I am a huge proponent of bamboo products -- highly sustainable resource, plus bamboo fabric is anti-microbial, more absorbent than cotton, and seriously soft. These towels are fantastic. The first thing I noticed was that they are a bit thinner than others I've bought from Overstock.com, but they are also much softer. After using them for a while, I don't think they lack anything for being thinner, and I am loving the extra soft character. So, I do recommend these to anyone that wants to get into the bamboo towel scene.
