Vertical Rugby Stripe Beach Towel
I paid $29.50 plus shipping and for that price, my expectations were set fairly high for "just a beach towel". My expectations were exceeded! The quality is phenomenal --thick and plush, no loose threads. The colors are just as they appear online. And the size is perfect for my 6'2" husband. My only recommendation would be to offer more color choices (particularly for women).

We bought 5 towels, one for everyone in the family. Each has their own color. The towels are very large and have great color.

This was purchased for a tall man and it is perfect! I had his name monogrammed on it and it looks great. Highly recommend .

A Sumptuous towel
A perfect pool or beach towel. Nice and thick.

The beach towel was absolutely beautiful when I got it. I loved the size and weight, also.
The problem came when I washed it the first time. Mine was the navy and white stripe, so I was very careful to wash light/wwhite towels with it. The lint from the blue stripe ended up on the white stripe, and the lint from white stripe ended up on the blue stripe. Needless to say, I was dismayed. I have tried every recommendation I can find on the internet, all cleaning tips I can find, etc., and tried these to no avail. (Note: I used cold water, gentle wash for all washings.) I gave it two stars for size, weight, and finishing. I kept watching for others to write about this; I can't believe I'm the only one.

Shrunk by 6 inches !
Bought 2 of these towels several years ago and they have held up wonderfully.
My husband who is 6'2" recently mentioned he wished the towel were longer to cover his feet.
I looked up the measurement of the current towel and it was listed as being 8" longer than the one I had.
I ordered it and as soon as I took it out of the package I knew the quality had gone down - this felt much thinner than the one I had purchased before, which after years of washing is still thicker than this new one. The biggest disappointment was when I washed the new towels in cold water before using and they both shrunk to 72" long - down from the 78" advertised. These are going back and I am sticking with my old ones. Quality at Lands End is really hit or miss the last few years - with more misses instead of hits !

Disappointed in quality- large snags after one use.
I ordered 3 towels as a surprise for 3 boys for a beach vacation. These towels were used yesterday for the first time. As I was washing them today, I noticed large snags in one of the towels, revealing a long white line of thread. The other two towels had several small snags and thread pulls. I can't imagine this happened after one use. While customer service was willing to replace, unfortunately we need these for our vacation. Additionally, I had the towels monogrammed and would feel horrible about sending them back to go into the trash. I suspect after reading glowing reviews that there is some quality control issue from the most recent order of these towels. My order was backordered for a new shipment. In addition, the cosmic blue towel is not cosmic blue/navy stripe as the picture suggests, but is cosmic blue/black striped. This was slightly disappointing as I had wanted navy in all 3 towels. I would not spend $30 again on a towel that will likely last one summer.

Excellent Beach Towel!!
I first bought these towels more than 10 years ago and they are still going strong. I just purchased more to send with my boys to college. They are the perfect size and thickness. I would say this is money well spent!!!

This towel is huge!
We finally lost one of our ten plus year old Land's End towels on the lake earlier this summer. So I purchased two of these for my husband and I. I agree with some of the other reviews that they are not as thick but we actually prefer that as they dry quicker. We have not found them to be too fuzzy and washed fine. They are soft and have plenty of colors to choose from. Great deal with the sales going on.

LOVE THIS TOWEL
I normally just buy beach towels off the rack in local stores, since we go through so many of them. However, this year I had two beach trips coming up so I thought I would splurge a little. I bought the "watermelon looking" one. I am thoroughly pleased! The colors are gorgeous, and the towel is soooooooo soft and just feels luxurious! Holds up well in the blazing sun and comes out fluffy from the dryer! And, with the summer sale going on, it was a great deal!
