Rated 1 out of 5 by Cyrusbeanshopper Looks great only
First of all I really like the looks of this item the brown version is my favorite the inside should have hooded lining with dark colors the fake far in it feels and looks cheap. Other then that the issue is the nasty sleeves feels weird cold in the winter and the WORST part of this item is the caffs they put a rubber band that does not expend so when you put those sleeves up it feels tight. It needs a good redesign and please bring back black color they had excellent version two years ago that retired that was insulted I really miss it. I had to return this item and tried a few versions and all the SAME issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Citydog Love it overall, but hate the tricot sleeve lining
I love this sweatshirt. *Love*. It's extremely well made, dog and horse hair doesn't stick to it, and it's super warm. The lining is plush and soft, and the hood is literally the only hood I've ever had that stays comfortably and warmly on my head but doesn't obscure my peripheral vision.
Unfortunately, I have to take a star off because the sleeve lining is *horrible*. It's a nasty, slick synthetic that is quite chilling if worn over a short-sleeved shirt, doesn't breathe well, and made my arms quite clammy regardless of shirtsleeve length. So, I took scissors to it and ripped it out. Problem solved.
I would give the jacket a full five stars plus if the sleeves were lined with the same fleece as the body and hood.
The pockets have a neat inner pocket with velcro to keep your keys or phone safe.
Women should order a size down from their regular women's size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by merrymac Katahdin Sweatshirt
This is a great sweatshirt, just what I wanted, a men's heavyweight, lined shirt/jacket. Goes on easily with the poly lined sleeves and is warm.
Women's sweatshirts are not heavy enough.
I tried two other Men's sweatshirts on sale, until, biting the bullet, I purchased this one. Pricey, but worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JaysonNYC Very nice
It is definitely very warm especially out in the cold winter weather. I had been wearing this hoodie a lot when our heater was broken a month ago and was waiting on repairs. I'm not too cheery about the oversized hood but it serves it's purpose of wearing it over a cap or hat. My complaint would be that there is no lining in the sleeve areas.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 1129Shopper Disappointed sleeves aren't lined in same material
I wish LL Bean made this sweatshirt with the sleeves lined in the same soft material as the body. I guess the slick sleeves are great for people who want to wear long-sleeved shirts under them but my son hates wearing long sleeved shirts and wants a jacket that will also keep his arms warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gingersa Really Warm
Our south Texas winters are relatively mild, but occasionally Canada decides to share with us, too. This hoodie cut the cold from our first norther a few weeks back. It was actually so warm I could enjoy a morning walk. I realize I might not wear this one often, but it will be really appreciated when I need it. Love the full-zip and the Black Cherry color.

If you don't need a bulky coat & ladies you are in the "summer of your life" this is just perfect warmth without bulky. I own 2 of these they are perfect for me. I like how the sleeves don't have the fleece lining but the silky kind. It always gets in a wrestling match with your shirt sleeves anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vorca Best Hoddie of all Time!
Best hooded sweatshirt of all time! Lining in the sleeves prevent bunching and clinging when wearing long sleeves underneath. Pockets have a thin lining inside with Velcro like a hidden pocket. I own three different colors and my wife has two. I cant recommend them enough.

Nice hooded sweat. Well Made.But .....No warmth in the sleeves. Have others I bought at half the price with warmer sleeves. Probably Keep it and wear long sleeves under. Will not buy more!!
