Rated 5 out of 5 by MaineIsland These are terrific towels!
I bought a set of white for each little granddaughter and had their name monogrammed on each piece (Bean's was great, they even monogrammed each set in the thread color I wanted)...the sets not only looked fabulous when I got them, they are a great towel for a great price. I wish they had pink but maybe someday. In any case, these are really a good deal and I intend to buy more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by feta Best towels ever!
I always thought bath towels had to be thick to be absorbent, but not the case with these towels. They soak up the water, but are not bulky in any way. They wash great - no lint or pilling. After two days of using them, I got back online and ordered more - I'm replacing all my bath towels with these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frangipani14 Quick drying and soft
Some of our other towels do not dry very well and we have had trouble with mildew. These towels are great--quick drying and soft. No mildew! They are larger than many bath towels too (not what I was looking for but good) and come in nice colors (except the coral, which I returned). We bought more of these towels for our sailboat because of their quick-dry qualities. They seem to be working well but we haven't tested them yet while cruising in humid areas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2dogs2cats3fish So Nice
We're updating our towels at home and I've been buying and trying a few at a time from different retailers. This cotton textured towel from Bean beat a much pricier brand by leaps and bounds! So soft, even after laundering without fabric softener. Love the muted color and the way the edges are finished. I plan on buying more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LoveMyLabradors Happy So Far
Just took my first shower with these towels, and I am happy with them so far. I wear a charm bracelet 24/7, and it was constantly catching on my fluffy towels. I've been looking for something more flat that won't constantly be getting pulls. These towels seem to work great. Yes, they are thin, but I disagree with people who said they weren't soft. I think they feel great and dry well. I was surprised at how plain they look without that bit of decoration that most towels have. I'm sure I'll get used to it but I'm giving 4 stars because they do look a bit like a big dish towel. Also love the light green color. We also have little ventilation in our bathroom, so I'm looking forward to the quick dry between uses that other people noted. Hubby hasn't tried them yet, but he'll be happy that I'm not returning yet another set of towels!

Rated 4 out of 5 by TexasCentered Especially nice with monogramming
These towels are what I expected, light and absorbent. I prefer that over the heavy plush ones and the monogramming looks sharp. I will probably get more. Colors are sort of faded looking but that can be expected given they match the pictures on the website.

Rated 1 out of 5 by nagl Sort of like a dish towel
I bought only one of these towels and I must say I would compare it to a really unattractive dish towel. Not what I expected and will not buy any more of these. It was a test. It failed the test.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SusanKathleen1125 Warm beige beautiful color
It was important to me to get just the right towels since I use them every day. I spent a long time researching towels, and I am thrilled with these. I like that they are light weight and not too thick which makes them quick drying and easy to use. The warm beige is much more attractive than the way it appears on line. It is lighter in color and more of a dark cream (but no yellow tones), and I cannot think of a single color it would not coordinate with. My bathroom is blue and the towels look great, but they would go equally well with green, beige, red, etc.

After receiving these towels, we ordered more and threw away all our other towels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ZoeB A Wicked Good Towel!
I was given two sets of the Ultra-Absorbent Cotton Towels. I was so excited to get them... but they don't dry. So I took them back and got these Textured Cotton Towels, 1) because they were recommended as drying quickly, always a good thing in Maine's summer humidity, and 2) because they were SO much easier to use with my arthritic hands. These towels ARE looped, just small loops, and they dry you off very well! I would highly recommend them. Now, I like a towel with a bit of texture, I dislike soft plushy fuzzy towels. They just push the water around and don't absorb it, in my experience, especially with fabric softener. I think these towels are superb! I also have long hair and I think they are super because I can easily wrap it around my head and it stays on my head, wrapped up, as they aren't too thick. They absorb so much water, my hair is definitely "towel dry" when unwrapped. They also wash like a rag, they come out of the dryer looking fabulous! I think these towels definitely live up to the LL Bean reputation of high quality. I love that they are a full towel, no flat end design, so you can use the whole towel. We love them and I will buy several more sets as finances allow! Thank you Beans, for another great product!
