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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LongtimeLLBeanpersonfan Runs larger than expected
I was really hoping this sweater would be more fitted as some have said. But it was actually quite large and sloppy on me. Ordered a medium and I'm about 5'6", 125lbs. It was also longer than I thought it would be in the body, but that could just be how I am built (I have a shorter torso), so the bottom hem hit at crotch level/upper thigh. The material seems nice and heavy and warm. Although not for me, it will work out well for someone else.

I will have to return it because the shoulder is too narrow on me & the collar is too stiff. Maybe if I had longer neck the collar wouldn't bother me so much. I bought XS & it fits everywhere else. The length of the torso is fine in XS, I am only 5'2". I think the small could be too long & the plum color that I want is no longer available so I am returning it instead of exchanging. Otherwise, it is a jacket worthy of owning as it is good looking, if it fits perfectly, & on trend.

Rated 5 out of 5 My favorite jacket!
Living in South Carolina, I haven't had the opportunity to see how warm this is, seeing as our cold days are a normal day for most others. But I am finding every excuse to wear this when it is even the least bit chilly out. It's sturdy but lightweight, and SUPER soft inside. I love slipping it on, it's so soft on my arms when I'm wearing a short sleeve shirt underneath.
I have gotten multiple compliments on it! And I love all the pockets it has. It fits slim, and is a tiny bit short on my torso, but I love it so much that I don't mind. This is my go to jacket for fall and winter this year!

Rated 4 out of 5 by flybynight love the jacket: need a petite
I purchased this jacket in the pewter color. I loved the jacket. But i need a petite. I do not need a petite in all of LLBean items but this i did. I am 5'3 1/2" , 124# . I might have done better with a small ( I ordered a medium but even so i needed a petite. My mom is the same size as me and wanted one but also needed a petite. Maybe next year?????

Rated 2 out of 5 by movado23 Bad fit
This is a top quality jacket but the sleeves are entirely too narrow to even wear a long sleeve t-shirt underneath. I don't have large arms. The shoulders were good but the narrow fit was very uncomfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Smidget Finally an XXS
I have bought clothing for years from LL Bean and have been very pleased with the quality, but not the sizing. It is not LL Bean's fault but mine. I have been forced to wear clothing that is a bit too large for my frame. I am 5'3" tall and weigh 90lbs. My bust is 33, waist 26, hips 33. This is the first XXS I have purchased from LLBEAN and I am shocked that it actually fits and it fits well. It has been too hot to wear it yet but I am looking forward to it. I bought the kelp green and love it. I may customize the sweater and add elbow patches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by taygete05 Sturdy and fitted
I like that this jacket has sturdy construction, with solid seaming and materials, but isn't too bulky. I've found it very comfortable and works in a range of temperatures.

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!
