Rated 5 out of 5 by msmoffatt Flattering
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dixie95 Wonderful sweater
Love this sweater. Soft, lightweight and warm. Fits true to size. I bought the small and fits comfortably with a lightweight shirt. Go up a size if you want to wear a heavier layer. Good purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheExpeditor Warm and beautiful
I purchased this item in an LL Bean store because the teal color caught my eye. I matched it with an LL Bean teal and black striped turtleneck - a nice ensemble. I am happy to report after 3 months of wearing this jacket almost every day that it shows no wear, is warmer than other (non LL Bean) fleeces that I own, is well made (zipper is great- matches in color), and looks great. It washes well- no problem there. I purchased an XL because I like to wear layers - this jacket manages to still look slimming and not bulky. Has lots of give in all the right places.
I am 100% satisfied and would recommend this jacket to anyone.

I got this sweater as a Christmas present and absolutely LOVE It. It's warm and snuggly like a fleece, but looks a little nicer with the sweater part on the outside. It's fitted enough that I can wear it under a coat, but I can still fit a long sleeve shirt underneath it. A win all around, LL Bean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Redwig Nice quality, just doesn't fit
This is a great jacket, IF you are pear shaped. Because some reviewers said it ran large, I ordered an Extra Small, but had to exchange it for a Small (my normal size), because it was tight in the bust area. But when I got the Small, it was too big in the hips and still pulling under the arms a bit, so had to send it back also. I am 5'5", 105 lbs., with 35/27/35 measurements. Too bad, I really like the jacket. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frommers Warm, stylish, recommended
This is one of the better items I've ever gotten from LL Bean. Most/many items are boxy and unflattering (at least one me). Here is an example of a warm, practical - and flattering - item. It is not the traditional dowdy cut that has me returning many items I buy from LLB. Not clear on why the company doesn't offer more clothing with a feminine cut. I would certainly keep more items, and return less. I'm 5'7-ish and slim, and am happy with the Medium. It shrunk a tiny bit, which was a good thing for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Redwig Durable and Warm
Absolutely love it! I needed something more durable than a sweater, but not quite a coat, and this fits the bill. It's sturdy and has a very soft, warm lining. I do like the zippered pockets just in case I need to put something in them I don't want to fall out. Can always leave them unzipped if I'm putting my hands in them often. Unfortunately, since some reviewers said it ran a bit large, I ordered an Extra Small. Well, it's a little too tight in the bust, so I'm exchanging it for a Small. In my opinion, this jacket runs true to size. It will no doubt be one of my "go to" jackets!

Rated 5 out of 5 by thatwombat Well-made and comfortable
Well-engineered, warm and comfortable. Wish there were more colors- maybe next year. Already can tell it will be a favorite go-to jacket for everyday use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AugustPeridot Purchased 6 weeks ago, zipper broke today
I love this sweater. From the color to the fit but this morning the zipper broke on one of the pockets and it's no longer in stock. The next shipment is not until June 2014 so I'm out of luck. LLB offered the return of course but I'm going to take it to a tailor to see if they can replace it. I gave it a fair rating due to the broken zipper and pilling (that I could live with). LLB also offered another color but I have it already. For the price, the zipper should have lasted longer.
