Rated 5 out of 5áby DishyP Great lightweight fleece for layering, indoor wear
Some people have complained in these reviews that this jacket is cheap & flimsy, so they give it a bad review. There are different weights for fleece so you can wear it in different circumstances! None of this should be a surprise since LLB describes it accurately. This is "Fitness" fleece which is one of their lightest weight fleeces (presumably you could be active in it outdoors without getting overheated). It is also perfect for layering and wearing indoors where a heavy fleece would be too hot. If you want a heavier fleece, order "Comfort" or "Trail Model" fleece or one of the other fleeces that are heavier weight. The lighter weight of this fleece is intentional and much appreciated. I have several of these and they wash and wear very well over time (they are not flimsy).

Rated 5 out of 5áby NCliving Love it!
I received my first LLBean fleece jacket a few days ago and I'm thrilled. I ordered my regular size, which fits nicely. It has a lovely feminine shape and is very flattering. I chose the pink, with the intent of wearing it into the spring. The jacket is amazingly soft and comfortable. I paired it with a white boatneck tee, which just sets it off. I will be ordering more! Oh, and after washing and drying it in the dryer, it looks just like new.

Rated 4 out of 5áby jonelle Runs large
I have a fitness fleece from a few years ago in a size large. Love it and finally was ordering another one. However, they run really, really big now. Will be exchanging this one for a size medium.

Rated 5 out of 5áby CAoutdoors "Go to" lightweight jacket
I live in these jackets when I walk or ride my mountain bike several days a week. This is not meant to be a super warm jacket so choose another if that's what you're looking for. I like the slightly fitted look and it's great for layering under a down vest on cooler days. I also fold it up and throw it in my tote bag when I go to work as an evening-shift nurse. The outside never pills and I wash/dry it without any special care concerns. Love it!!

Rated 1 out of 5áby auralouise THIN AND DOES NOT FEEL LIKE FLEECE
Very light weight. No warmth. This is not what fleece is supposed to be. very disappointed. Size okay. 5'6" and 135 lbs. Medium fits
well. Might have been able to try a small, but will not be interested in this product anymore.

Rated 3 out of 5áby MadisonNJShopper Not quite what I expected
This fleece is true to size and well made. However, I wasn't as pleased with the kind of fleece as I expected. It is a very lightweight fleece on the outside, but the inside is smooth and feels like a polyester material type smooth.
I've had other LLBean fleeces which I've liked better.

Rated 5 out of 5áby cvgjax Finally in Petite!
Thank you. I am so happy that these are now available in Petite. I have over a dozen in the Regular Small, but they are on the snug side. Nevertheless, I wear one almost every day as they are just the right weight. Now I can have just the right fit as well.
The Medium Petite is Perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5áby EclecticCanadian Petite is perfect
I normally take a petite M in LL Bean clothing, and this jacket fits just as it should; shaped to the body, but not tight anywhere. I am 5'-2" and 130lbs. My favourite thing about this lightweight jacket is the collar/neck! When I have it fully zipped, the top of the collar, and the zipper come to well below my chin, yet still keeps the chill out; when it is unzipped, it looks quite discreet. Such a very welcome change from the usual collar/neck in this style of jacket.
The fleece is light weight, and very soft. In the winter time I keep my house in the mid-to-high sixties, and this is the perfect sweater to keep warm in. I imagine it will be a terrific summer jacket for chilly evenings.

Rated 4 out of 5áby LovesHorsesAndDogs Thin fleece, but lovely, soft and comfortable too.
I have a hard time differentiating among the different fleece types. This one is definitely very thin, and not exactly designed to keep out the cold of a New England winter. But, it is extremely soft, the color is lovely, and the fit is comfortably loose. Although I was hoping for a thicker jacket to replace a fleece I've had for many years, this will useful for layering and also good in the warmer weather. It is a keeper for me.
