Rated 5 out of 5áby 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 5áby wandllovesLL Cute but sleeves too tight
The plus size 3X worked in the body but the sleeves were too tight with a shirt underneath so I had to return. I liked, though, that the inside wasn't fleece; more of a knit.

These jackets are the bomb. Can't live without them. Have purchased numerous colors over many years. But please bring back the original fit!! Or at least give us the option. I love love love the original fit, these "newer versions" run larger and longer! Also the original fit held up longer! thank you

Rated 3 out of 5áby LNell Please bring back the original fit!
Purchased 3 of these over the years and love them. Would like to have another but tried the new longer fit and it is not flattering. As others have requested, please bring back the original!

Rated 4 out of 5áby NE2PNW Warm and Soft
The fleece is great -- warm, soft, and comfy. It's a thinner fleece, which is what I wanted. I wanted a fleece that would be good for everyday wear, but also for traveling (light-weight and packable) and hiking/camping. This fleece is great for those purposes. However, I took off one star because it does run large. On the other hand, I like the length and overall cut.

Rated 5 out of 5áby knittingmomof3 Perfect for Inside and Out
I purchased several of the Fitness Fleece jackets as I tend to be chilly indoors and the climate I live in does not require a much heavier outside jacket. The colors are gorgeous and the jackets wash and wear quite well. I have a long torso and I was pleasantly surprised that the regular length was perfect. Per my LL Bean purchases of the past few months, the sizing of each jacket was slightly different, not enough that it bothered me, but enough that it is noticeable. Overall, I will continue to buy these and hope LL Bean fixes the inconsistency issues in their clothing as of late and continues to make shirts and jackets longer.

Rated 5 out of 5áby a1bp Love the longer length!
I'm ordering my second jacket. I love the longer length and the smooth inside makes it very easy to layer over a long-sleeved top (it doesn't stick to the fabric and bunch up).

Rated 5 out of 5áby tealover my "go to" fleece for everything
I have bought a few of these, usually in black because it goes with everything, I take them everywhere even in summer when the air conditioning in places drives me crazy.
I do wish the length was shorter, I liked them a couple of inches shorter as they were made a couple of years back. and, I am so fed up of the color choices. The "new" colors listed are the same as, or very close to, ones I have in my closet. I just checked out the Thistle color, already have that from 2 or 3 years ago. A couple more choices of blue shades would be great.
Don't ever stop selling these!!

Rated 5 out of 5áby meckie it's lightweight, not flimsy or cheap at all!
I have a very very veryold LL bean 3/4 zip lightweight fleece (has stood the test of time, YAY ll bean) when the older style was shorter....maybe it's cuz i'm older now but I like the bum covering length! I am also new to full zips, and i really like the versatility.....makes it dressier, and great for those hotflashes LOL Also I am between sizes, so it's a tad roomy but drapes well (when standing) and is completely flattering for a short waisted person with small hips; enough so that i can wear it over my work clothes. The pockets do not create bulk at all. It's verycold now, but this works as an underlayer or house sweater, and will be perfect for spring and fall hiking and bopping around town.
Although i have finally learned to wear neutrals, i just HAD to have the plum rose PINK NOW!!!
I recently spent twice as much on a similar jacket....but i like this one better! I can see another one of these in my near future.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LailafromWpg Great but generous fit
Purchased this full zip fleece in a small cream colour -- I igh 145 lbs. an am between 5'7" and 5'8" tall. I have had the 1/4 zip feece in the past and liked it but wanted the full zip for ease. Fit is the same; good lines and not box but quite generous in the fit. Lots of room to layer underneath. I like it so much with the full zip I may order it in black, too! This fleece is thinner, great for cool summer nights or transitional times as well as to layer with other items.
