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.

I had been looking for a nice hooded sweatshirt but couldn't find one I liked. I bought this fleece hoodie because I couldn't find anything I thought I'd like. It is awesome. I love the styling. I would love it if LLBean made a sweatshirt in this same style.

I loved the longer style of this jacket. It was purchased in the red and it was vibrant and rich. However, I found the Medium to be exceptionally large on me...5'7" and 125 lbs. I reordered the Small size and it also was too large. I've never worn an XS so I just purchased another jacket.
Too bad...I really loved the look of this jacket with the drawcord and the hood, and the heavier fleece fabric made it a nice, warm jacket.

Nice fleece. Soft and true to size. The zipper at the top is very uncomfortable. It is constantly scratching me. The reason I ordered this was that the zipper did cover the neck but I do not use it because it is so rough. Needs a different design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JJNH Excellent jacket
I am 5'2", 150lb, bought Large, Petite, in black color. Fits perfectly. Light, soft, warm, comfy and very cute. Long sleeves are nice to hide your hands to keep them warm. Perfect for Seattle winter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by doitrightMae old version better - drawcord at ribcage
Too bad; ill-conceived design has the drawcord cinching the ribcage rather than the waist. Drawcord seam is placed much too high. Sizing is also off and garment runs quite small. Fabric sheds onto clothes. For those looking online at the Barberry color, be advised it is a deep. hot pink, not a true red. Not one of LL Bean's best redesigns as the older version did not have these problems.

Rated 2 out of 5 by GambaGirl Bring back the old version
I had a version of this jacket from pre-2011 that was much more comfortable. The sleeves were cut fuller, as was the jacket. In this new version, I can't get the jacket on over a sweater without a lot of acrobatics. And once I get it on, the sleeves feel stiff and tight.
Also, this jacket was much better with the collar and no hood.
In Wichita, it just doesn't get that cold in the winter, and I can throw on a jacket over my indoor sweater to go outside. This doesn't fit the bill and so I returned it.
