Rated 5 out of 5 by WisconsinBadgerGirl Love this jacket! Teal color is beautiful.
I wrote a review on this item last year, but wanted to write again regarding the "true teal" color jacket. The color is beautiful and is NOT as bright and electric-looking as shown online. When I received it I was surprised how much of a darker teal it is -- very pretty. Again I ordered an XL because I know it runs slightly small and I want to layer fleece/heavy shirts underneath. Perfect!

Rated 4 out of 5 by cd55 Ran small
I liked the jacket. Great quality and good color. Unfortunately, it ran small. I would have had to wear a thin tee under it, which wouldn't be good for winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 5terriermom Very pleased with this jacket.
Just got my sweater fleece today( ordered the fushcia) and I just LOVE it!! Comfy like fleece but looks so much nicer. Fit is feminine and very flattering. If you want a tight fit I'd suggest ordering one size down. I ordered a Med, which is my usual size in tops and it's a bit roomy, but I like that since I can layer whatever I want underneath. I know I'm going to get a lot of wear out of this jacket. My only regret is that I hadn't discovered LL Beans Sweater Fleece sooner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Surfwatcher Love this sweater!
Online this sweater looks plain and blah. In reality it is sharp and stylish. I am really picky about the way tops fit and this sweater is cut perfectly. It was bought to go with the Perfect Fit slacks and together they make a great outfit. I am 60 years old and recently lost 20 pounds. I like the fitted look which is slimming. Even though I am 5'2'' it is not too long. The fleece fabric is warm but not bulky. Overall, the sweater is a nice compromise between a knitted sweater and a fleece top. Just perfect!

I purchased the coral and the blue sweaters and love the feel and fit. However, after two months they have started to pill badly. In washing them, I have always turned them inside out, zipped them and never used the dryer. This is such a disappointment because they are perfect otherwise. Am I the only one who has this problem? If so, tell me what I have done wrong as I feel bad returning them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PugetShopper Not for broad shoulders
I really wanted to like this sweater - in fact I ordered it in medium and large to be sure I got the right one. But neither worked for me. I am 5'7" and 120 # but I have broad shoulders. The large fit my shoulders but was huge in the body. Sometimes I can tuck in the sides but the material is very heavy so that wouldn't work. The shoulders were much too tight in the medium and just stuck up in points. That said, the colors were gorgeous - teal and coral. The material was nice but heavier than the two other sweater fleeces I have. More of a jacket than an inside sweater.

I purchased this item in grey and I have gotten so many compliments on it, not to mention how versatile and comfortable it is to wear. I hope you'll be getting more sizes in stock in the other colors available.

This is a great version of a sweater fleece, and I now have 4 colors-gulf teal, turquoise, coral dust, and grey heather. They have a beautiful knit look outside and a thick fleecy inside. The fabric is very soft and decently stretchy. The length is to the lower hip on my 5'7" frame, running slightly longer in the back. The 2 zip hand pockets and the one on the left arm are very functional and very roomy and secure. The look is slim, stylish, and sporty.
While I love all 4 sweater fleece and am keeping them all, there are a few minor issues that caused me to hold off on the last star. Usually, I wear an XS. I bought that size and was happy to find that they fit well in the shoulders and bust and allowed full range of motion of my arms, even with a long sleeve layer underneath. As mentioned by another reviewer, for the size of the body, the sleeves are a little tight on me. I have thin but muscular arms, so that may be a factor, but I really need to yank to get my hands through the end of the sleeves. The bottom of the jacket also flares out a bit--quite a bit more than I do--and I would prefer a straighter cut--but the stretchiness of the jacket allows it to be pulled down which reduces the wide bottom hem. There is no cord or other way to tighten the hem. Because of the extra room at the hem I could not order up to get the extra sleeve room. That is just a factor of my build, but if you have muscular or larger arms, you may wish to size up one size.
Once the fleece is on, these factors do not bother me. They are so comfortable and quite warm and snuggly--just perfect for the super cold winter that we are having this year. Once you try one, you will want to get more. More colors, both bright and subdued, would be great.

Adore this sweater fleece! It's flattering and neat looking. Love it so much I bought a gray then an aqua one.
I wear large but bought extra large for my broader hips as this falls lower on the hips.
If they were a little cheaper I would have another but $70 is not what I usually spend on a sweater. I got them with my LLBean credit card points.
