Rated 1 out of 5 by SushiQueen Poor quality
I was very disappointed in this sweatshirt. It's made of extremely thin and skimpy material, with way more stretch than I expected. There is no hefty cotton feeling to it. Even though they claim it's only 5% spandex it has a cheap synthetic feel . Definitely overpriced for such a shoddy garment. I am returning it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by OnlineBeanShopper another return
Ordered 2: mallard green and sunlit coral. Colors are beautiful.
BUT, as others have commented, these are way to thin and stretchy. Sizing is consistent with a medium that I normally wear but "on me" it is way too long. Where are the regular "sweatshirts"?
I used to find so many items in LLBeans catalog for my wish list. Sadly, not any more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by merrymaker Soft but thin
Bought this in emerald green and love the color. It is soft and comfortable. But the shirt just doesn't do anything for me. It doesn't have any "body" to it... a limp, thin, clingy fit.. and its a little on the short side. (I am 5'6") However, it could fit another figure fine. I do like the zip-up version of these sweats, though. Good to find a zip sweatshirt that is a little more dressy and not too heavy.

Even though I'm loosing weight I miss the 1X shirts. They are great for layering and are not to hot as some sweatshirts can be. They are oh so soft. I love them. Bring back the 1x for the crew shirts. :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by ethelouise Not what I was expecting
I really loved the larkspur heather (blue) color pictured on-line and in the catalog. It was described as ultra-soft and I was expecting a traditional sweatshirt that started out soft and comfortable. Well, the color is a nice blue, but the "heather" is actually streaks of darker color globbed together which makes the sweatshirt look stained. Worse, the fabric is very stretchy, so it seems more like a thick t-shirt, rather than a sweatshirt. Certainly, not a product worth $40.

Rated 1 out of 5 by rockyroad53 Larkspur Heather crewneck sweatshirt
Bought the Larkspur and the Gray. The gray heather is exactly what you'd expect. The larkspur heather would have been a pretty color but the heathering is totally weird and very unappealing. I really don't know how to describe it but suffice it to say I felt compelled to warn potential buyers. This is the first review I have written. I've appreciated others reviews so will consider doing more of these in the future but most times I am satisfied with LL Bean products and rarely is the color my reason for return. I am keeping the gray - love it, lightweight and soft. Larkspur going back. So my rating is specific to this color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ceeaire Great summer sweatshirt
I love these sweatshirts. They are soft and look great. I like the lighter fabric for summer nights, and expect they will be great as three season basics. More colors please. :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by judyac bring back sunwashed sweats!!!
I am very disappointed with the Ultrasoft Sweats Crewneck that I bought. While it is styled as a sweatshirt I don't consider it to be a sweatshirt at all. The fabric is very thin and it isn't very warm. For many years I happily bought and wore LL Bean's sunwashed sweats. I don't understand how LL Bean could discontinue such a high quality product and replace it with this inferior one. I will never buy another one of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ssb99 SO-O-O comfy!
I love this sweatshirt! It's so soft & comfortable, feels great against your skin. I took it out of the package and put on immediately, and it felt as good as if it had been washed many times. As noted in other reviews, it's not heavy and bulky at all, and that's what I like about it. I wish I could afford one in every color but it's a little pricey (for my budget) just for lounging, I wear on weekends when not working. I wear a Petite size and the fit is just what I like, loose enough to be comfy but not sloppy. My husband loves the feel, wishes he had one in a men's size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Drbt These are wonderful!
My take on both the crewneck and the matching pants is that I would love a set in almost every color. I ordered the grey heather, and love it. I went back in to order another set in tan heather, and it is no longer available. With the help of those wonderful Chat people, we searched for my size in a matching set of any color, but unfortunately, they were all sold out, so I just have to wait until fall until I can purchase one or two more sets. I live in these; they are so very comfortable, yet I can wear them in the yard, in the house, in the car, in the grocery store - just about anywhere.
