Rated 4 out of 5 by CampingGirl I wish I could give it a 5
This is the coziest sweatshirt EVER for boys, that lasts! That being said I was hard pressed to give it even a 4 star rating, because of the design. Sleeves need to be a bit longer to fit the appropriate size!! Because they run short, boys are forced to bump up a size that is too baggy elsewhere on their bodies, making the waistband way too large.
I will also need to agree with others that have commented on coloring for boys. PLEASE stock solid colors that aren't so bright!!! Older boys do NOT want to glow!!!
Fix those issues LLBEAN and you will have a five star sweatshirt!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CentralFlorida I re-buy every year at full price. NUFF SAID!
A steal even at full price for its quality, craftsmanship, durability and simple "LOVE" factor. It's the equivalent of a silky soft Teddy bear turned into a jacket. Amazing quality that gets handed down through so many sets of cousins who all fall in love with their jackets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CancerMom2365 Best hoodie EVER!
My son lost his hair during cancer treatment and I bought him two of these, since he complained other hoodies were scratchy on his head. The fleece on the inside of the hood has stayed soft through many, many washings. They are by far his favorite. I think LL Bean should consider donating some of these to the oncology units of children's hospitals.

Rated 4 out of 5 by IllinoisMom2Boys Camp Hoodie Original Colors
PLEASE bring back the original colors as an option! My son has worn the darker blue for years and buys the next size up when he out grows it. Have searched high & low for a comparable hoodie but cannot find one!

This is the second camp hoodie I have purchased for my child. It is perfect for fall weather; very soft and comfortable. The fit is as expected without disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MeMyselfI Boys Fleece-lined Camp Hoodie: solid
YAY! Bean brought the contrast stitching back that makes the jacket stand out: look expensive and unique, and not like your average (or even LE's) fleece-lined sweatshirt jacket.
Watch out: we ordered deep red expecting natural fleece and natural contrast stitching: we received navy fleece and navy contrast stitching. My son looked at it and decided he liked the red and navy and is happy to keep it. We love these and have been buying them for years. They are the softest, coziest jackets and we have outgrown them before wearing them out.
I called and informed them of the difference between what the online photo is and what we received. The blue has navy fleece and navy contrast stitching as well, even though it is not on the opening photo: it is on the photo with the boy wearing it. That said, I would guess the green will have navy contrast stitching to go along with the navy fleece, but you may want to check. I know there is always a rush to get the fall catalog ready by the drop date, so maybe they will be photoshoping the correct versions in soon!;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by EmmaFGN Fantastic jacket!
My kids love this fleece. It's perfect for fall and spring as a jacket/ sweatshirt, and some winter days as an under layer. It's so cozy warm, and my kids have nicknamed it their "fuzzy." We always buy new ones for my eldest, and his outgrown ones still look really good for my younger child to wear. Love this!

Rated 2 out of 5 by IcicleAdventurer Bring back old colors
Great durable sweatshirts! My boys love these for PA fall and spring weather...I would love to buy them the next sizes up because they truly are a great product, but I ABHOR the new colors! Maybe if I had a toddler, but a lot of bigger boys here don't like the mixed brighter colors. I guess I just don't understand the obsession with mixing of colors recently. Maybe it's supposed to be a retro trend--I feel like I'm back in the 80's or early 90's. That being said, I have two of the orange and one of the blue with "oatmeal" lining that have been heavily worn for camping, school, on my sister's farm, and at our cabin by both of my 6 & 9 y/o boys (2 have been handed down to the younger for size) and I don't think there are any stains on them, so I can't see that making the liner darker would be a valid reason. The only damage to the one is a tiny hole where a rabbit bit through the sleeve--I haven't even noticed any other snags! So, if you like the new colors, buy the sweatshirt! And LL Bean, why change a great product? Please bring some of the old colors back or I will be searching elsewhere for what is probably a lower quality product that looks better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JMajewski Exactly what I was looking for
My child had a hoody that he was just in LOVE with but had outgrown and broken the zipper on. Because it had been given to us I had no idea how to replace it. While on vacation in NJ I spotted the EXACT hoody I was looking for in your window!! I couldn't believe my luck and the fact that I had never thought to look at Bean's in the first place. We live in AZ so this is the PERFECT winter jacket. It is just the the right heaviness for our really "cold" days. I have returned since to purchase other great clothes for my son. Thanks for having exactly what I was looking for!!
