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.
The robe is absorbant but without making you feel sweaty. I have long hair and will be using the hood on the robe in the winter to keep my head warm while my hair is drying. I'm 5'8 and the robes length was between my knees and ankles. I wear a size 14 and am curvy, so the robe doesn't seem to shut all the way around the hips. So it's great if you are a male or a woman who isn't very curvy. Not sure where they get one size fits most. It may fit most people, but not if they want the robe to close all the way.
When I saw this robe I couldn't believe it. My husband loves hooded robes and they are so hard (just about impossible) to find anymore. I ordered it and he couldn't be happier. It's soft and plush and absorbent. I will definitely order this again and can recommend it.
It does shrink up a bit in length and width, even when laying flat to dry. The width shrinkage wasn't too bad, but I would imagine that can vary depending on which way they are cutting the fabric. I wanted the length to stay really long for cold hot tub nights, and that shrinkage was rather significant with ~3" loss in length.
I ordered this robe for my daughter, tried it on and immediately ordered one for myself. We are both 5'6, 135 lb and 160 lb. it would fit someone a little thinner or fatter than either of us, and the length is mid-calf on us. We roll the cuff up one turn, which works nicely. The fabric is thick and cozy, perfect for after shower. Both of ours are very well made, sturdily constructed and nicely finished. I have laundered mine, normal cycle in the washer and dryer, resulting in some shrinkage in both length and width, which at my size is no problem. If there is no leeway on the fit for you, you would probably want to wash it in cold water and line dry.
I bought this (in Grey) for my grown niece and she hasn't stopped thanking me since. She loves the comfort, color and wicking of water, since she uses it mostly after her hot tub "therapy" very often, and more than likely at other times as well. She also loves the hood and has commented on the high quality. Very pleased.
