The list author says: "A terry robe is serious business for those of us who, when coming out of the shower, would like to be greeted by a real bathrobe. Many qualities are important in a terry bathrobe: absorbency, weight, fluffiness, durability etc. etc.
Terry robes are available in various fabrics: cotton, bamboo, synthetic material (microfiber etc.). Cotton Terry is very absorbent, but it is also heavy. Microfiber is light and cuddly, but does not wick away moisture, so can leave you feeling damp and cold after shower. Viscose from bamboo has just shown up on the horizon, and is becoming popular. It matches, and perhaps exceeds, cotton in absorbency, yet it is relatively light and so silky soft.
Ultimately, it is a matter of personal choice. Some of the information provided below comes from personal experience, and some has been taken from the seller's product description."
"This men's bamboo/cotton terry robe is a natural companion to the women's terry bathrobe listed above. 70% bamboo / 30% cotton in white color. Camel color shawl collar and trim is masculine and stylish. Kimono-style sleeves are comfortable."
