Rated 5 out of 5 by WorththeWait Warm, colorful with a Nice Fit
I am fairly new to wearing fleece and I do love them for wearing in the house during the winter. I have a fleece vest from a competitor and loved wearing it last year. What I love about the LLBean fleece zip front is that it is fitted, not boxy. I also love the inside finish of this product. It does not create static and slips on easily over my knit shirts. One other feature I particularly like is the slightly narrower collar band which is more comfortable to wear. I have not had a chance to wash this product. I usually wear a Large size in LLBean tops and this fit exactly as expected.

Rated 4 out of 5 by redgate2 fits the bill
This fitness fleece is just right. I wanted a LIGHTWEIGHT fleece and this is it! The description says it is slightly fitted and it is just that. Sizing runs true to size for a slightly fitted item--I normally wear a size 8 and the "small" fits me as expected. I like having zippered pockets and the ever so slightly longer length, and the flattering princess seams in front and back giving it a hint of shape. I was wondering why the inside was whitish [I bought the pinkish color] but then realized that it is "heathered." I hope that future fleeces like this will come in some more cheerful colors.

Rated 2 out of 5 Disappointed
I've had several fitness fleece jackets for years. They have been comfortable and dependable. Recently I purchased another fitness fleece jacket, the gray/white print one. It is attractive and was comfortable when I tried it on. However, the fabric is about half as heavy as in my older ones. More importantly, the stitching is serged and this gives the top a cheap look. I realize that serging in a faster, less expensive form of fabric construction, but I think it detracts from the look of the piece. I will keep this jacket, but won't be ordering any more, especially at the current price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lynnio Warm but lightweight, good fit.
I purchased this in the Peony Heather color and love it. Just what I needed for biking, walking and hiking in NH in the fall. I wish this simple, lightweight version were available in safety orange, though, for added visibility when hiking during hunting seasons. The weight is perfect. I wear it over a long-sleeved running shirt and am warm enough on a 45-50 degree (F) day. Fits well, just roomy enough without being overly loose, and even though sleeves are usually too long on me, I don't have that problem with this jacket, even though I ordered a regular instead of petite in order to have enough length in the body. I was concerned that it might be static-y, but I had no problems at all with static.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mvharbath I want to love it, but...
The sleeves are just too short in the plus sizes. It was a great weight for early fall until the weather got cold. I can see it working well in southern states.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Debu2biggestfan Very thin fleece but comfortable
It is good to wear for a cool spring day and a mild fall day. It is also good to wear as a sweater if your house is chilly and you don't want to raise the heat ( save money). NOT FOR WINTER COLD WEATHER. I LOVE THE PRETTY BLUE COLOR.?

Rated 1 out of 5 by OutdoorsyLover Slick, Icky Inside Not fleece
I have a bunch of older, lightweight, llbean fleece jackets in great, bright colors that I bought several years ago but loved to death by last winter. When I went in search for replacements, I found llbean had dropped that line, even though it was the company's only true alternative to the standard fleece weights. And that's a real shame. Then I found and bought some of these, which seemed to promise lightweight, colorful alternatives. Only it didn't work out that way. First, they're not nearly as lightweight, which I like so much because they can then be worn both as indoor alternatives to sweaters and as outdoor protection from the mild chill. The second problem with these is the interior side. It's cheap, slick and icky-feeling, a non-fleece fabric. Why?? The thing about fleece is its great feeling. What's the point of replacing the interior with something that is not fleece, is not cozy and is not comfortable? I thought last winter's negative reviews about this issue would send you back to the drawing board. Please return to where you started, llbean, and get it right this time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by fitzthepuglover Different fabric, icky on the inside now!
I have MANY old fitness fleece, and they used to be fleecy on the inside. Now they aren't, it is a slick polyester feeling fabric. Loved the feel of the old ones, fleecy on both sides. Please bring back the old style!
