Rated 4 out of 5áby YoungRetiree2 Cozy
Nice thick fleece fabric that is very soft inside and out. Comfortable for early spring in Maine when it's still quite chilly. Fitted but not skimpy. Drawstring waist was unnecessary in my mind but was easily removed.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MOinKS I'm wearing my fleece as I type this!
I have to say, I love my new fleece. I bought the purple, and it is a little more vibrant in person, but still a nice color. I really want a gray one, but cannot commit just yet. After reading the reviews I felt a little confused regarding sizing. In most jackets/outerwear, I am a large, and that was true with this fleece as well. (For reference I am 5'5" and 165 pounds, and definitely an "apple".) It is so warm and cozy. I have washed it once (on cold with no fabric softener) and it came out just as soft and nice as when I put it in the washer. Really great fleece.

Rated 2 out of 5áby blueflower very large
This is a nicely constructed top, but it is very oversized. I ordered a small and it just hangs on me. I will keep it for much colder weather when I have other layers on and this will be the final layer.

Rated 2 out of 5áby PEMajor Sizing challenged
Rich color and as always, excellent quality. I ordered the petite medium which I have done for years and this garment was too long in the body and the sleeves. Disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5áby preznovak warm and fuzzy but the size runs smaller
The fleece jacket is a warm and fuzzy addition to my inside wardrobe. It is perfect for those days when you rather be a couch potato. The only reason I rated it 3 stars as opposed to 5, is because the jacket was too small. All of the LLbean products I have ordered over the last few months have run large, so I assumed the jacket would be nice and roomy. However, the jacket was actually really small, and I found I could not wear more than a t-shirt under it, so I exchanged it for the next size up.

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.
