This is an excellent buy for the price. I scoured many websites and found nothing with a hood and 100% cotton. The gray is a very pleasing color. I have washed it twice and it washed very well. I did not have problems with lint. It is really long too ( easily fits a 6ft person )and has a matching belt , which is removable.The stitching is strong. It did not wrinkle much either. I loved it and it is a very well made , heavy yet soft robe. It was shipped and reached on time.I am very happy with this purchase. I wish they made this for women too, in a smaller length.
