Rated 5 out of 5áby Oregonteacher Cozy and Cute
This is a thick, and appears to be high-quality fleece. I purchased the purple and it is a rich shade. I am 5'3", 140#. I purchased the petite med. and it is a perfect fit. I ordered this hoping it would be a good layer for a trip to Scandinavia and The Netherlands in June. Pretty sure it fits the bill. It has already been hiking on a couple of mild winter days in Oregon, with a rain jacket over the top, of course!

Rated 5 out of 5áby KrisFleece Always satisfied!
I adore LL Bean fleeces! They are so comfy and warm. There's a nice, soft finish that holds up over time. (I actually only bought a new one to replace my old LL Bean fleece.) The new colors are fashionable and the fit is great. I'm always a little worried because I have a curvy figure, but LL Bean always fits. It doesn't hug my curves or look bulky either. I've been wearing it for about 2 weeks now and decided to order my sister one as well. Great product and worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5áby GreenbackGirl Hard to find quarter zip fleece w/pockets
Maybe I'm out of step, but I love quarter zip fleece tops with pockets. I bought one while at the Freeport store 5 or 6 years ago, and still wear it all the time. I was not able to find any with pockets shopping locally so ordered another from LL Bean.
This one is similar and I originally ordered the same size, but because the fleece is thicker, which is nice, it was a bit snug and I could not wear it with a blouse or t-shirt under it comfortably so returned it for the next larger size.
I have recently moved from upstate NY to Tennessee, and will be able to wear it most of the winter down here in lieu of a jacket. We need an LL Bean store in Knoxville as I will no longer be able to continue my Veteran Day weekend tradition in Freeport ME shopping at LL Bean. Thanks!

Rated 3 out of 5áby 2twotravel Still Not Quite Right
This model is supposed to be a new version of a older version that customers really liked. The fit is still not quite right. I have an older version which I love dearly which is styled with a rounded bottom which was more flattering across the hips. The weight of the fleece feels nice, at least before washing.

Rated 3 out of 5áby buddyrescue good, but defintely different...
I have 4 other trail fleece pullovers from ll bean, the oldest being probably 4 years old. this new one fits and feels different. I usually order the xl regular, but it was waaaay to big and too long. the sleeves were three inches past my hands! so i returned it and ordered the xl petite. it is still a little long, but it fits a little better overall.
however, the quality isn't the same. the new ones feel a lot thinner and more like velour. for example, i reached into my armoire for one of my other ones to wear walking. my bedroom was dark, but i knew when i had my hand on the new one because if felt so much less substantial. i felt all the other 4 and they are all have the same feel and thickness. so, i'm not sure why this fleece pullover has changed so much in fit (plus it has a drawstring at the bottom for some reason), but i will not be ordering anymore in the future if this is how they fit. However, if someone hadn't had the 'old' version, they would probably be happy with this 'new' one. they should be warned that they run large.
so, i'm not sure what your advertising means when you advertise that you have gone back to the older version of the pullover, because, as i said, i have one that is either 4 or 5 years old and it doesn't fit or look like this one!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Mountaintrailbiker One of the best fleeces
I am excited to discover the Trail Model Fleece. I own many fleeces from different companies. However, the Trail Model Fleece Pullover is one of the best I have ever worn. Not only is it well constructed of some of the best fleece material (Polartec) on the market, it is well designed to enhance anyone's figure. The only drawback I found was in determining my size. L.L. Beans (along with one other well known outdoor clothing company), sizes their clothing a little larger than most. Actually, Bean is probably closer to your true size than most. But, once I figured out my size, I ordered more than I NEED!! Haven't tried the Trail Model Jacket yet....so we will see. It is very warm and has many nice features, such as the zip pockets, pull cord at bottom and nice snap collar. I love it!! Will be checkin' out new colors in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Condita We Both Love It!
I bought one for my husband in loden green one for me in black. They are so perfect we can hardly take them off to launder them. The fleece is cuddly, keeps us warm, and works well for layering too.
This is just one of those items in our wardrobe that worked out perfectly for us: the fit, the feel, the warmth, the versatility, and easy care.
I ordered another one for myself and next winter I will get my husband another one too!

Rated 5 out of 5áby JamieD Great purchase
I have gotten so much use out of this already. It's snuggly, fits well, and is very versatile. If you're between sizes, I suggest sizing up. I was a little surprised how snug the medium was.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Goodhue Loves It!
Gave a Trail Model Fleece Pullover to my wife for Christmas and she loves it! When I asked her why she liked it so much,she said that,"It's very warm and cozy!" She's been wearing it frequently on the weekends,and even in the house a few times.When we had temps down around zero,she wore it under her heavy parka.Said that she felt "toasty".

Rated 5 out of 5áby MegAnne GREAT PULLOVER
Comfortable, relaxed with a fitted curve to it which adds a feminine touch.
Will definitely buy another.
The fit is great too. I wear extra small, and this works great with this pullover. One can layer shirts underneath.
