Rated 5 out of 5 by razzmom men's fleece pullover
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Zablonski Great product, great price, one very small problem
I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality, fit, and comfort of this item. The only problem I have is that the cuffs are a little loose. I find that with my arms lowered (hanging at my sides while standing or walking) the ends of the sleeves hang around my knuckles (I'm 5'11 and I ordered the traditional fit). It would be much better with elastic in the cuffs, or with just slightly narrower cuffs.
But again, other than that, this is a great product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by TMedina Functional, but not great
The fit is comfortable - I ordered a 2X and it fits just a little loose; perfect for layering.
The material itself is feels like a thinner fleece; the soft material is on the outside, the inner material is a smooth synthetic - about what you'd expect to find on "base layers", but not quite as soft. Does not feel comfortable against my skin.
It does add warmth, so it will work for layering, or an outer layer pull-over. But don't expect it to be the same fleecy comfort against your skin that you find in other fleece pullovers.
Conclusion: it gets the job done and I'll wear it, but I would not order it again, nor would I recommend it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lilywillow Old Qtr zip fleece outstanding
I was about to order another fleece for my husband but was disappointed to see reviews revealing that the quality of the fleece used in this year's offering is different. I think my husband has had his old qtr zip for 10 years and it has been like a second skin for him. He loves it as it is lightweight, the fabric held its shape and the cut was very good--not too loose and just long enough to keep the cold winds from going up his back. I hope LLBean seriously looks at these reviews and recalculates the supplier of the fabric. LLBean loyalty is not to be messed with.

Rated 2 out of 5 by llbeanshopperrr uneven fit
bought one and i was very happy... but the second one, even though it was the same size (small, regular) it was much more baggy and I ended up not using it at all
