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!

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by manc52 zipper doesn't lie flat
Washed this jacket in cold water and it shrunk quite a bit. The biggest problem, however, is that after washing, the zipper does not lie flat at all. I've tried to iron it flat and had a little success but it will never look as good as the day I bought this. Cannot recommend this at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AthleticNana Dressier than most Fleece Jackets
I bought this Sweater Fleece Jacket over a year ago and love it! It has held up well, and I haven't had a pilling problem that some reviewers have mentioned. "Sweater Fleece" describes it well as it's a cross between a sweater and a fleece. It's fitted but not too tight, especially since I never wear more than a short-sleeve tee underneath or I'd be too warm, and I live in Wisconsin where it gets cold! The jacket has a marled look with lighter and darker threads, and the piping picks up one of the two colors. I bought a teal color which is no longer available. I came online to buy another color, but unfortunately, most of my size (a small) is sold out. I'll be on the lookout for other colors and hope LLBean does not discontinue this style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanShopperDeluxe Love It
Love the warmth and softness of this jacket. I bought it in my normal size, and there is room enough for sweater underneath. Style is slightly fitted but not constricting, very comfortable. Also like that sleeves are long enough ( I find certain LLB items are too short in sleeves) and they narrow at the wrist to keep out cold air.
Only caveat is that I have not had it long enough to encounter the pilling that some other posters have noted. Hoping that material may have been changed to avoid this.

I have had this jacket for 2 years. Is pilling on sleeves and bottom torso. Not the quality I expected. I do like the jacket and get a lot of compliments. For the price would have liked to wear better

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanFanforquality Warm and light
Recently bought one for travel to Europe and all I have to say is that it was the best money I've spent in awhile. The jacket is light and extremely warm for moderate climates. It was my go-to jacket, as it has a lot of great pockets and they ensure security for travel. However, my only tiff would be the price could be adjusted to be a little more accessible, as it's pricey. But, I guess its definitely quality material. I was extremely satisfied with my purchase! If they have a sale, I'm pretty sure I'll be the first one to buy a second one!

Rated 3 out of 5 by FaithfulLLBcust Not crazy about the color
The sweater fleece jacket is warm and comfy. Just don't care for the color blue-green. I thought it was the same as True Teal sw. fl. jacket I bought in 9/2014 and didn't pay attention to the name of the color. Blue-green is more muted, maybe like a fir tree green. I was hoping it would be more of a brilliant, jewel tone teal color. It wasn't so I returned it. I'd like to see LL Bean carry more jewel tone purples, teal, and turquoise color jackets and coats. I love those colors all year round in any type of clothing. Also wish the jacket was less fitted and more roomy for those of us who are more curvy and want to wear a sweater underneath. LL Bean makes good quality clothing, just thought I throw my 2 cents in about more color options.
