Rated 5 out of 5 by akitamix the exception proves the rule!
well I guess I got lucky, I have two of the white men's robes-they are holding up well. both had a weird chemical smell on first opening the package-I washed them before wearing and smell was gone. dried on 'delicate-low'. I think maybe having a front load washer helped too. I have the striped robe also #what can I saw I am addicted to robes, lol# and that is an absolute MESS of snags! I am thinking maybe having a top load washer is too rough for these.#we used to have one and it really messed up the striped robe# also got the monogramming for the other white robe, that is a really nice touch!
got the white in men's medium.

Rated 1 out of 5 by kimmrz60 men's terry cloth robe
I wish I had paid attention to the reviews before I allowed myself to be sucked in by the discounted sale price. Unfortunately I'll now be out the shipping to return this robe--the quality is NOTHING like I've come to expect from LL Bean. Fabric is not soft even after washing, and snags are appearing everywhere. Unfortunately, I'm afraid to trust even items I've purchased in the past, since they let this quality through now.

I love the weight, comfort, and warmth. However, as others have said, threads are continually coming out which makes it look cheap.

This may well be the worst purchase I have made in years. Very poor quality terry cloth?after the first wash, there are long strings, snags and bald spots all over the robe?it's just coming unraveled! It appears the only quality part of this robe is the monogram. Major disappointment because the robe was purchased as a Christmas gift! Sorry, guys?you should withdraw this item.

Rated 2 out of 5 by sh0pper Cozy and soft, but terry cloth snags.
In some ways, I really like LLBean's terry cloth robes. They are comfy and cozy. But the terry cloth doesn't seem to be of very high quality. It snags easily, and within a couple of weeks of wearing, the robe starts to look tattered. This has happened to two robes we've owned over the last 10 years. Next time I'm in the market, I'll look at what else is available in this price range first.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DrOutdoors Super warm and soft, but......
Love the feel of this robe. Super heavy and comfortable. The problem is that the fabric starts to fall apart almost immediately. Within days small "pulls" starting showing up. After a month or two, it was really getting bad. At first I thought I was snagging it somehow, but I wasn't. I haven't returned it since I am using it, and I bought it as a DOD. So, for the DOD price, maybe worth it, full price probably not.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kinda heavyweight Turkish cotton robe
I purchased this robe for my husband. instructions were to wash before wearing, which i fully intended to do. after washing (on heavy w/hot water) it did indeed have pulls and much lint. I spent a few hours cleaning it up with a lint brush and masking tape. my efforts were well received. the robe is now very soft and absorbent, with strong fibers. I believe it will give my husband many years of warmth and comfort. sizing is true. I ordered a Large Regular for a 6'1" gentle man.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DrOutdoors Feels great .... but....
Wow this thing is heavy and warm. I love wearing it. Within a few weeks of owning it the fabric started to pull. It seems to be falling apart slowly over time. The good news is that the fabric is so thick. I wouldn't buy again unless they got the fabric to be of better quality.

The threads on the robe pulled out easily and left a look of the robe being abused and cheap. I sent it back without a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by riderinWi Great robe
Great product. This one replaced an old LLBean robe that lasted 10 years.
In the months I've used it, it has shown no signs of wear. Feels stiff out of the bag but the first washing takes care of that.
You can't go wrong with this product.
