I am very pleased with these towels. They're not quite as heavy / thick as others that I've bought from Overstock but they are the softest and very absorbant. Plus, since they're not overly heavy / thick, they dry faster than my other towels but still do an impressive job of wicking the water off. Would have given all 5 stars but the color on my screen was a darker red than the towels I received. Washed them 3 times so far and be very careful to only wash them with like colors... they bleed!
