Rated 5 out of 5 by SavvyConsumer7800 Searching for soft warmth?
I'm always cold. Winter, summer with the air conditioning on, I stay cold. So I need an extra layer of warmth over my tops, and this fleece lined hoodie perfectly fits the bill. It is soft, roomy without being sloppy big, and it has pockets! Good pockets!
When I bought the first one, they only had it in charcoal gray, it being late in the season, but it was okay and then it arrived. After washing/drying, I slipped it on one morning when I was again, really cold in the house, and heavenly warmth!
So I went online and they only had one other fleece lined hoodie like this, "limited quantities" and only in the same charcoal gray (darn, because I would've loved it in a pale blue), but I ordered a second charcoal gray fleece lined hoodie because it's so darn comfortable and warm.
I have always had good luck with purchases from L.L. Bean, and they've exceeded them selves in this hoodie. I love it. So now I have one to wear and one in the laundry, and I'm pretty happy. You will be too, I just know it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by hiker67 zippered pockets great, weight is heavy
I bought this hoodie because it was about the only hoodie anyplace with zippered pockets to secure a couple of small items I need to keep with me at all times.
I like this sweatshirt, although would have cut it wider for myself. It washes well, but I'm not sure how well it will hold up. Could always before count on LLBean seams and hems staying together and buttons staying on garments. Not so much any longer.
I agree with the lady who found the weight of the garment a lot to carry around all day, and have removed it mid-day just to get rid of the weight. The zipper is hard to get started with the fabric covering it at the bottom. I also find I'm using it more as an indoor sweater than something to pull on when going outdoors -- it just isn't warm and suitable for my outdoor chores.
Keeping it -- love those zippered pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chickory25 So great!
I love this hoodie and I have a few of them in almost every color. It is warm, comfortable, and comes in lovely colors. It is great to wear as a jacket by itself or under my winter coat when it is super cold. All I could ask is that LL Bean offer it in more jewel tones (yellow, citron, sky or ocean blues) and black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Seaattleme PLEASE BRING THIS BACK, KEEP IT!
This "original" LLBean lined Hoodie is a yearly staple for us. There is no other lined coat in this price that has zipper pockets (massively important) and this quality. My coats last 6 years+ each and are lovingly handed down. I've looked at the "new" one and it's crud compared to this. No zippered pockets, plastic tacky zipper pulls instead of this nice feminine touch here of the velvet pulls. Come on guys you sell out of this one every single year in my size, doesn't that tell you something!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Agolf Fit not real for normal people
Quality of hoodie is all I would expect from LLBean but I wonder who in the fashion business has determined that all women are stick people with long skinny arms and no bust line. I have been a Med (10-12) for 50 years and my weight has gone up by 5 lbs and there was no way I could even zip this hoodie. And the arms were so narrow and long that putting it over a turtle neck would have been a challenge.

Rated 2 out of 5 by tobieh For a bigger version of me
I read the mixed reviews for the sizing on this sweatshirt and opted to size up. I'm 5'7" 145-150, 36C. I ordered Large (normally a Medium) hoping for a little extra room.
The sleeves fit perfectly. The body was another story. HUGE, and I mean extra wide with a floppy band. The seams on the front did not give a feminine shape because they left the panels boxy. The length came down to the tops of my legs. It would fit me well if I had about 30-40 extra pounds on my bod and wanted to hide it. I won't be ordering a size down. The sleeves wouldn't fit and I'm sure the shape would still be as shapeless. My 12 yo has the little girls version in L(14-16), with feminine shaping, which almost fits me. I'm going to try the girls XL (18).

Rated 1 out of 5 by CountrySenior Poor Quality
The quality was not what I expected for the price.The sleeve cuffs were stretched out and material was not very thick. Have seen better quality at a resale shop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Disenchanted1 I own four,would buy another color
I already have four, purchased over three years, and would buy another. It's looking like this item might be phased out. I hope not!
This hoodie is so warm and comfy. I only hang to dry, and the fit stays the same. The finish is still smart even after several washes. I love this hoodie!
