Rated 4 out of 5 by SuburbanRecycler Nice jacket & color
I bought the Comfort Fleece zip up jacket in a deep tidal teal. The color is darker than pictured, but I like it. Fits well & is cozy. I would have given it 5 stars, BUT the upper-arm sleeves are too narrow, making it difficult to get on & off. I decided not to return it, since I like the color so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by iamascgirl Comfortable, warm, & a good fit
I recently moved from FL to SC & am having trouble dealing with the cooler temperatures so I ordered 2 of these vests. I have the gray & the purple (not the right name but the color is lovely) & I just love them. I wear one or the other just about every day. They wash well & are holding up well. I have been wearing them for about 3 weeks only & I hope they hold up over the long haul. No pilling so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by gniwer Not what I expected
Based on a LLBean fleece jacket that I bought many years ago I ordered this jacket in regular L. It is poorer in fit and features than my old one: too wide/boxy at the bottom, lighter zipper, no zippers at the pockets, self seams instead of binding. Would have to insert elastic into the back bottom seam and roll up the sleeves to make it work. I will return this item and hope that the replacement I have ordered (Trail Fleece Jacket petite L) will fit better.

Love this fleece jacket! The "deep tidal" color is nice, and the feminine fit is perfect for me--a slender, petite. The fabric is so soft.

I have 1 hooded jacket, 2 stand-up-collar jackets and 1 vest and want more. Where are the hooded jackets?? What happened? This is such nice style. I don't care for the athletic-looking ones, with zippers on the sleeve, pockets or chest. I am not an athlete, and I don't want to look like one. Just give me a nice looking jacket. I love the outside and hidden second inside pockets on the Comfort Fleece. The quality of the vest was a little bit more on the flimsy side.
No problem with pilling and the zipper, as mentioned in other reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by franny1949 Beautiful Warm Polartec Jacket
Lost weight and gave away some old L.L. Bean polartecs last year. I ordered two of these jackets - one XL (perfect fit) and the other 1 X (too large). Called customer service and the rep. was so helpful ! She told me about a color that wasn't even listed online. Exchanged the 1 X for XL - very smooth transaction. The jackets are soft and good quality polartec, just like the ones I still own from 20 years ago, which still look great after so many washings (I always wash cold gentle and hang them to dry). The colors of these new jackets are lovely - Red Azalea and Deep Magenta - not too loud, and the jackets fit perfectly. The two polartec vests I also ordered layer nicely over these jackets. Thanks as always L.L. Bean - very pleased with my purchases !!

Rated 2 out of 5 by momatl Not up to past standards
I have been a loyal customer of LL Bean since college. I have been ordering fleece jackets for almost as long from them. This jacket was such a disappointment. The zipper is flimsy and does not work well. I am afraid that it will not hold up for long. Not sure what is happening with the quality standards.

The perfect jacket. The fit is very nice , not boxy and not too tight. This is a repeat purchase. Good quality. Comfort, warmth and nice looking. This has it all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Adie Nice looking but disappointing
I bought one and was disappointed in how thin the material was. It wasn't like my older ones I had purchased a few years back from your company.

Rated 4 out of 5 by nanaof04 Comfortable light weight jacket, change color name
I like several things about this jacket. Mostly, it is comfortable and warm enough for my needs at this time of year and in the house this winter. The Antique Plum is a pretty color, kind of a raspberry (pinkish purple), just no where close to what is pictured on the monitor. I was hoping for a darker bluish purple which is shown under the same color named fleece only with buttons instead of a zipper. I will keep it, since the color and comfort is fine with me. This color will look best with black or navy but also good with white or ivory. Please, Fix the color name and the picture to reflect a more accurate discrimination.
