Rated 5 out of 5 by MountainHighWoman Soft, warm, great fit, excellent buy!
This jacket is very soft and well designed even for XL size, even the pockets are warm. The inside and out is marshmallow-soft fleece like a baby blanket, not thin but not too thick, unusually cozy even compared with other fleece jackets. It has a nice invisible zipper. Can't praise this jacket enough! i wear it inside and outside depending upon the temperature, zipped or unzipped. It's just perfect for all seasons in our mountain climate in Colorado.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amy88 My Good Luck!
I purchased this jacket at a thrift store and can't believe my luck -- it's fabulous, and I'm happily buying another (from LLBean, of course) for myself and for a friend. Cozy, warm, a great fit, and I'm often wearing it in the house over a camisole or lite T-shirt. If I'm too warm, I can unzip and continue to be comfortable, or I can zip-up and take the dogs into the backyard. It's truly all-purpose!

Well made, cozy,true to size, nice mid weight fabric.
I always size up so I can have a little more room.
I would definitely buy more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DeathwokClan Not fitted at all.
According to my wife this is great material, lovely color, but the medium is anything but fitted. The shoulders are perfect as is the sleeve length, but when zipped up, the belly area pooches out in an unattractive way. There seems to be about 2 inches of extra material around the middle. Perhaps this will level out over time as she wears it, but initial feelings are that this has a baggy look.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MALTESELOVER Poor Quality
I'm a major fan of LLBean products; they have always been high quality but not this jacket. I bought the same jacket a year ago and it now looks like I've had it ten years. It pills easily and became flimsy after probably two washings. It picks up everything and a lint remover isn't even effective. I bought another one thinking maybe the quality had improved but it is the same jacket so am returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jb51 Great winter alternative to a blazer!
I am a big fan of comfort fleece jackets and have purchased them in their various incarnations over the past 6 years. I began wearing this latest style last winter and like it the best...it has classic, flattering lines and is made of quality fleece that looks good after many launderings. I am a teacher, and wear this to school on cold winter days instead of a blazer, it fits true to size and is SO comfortable. It can be dressed up with nice slacks and a scarf or dressed down with jeans and a t shirt. Bravo, Bean! Keep making this, please.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ishop4value Great Jacket!!
I am delighted with the jacket -- the fleece is very soft, the zipper works smoothly, and the cream color is perfect! It fits well through the body (size small). Sleeves are a bit long (I am 5' with short arms), but the cuff turns back beautifully to just the right length. Length is fine -- I would prefer a petite, but this will work well. I expect to wear the jacket outside in fall and spring and indoors in the winter. I am almost always very pleased with LL Bean products -- this is another winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by onlineshopper15039 Favorite jacket
This is my favorite as I can use as a light jacket in spring and fall and then wear indoors in winter. Like it better than sweaters or sweats due to the ease of washing and drying and no pilling. Own 15 as I order new colors every year and never had one shed nor wear out. Love the new dark claret color for this year. It is a beautiful deep burgundy darker in color than my monitor indicated. Just wish a matching long sleeve tee was available to make a set.

Rated 1 out of 5 by PocoAllergo Item failure
I bought this fleece to replace the same item I purchased two years ago. Quality control where are you?? This item has half the weight of the previous one, and most important is the zipper!! It is a ladies dress zippper, not a fleece zipper. I live in Vermont and have many fleeces and this is the cheapest, poorest construction that I have ever purchased on line. if you want quality and function, do not purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JennyBr Perfect!
Just received this jacket, bought it to wear at work. It is truly freezing in my office. It is a beautifully made jacket. Very warm, very soft and comfy, and actually very flattering on. I love the length and the side shaping. I ordered a large, which is my normal size, and it fits well. Got the rose mist, and it is a very pretty color.The zipper so far is smooth and easy to zip. Hopefully will stay that way. Definitely buying at least one more for the fall and winter.
