by HarpLadyDiane Too big in the chest
I wear a Medium in all LLBean tops. I ordered this jacket in both teal and grey. Both jackets are plenty long in the arms and fit nicely everywhere except the chest. The chest is way out of proportion to the rest of the jacket. Every part of the jacket is a medium, but the chest has so much extra material that it might fit a DD bra size woman. I like both jackets so much that I am going to see if I can take in the chest so it will be in proportion to the rest of the jacket which fits great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by curlyturtle Nice lightweight jacket
The fleece is lighter in weight and thickness than I expected for a "warm" jacket, however I have not worn it outdoors in cooler weather yet to test that out. I am 5'3", 120# and size M Regular fits perfectly. It is just a little baggy in the front but with the zipper open, it looks very cute and stylish. It is not cut boxy like a man's jacket. I wanted this jacket because it is water repellent and it rains a lot where I live. Overall I am pleased with this jacket and will probably order another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trentaluski Comfortable, warm and well made
I bought the teal green and love the color. The material is soft, warm and cozy. There are pockets on the inside and outside which are very helpful. I would definitely recommend this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by whiteking Perfect "go to" jacket
This was an accidental find. No matter what the season, I tend to be cold here in CT. But who wants to wear a winter coat in June!?
When I spotted this jacket, I knew it would work all year round. It also is lovely grey-- perfect for those of us who have kitties! I am slim and tall (5'11"); the large fits perfectly and is cozy soft!! Thank you Mr. Bean!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by NWestGal Bit too snug with sagging bust
I recently ordered this jacket in 2X, instead of the Comfort Fleece I usually buy, because I wanted a warmer color choice. I knew it would be heavier fabric, which is more suitable for outdoors. But the arms and body are noticeably tighter than the other model. I worry about getting it over my autumn turtlenecks. And I agree, the fitted bust is 1-2 inches lower than it should be. Otherwise, it is nicely made and I love the burnt orange color, which will be useful for fall travel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beansandrice Fantastic fleece!
I saw this on one of my friends; went right to llbean online and got myself one in purple. Now my friend wants one like mine! Need I say more. I wear this around the house on chilly mornings. Great buy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by tauntonshopper Nice & warm!
Love the fleece jacket overall, esp like the zippered pockets. Sleeves are a bit long, rolling them up doesn't look bad. The size I ordered is slightly larger that what I wear so I am a little disappointed that the fleece isn't any roomier than it is. The width in the sleeves is a "just fit", so won't be able to "layer" under it at all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by girlengineer Bust seams disproportionly low
I ordered this jacket in the lovely hard to find forest fern color and really looked forward to its arrival. I ordered it specifically because it appeared semi-fitted (princess seams), making it warmer and better for layering than a loose fitting jacket.
I ordered a small. The fit was much larger in the bust and midsection than I'd expect from a small (4-5", I'm usually between a small and medium), and weirdly, the princess bust-seams are about 2-3" too low and look obviously out of place, yet the overall length is as expected. I'm 5'6, 130 lbs, 51 years old and a 34 C. I'm not petite, short or "perky". This is just an odd cut jacket for anyone other than a barrel torso-ed woman who doesn't mind mis-located princess seams competing for attention with her actual bust line.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ChicagoFitMom Top notch quality, fit a tad less than perfect
I think most of the reviewers here have synthesized the scoop on this item pretty well. I am 5'3"", pear shaped and weigh 132 lbs, size 38d. Usually wear small with LL Bean an ordered the same size in the heather gray and cayenne. First, the heather gray appears to be thicker and warmer than the cayenne, but the cayenne color is absolutely stunning. The reveiewers are right, the sleeves a about 1/2 inch too long and there is an odd sag between the waist and the shoulders. This is is much less pronouced in the cayenne. They are both incredibly warm, actually much warmer than a comparable product by the leading outdoor catalog seller in the same category. You can wear a thin chemise under a fairly warm turtleneck or maybe even a sweater and still have your regular size of this jacket fit comfortably. But I found myself very very toasty in 35 degree weather in Chicago with just a short tee underneath, and I am normally very sensitive to cold. The reason i decided to keep both pieces and also give a four start review was that 1) they feel fnatastically comfortable to wear and can be used in countless combinations of layering for the temperamental Chicago weather and 2) my husband who is very very picky about my wearing clothes that fit very well and also look stylish was insistent that both jackets made me look both young and stylish. He was very complimentary. since he is not easy to please and has an excellent eye for style, i am going to keep and enjoy these toasty fleece pieces. Hope this helps

Love this jacket. Excellent fit. Roomy enough to layer underneath.
