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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by filumena2 Ulrtasoft Sweats for the 21st Century.
At last a trim sweatshirt!...Not bulky, like the old sweatshirts of the past. These ultrasoft sweatshirts do the trick. A sweatshirt that you can wear under a jacket, try that with the old bulky ones....The solid colors are bright. Island Coral is more of a light orange, like a creamsicle. The gray is quite light in color. The fabric is light, comfortable, and very stretchy. True to size. Well made...Make more colors next year.....And I find them as.....Another winner from llbean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by debita SO Soft and comfortable sweatshirt
I love this shirt. It is very soft, stretchy and comfortable. It is NOT a thick sweatshirt......but that's not what I wanted. I bought a second one I liked it so much. Wish there were more colors....light blue, maybe navy and medium green, too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by sfchick Disappointed
For $40, I thought I was going to get a much thicker, warmer sweatshirt than the one I received. This was so flimsy, it felt like a long-sleeve T-shirt. I expected more from LLBean, especially for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MtnLvr2 Great for everyday
Overall I like this shirt, I am 5'6" 123 pounds and the XS fits perfectly, although I am tossing it in the dryer for a couple of minutes and then lying flat so it won't shrink at all. It is very soft on the outside, terry loops on the inside and I love the stretchy-ness that the spandex adds. My only complaint is that the shoulder seams are a bit too close to the collar in relation to the bottom hem; if you know what I mean, it creates sort of a line that makes your shoulders look small and you look a bit bigger than you really are in the tummy. I got the violet chalk and I really like the color, it brightens up my face. All in all this will be comfortable for casual days.
