Rated 5 out of 5 by Lowertech Handsome and cozy!
It is rare to find a women's hooded jacket in a good loden green. When I saw this one online I decided to give it a try. I ordered it in large to accommodate layers underneath. I love it! The color is really lovely, and the material is brushed on the inside, making it warm and cozy on a chilly fall day. The outside is smooth and soft. The zipper creates a turtleneck effect when fully closed. The hood is built in, and does not have a drawstring, but it makes a nice neck warner when the zipper is at the top. The sleeves a long enough, which is not always the case. I plan to wash it very carefully, but there is enough room for a little shrinkage if that does happen... All in all I am very pleased with this jacket. It is a perfect autumn color and weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Outdoorsy2014 Warm, not hot.
This sweatshirt is cozy and warm, but not heavy and hot. It's roomy, but doesn't look or feel like it was made by "Omar the Tent Maker". The feel is light and soft and comfortable. The wool fabric has a very nice appearance and so far has not been a magnet for pet hair. Now if your cats sleep on you that might be a problem, otherwise you should be able to walk through your house w/o collecting the fuzzy look. I love the feel of this sweatshirt and the quality is excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AFL130 Merino Wool Hooded Sweatshirt
This sweatshirt is a quality item but unfortunately it is too long for me. I am 5' 3" and 145 lbs. I can wear regular or petite. I ordered a large because I don't like to be confined and wanted to be able to wear something under it. It fits comfortably all over except it covers my rear so I am sad to say that I have to return. I like sweatshirts to be shorter than that which is the reason I only gave 4 stars. I hope they make petite in the future and then I will order another one.

Wonderful. Taking it on a cruise to Iceland and Ireland where
I expect cold and rainy. With a raincoat should be enough.
Fit is good. Hidden pockets fit traveling well. Fitted hood

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rosefolly Favorite sweatshirt ever
I love this merino wool sweatshirt so much that I just ordered a second one exactly like the first one. I'm going to put it away so that when the first one finally wears out, I'll have another one waiting for me. It is much warmer than a cotton or cotton-poly sweatshirt, and breathes much better than a synthetic fleece jacket. The loden color is a sort of dark olive, one of my favorite colors, and hard to find at times.
The label says that it is machine washable. I have chosen to handwash it, roll it in a towel, then dry it flat. It came out beautifully.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tully Nice sweatshirt
This merino wool sweatshirt is light, thin and warm. I love the rich material and its practicality, including the army green color. However, the sweatshirt body and sleeves are too long for a petite like myself. I had to return it with regrets. LLBean, please make these for petite size customers and also add a few more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by blackbird2 Best surprise ever!
I put off getting this for a year because of the price, but am so glad I did. Soft, thick, light, warm, comfortable, attractive and well-made. Perfect for travel (doesn't wrinkle) or chilly days. If the pockets could safely hold a cell phone it would be perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aussieyankee Super comfy
This zip up hoodie is so comfy and perfect for layering. Love the cut and the fit and the fabric is lovely and soft. My only critique is that it pills on the inside pretty badly - even from the first wash.

Rated 2 out of 5 by pinkopaque wish it had more of a woman's fit
I wish this had more of a woman's fit. I'm curvy, and the XL fit me in the torso (a bit tight at the hips), but the arms and shoulders were huge and baggy. It felt like wearing a men's sweatshirt. Too expensive for what it was and a poor fit - had to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GreyC Came back to order another!
Came back to order another merino wool sweatshirt. Sadly, they are out of my size! When L.L. Bean reorders this fall, hopefully the size/style and shape does not change. I also appreciate the basic colors and quality. Thank you for carrying something from a that is good quality that fits under the hunting line. Often times things like this are reserved only for the men department.
If you are wondering about this size, it is true to size. I am a tall woman of average size, and the length and sleeves are perfect. Maybe because it is made from quality merino wool that there are no corners being cut in the size? So regular and tall people would be happy with this, petite...not so much.
This is worth every penny. It wears wonderfully and washes beautifully. Please restock ASAP. This sweatshirt is so perfect I want to stock up before it is gone!
