Rated 5 out of 5 by jb51 Great winter alternative to a blazer!
I am a big fan of comfort fleece jackets and have purchased them in their various incarnations over the past 6 years. I began wearing this latest style last winter and like it the best...it has classic, flattering lines and is made of quality fleece that looks good after many launderings. I am a teacher, and wear this to school on cold winter days instead of a blazer, it fits true to size and is SO comfortable. It can be dressed up with nice slacks and a scarf or dressed down with jeans and a t shirt. Bravo, Bean! Keep making this, please.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ishop4value Great Jacket!!
I am delighted with the jacket -- the fleece is very soft, the zipper works smoothly, and the cream color is perfect! It fits well through the body (size small). Sleeves are a bit long (I am 5' with short arms), but the cuff turns back beautifully to just the right length. Length is fine -- I would prefer a petite, but this will work well. I expect to wear the jacket outside in fall and spring and indoors in the winter. I am almost always very pleased with LL Bean products -- this is another winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by onlineshopper15039 Favorite jacket
This is my favorite as I can use as a light jacket in spring and fall and then wear indoors in winter. Like it better than sweaters or sweats due to the ease of washing and drying and no pilling. Own 15 as I order new colors every year and never had one shed nor wear out. Love the new dark claret color for this year. It is a beautiful deep burgundy darker in color than my monitor indicated. Just wish a matching long sleeve tee was available to make a set.

I bought this fleece to replace the same item I purchased two years ago. Quality control where are you?? This item has half the weight of the previous one, and most important is the zipper!! It is a ladies dress zippper, not a fleece zipper. I live in Vermont and have many fleeces and this is the cheapest, poorest construction that I have ever purchased on line. if you want quality and function, do not purchase.

Just received this jacket, bought it to wear at work. It is truly freezing in my office. It is a beautifully made jacket. Very warm, very soft and comfy, and actually very flattering on. I love the length and the side shaping. I ordered a large, which is my normal size, and it fits well. Got the rose mist, and it is a very pretty color.The zipper so far is smooth and easy to zip. Hopefully will stay that way. Definitely buying at least one more for the fall and winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeachLove Perfect weight, fit
5'7", 140#. I live south of San Francisco, just a few hundred feet from the beach, so our weather is generally cool [50s-60s] and everyone layers. Add to that, we'll be traveling to Ireland this summer and I needed a lightweight warm layer for that trip. This jacket is perfect for those needs: it's a lightweight fleece, but very warm, arms are long enough, isn't too snug but isn't baggy, either. I like the two inner pockets.

I purchased two of these last fall. Love the colors. Very warm. Comfortable. The problem is that they shed and I find loose fuzz everywhere they touch other fabric surfaces like the seatbelts in my car, the couch, my office chair, my slacks and jeans. This is annoying. I have washed them several times and they still shed fuzz. I haven't had this problem with the other fleece garments I have purchased from LLBean. Disappointing considering the price of these jackets.

I ordered this jacket about 3 weeks ago and haven't taken it off since. Some may call this disgusting - I call it a good purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OnlineTchr Soft, cozy, and warm.
I love this comfort fleece jacket. It is so soft and comfortable and really warm. I wear it around my apartment, which is drafty and cool, and as a layer under a jacket when I go out it adds the right amount of warmth. I am 5'8" and 160" and the large is plenty roomy, might have been fine with a medium. The black is a nice color; I have washed it several times and the color has not faded. I bought this as Christmas gifts for some of my friends. I wish there were more colors, I would buy more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Likestobike2 Love Jacket but Problem Zipper
I bought this jacket for my college age daughter a couple years ago. She absolutely loved the jacket and wore it constantly all day...indoors and out. Then the zipper broke. I figured it was because she wore it so much and we ordered another. She just got the new one last week and we were at a function together when the new zipper got stuck on one side (which happens) and wouldn't come down.
I was wearing a light LL Bean outdoor jacket and compared zippers. The Comfort Fleece zipper was tiny and difficult to grasp. Without the other side attached it's alignment was crooked which prevented it from smoothly sliding back down because it was hanging on the zipper teeth.
Eventually she got it back down. As long as it's fully connected to the other side it moves freely. She will need to take great care to be sure it doesn't migrate up one side alone. It should remain at the bottom unless its connected to the other side. That's a little tedious for any zipper to be.
I feel the life expectancy on this jack will be relatively short and have change plans to order my other adult daughters the same jacket.
