Rated 4 out of 5 by busymomwith2kiddos Runs small but feels like it would be warm
Bought the girls 14-16 for my 14 year old daughter and it is way too small. The style is short and fitted and does not look like it would fit any 15 or 16 year old let alone my 14 year old. Otherwise, it appears like it would be warm and the color is beautiful. She was going to use it as a second layer skiing. I would recommend it, just go up a size.

Rated 5 out of 5 All-around great jacket
Bought this for my 7 year old daughter as her fall jacket. As usual, Beaners never disappoints! This is a great jacket with a nice fit and beautiful colors. My daughter and I both approve : )
I agree with the other reviews in that you must wash it before wearing because it does arrive with a terrible odor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CTvalet Very nice fleece top!
This was purchased for my granddaughter. It is very well made and feels very soft. The color is a very soft pink. I think it will be nice and warm to wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SomeWhereOverTheRainbow Sweater/Fleece Jacket
I saw many people wearing these last year and they looked really great on them! So when I saw these at LL Bean for kids, I bought one for my daughter. She is a slender 8 year old, and I bought a size 8 (the size I usually buy her in LL Bean coats/jackets) which fits her, but it is very fitted. I think that is the way that these are supposed to fit. She can wear a thin top underneath, but that is it. I bought the cool violet color for her, and online, it looks more like a pink, but when it arrived, it looks like the color says, "violet." One huge think I noticed about the sweater jacket, is that it smelled so bad like rotten fish!! My daughter put it on and didn't even want to zip it up because of the smell, and she took it off so fast. I kept if out of the bag that it came in overnight, and the smell was still there. So I washed it on delicate cold, and air dried it. The smell is totally gone.

I bought two of these, one in each color, for my 9 and 11-year-old girls. We took them on a seventeen-day trip to Ireland. I was looking for something slightly nicer-looking than a basic hooded fleece sweatshirt. These were perfect and beautiful! We have many gorgeous photos of the girls and the colors are vibrant and flattering. They wore them to dinner at night and scrambled over the cliffs and castles during the day. These jackets kept them warm and comfortable, and looked as good at the end of the trip as they did at the beginning. Now that we're home and they've been washed, they still look perfect and will be worn all fall! LL Bean, please continue to offer these...we'll buy them every year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LAL1 Fantastic Girls Jacket!
My daughter is 6-1/2 and I wanted to have something between the fitness fleece and a down jacket. This jacket is perfect! It definitely provides warmth and is even a bit of a wind buffer. We got the Little Girls L/6x-7 and I think the fit is just right. I would say my daughter is average size for her age and the jacket fits with some growing room.
