I was a disappointed especially from reading many of the other reviews. Its really a fairly average kind of robe. Not particularly heavy or thick. It is soft though and fits well and is relatively cozy. But its not particularly warm I think which is fine if you live in LA. I haven't had to wash it yet so can't report on that, am hoping the reviews saying it washes well are actually correct. Bought if for my honey for xmas to replace an actual 5 star hotel robe he's been wearing for soooo long I couldn't wash it anymore. But it doesn't compare at all. No weight no thickness which is really what I expect from an "authentic hotel spa" robe.
