Rated 5 out of 5 by DogWalkerATL Great fit; doesn't shrink
My husband has this in navy and wore it all winter last year. It sits beautifully and is comfortable, and -- most importantly -- the sleeves don't shrink after the wash! He wore it so much last winter that when the dark loden went on sale, I knew it was time to buy another one. Thanks for a good, solid product, LL Bean!

Rated 3 out of 5 by ibupnorth01 Collar needs work
This quarter-zip sweat top (gray, size XL for my 46 inch chest) looks nice, has good weight to it, and feels great. However, I would recommend it to a friend with a major reservation.
The issue I have is the last inch of the collar closest to the zipper makes a slight upward turn which causes the end of the zipper to ride against my chin when I turn my head. It absolutely drives me crazy when I'm driving since it's more of an issue when sitting. A lot of the authors of the two-star ratings mention the same issue. If you look at the picture of the person modeling the sweater you can see how close the end of the zipper is to the chin. Zipping the sweater up fixes the problem somewhat but I often run warm so that's not always an option. A better fix would be for the collar to be angled down slightly starting two inches on each side of the zipper or shorten all of the collar at least a quarter inch.
The collar situation is unfortunate because this sweater really is wonderfully constructed - I mean exceptionally neat and well made. An athletic fit version would be a nice touch but it isn't exactly a dress sweater so forget I even wrote this sentence. I'm hoping after several more wear/wash cycles the neck fabric will relax a little and the end of the zipper won't be an issue. This would be a five-star sweater for me then.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SyracuseNY Awesome style and fit for a big guy
I'm 6'1", 255, and wear a shirt size 18 1/2 - 19 neck, 37-38" sleeve.
I ordered a XXL Tall, and this sweatshirt fits fantastic. Nice length in the arms and torso, with just the right amount of room to spare. It looks great in the office too, over a nice polo shirt.
Such a great sweatshirt I ordered a second. Very warm and heavy. Nothing like the cheap weight you commonly see in big stores. This shirt has substance!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jonbon Great Sweatshirt!
My husband loves this quarter-zip sweatshirt and owns it in several colors. It looks nicer and is more flattering than a simple crewneck, and he wears one most days with a tee peeking out at the neckline. They wash and wear well, and I would say the sizing is right on to just a bit generous. Happy to see additional colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DoctorRHA Precisely as advertised
As usual, LLBean provides exactly the sizing and quality of material (though somewhat pricey) it advertises. Fabrics wear well and survive multiple washings in good condition. Customer service people are knowledgeable, polite, efficient, and good-humored.
