Rated 5 out of 5 by sweethearttx Comfortable and not bulky
This is an excellent buy. It's is super comfortable, soft and warm without being bulky. Perfect for the winters we have here, which mostly are not super cold although occasionally we have colder weeks. I am 5'3" and usually wear a size 8 in clothing, 36B. The petite small was great and still roomy. I loved that I could cinch in the waist to make it fit perfectly. Recommended! The purple is such a beautiful color too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by reader256 Perfect fall jacket
I own 2 of these fleece jackets, in purple and red, and they are terrific for late fall and early winter. They are warm but not bulky, and they are a perfect length, just below the hip. A lot of llbean's fleeces are waist length, so it was nice to find a longer jacket.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Walktheseasons Waist Band
While the purple color is very pretty and the fleece is comfy and warm, the elastic waist band with adjustable drawstring is placed well above the typical waistline. Even for the high waisted figure, which I am not, this seems too high. I was constantly tugging it down in an attempt to feel comfortable. I don't wear it. I'm giving this a poor rating based on fit and comfort.

Rated 3 out of 5 by placer too much jacket
I ordered the version without a hood and wanted the same version with a hood but this was the only option.
Too long for my 5'2"
nice colour though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by zafrique almost perfect!
I love the deep, eggplant color! It fits well, the material is comfortable. It does actually have 2 interior pockets, but they are down low, opposite the exterior pockets, maybe good for gloves? The hood is basic- not adjustable
Please, LL Bean, make ALL coats and jackets with interior chest pockets. I have long since adjusted to having them on the left when I am a leftie, but we need a place for a cell phone, a bus card, or whatever, secured with Velcro probably.
It's good for those in between days when it's too cold for just a sweater but too warm for the down parka.

I bought the Barberry color in this jacket. I love the color (and the jacket) but it sheds all over the place! I have washed it numerous times and it still pills and sheds everywhere! I then returned it and got another one (hoping it was from a different ream) and it still sheds! I'm returning it! I'm not sure if I will try a different color or not. I have an older one of this style and I love it. I'm not sure why this happened! One jacket was washed in my machine at home and the other one was washed in a brand new machine and it still did the same thing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by carolannie soft and not too heavy, good length
I wear this a lot, It is lightweight, soft and warm. The body length is longer than some which covers your back over the hips. The soft fabric moves easily, and the adjustable drawcord is good & is warmer that is fits up closer. Washes well. I wish they made a style without the hood or a removable hood as it is bulky and bunches up behind your neck when driving and I would prefer buttons rather than the zipper. If you are going to wear a sweater or heavy layer under it you will need to get one size bigger than normal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NashMom My new Favorite!
I cannot say enough good things about this jacket! I love everything about it. I wear it all the time! I love the length of the jacket, that it covers my bottom. I love the weight, yet it is still warm, even on windy days. I love that I can put my phone in the pocket inside of the jacket, and put my hands in the outside pocket. I ordered the light blue color and it is bright and very flattering. I have worn this in the snow (when it was in the 40's) and been plenty warm and worn it on windy days in the 60's. Great for travel because not heavy. It is probably the best jacket I have ever owned. Buy it!

I just received this jacket last night. Fits perfectly. Very comfortable and warm. At first I thought it was too thin but Tulsa winters can be milder so it is perfect. Today it is in the 40's and sunny with a light wind and I wore it over two thin long sleeve t-shirts and it was perfect.
I am 5'8" and weigh 160. It has room to layer but not too bulky. I don't like anything to fit snug or tight and it is perfect, a little extra room to move. The length is great, about to hips. Zip up collar doesn't scratch or stick in my chin.
It also has adjustable waist draw-cord.
I haven't washed it yet so cannot comment on how it washes. I imagine I will wash in cold, knit delicate, and hang dry.
