Rated 3 out of 5 by Mallel Declining quality
I agree with a comment from one of the other reviewers. First year I bought one of these, I think if was in 2013/2014, I bought one in every color as the jackets were so soft inside and out. The next year I bought another one and the fleece indeed was very different, the quality was much poorer than the originals - inside of the jacket is scratchy and doesn't breathe - almost like a plastic feel. I thought maybe it was a one off for that color. The following year (2016) I bought 3 more as the ones from 2013/2014 were showing their wear! And indeed they all were that same cheap feeling material. The quality of the fleece is not up to par LL Bean and I won't be buying anymore of theses. Very sad.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Seacoast101 Thin fabric and skimpy fit
The fabric on this fleece is soft but amazingly thin--almost like a heavy flannel sheet. Also, the fit is skimpy. I am 5'3" size 4 top and Small-Petite is fine for other LL Bean items but this one has barely-to-the-wrist sleeves. Zipper is very hard to engage. Can't recommend this one!

Rated 2 out of 5 by mbbeezer Disappointed Solid Light Blue Fitness Jacket
I have bought many many of these jackets. Each time the quality is not as good as the original. My biggest complaint is the inside of the sleeves are scratchy on the skin, not sure why. My other complaint is the size and depth of the zip pockets are smaller and make it difficult to secure anything inside the pocket without zipping. We need the room in these pockets please stop decreasing the size. I wear these little jackets all the time, but doubt I will buy any new ones till you improve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by baylaurel Bring back the cream color please
Love the fitness fleece and have had several over the years. My favorite has always been the cream color as it goes with everything. It was the perfect shade of off-white. Waiting for the cream fitness fleece jacket to return!

Rated 4 out of 5 by rbg23 Sleeves too short
I got this in the Dusty Navy Heather and love the color, fit, and fabric. It is a beautiful lightweight fleece. However, the sleeves were too short for me and I find myself yanking them down to cover my wrists.Kept it anyways since the fleece looks so nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by luvfiddling Beautiful fleece
I bought this in the Navy Heather, in a petite. It is a wonderful color, more of a periwinkle really. It's stretchy, well-made, and lightweight. A great fitness jacket, or for cool/not cold weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TLMaine So soft
I had to buy a second color after receiving the first. The softness is just so comfortable to wear!

One can never have too many fitness fleeces. The weight, the fit are ohhh so wonderful. My vote is for evergreen, dark rich green, Dartmouth green please - Mr L.L. Bean please add this color - it would be a good addition

Rated 4 out of 5 by crookedtoes fitness fleece
This replaced a five year old fleece jacket from ll bean, I didn't realize when ordering (it was on sale) that this said "fitness", so perhaps that is why its thinner than my old one. Zipper is nice, has pocket/zipper on arm for key or such which is very useful, just was hoping on my end for a little thicker jacket.
haven't washed yet but seems a pretty solid product as it went well with "my" zipper test. Fabric is soft, which is very nice. again, for me the only drawback is its not thick for those days you want to walk outside and that is your coat, for me it wouldn't give me the warmth needed.
