Rated 5 out of 5 by BeanDevotee2010 Disappointed
This is a gorgeous sweater fleece jacket. SO warm and comfy. Unfortunately, it doesn't come in a petite, and it is way too long for me, in the length and the sleeves. (I am 5' 1"). It comes down to my thighs. I can wear the regular size medium in some things (for example the pima tops), but this really requires a petite. SO disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CookieGood Very Appealing Jacket
Very nice fabric which feels like quality from the moment you put it on. For me, the Kelp Green was a good color choice. I'm someone who avoids wearing coats; if at all possible. So, I think it will be just the ticket for me. Comfortable, cozy and warm, yet lightweight. Perfect fit for me in a medium; as always with LLBEAN apparel. I don't believe it can be worn with anything heavier than a long sleeve tee though as the arms and body are pretty much fitted but not so much that it is too tight. Pockets are a good usable size with good placement. The bit of stretch in this fabric allows the jacket to move with you. The zipper pulls are rubber coated which is a nice touch.
All in all...5 stars doesn't seem enough!

Rated 2 out of 5 by CityWalkerInDC Beautiful, But...
...sleeves and torso are cut much more narrowly cut than the description seemed to indicate. It's too tight!
Beautiful color (purple sunset), nice features, fabric feels soft and comfy. I so wanted to keep this jacket, but back it goes, I'm afraid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TallTreesPNW Very nice
I bought a Medium size in a Pewter color. The jacket looks and feels amazing. I am 5'6" and 126 pounds with long arms and the Medium fit me perfectly.
I even wore an LLBean sweater underneath to see if the fit would be too tight. It still fit very well and not too snug. I know that some reviewers complained of tight arms, but unless you are Popeye, you shouldn't have any issues.
The color selection is gorgeous. I will be ordering more of these for sure.

Just fell in love as soon as I opened the package....... it is beyond words wonderful. I know I will take it with me on all my travels. Construction is beautiful, fabric is beautiful, fit is beautiful. Thank you LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarmenSandiego a serious upgrade on fleece!
I'm 5'1", 112 lbs, narrow shoulders and hips and a 32DD chest. I range from XXS to Small in Bean sizing?a Small if I need room in the chest.
I purchased this sweater fleece jacket in XXS, color True Teal for the sale price of $40.
It's made in Jordan (not China!!) and has a high quality, sturdy finish. The hip pockets are deep and zippered and the shoulder pocket is useful for a key or other small item. Overall this is a well designed garment.
The fit is snug, especially in the arms. The back has a bit of extra coverage. I like this fit for those cold, windy days when you just want to be a mummy :)
Generally I hate polyester, so since fleece IS polyester I've stayed away. After this past winter I went on a hunt for a nicer looking, sleeker fleece jacket so I could "excuse" it's polyester-ness. This is it: looks like a sweater, but wears like fleece.
The teal is a deep, rich jewel-tone color. I'm sick of the endless pinks and baby blues sold at Bean in women's clothes. I prefer black, white, navy and jewel-tone colors. More of those please!!
Overall, I highly recommend this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by charmette Tight Sleeves
really wanted this last year but was sold out in the grey. didnt exactly want it for the summer but when i saw it i ordered it. looks great IRL - color, shape, length, quality... the only issues was the sleeves were tight with a sleeveless tank top underneath. i was surprised because LLB merchandise usually has a pretty consistent fit. Ordered Med and i workout but certainly not with big muscles. would be impossible to bend arms with a LS shirt under it in the winter. sadly going back :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by galin Warmer than Fitness Fleece
I had desperately wanted the Sweater Fleece Coat (longer than the jacket) this past winter, but it was sold out. I bought the jacket in the store at the start of summer, so it was super on sale and an excellent bargain. This fleece is way warmer than the Fitness Fleece, more on par with the Comfort Fleece, but it fits more snugly (I find the Comfort Fleece to be rather boxy.) I bought an xs and I am 5'3" / 115 lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by peekapoo Nice fit
Not bulky and gives shape without being tight. Light grey color is nice. Very comfortable. Also like the length.

Rated 5 out of 5 by globalMarsha outstanding quality
I purchased this jacket in kelp green for a upcoming trip to Ireland. I wanted something warm but not bulky. This fits the bill perfectly. Hard to believe its made from polyester; it has a sleek, finished, expensive look to it. I had been looking at this jacket online for months, waiting for it to go on sale. Finally ordered it a full price because I am leaving on my trip soon. I am not sorry because the quality is outstanding. Please note the jacket sizing is fitted so if you are looking for something looser, order a size up.
