Rated 2 out of 5 by IcicleAdventurer Bring back old colors
Great durable sweatshirts! My boys love these for PA fall and spring weather...I would love to buy them the next sizes up because they truly are a great product, but I ABHOR the new colors! Maybe if I had a toddler, but a lot of bigger boys here don't like the mixed brighter colors. I guess I just don't understand the obsession with mixing of colors recently. Maybe it's supposed to be a retro trend--I feel like I'm back in the 80's or early 90's. That being said, I have two of the orange and one of the blue with "oatmeal" lining that have been heavily worn for camping, school, on my sister's farm, and at our cabin by both of my 6 & 9 y/o boys (2 have been handed down to the younger for size) and I don't think there are any stains on them, so I can't see that making the liner darker would be a valid reason. The only damage to the one is a tiny hole where a rabbit bit through the sleeve--I haven't even noticed any other snags! So, if you like the new colors, buy the sweatshirt! And LL Bean, why change a great product? Please bring some of the old colors back or I will be searching elsewhere for what is probably a lower quality product that looks better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JMajewski Exactly what I was looking for
My child had a hoody that he was just in LOVE with but had outgrown and broken the zipper on. Because it had been given to us I had no idea how to replace it. While on vacation in NJ I spotted the EXACT hoody I was looking for in your window!! I couldn't believe my luck and the fact that I had never thought to look at Bean's in the first place. We live in AZ so this is the PERFECT winter jacket. It is just the the right heaviness for our really "cold" days. I have returned since to purchase other great clothes for my son. Thanks for having exactly what I was looking for!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by EWC15 Best Zip Hoodie ever!
My son still wears this jacket every day 1.5 years after we purchased it. I wash it at least once a week and sometimes more and it is still great looking! It is perfect. I originally purchased the Navy with the oatmeal colored lining. It is the best color. He has hit a growth spurt so I needed to order a larger size. I just ordered two more, one in the orange with the navy lining (too bright for me but my 12 year old son likes it), and the sage green with the navy lining (I like this color much better). However I still prefer the natural/oatmeal color for the lining, which is not available any more. I highly recommend this jacket. It is so cozy and comfortable, my son never wants to take it off. Like a warm hug!

Rated 5 out of 5 by melneps had to get 1 in every size
I particularly like the ones with different colored stitching. Got my son one in every size because I know he's going to wear it almost everyday. Its so comfy, its like wearing a robe outside the house (mom has 1 too).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zephia My son adores this
My son call this his "fuzzy" and wears it every day after getting home from school. He left it at school one day and was nearly in tears. I'm thinking I better buy a back-up.
I like it too :) The "fuzzy" part has stayed fuzzy through dozens of washes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by trueblue4 My sons Favorite Jacket!
My son calls this jacket his army jacket. It is so soft like butter, inside and out! It is very warm and comfortable. He wears it year round and just about every single day! He's wearing it in almost every picture because he never takes it off! It's in the wash now, otherwise he'd wear it to school today. He wore size 8 for a few years, and as soon as it was too small, I got him a 10/12. Please, please, please, make more of these in camo for when I need to get him size 14!!! I could see him wearing it until he was 100, so maybe make them in every size forever!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MNTheRealUpNorth Kids Fleece Hoodie
It was exactly what I was looking for. My 2 year old is comfortable, warm, and it's an LL Bean so the quality is there.
Would buy again!

Rated 2 out of 5 by BizCasual Thinner than prior version
I bought the fleeced lined hoodie two years ago and loved how thick it was and how warm it was. The boys have outgrown the prior ones and I bought two more in larger sizes, thinking it would be the same warmth and thickness. It is not. The new jackets are thinner and not the same quality. I'm very disappointed how quality deteriorates over time. Seems to be happening at many retailers. Our money just doesn't go as far and we end up with inferior products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JCAnewalt Luxurious Zipper Hoodie
My son hates large coats - this was the perfect solution. The blue color is deep vet vibrant. The lining is plush - typical LL Bean quality.
