Rated 5 out of 5 by drumbuzzer Super comfort!
Received this as a gift in the gold color. I loved the color but went online anyway to see it in green. Wrapped it up in the bag, sent it to LLBean and had the green one in less than 2 weeks. You cannot beat Bean's return policy. The jacket is very comfortable, weight is perfect, it fits well and it will work for California winters and cold, foggy San Francisco summer nights. What amazes me about it is how well its whisks moisture and perspiration. Best jacket I've had in a long time. Now I want another one - perhaps in gold, once again. Maybe Christmas....

Rated 4 out of 5 by DWGtraildog Sleeves too long for a Large /Reg.
Jacket fit and functions great, except that the sleeves are 1.5 inches too long for me. I am 5'9" HT. I have a 34 " sleeve. My jacket is a size Large/w a regular cut. The sleeve must be close to a 36" sleeve. Its annoying. Otherwise pocket and material are excellent for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 great fleece
I have two of these, black and gray, the gray one the sleeves stretched out, sent it back, they sent me a new one. I'm over 6 ft so the tall size is what keeps me coming back to LL Bean. The upper breast pocket is essential for the phone. They have made a few changes with the wrist on the new ones, it's more of a collar than the old elastic. It's an excellent fleece.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gypsophila color not as shown
My monitor shows a blue that I took as more royal blue than the "navy" it calls itself. It is certainly a bright blue but with enough green in its makeup that it comes across as a very dark and intense swimming pool blue. I don't much like it but it is OK by my husband so we are keeping it. Also, what is it about Bean's sleeves? I have shortish arms so all Bean's sleeves hang to my knuckles, but my husband has broad shoulders and normal arms but he needs to roll the sleeves of this jacket back an inch or an inch or so to get the sleeve off the backs of his hands. Other than that?. It is medium weight, not as thick as his Columbia fleece. It is a straight cut, fits more closely to the body than his Columbia. Both of these factors make it seem like a cheaper jacket than its price would suggest. As if economy over quality was Bean's goal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by frankthetank Great basic fleece
This is a great barebones staple fleece that everyone should own. Warm enough for a fall/spring jacket but better as a winter layer under a shell. Fleece is super-soft, do not put in dryer!! A little bit fitted but flattering.

Rated 1 out of 5 by riverslakesoceans Quality control issue??
I ordered this jacket for my husband, who is not at all fussy about his clothes, in the size he usually wears (medium). The body of the jacket was too short and the sleeves were WAY too long. How can LL Bean mess up a standard item like a fleece jacket? We returned it, and as always the return process was very easy. This wouldn't have been a deal breaker (as I said my husband isn't fussy), but the "bright navy" color was not what I expected -- bright, yes, but there was nothing navy-like about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vasichek Great quality at a reasonable price
The fit is perfect and the quality is impeccable in my experience. It is pretty warm and very light. Last but not least, price is very reasonable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sstr Fleece Jacket
The color, "vibrant red" of this jacket was gorgeous, and the workmanship looked perfect, but the material -- Polartec -- which I have worn, enjoyed, and praised for many, many years -- was flimsy for the first time since I've known it. I would have returned the jacket, but it had been promised as a present because of the color. I was embarrassed by the quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HikerScott Trail Model Polartec Jacket
I have had a 200 polartec pullover for 8 years ... no signs of wear. Great for stand alone or laying. At times, I want the convenience of a zipper (instead of the pullover) so I purchased the jacket. GREAT product and good price ... highly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ShopperBob Should have listened to the Reviews
Really nice quality jacket but the fit is small. Narrow arms, narrow chest. Feels short on length at the waist. Buy one size larger. Which I did but it still feels small. They say its traditional fit. Its more like an athletic fit. All I can wear under it is a T Shirt.
