Rated 1 out of 5 by MrsWeasley Disappointed in the color; very misleading
We are very disappointed in the color of the sweater. We ordered Deep Woods Green Heather, and there is nothing green about the sweater whatsoever. It is an unattractive shade of brown. The description and even picture are misleading. They should re-name the color of this item. We have asked several people what color they would say the sweater is and every single person has replied "brown. " Not one person has thought the sweater looks green at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bluegrouse decent quality
I am 6'3'' and about 240 lb. Deep woods green model was almost completely darker brown with hardly a hint of dark green. Surprising but not a big deal. Ordered tall. The tall model was at least 4'' too long. Regular would have probably been a better choice. Also, do not count on it shrinking with washing -- was tool lazy to return and quite certain that it would shrink if washed in hot water but to my surprise it did not shrink much at all. The wool is not as tightly wowed as the military models. Overall, not bad for the price but would gladly pay more for a more tightly wowed wool resembling the original military models.

I had been watching this sweater for a while on LL Bean. I finally decided to purchase this sweater when my wife and I decided to go to Europe for Christmas vacation. I was in the Democratic Republic of Congo at the time so I had LL Bean ship to Europe for me and boy was it worth it.
This sweater was warm enough to the point that I was sweating indoors while it was under a light jacket. It does give you a rather dashing look. My wife really likes the way it looks on me and said I NEED to buy it to two other colors.
I'm 5'10" 198 lbs, athletic build and fits well. I've worn this on top of wool base layer and t-shirt with a medium to light jacket and felt great.

I bought two of these sweaters in a brownish color for my husband for work to wear over his uniform a few years ago. He works outside every day, and does heavy activity 10-12 hours a day. The sweaters are absolutely the Best!! They are rugged, warm, neat looking, and stand up to the fall and winter weather here in the Northeast. They launder very well, and I line dry them. They still look new! He loves every aspect of them! The guys at work even ask him where he gets them!l

Rated 5 out of 5 by TUD10 Comfortable
Great sweater for cool damp conditions. I've now used it for hunting and fishing in cool fall weather and it is great. The fit is perfect. I am 6' tall and weigh 220 pounds and the fit is just right. I will buy one for my son for Christmas.

A great buy! The sweater fits well and is very stylish and warm. I did wear it over a t-shirt today, which I might not do again since my forearms have gotten a little itchy, but I look and feel great. Dressy and distinguished enough for a work meeting but comfortable and casual enough for drinks with friends after work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RichfromCanada Well make product!!
I have had three of these sweaters over the last 10 years and they are warm, comfortable, fit well and very durable. I wear them constantly and they are excellent for cold Canadian winters. I'm only now starting to develop a hole in the elbow after 10 years of constant wear. Love these sweaters!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maxbest Great buy...
Was looking for something to pull on to wear to with jeans to keep the chill of a Sydney, Australia winter at bay. I found it in these sweaters. The last time I wore something similar was in my military service, some 36 years ago. Was looking for something similar and I found it here at LL Bean. Wear with a thermal shirt (polypropylene or Merino) underneath, throw on a beanie and scarf, you are good to go. Very warm. And comfortable. So good in fact, I ordered another one practically straight away, in a different color of course. Fit was good, I am fairly straightforward as far as fit goes. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DLF63 Best Sweater You Can Buy for NE Hunting
The L.L. Bean name is synonymous with quality hunting clothes from Katadin Maine to the Blue Ridge Mountains, I've Deer and Bear hunted in these sweaters for 35 years. Still hunting or in a tree stand they keep the wind out and the body warmth in. It's 100% wool and packs well- good price too. It is hard to find this sweater and Thanks LLB for keeping it in the starting lineup.
Also looks great with a quality blue blazer and oxford.
