Rated 5 out of 5 by deepwatersailor Good cold weather sweater
I have the black one, and I like it. It is warm and comfortable, and has a nice appearance. The leather shoulder patches allow me to wear a back-pack or hydro-pack while hiking, without wearing through the cloth. The leather elbow patches save me from going to the local sewing goods store in a year or two to buy elbow patches that the local dry cleaners would have to sew on.

Just received this sweater and was very happy with it. I tried the Henley version which was very tight but this sweater looked and felt great. Would recommend this sweater to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scooter92 Just what I've been looking for.
I bought my first sweater, like your Commando Sweater, when I was in the Navy, stationed in Brunswick, ME. The sweater was bought while I was in England. It was a British Royal Air Force sweater.
I have been looking for another for a long time and now I found it. I looks, fits and feels just like my old one did. I couldn't be happier.
Thanks for a great sweater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NorthernWanderer warm, rugged and good looking
great warmth, good looking, it looks like it will be very durable. I wish the sleeves were not so long, but they can be rolled back a second time.

The sweater looked nice when I put it on and the first couple of times I wore it, but then began to "pile" and look cheap. I am going to sew if it can be saved by deeam cleaning but it is not up to their standards and I would not buy it again

I now have nine of these sweaters and I've loved them from the first year that Bean has offered them.
They're all crew necks and of almost every shade and color. Great quality, great value, great clean look! A great dress sweater.
If you like sweaters at all, you can't loose with at least a couple of these in your wardrobe.

This is my 2nd LL Bean Commando Sweater,The first one is at least 10 years old and I am wearing it right now. I am a wing shooting instructor and the shoulder patches contribute to the long life of this product. I taught 2 lessons in 33 degree weather last weekend with this sweater and no coat or jacket. I wear this sweater almost every day in the winter.

I own a few of these. I have taught classes wearing one, fished wearing one, and slept in the woods wearing one. It would make any packing list for 9 months of the year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RangerJohn61 My Favorite Sweater
The classic RAF Blue Sweater is the absolute best looking sweater a man can have. I've had mine for five years now...it never goes out of style...it's warm...the wool is thick..a little scratchy...but what good heavy duty wool isn't? And I usually pull this over a button down or a T-neck anyway...so what's the fuss?
What I love best is how it holds its shape over the years and never looks worn or droopy or loose.
And my son's decided the sweater looks so good, yep...they said...Dad...Christmas....and pointed at my sweater.
