Rated 4 out of 5 by TDCthefirst pricey
Saw this online and had to have it. I've never seen a wool hoodie! The sweatshirt is a little thinner than I hoped but is fine. It is more of a med weight weave. The quality looks good and is comfortable when worn.
It is still to warm to wear the sweatshirt so I can't review it's performance. My only complaint is I'm 6'2 and ordered the regular. The sleeves fit good but I would like the body length to be longer. The sleeves would have been to long on the long size though. (I don't like rolling up my sleeves). The last complaint is the shirt is over priced. You can get a much thicker sweater for cheaper.
All and all I am happy with the sweater.

He has two and wears one most days, cool summer nights, cold winter nights. Fortunately they wash well. They're soft, comfortable, and look nice. Keep stocking them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Athalon Marino wool hoody black
A very tight weave surface with a low nap internal finish.
Heavier than it looks ,but pictures can not show everything.
Marino wool from the goat is a tough yarn and insulates very well.
By design it is not a pocket haven . It has two large pockets with two smaller inside those with velcro for small items.
Fit is generous, a light long sleeve shirt could go under the garment with ease. The hood needs no draw strings if you use it with the front zipped to the top. It can be washed and dried to directions .
A good purchase for the price spent.

This is a great sweatshirt, good quality, warm, and great detail on stitching. I would prefer Pink but since it is for my husband Olive Green is a perfect match.Love the quality that I receive from LL Bean.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Doughg Well build, well priced
But it fits like a burlap bag. I hope it shrinks. I'm a large but I'm swimming in this sweatshirt. You need to look at the hood before you buy this. Its really well made. Its threatening to pill up, only time will tell. Great lite weight, great warmth for weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mulie best all purpose winter gear yet
I bought this sweatshirt two years ago. It fits like a zip sweatshirt should, no bagging, stretching or sagging. Merino wool is absolutely non itch...forget about polypro wicking anything. This is an underlayer when hunting, a casual grab it and go for everything else and is much, much warmer for the weight than any other fabric including cotton, fleece, or any synthetic. It is warm when wet, has not needed cleaning yet and is my favorite winter gear. Please bring it back in red again, and I will buy that too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bengy Merino Wool Hoodie
This hoodie is the finest merino garment I have seen. I use it all winter. Not only is it warm it can be worn next to the skin without being itchy. I wear it for hunting and dress as well. It gives me another garment for layering when it gets real cold. If you are looking for that garment that will do the job this it. It will take the chill off when nothing else will. L.L. Bean has another OUTSTANDING product here. Try it you will not be dissapointed

I purchased this item just prior to a lengthy overseas assignment. It's been a few months since the purchase and it's finally cool enough to use it in the early mornings and late evenings. The Merino wool is a plus for comfort and performs well during cool and windy weather conditions. It's nice and warm even during my frequent open cockpit helo flights. Between washing's and a few rainstorms, the jacket has held up well and it smells fine. It was a bit pricey compared to the other cotton, nylon and polyester options, but I believe it's a good value and expect to have it for many years. The hood is the subject of some negative comments in other reviews. I just roll it into the collar and notice no problems with fit and visibility. I would have rated it at five stars if they offered it in a few more reasonable colors. I hope LL Bean offers additional wool and other natural products. It's a home run.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bigred93 perfect for fall - warm, fits great
Perfect around the house warm hoodie for fall. Runs a bit large, but that's a good thing for layering. Soft, comfortable, mid-heavyweight fabric. Very happy with the product.
