Rated 4 out of 5 by MassJean Decent Towels
First, I need to say that 'you get what you pay for' and that totally applies to these towels. I've seen several poor reviews regarding the quality of these towels. These are certainly not top-of-the-line towels, so anyone with expectations as such will surely be disappointed. However, for those of us who are simply looking for a low-priced, decent quality towel - these are great! Yes, they do shed a lot lint the first 8-10 washes... but that is to be expected. The color choices leave a lot to be desired, that is my biggest 'con' for these towels, but considering I bought a dozen to use in the hot tub and pool, I can live with the lime-green hue. lol For the price, these are a solid value and a good towel. When they go on sale again I'll be buying another dozen or so to have on hand... we go through half a dozen a day with all the kids in and out of the hot tub and pool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cheesyceackers I like these towels, but they need better colors
I purchased these in the store in the linen color for my bathroom. I have purchased this towel for years and I really like them, they hold up well, dry the skin well and wash well.
These arn't super fluffy and I like that. The super fluffy towels are just so huge and thick and often don't dry the skin well. These are large towels and have just enough fluff but they arn't so thick that they are annoying.(don't let how they feel in the store fool you, they wash up more fluffy then that).
I have purchased these in the past in the garnet color and in a brown color they no longer carry for kitchen hand towels and they hold up very well, some fading with so much washing, but still hold up well for the amount they get used and washed in the kitchen. The only real complaint I have are the colors now available, too bright, some beautiful darker colors would be nice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MRSpractical pilling...pilling...still pilling
I've washed these towels several times and they pill like nothing I've ever laundered. what's worse is the stuff that comes off in the wash gets attached to the laundry I wash after. I bought red, orange, blue and green; two of each per color: washcloth, hand towel, and bath towel. Each towel not only has it's own color pilling on them but every other color from the other towels. So much for trying to liven up the decor of my bathroom; I spend more time cleaning up after the towels than anything else one can do in a bathroom. The good part: they are thick enough to dry you off and thin enough to dry quickly ...if you don't mind having pilling leftovers in your hair. WORST TOWELS I'VE EVER BOUGHT! I have bought this brand for towels in the past...quality has declined.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mistoncat Average-Penney's lost their upper hand w/this towel
These towels are OK, but not even close to the thick luxury of the previous Home Expressions towels. I read the reviews before purchasing them, and I was reluctant to try them. So far, haven't had any trouble w/the hems coming out, etc. They are definitely not the preferred thicker towel. They seem to dry us OK. They are still giving an excessive amount of lint after several washings. Hopefully, Penney's will find a way to bring back the thick luxury of the previous version of these towels. I imagine these will never last as long as the others because they are so much thinner. I did rate them in durability as average since I've not had thenm long enough to tell if they will last like the older versions. Sometimes trying to save a buck doesn't work well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by tropigal Not as good as they used to be
We own a guest house/vacation rental in the tropics and 8 years ago when we started I bought tons of the Home Expression towels. They have held up very well through the years with heavy use and heavy washings, however the colors started to look a bit faded so we decided to purchase new ones for this year. I ordered these in the mango color and the color was not as pictured. These are a construction cone orange instead of a more muted pumpkin color as they appeared on my monitor when ordering.
Besides the VERY bright color they just feel much thinner then the ones we have which were purchased 8 years ago. We'll see how they hold up but if they make it through one year I will be surprised and happy.
