Rated 4 out of 5 by MadCityBeanFan Fun Color That Fits Well But...
I bought this to replace another fleece that has been commandeered by my spouse. I wanted something that was rain and windproof that didn't necessarily look like it came out of the Men's Department. The color is a greenish yellow which made me smile the minute I opened the package.
Other reviews complained about the snug upper arms- the sleeves are by no means full and anyone with larger biceps might have a bit of a problem. Living in WI, our spring is just starting to spring, so I've been wearing a light fleece underneath- you have to fight to pull the jacket on. Once on, it's a great fit. I love the thumb loops to help keep my hands warm. The pockets are perfect and I'm looking forward to seeing how waterproof it is!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CaliSports Nice jacket, interesting fit
Quality and feel of materials is top-notch, nice features like the eyeglass/MP3 outside breast pocket and fold over at top of zipper for keeping wind out. As mentioned in other reviews, 1) not a fleece, but rather a plush tricot/track suit type of material. Great feel and just warm enough, and 2) the fit is odd - long in the torso, fitted across the shoulders, longish sleeves, just right around the waist/hip. I'm 5.10 180, lean, 40" chest, 35" sleeves and it is perfect - not sure about this one if you have a bigger build with shorter arms.

My son loves this jacket. Perfect fit. He loves the color. He is growing so fast we are looking to use this jacket this spring and next fall. That is, he will wear his new jacket if this winter ever ends! Thanks Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by slowrider awesome light jacket
Nice tight exterior on this fleece, light jacket. Snug fitting.
This ain't your daddy's LLBean fleece.
Better suited to casual ski or snow shoe, little warm for vigorous XC ski. Does block wind fairly well. I wore in 5F - 10F XC skiing and was comfy but sweated up the inside pretty good.
Love this as a sweater or extra layer, fits under my snug winter jacket, and would expect it to be perfect for light jacket duty.
Comfortable enough to wear around the house all winter.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JToma a swing and a miss
The overall cut of this jacket is disappointing. The real sticking point is the sleeves, they are so tight that you can't get a long sleeve shirt into them. Within minutes, the sleeves cut off the circulation to my wrists. Very irritating. I would not recommend this jacket to anyone.
I'm a life-long LL Bean buyer, but the styles and finish of recent products is leaving me cold.

Rated 4 out of 5 Well made, looks nice.
I liked everything about the jacket except the fit of the sleeves.
One needs skinny arms to wear this one. Impossible to wear a heavy shirt or sweater under it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by toyguy A Great Jacket
I love this Jacket. It is definitely a snug fit, especially in the arms, but that is what I was looking for.
This jacket is very comfortable. Temperature-wise, wearing this with a long-sleeve T-shirt, I was comfortable being outside in near freezing temps. It does a really good job of shedding rain too.
I really like the "snug" fit of this jacket; there are too many times when I don't like wearing a big bulky jacket to keep me warm.

Rated 3 out of 5 by bearras Conjoined jacket?
The fit is very odd. I wear tall and usually have no problem, but in this garment the sleeves are fine but the body is waaaaay too long. It's almost as if two garments of different sizes have been patch together.
