I had high hopes for these towels. 800 grams seems like a lot, and it is. Sadly, despite being beefy and thick and heavy, these towels didn't really do what we all want our towels to do. That is, they are surprisingly non-absorbent, even after washing. They are also about as rough and non-soft as the heavy plastic bag in which they arrived. While they look nice on the rack, touching, or worse, using them instantly reveals their inferior quality. The tags say "City Scene" and upon searching online for that keyword, I found this same set at other online retailers. Indeed, Overstock has the best price, but I wouldn't keep or use these if they were free.
