently, but they dry fast hanging on your towel rack. I love the various colors. Ordered the blue stripe ones first, and loved them so much, just ordered the periwinkle ones and a mat. Couldn't be happier with these! Now we don't switch back to the thicker ones, but have, and we are spoiled by these light, but soft and luxurious feeling ones! So to each his/her own, but hey, Bean takes back anything anytime you don't like it, so no worries.

I have never spent more than $10 for a towel, but I had accumulated $70 of LLBean coupons, and felt entitled to indulge in REAL towels, which would only cost me 5 bucks. And now I know why one would spend $25 on a towel! These are delicious! Soft, super-absorbent, delightful! I'm enjoying drying off as much as I enjoyed taking a shower!

the on line picture doesn't do the color justice. the mat is a slight different color depth than the towels but I could see that on-line. no biggy. only reason I did not give excellent is not able to discern how they will wear as yet. these were a gift. I am pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Banjo2 Ultra Absorbent Cotton Towels
These towels are the best towels I have ever owned! They are so plush and absorbent...I had no idea towels could be like this. I thought I had nice towels before...but they were nothing like these towels. I purchased towels for one bathroom and just recently purchased more for the 2nd bathroom because they are just wonderful!

Rated 4 out of 5 by akaCecily Great bathsheet for smaller people
These are the most absorbent towels I've ever used. I love the range of colors and the price is actually low given the quality.
Unhappily, I shan't be buying any more because the bath sheets are so incredibly short. They're only a little bigger than the bath towels. I'm buying another brand just to get 8-10 inches more in length. I'd pay more for a longer Ultra-absorbent bath sheet. Alas.
I would recommend these towels to my smaller friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bailey103 Same Quality?
I bought 4 more of these towels because the 4 I bought 5 years ago have worn well (only one has a shredded side hem after all this time). I was careful to order the same style number. I must say that the new set does not feel as "heavy" as the set we've been using all these years. Maybe they are just as durable, but only time will tell. The color is the same as the first set, which is great, and the monogramming looks good.

I confess that I had plenty of perfectly usable towels and cannot defend my decision to get these gorgeous, soft, beautiful towels. It was a complete violation of my non-materialistic standards, which is not stopping me from sighing at how soft they are and smiling at how beautiful the red looks with our bathroom.
I promise to make an extra contribution to charity as penance.
There is a hilarious and very long convo on Google about whether it is okay to dry these towels on high heat when the instructions say low heat. I suggest you call LL Bean. As they accept returns, we should either follow their instructions, talk to them about the instructions, or live with the consequences.

The towels were very plush & absorbent. The bath sheets are a great size - my husband can finally get dry after a shower! They also washed very well. I was extremely pleased with my purchase & have already recommended them to others.

While I love the color and absorbency of these towels and have been using them for several years, the border keeps on shrinking. This is especially noticeable on the hand towels.

Bought these towels about a year ago... the deep blue color has not faded, and they still look brand new... highly recommend!
