Rated 5 out of 5 by valueshoppermom warm for layering
I purchased one for my son and he loved it so much he wore it over his t-shirts everyday to school. I immediately bought another one. I hoped it would go on sale but they sell out fast. You are lucky if you can get this 8 on sale, my son is too big for it. I am hoping to find more for this season. I might try the fleece lined hoodie. I did like this because even though it's casual, it has a collar and makes him a little dressier for school!! High quality and holds up well. He outgrew another one before it was worn out. It washes very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vermonter4Life My son love it!
Thank you LLBean for making a great insulated shirt for kids! Bought one for each of my children for Christmas and it's been one of their favorite gifts. My son loves the feel of the fleece that he won't even wear a t-shirt underneath it. My son is in a 10 and the fit is a little large for him but it is a 10-12. He is fine with it. He'll be able to get two years out of it!
I'd love to see more color options for the boys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kubie Great comfortable shirt-Never wants to take off!
My son loves this fleece-lined flannel. He wears it outside to shovel snow, at the computer and to school. I just wish LL Bean had more than 2 color choices I would buy more for him.

Having selected this from a catalog, the young man got exactly what he wanted for Christmas, and wore it all day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lumberjohn Fantastic shirt
These are fantastic shirts. The quality is superb and they are very durable. They fit true to size. Very warm and the boys love them. 2 years ago I got the S/4 for my near 4 year old and a L6/7 for the 6 year old. They still fit but just barely. Just got the now 8 year old the S/8 and it fits well with enough growing room to spare he should get two winters out of it. These shirts will be handed down and I expect they'll last given the durability to pass on to my third youngest son.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MassMom22 Nice but mismatched fabric
This shirt material was great - very soft and warm, not heavy, BUT I couldn't believe how mis-matched the side seams are! Not something you expect to see on a high quality item. The plaid is way off on the side seams and is very obvious. Very disappointing. Might try and exchange it - wonder if they are all like this - but too busy right now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FrugalCountryMom Durable for Boys
My son loves to be outside all year long. Weather has never been an issue for him, but it has for me. This shirt is great for those not to cool, but needs something to cut the chill. The durability is outstanding. Will be buying others as my son grows. This is one of his favorite shirts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by busymomtoalex Comfortable and warm
This is a good quality, comfortable, warm shirt that looks great with a pair of jeans. My son wears a size 10 and we purchased the 10/12. Even though the sleeves are longer than he needs, the second button keeps it tight enough that they don't drop below his wrist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by biscuit165 Perfect for PNW
We live in the misty Northwest, and this is perfect for my teenage son. The lining fleece is thin, soft and warm and the look is manly but not bulky. Perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MomOfJandJ Uses this shirt as a light jacket
My 12 year old son loves this shirt so much that we ordered a second one in another color. He now wears one in place of his previously ever-present zip sweatshirt. He is never without one of his fleeced lined flannel shirts, which he refers to as his jacket. Note that we live in the relatively mild climate of the Pacific Northwest.
