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.

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.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gjinny Very good buy
Well made and warm and a good deal.
The medium is a little bigger then they used to be so it's not as form fitting as I would prefer but stii ok

Rated 3 out of 5 by DWM3 Bad Fit
As others have said, the sleeves of this jacket are way too tight. The chest is also too narrow, and there is no elastic in the cuffs.
I was looking for a light fleece to wear around the house, and if it were not for the poor fit this would have done it. I just don't understand why Bean does not fix the fit, given all the negative reviews.

This fleece jacket is just what I'm looking for. It's warm, stuffs down small and can be used with a rain parka in very windy or rainy conditions. Not many manufacturers sell fleece jackets in Tall sizes, especially at this price point. Very versatile and well thought out design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AJSF Great jacket
I love the jacket -- so much so that I bought a second. It's comfortable and fits exceptionally well (which means it has a slight athletic cut). I was worried that the sleeves might become baggy because they lacked elastic, but that has not been the case (and actually the lack of elastic has been a benefit, since it makes it easier to allow the sleeves to be folded back slightly when needed). The blue is a great, fun color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Leopold72 Great Jacket But..........
I would have given this Jacket 5 STARS except that the sleeves
are 2" to long. This has never happened before and I have bought
more than a dozen jackets over the years from LL Bean. All the
rest were outstanding.
