First I must say that my family is very vocal when it comes to towels. This is the first towel that got EVERYONE'S approval! They are extremely absorbent, soft, but not too soft or too fluffy. Very quick drying and they don't take up a lot of space in the closet when stored. They also launder beautifully. Don't be alarmed with the amount of lint that comes off when first washed, after the second washing there is minimal lint. Some people complained about the lint, but my dryer is new and very efficient, so perhaps I had less lint. I'm giving these towels 5 stars. My son wants to take them to college this Fall, so I just purchased more. Eventually I hope to replace all of our towels with these! I hope to see them in more colors in the future.
