Rated 5 out of 5 by murph1201 Not your ordinary hoodie...it's delightful!
Sounds like an odd adjective to describe a "sweatshirt"- but this is anything but...The lining is the softest, most plush fleece- like your favorite stuffed animal...and the outer fabric is softly brushed. I purchased the green- a subtle, neutral, season spanning color. This would make a wonderful gift for a woman of any age...starting with teens. It will definitely become my go to jacket!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lindsoles Perfect...except too dang short
I can not even describe how much I LOVE this hoodie. It is thick, warm and the lining is AWESOME. EXCEPT....unless you are short (less than probably 5'6) the hoodie is too short. My husband bought me one last Christmas and I do love it, but when he asked me if I wanted another one for Christmas this year I had to tell him "No" simply because of the length. I really wish LLBean would read these reviews and make this sweatshirt longer or offer a longer length. Many of the men's sweatshirt are offered in two lengths, why not women? Looking at the reviews, I am not the only one who feels this way. I would buy all the colors if it was a reasonable length! If you are less than 5'6 I would recommend this sweatshirt, if you are taller...don't bother.

I found this sweatshirt jacket at a client's house. She is my size so I slipped it on and couldn't order my own fast enough. Hers was a beautiful true navy, but it was unavailable in my size so I bought the gray and I'm very happy with the color. I've had this jacket abt 6 weeks. I LOVE it!! It is warm to low 30's. I walk the dog in it in the November Northwest. I've never had a hooded jacket before and I use it. Keeping the air off my neck adds much warmth. It would be 5 star perfect if the hood had a draw string so I could snug it around my head. I could just tie a scarf around my neck but I haven't needed it yet.
I washed it for the first time today. No shrinkage and the fabulously soft, silky fleece lining remained just so. If the navy becomes available again, I might buy it too. The fit is perfect for my 2x pear shaped bod. There is room for a light weight sweater. The zipper is strong and works well.

I bought this item last year in a Berry color. I absolutely love it to the point that I just ordered it in Emerald Teal. Its true to size and so snugly warm. It washes well. No shrinkage. It is worth the price and does not compare to anything in retail stores. The staff is always helpful on the phone. They really appreciate there customers. If you call you get a person right away. I'll be back because I LOVE LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kimmy49 warm & cozy
I absolutely love this sweatshirt! It is so warm & cozy, I would love to own a few more for the winter so I don't have to be without it when it needs to be laundered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WSUGoCougs Very Comfortable and nice fit!
So glad I got this fleece hoodie, it is wonderful. The fleece is just the right weight and like a baby blanket, so soft. The color selection is great and larkspur heathered is very nice. Wish they had a light pink. The fit is good also, not baggy loose but just slightly fitted. A Great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaryAlice7 Fleece-lined hoodie full zip
I have one of these in Grey Heather and I love it. My size is generally a 10-12 so I purchased the medium and it fits great, even has a bit of room for wearing a sweater or flannel shirt underneath .
The lining is very soft as well as the outside , I wash it in warm and put it in the dryer on low. It still keeps it's shape and does not shrink.
Ready to purchase another in the violet chalk. love it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PB2B If only it didn't have zippers on the pockets
This is a great sweatshirt, but I put my hands in my pockets a lot. The zippers make doing so really uncomfortable. So I no longer wear it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JWGC too heavy (not warm, but HEAVY)
This jacket looked so cute, but my arm dropped to the ground when I picked it up. I should have weighed it before returning it to know exactly how heavy it was. It was REALLY heavy, much heavier than my warmest winter coat.
It's one thing to wear a heavy jacket when you have it on all the time. But jackets are worn in seasons when they come on and off depending on the time of day, wind level, slant of the sun, and so forth. I can't imagine tying this around my waist or stuffing it in a backpack.
Had to return it...
