Rated 5 out of 5 by Hannahh Fits perfectly
I have the same fleece from another site and decided to try this one. It fits perfectly and is much softer. I got the grey color but once they're on sale I might get the black.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Reviewer693 Sleeves Too Long
I ordered the jacket in an XS, and unfortunately the sleeves were about 2 inches too long. Although I loved everything else about the jacket, I returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shewearspurple Very comfortable warm fleece jacket, a bit big
I'm 5' 5", around 120, very short arms. I ordered my usual P XS, and this runs a bit big. It was large through the chest, and the sleeves were long.However, I really like it. It's very warm, soft, and cozy. I am grateful not to have the cords to pull the hood tighter, as they make for a look that is sportier than I like. The cords for adjusting the waist are at least on the inside, where they don't show. I wear my fleece jackets indoors, not outdoors, so I like the slightly dressier look. One of my favorite things about this jacket is the beautiful green color. It's lively and cheerful without being fluorescent. Living in Seattle where winter can be long and gloomy, it's nice to have such a cheerful color!

Rated 1 out of 5 by cjc31867 Runs small
I was excited to get this jacket until I tried it on. I am a plus size woman. I usually wear an 18-20. I ordered the 3x (24-26). Because I like my jackets big, I like to be able to wear a sweater under them. Maybe there's a defect, but this jacket was the size of a 1x. Sadly it will be going back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AuntieClaws Comfy, great color
Just received the drawcord jacket in light lilac. The color is yummy! It's the perfect weight for layering, and is well made. But then there is the matter of fit. I ordered a petite medium because I have short arms, but a generous bust. The sleeves are two inches too long, which is very strange. The seams that are for shaping fall well below my bustline and the jacket is baggy enough for me to wear a hefty sweater underneath. So basically, this medium fits me like a misses. I haven't decided whether or not to send it back. The color is just what I wanted, but it looks like I haven't grown into it yet. The jury is out, but I'm going on record as saying it runs big.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tiga Awesome jacket for around 15 C in damp weather too
I bought this jacket last year and didn't find any temperatures I could use it in, but this year there seem to be more fall-like days, and I almost feel like buying the topaz one as well. It resists light drizzle as well as keeping me warm with only a long sleeved T-Shirt underneath. I appreciate the long sleeves as I am tall with longer arms. Do wish LLBean offered tall sizes for women, as they do for men! The jacket has one downside:.It is not comfortable at the neckline when fully zipped. The coarse metal parts of the zipper touch my skin, and I am not cold enough to need a scarf..

Rated 3 out of 5 by beetlefan Not a favorite
I ordered this fleece coat with draw cord for chilly, upcoming fall, early winter days. The coat color was nice but it felt too thin to be of much good for colder temperatures. And there was too much material in the bust (which is a lot because I'm a busty 38DD!) which stuck out when zipped. The waist was nipped in too much for the apple shape I have. Just not a flattering fit or warm enough coat, so it went back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by qualityqualityqualit disapointing
I was so disappointed. Item too long in sleeves and too tight across chest and hips. Not the usual quality from LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bastian Warm and stylish
The jacket runs true to size. I am 5'5" and a true size 14. I ordered the jacket in both large and extra large, and the large fits the best. The XL seems to have a lot of extra fabric and the sleeves are too long. This coat in large hits just below my hips. The sleeves are the right length. Although I haven't tried it in cold weather yet, it seems quite warm and cozy, and I like the zippered front pockets and inside drawstring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by luv2shop64 great jacket
I always read ppl's reviews on items and on this item some said it ran big, some it was just right and some said it ran small. So I debated on ordering the 1x in Gray but decided against it and went with my usual size XL and am so glad I did, because it fits great. If anything it is a little roomy in the arms in case I want to wear a heavier top. I guess it all depends on the individual. Its a chance we all take when ordering online. Anyways this is a great weight also, may think about getting another color.
