Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Never Disappoints!
Bought this fleece in 2 colors for my very particular teenange son. They are a very nice weight for a fleece layer - not too think and not bulky like a fleece jacket. Perfect really for what we were looking for, and I love the quality. He gave them a thumbs up which means A LOT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by HollywoodRick Very nice
I took the advice of a previous reviewer and bought a size up from what I normally order from LLBEAN and it worked out. Their sizing must have changed because my weight hasn't. Normally an xlg , bought the xxl and it fit perfectly. Just right for my many trips to SoCal and their "cool" nights, not too heavy. Buying another soon. Highly recommend this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 37fen triple AAA fleece
These tops rock!!! I've been purchasing the 1/4 zip fitness fleece ever since they came out. Tried a few alternatives & nothing compares. Not even close. Had to replace my prized old grey one - I feel one of the children made off with it. I love, love, love the color, fit , texture of the charcoal heather. I only wish LLBean would offer some more zippy color alternatives such as orange & Kelley green, my two fave colors. Anyhow, get yourself one, you will not be sorry!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by review98654 Not fleece on the inside
There's a lot I liked about this item. Quality construction, and the cut and fit for the large-tall is great. But it has one major flaw - the inside is not the same soft fleecy texture as the outside. Instead the inside is hard, scratchy polyester. It fails at being a fleece but it isn't bad as a shirt for wearing over long sleeves where the inner texture doesn't need to be comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hikeknitmommy Comfortable and warm
I just bought a second of these sweatshirts for my husband. He likes the first one I got him 2 years ago so much that he requested a second one. He wears them a lot and they don't show much signs of wear. He layers them with a shirt or two underneath and wears them all winter around the house and on weekends.

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.
