Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeanshopper107888 Soft and fairly durable.
I bought these about 2 years ago. They had a few pulls in them within the first month or 2 of using them, but the number of pulls has not increased since then. Other than that they have worn very nicely over the last 2 years, and the best part is they are the softest towels I have ever owned! I don't think I could ever use another type of towel, I'm so used to how soft and fluffy these are!

Rated 5 out of 5 by OldGuyInTheWoods Good buy
These towels started out feeling as luxurious as any towel I have ever felt. That lasted several months of weekly washings. After four months, they are still very good towels but have lost that absolutely luxurious feel. That is to be expected and I am sure these towels will last us several years. Overall, a very good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 Christmas Gift
The towels were a Christmas gift to our daughter and husband. They were delighted with the quality and absorption of the towels.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bonsai Good purchase.
I am happy with my purchase of these towels. I like the colors and the texture. The comments I read in other reviews of these towels regarding an abundance of lint when they are washed caused me to hesitate before purchasing them. I'm glad I bought them anyway. The lint has not been an issue for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by klm56 linty towels
These towels wash terrible. The lint they leave behind is excessive. My tub, body, washing machine and dryer were full of lint even after 5 washes. I would not recommend these towels. I hope they wash better after 1 month or so.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MichStateMom Attractive and Soft but retains water
These towels are very attractive and if we had them just as an infrequently used towel in the guest bath they would be fine. But they retain water so that 24 hours later they are still slightly damp! Perfect for a one use and wash it type of situation but not good for use in the master bath. I am returning them and getting a different towel set. BTW the monogramming is attractive, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gracewise Great Towels & Great Customer Service
Great towels, no problem with lint or fraying and that's after several washes. Absorbent and soft. Was missing an item from order and L L Bean customer service, as usual, handled everything with professionalism & courtesy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JudgmentDay Maybe TOO plush
Bought pairs of bath towels, hand towels, & washcloths maybe a year ago. Have NOT had the fraying or lint issues cited by others and don't dispute the quality BUT - toweling off after a shower I find that the bath towels don't wick the water fast enough, giving used areas of the towel a cold wet feel on its surface. I get a better dry-off with cheaper less dense cotton towels. Washcloths are nice, soft, and will hold a lot of water if that is to like. Overall, quality product but a lukewarm recommendation due to wet-wiping bath towel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Popajohn4u Very soft
This is the second set of this type of striped towels I have bought recently. The first set (of different color) was so very soft and absorbent that I just had to buy another set. I have only used them once they are performing just like the first set so I am very happy. If I am ever NOT happy L.L.Bean has the best solution for making it right and me happy. I have been a "bean" customer for over 40 years and have never had a problem. Buy with confidence.
