Rated 5 out of 5 by LOshopper I like the new styling
I love the new longer length, and also the fabric which glides over any under layer. These are great for travel -- very light weight and versatile. I recently traveled in Asia for a month, taking only a carry-on bag, and this was my only sweater. It was appropriate for a range of activities, including dining out at nicer hotel restaurants, shopping, hiking, etc. My only complaint is the color selection -- pretty blah, with the exception of the dark blue and purple which are very pretty. I also ordered the red, but it was a washed out red, not a bright true red.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lovethefall49 Beware the color forest grove
In fairness to the garment, my lower rating is based solely on the inaccuracy of the color represented as Forest Grove. I have not tried this fleece on to check its fit. I got two of these fleeces last year; if this model fits the same, I would give it five stars for fit alone. My problem with this green fleece is it is nothing like the color shown online. Please be aware that if you order the Forest Grove you will receive a vivid kelly green fleece! I am not misrepresenting this shade when I say this. I had expected a more muted, somewhat subtle green; the model suggests a green with a touch of blue in it, as would be the case with a more spruce-like green. The actual green would be perfect for St. Patrick's Day and is too bright to be a go-to garment in my wardrobe. I am very disappointed and am sending it back. I find the remaining color selections very uninspired, so I will not be replacing it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Beardance Didn't wear well but has some good features
I love most LLBean products. I bought this in Beeswax. The pockets are lined in black which shows through to the outside. It pilled from wearing and after washing on gentle/cold, it pilled more. The construction is excellent and great design of zippered pockets and seams but after a few wearings it wasn't very presentable. It is lightweight so that might be a plus or minus for a purchaser. I think dark colors would be okay because the linings wouldn't show through. The light color Beeswax was beautiful but picked up everything and got dingy quickly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by olympicview WAY TO LONG
Please offer this in PETITE since you made it longer it looks very
matronly, 5'4" I am considered average. Also a better selection of
colors would be nice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by hikercat Too Long
Please offer this in petite sizes, or make them shorter again. I've purchased and worn these fitness fleece jackets, in many colors, for years - they have been my 'go-to' indoor/outdoor lightweight layer. Sadly, I've had to return the last couple I've purchased because they are way too long for someone who is 5 ft. tall; they now are tunic length for me. The older ones I have are tattered, and I'm very disappointed that I am unable to replace them. I've given the product 3 stars and would recommend it to a taller friend, but not 'petite' friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by keepitsimplenana My most favorite item...
I've purchased at LLBean for decades, but nothing is more basic and practical than this versatile jacket. I have it in navy and wear it EVERY day...to the gym, to stores, walking in the neighborhood. It looks so much neater than a sweatshirt...and more flattering. If you don't like bulky or heavy clothing...this one is perfect for you too! I'm often a petite medium, but I bought this in a regular size small, and I love the length and the trimness. Super as a layering piece also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JWGC You made it bigger - why?
I bought this to replace another that was several years old. When I opened the package, I checked the tags on both jackets to see if they were different sizes. The current one is easily an inch or 1.5" longer (in sleeves and body) than the older one.
Too bad, as the older one fit me better.
LLBean, if you're making the misses size bigger, than please offer a petite option for those of us who are shorter than 5'4".
Still, I love the soft, plush fleece and this is a perfect weight for wearing indoors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Momof2activekids Nice style
Flattering cut and nice and soft. I like it. It is however quite thin and not really a jacket in my opinion.
