Rated 2 out of 5 by CaptSteve Bought two, returning one
I've got many old fitness fleece tops that I love. I've been waiting for the grey top to return for several years and this color finally was offered again so I bought one. BAD CHOICE! The grey one now looks just like a cheap grey sweatshirt - but not as comfortable. The new fleece looks and feels cheaper than my old fleece. I'll keep the new black one but the grey one will be returned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WisSnowOwl Good Product
I've owned these in different colors over a six year period. I like having this as an alternative to a long sleeve shirt by wearing it over a t-shirt and just rolling up the sleeves when warm. It's a good product that keeps easy and will probably order more in future years as the pile packs and loses its loft. Hope they do a bigger variety of colors as they did in the past, the current 4-5 choices aren't desirable for me.

Great alternative to a sweatshirt for cool weather hikes, outdoor work and travel. Mine is the quarter zip, and my iPhone fits in the chest pocket perfectly. The cut is tailored. I almost always can buy an LLB shirt in medium without bothering to try it on. But in this the medium was very snug, and the large was just right. Heckuva value! Comfy, too!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Stonetrade Be careful of the colors
The "Black Forest Green" looks like a dark forest green
on the website, but in reality it is a bright green, more like a "camp green" - think of the green of the Philadelphia Eagles. Going back in the package to LLBean. Bummer because the fleece itself is nice and fits well, although I do recommend the tall sizes if you want it to reach below your belt.

Hands down, this is the greatest piece of clothing I have ever purchased. I bought every color, and would buy more if other colors become available. I have never had a piece of clothing fit more perfectly. They are beyond comfortable, and have a nice look to them. I would highly recommend this fleece to anyone. The sizing is spot on, too.

I never had a fleece jacket that felt so scratchy next to my skin. I wish the inside was as soft as the outside. This is very thin material. It was fairly priced for what it is I guess including the $10 off coupon that I used. The color is nice. I can use it as a substitute for a flannel overshirt and possibly as an extra layer under a heavy winter coat that I own.

Both my husband and son love this. The chest zipper pocket is a nice feature. I ordered up a size for both of them and they fit well. My son wears a men small in LL Bean polo shirts but needed a mens medium tall in this. My husband wears a mens large tall normally but the tall XL fit him great for this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bill140 Very Nice!
I went skiing yesterday and used this as part of my layering system. This fleece replaced my heaver (old school) fleece. It was more comfortable under my mid layer coat and shell, because the lining allowed for more movement. The front chest pocket held my iPhone 5 inside a life proof case (attached photo). If you're using an iPhone 6 size phone in a case this pocket might be a little small. Sorry I did not have one to try.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sct654 Good value and comfortable
Bought 2 of these fleeces a year or so ago. Very comfortable. Fit great. They seem to have become a bit matted/pilled over time, but for the money I probably got good usage from them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by timmyg New Fitness Fleece not the same as the older model
If you have purchased the fitness fleece from a year or so ago, the sizing and fit has changed dramatically. This newer version has a hang loop by the tags and is of a thicker fleece material. The sizing went from a loose traditional fit to a slim fit. I've purchased the 1/4 zips in xl for over 4 years off the rack and never had a problem. The new sizing is so snug I had to order a size up to xxl.
