by Anza Sheds like no other fleece I've ever owned
I love fleece and have been wearing it for about 30 years. I currently own an LL Bean fleece bathrobe and I was recently looking to replace my LL Bean fleece jacket before it completely wore out. I was delighted to find a red PolarTec fleece jacket online just before a trip to Ireland. I loved the color, the style and the fit. But does it shed! I washed it prior to my trip. But soon after my arrival in Ireland, I started finding red lint all over my host's car. Then it was my rental car (see armrest and seat back in photo). And on and on. I might have left "a piece a me heart in Ireland", but I left a whole lot more fleece! I will be returning the jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsSaab Violet fleece
I bought a Trail Model Fleece in violet after reading many negative reviews. I bought it to replace a fleece jacket that I have worn for 15 year. The jacket is a beautiful violet color and fits well. I like my jackets loose so I bought a large. The arms are a tad longer than I need, but otherwise, I am happy with my purchase.

Got this fleece for my daughter and myself for a spring camp out, it's perfect. Great quality, warm, really great cut, not bulky, flattering. LOVE the teal color....perfect. Daughter loves the red color in 14-16, really great pre-teen color. Great for camping and for everyday use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sledmotor bring back yellow
I have a LLBean yellow trail fleece pullover that is 14+ years old. I have worn it a lot and it has held up very well. The stitching is good, but the fleece has changed in texture so the jacket is definitely for back yard wear or walks in the woods. I keep waiting for the yellow color to be offered again in women's sizes. There is a gold color in men's, but this was a bright yellow. Bring it back soon!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kirchi Fleece Jacket
Bought the Island Green Heather jacket on sale. The color is not as shown. It is ridiculously dark bright green. Didn't even take it out of the bag. The texture was also somewhat thicker and not as nice as the older style. LLBean is getting more disappointing with there styling and color choices along with changing the original products. I'm shopping for fewer items these days.

by lucyimhome green not true to color pictured in online catalog
I ordered this in the green color on sale. Online it appears to be a relatively light green, and sort of a mint. and the color is "heather- kind of subtle sounding. However, when it arrived, it was much darker and a color somewhere between green pea and lime. I still like the jacket, but had I known it was so bright, I might not have chosen it.

Did I say that I LOVE this jacket?! So cozy and warm, I have several colors. I never leave home without it. There are zipper pockets on the side and two interior pockets.

Rated 1 out of 5 by holmes1720 Fleece Jacket not to size
I just received a package from LL Bean. In it I found the fleece jacket I ordered, but it is of inferior quality to the one I bought over a year ago. The jacket has the same Item # of 284620 as the one I already own. However, this jacket is not the same fit. It is much tighter and has no give as I move around in it. The worst part for me is that the sleeves are 3 inches longer than the other jacket which fits me just fine. I ordered a petite because the sleeves are supposed to be at least 2 inches shorter than an average size jacket sleeve. I wish I had paid attention to the comments on the web page made about this product. I have to return this jacket as I will not be able to wear it. I cannot believe you would still charge me a return fee based on the reason that this is an inferior product and not in keeping with your good name. I just ordered a rain jacket and hope I do not have to return it, too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NHNANA1 Sheds even after washing. Poor quality.
I have been a LL Bean shopper for years and love their overall selection but I am quite disappointed with my Barberry fleece jacket purchase. It sheds all over my clothing even after I've washed the jacket a couple of times. I will be returning it. I will continue as an avid LL Bean shopper but not for their fleece jackets.

Rated 2 out of 5 by frieswiththat annoying compared to men's model
Pretty much I like everything about this jacket EXCEPT, it turns out the men's model has a handy zip pocket up near the left top of the chest. (I got husband same model.) It is the PERFECT place to stash my cell phone. So annoying that women's model doesn't have it. 9 times out of 10 I find I take his jacket due to just that pocket, unless we're going out together and he wants to wear his too. Wake up, LL! We need pockets too! I would have bought myself the men's model if I had known. (Mine is in un-girly grey, so no big deal there.)
