Rated 5 out of 5 by ThriftyYankee Heckuva towel
Bought it based on reviews and because it's larger than normal towels. Did not expect the wicked good thickness and absorbency. Best towel I ever owned. Will buy some more for backup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RetiredHockeyMom excellent and long lasting
I bought 2 towels twenty years ago. They survived ice hockey skates and equipment bags for weeks at a time. Now my son is a firefighter. I thought I would buy 2 more for the next 20 years.

Love this towel. What can I say but that it is big, absorbent and washes up nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DrLilith Thought I was the only one...
I was doing my holiday shopping and decided to write what I thought would be a unique review for this towel, but -- to L.L Bean's credit -- I'm far from unique!
My mother bought me this towel (along with two smaller sizes) when I left for college in 1988. I used it through college and grad school, and then started using it regularly again when I had my daughter (who is now 8). This towel has been washed hundreds of times over the 25+ years I've owned, and it is still in good shape. It gradually lost a bit of its softness, so I'm ready to replace it, but I simply can't say enough about the quality of these towels. Thanks, L.L. Bean!

I bought two of these locker room towels, one for my husband and one for myself. We're both pleased with the quality. They're thick, comfy, and plenty big enough to wrap around almost any BODY! Because of their sturdiness, I expect to get years of use out of them. The dark green stripe with the L.L. Bean logo down the center also adds a unique touch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CookingOrganist Durable classic
Riffing on the previous comment, I *still* have the one that I received from my aunt when I was a freshman in college (I campaigned for Dukakis...), and it is *still* in great condition, though I don't use it as often now that I'm all 'growed' up. If the reincarnation is as high-quality as the classic, it is an investment-quality towel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bhobbs63 The best towel ever...
While some may be put off by the cost of this towel, it is simply put the best towel ever. I had one of these back in the '80's and I am glad to see that they brought them back. The towel is plush, extra large size and extremely absorbent. Buy a few - you won't regret it!
