Rated 5 out of 5 by JPinCT Can't be beat
Well, unless you lean over the exhaust manifold on a leaf blower. Then it melts into a semi-rigid sleeve. Other than that this is my go to jacket from early fall to right up to when I need the snowblower, and after that's done until the leaves come out and summer nights to boot. Just the right weight and sizing to layer with a sweater if need be. 5 pockets, and the outer ones zip open from the top (not the bottom like another vendor who shall remain nameless - stuff falls out more with theirs).

Rated 3 out of 5 by SeattleBob Not what I expected
Too thin, and too fitted...not relaxed enough for laying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bicycleMike ideal for spring
I have other fleeces, but this is my new favorite. It is ideal for the spring temps here in Michigan. It provides warmth while being comfy like a favorite sweater. At night when the temp cools off I put this on to walk my dog. The quality of construction and materials is up to the Bean high standard. I highly recommend this jacket.

My husband has a group of similar fleeces in his closet. We may as well donate the others since this style is the only one he wants to wear! He has at least four of these now. He really likes the general qualty, fit and convenient chest zip pocket. Here in Montana, it's a nice weight for year around use. Thank you LL Bean for a great product!

My teenage son requested this jacket. We were pleased with the quality, workmanship and fit. It is lightweight so he doesn't mind wearing it to school. It will be a great jacket for all of his camping weekends.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PLarsen Comfortable, but sheds
I bought this coat to wear at work, I am a currier and do a lot of walking outdoors. While this coat fits well and is comfortable, every time I wear, it sheds. I bought a navy blue and it constantly leaves fuzz balls on my clothes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by pickerdude51 sleeve opening sizing is a shot in the dark
It is SO EXASPERATING trying to buy equally sized garments from LLB ... I had to up size to an XL in the Trail Model Fleece because the Large shrunk 4" in the chest when washed ... and my 43" chest was skin tight to the fleece afterwards .. so I just got the XL in the mail and I plan to wash and shrink it down to make sure it fits ... and it should, as its chest is 3" larger than the L before washing and after shrinking 3" to 4", it should be purrrfect ... the only problem is that the sleeve trim that is supposed to mildy elasticize the wrist opening is huge ... I measured my Wind Challenger fleece and the Large Trail Model fleece and both have a 4" opening measured across the wrist opening laying flat, so that translates to roughly an 8" circumference around the wrist ... the XL I just got has a 5" wrist measured flat, or a 10" circumference ... of course, 10" is soooo big is slides down over the wrist onto the hand and the elasticized opening at the wrist does nothing .. so I just ordered 3 more XL's in the hope that 1 of them will pass muster and I can then wash it and wear it forever more .. and then return the 2 extra XL's and the shrunken Large to LLB ... I hate to do this to them, but their sizing is so whacko in some regards that a customer really has no options ... sigh.
