We got these towels as we don't have enough towel bars, so one towel has to hang over the shower door. That one always got that bad mildew smell really fast. But, these towels dry fast and even the one over the shower does not mildew! I would definitely recommend. Only negative for a larger person is that they are not very big, so check the dimensions if that's important to you.
The color was nowhere near what I ordered based on the photo. I ordered two sets of "fern" but it is a much darker color, more like a medium moss green. However, they are well-made and lightweight, and probably do dry faster than heavier towels.
