Rated 5 out of 5 by ring Covers back behind very well!
I bought this for my daughter because the weather in San Diego is chilly in the morning and evening. My daughter loves it and she says its fitting and very light and keeps her warm. She wants me to order more for her! I love the fact that it covers her behind very well especially when she wears leggings for her dance class!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ColoDaisie Happy with this purchase
I bought this a few weeks ago and wore it during a trip to Ireland. It is comfortable, fits well with a light layer underneath, and looks a little nicer than a plain fleece. It held its shape and appearance through the rigors of plane travel and under rain gear, where it was perfect. I did not encounter any construction or design flaws, although a two-way zipper would be nice.
Be aware, it does not compress like a regular fleece and so is a little bulky when rolled and placed in a daypack. For size reference, I am 5'2"", 115 lbs., and am satisfied with the Petite Medium, wearing it as a light jacket.

Saw one lone sweater fleece in my size at the Freeport outlet on the way to Acadia but resisted buying it. Then I thought about it the whole time on the camping trip and decided I had to have it, but it was gone by the time I went back - regret! Luckily I found it online and am loving it. 5'2", ~118 lbs - the XXS Regular fits perfectly.
The sleeves are just the right length and no issues with the shoulders as a previous reviewer mentioned. Would love an extra zipper to mitigate the inevitable zipper bulge, as well as a hood. Otherwise the outer sweater material is perfect, the marled lilac color is beautiful, and the inside of the pockets are super soft. I expect to wear it often this fall.
One small thing is that at first there was something scratchy on the inner left arm, which turned out to be the edge of the zipper tape. I just trimmed it and it's fine now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mker1 Really great jacket!
I bought 3 of these last year when they offered it in XXS regular and wore them all fall, winter, and spring. When I saw they had petite XXS this year I had to get one! Fits so well that I wish my 3 older ones could magically be transformed to petite. Don't hesitate to buy this, even at this price. They're worth the cost.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MTom Very disappointed
Poorly constructed. Back long and hem flips up - does not lie flat. Sleeves snug - just a bad fit overall.

Another lemon I have recently purchased from LLBean. The quality and price don't match, the lack of design is infuriating. The fit is not flattering. Do not buy if you are under 50.

by ArtySpice deal-breaking shoulder design
The shoulders seams are bizarre and pointy. See attached pic.
The zipper should really be two-way so it doesn't bump out when sitting.
The Blue-Green color is really gorgeous, for what it's worth. I would have bought it in Kelp Green too if the fit had been good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kbtluver Love this - bring back the hooded version
I purchased the hooded version of this jacket a couple of months ago and love it! Perfect for a Spring or Fall New England day. The hooded version is great to corral your hair on a windy day, or to offer a little more warmth on a blustery Spring day. Perfect length (midi-thigh), deep zippered pockets to keep valuables from falling out, and attractive styling.
Please think about bringing back the hooded version!

Rated 1 out of 5 by indigoselena Arms too short
I wanted this fleece to work out, as I liked the style, however, I am 5'10" tall and most everything Bean makes in shirts are too short for me in the arms. I also noticed the zipper in the front wouldn't lie flat, which would annoy me.
Please make a tall version for women in your shirts. Thanks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by acarriagedriver love it
I love this jacket, I own two of them, but the elastic on the cuff of the left sleeve is loose. I'm going to return it for this reason, alone, and hope that they have another still in stock.
