Rated 5 out of 5 by Datadriven Almost perfect
These towels are SO great. I've been hunting around for thin, absorbent, not too soft, not too rough towels for a while. I have a couple of waffle weave towels, which I like, but they're not quite soft enough. These towels have a wonderful texture, yet are still soft. They're great looking, modern towels. They would be perfect if the hanging loop was affixed to the middle edge of a long side. As they are (on a corner), you need a lot of height to hang these from the loop. The colors are pretty, but I would love to see a gray, and some brights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by katwmn1 Surprising in a good way...
When these towels arrived, I was a bit skeptical as they are quite a bit thinner than I'm accustomed to. They washed well and they are very thirsty. They also dry quickly which is a plus. No pilling, not fuzzy.
We will be ordering more as we replace our towels.

We have been using our new Textured Towels a few days and think they are great. They are just as the description describes. No more heavy fluffy towels for us, will only be purchasing these and are so glad LL Bean is carrying them.

I purchased these towels (slate and white) for every day use. The towels dry quickly and have held up well after multiple washings. One reviewer mentioned that it would be nice to see a 'medium' size. I do agree that the towels are larger than the typical towel and I would buy a 'medium' size if they were available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by exmptle Perfect for RVers
I bought a set of these to try in the RV. They work much better than the fluffy towels we had previously used. I haven't had to "dry" myself with a damp towel since I bought them. I bought another set for the RV and several sets for friends and relatives who like to camp. Without exception, everyone says they are great.
Other reviewers have noted that the towels are reasonably soft and quite absorbent. I agree. They would be suitable for home use as well as camping.

We purchased two sets of these towels earlier this year (white and flint blue) after having experienced the wonder that is the LL Bean turkish towel on vacation last summer. The rental house we stayed at (in Maine) had LL Bean towels in every bathroom and we just loved how they felt and more importantly, how they dried! Fast forward 6 months, I finally got around to ordering the towels for our home and we couldn't be happier with the quality. While the towels may be "thin", they are much more absorbent than our fluffy hotel style towels. When both sets are in the wash, I'm forced to use our hotel towels as a back-up and one can really tell the difference between the two because the hotel style towels don't dry as nicely and do seem awkward to use (as another reviewer said). You cannot go wrong purchasing these towels - plus, they truly do resist stains! My white towels and washcloths re still pristine after 6 months of use which is amazing!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Arewonderful First time disappointed
My relationship with LL Bean has always been satisfying, but, this towel with monogram appeared poorly made. The towel was thin and rough. The monogram contained little thread.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ButtercupThinker Love these towels, except for the sizing.
I love how these towels feel, and how they dry quickly, but I think the sizing needs to change. The bath towel is too big for a hair towel and the over sized towel is not as big as a bath sheet. In fact, they are so close in size it is hard to tell them apart. I really wish the bath towel was smaller and the over sized was larger, then they would be perfect. Oh, and maybe a hunter green as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HermitThrush Great towel set, great price, good colors
Enough of heavy, thick towels that take forever to dry and won't fit between your toes or around your ears. Welcome lithe, lighter weight towels that do the job they were meant to do. I will buy more of these.
