I ordered this sweater for my husband as a Christmas present. It was excellent quality and fits him perfect. I would say the XL is not super big, so if you are a larger person order up. He loves it.

This is a beautiful sweater that is well made.Although it is not wind proof it provides a good layer for a windbreaker or jacket. I have received a lot of compliments on this item.

Great sweater! Tough to find sweaters I like, but this is perfect. Warm, comfortable, and doesn't itch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by HisDudeness Warm and breathable
Warm and soft but enough air can move through it that I don't get overly hot indoors. Had a small hiccup in the shipping but L.L. Bean more than satisfied me with their outstanding customer service. The problem was resolved over one five minute phone call in which I didn't have to complain, demand or beg for anything! In the middle of a busy Christmas season what a pleasure. This more than anything will guarantee my patronage.

A couple of days ago I wrote a review about this sweater, stating I was returning it. I did return it. I did hang it outside for a day, and the odor did cut back, but not entirely before I returned it. Because of the terrific style and fit, I returned to the store and bought it back. (It was still in the store, back room!) Seems keeping this sweater in a plastic bag, as it was shipped from LL Bean and stored in their store until we opened the bag when I repurchased it, kept the lanolin fragrance. I will keep the sweater out for awhile and hope that the lanolin smell disappears totally! Might even add a dash of cologne!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ColdMichigander5 As always, great
I bought the bright navy donegal sweater and love it already. For sizing, I'm 6' 1", 170 lbs, ~38 in chest, ~34 in arms - I bought a medium and it is an excellent fit, length is good and sleeves are good (which are my big concern in going with a medium usually). It's a wool sweater so obviously it isn't going to be a trim cut, that being said, it isn't overly bulky or anything like that - it's perfect for a sweater like this. You can tell it's a good quality and will last a very long time, as with all things LL Bean. It is very warm and comfy.
I was worried with the darker blue color that the patterns wouldn't be very noticeable, but they still pop clearly for that classic fisherman sweater look. I will say, as a knit sweater, there are some very small areas that you can see through the knitting as a result of the patterns, but it's really only noticeable if you're looking for it and if you're wearing a white or other lighter colored shirt underneath. I've had my eyes on this sweater for a long time but was hesitant with the cost, but I'm very happy I finally bought it.

I have never owned an article of clothing that has received so much notice and so many compliments. I have yet to wear this beautiful sweater without someone commenting on its good looks. Temps are in the 70's this week, but as soon as the cool weather returns I'll be wearing this sweater more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by scogar Poorly made and overpriced
I purchased this sweater hoping for a life long warm sweater. The name fisherman sweater indicates a garment that might be worn in the environment were cold wet weather would need protection from, well let me tell you it fails on ever account.
The knit is so poorly done that you can see through it with huge gaps. When on you can see the shirt bellow. When walking inside the house the air flows through it completely through it. It would never keep you warm outside or in inclement weather. For the price and from LL bean for the terrible quality was unexpected and disappointing
Save your money and your time and get a different sweater. It ISN'T a fisherman sweater its only styled that way.
