Rated 5 out of 5 by Terrydavenporter Really Good Item
Big, thick, and absorbent, with a touch of Holiday Inn nostalgia to boot. High quality. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MadameWoolite Cherished and so worth it.
The towel in my possession has always been and will always be. I cannot remember a time before this towel and wanted it for my own when I was a child although it was my father's towel. My mother purchased some beige ones when I was about 15 but the green striped towel always stuck in my mind. Even after my father is gone, this towel has traveled with me and been used heavily for about 30 years. Now that I have mostly warn through the white part (the stripe is still as bright as it ever was and thick too), I am going to be getting a few more so my daughter can enjoy what is now a family traditional 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.
