Rated 3 out of 5 by dogged1 Not As Expected
I bought this to wear as a layer because I am frequently outdoors. The red azelea color was totally beautiful, but the zipper stuck. The material was much lighter weight than I thought, so not as warm as I expected.This garment fit very close to the body, although I am slender but broad-shouldered. I think if I were to wash it even in cold water, it might be too tight. Earlier, I ordered two of the LL Bean Polartec trail model fleece jackets in this size and they fit great, even after laundering. Those are toasty, so customers might want to consider them instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CaveatTalonWager Softest fleece ever
I've loved these fleece jackets for many years, and they seem to just keep getting better and better. The most current version is softer than ever before, even on the inside part that is against your skin. Over the years the evolution of this jacket has become more flattering to a woman's shape. Contoured at the waist and longer than it's predecessor of the past (about 8 years ago), this current jacket is one that I never want to take off. I wear them all winter, both around the house and even when I go out to dinner with friends. It's a super versatile garment to have in your closet.
I am fairly tall and find this jacket to be plenty long enough. The large fits me perfectly, which is what I typically wear in LLBean's clothing. The fit is true.
I was happy to get mine on sale and the colors (Cornflower Blue and Antique Plum) are gorgeous!...bright and pretty and accurate to what I see on my computer screen. Couldn't be happier with these jackets!

Rated 3 out of 5 by inMD not great
Loved this at first. It's a great thicker weight. But, after a few months and a couple of washings, it looks worn out and matted, especially at the elbows. Thank goodness for LLBean's guarantee. I'll be sending this one back for a refund. It's too expensive to look so worn out in only a few months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Babbage I love comfort fleece!
I was so happy to find that the comfort fleece standup collar was finally offered in Petites. I ordered two of them, got them today, and promptly put them on.
I have been ordering them in regular sizes but they've never fit quite right so I wore them around the house. I love the Tidal Blue and Blue Pine, but would be in heaven if it was offered in Blue Radiance or even a pure white.
These are my Winter staple item of clothing along with the boot cut perfect fit. Please offer all the comfort fleece styles in Petites and a lot more Petites in general!

Purchased item for Christmas gift for daughter and produce was WAY to small. Workmanship was excellent and met expectation but was disappointed on the size difference.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EvergreenW Different color than coral
The coral color is more of a bright pink. My husband said Pepto Bismo . But I still like it, so I will keep it, because it is so warm, like the cream vest I have, which is the same material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by boyser confortable, warm, attractive
These comfort fleece jackets are my favorite. I wear them almost every day. I have them with the hood and without and love them both. They are alittle pricy, but since I wear them so much I spend the extra money. I wholeheartedly recommend this product to women of all ages particularly 50 and up. I would like the jacket in some new colors like brown and camel. Thank you llbean for such a wonderful product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by coldincalif Comfort Fleece, Stand-Up-Collar Jacket
So far so good. Ordered this in a size XL in the color black. The sleeves are long on it but they roll up nicely to make a cuff and is otherwise a good overall fit. I like this and it is warm and a lot heavier than some of the fleece being sold. I do have a concern however and that is the quality and durability of the zipper. While it works ok now, I wonder how long it will continue to work properly? I've had a lot of problems in the past with items I've bought from LLBEAN and other places on items with cheap low quality zippers on them. It is too bad they did not make it a two-way zipper is my suggestion. The pockets are good and I'm glad they don't have tiny little zippers on them. Overall, I would recommend this fleece jacket and I'd say it fits true to size. I hope this lasts a long time and I have ordered another one in the burgundy color before it sells out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by HonestShopper Pilling
I agree with some reviewers who complained about a pilling problem. Especially the cuff area of my jacket had a severe pilling. If you are looking for a better quality fleece jacket, I strongly recommend Wind Challenger Fleece Jackets from L.L.Bean. I have been wearing the jacket years, and never had a pilling problem.

This is my new FAVORITE fleece sweater. The Red Azalea is so bright and pretty, I get compliments every time I wear it. The fit is cozy and soft, warm and comfortable. Beautiful jacket which is becoming a collector item in my closet! Keep them coming!
