Rated 4 out of 5 by warrenisaac Runs Large!!
I am a medium in everything, and LLBean sweatshirts usually run a little looser on me, but this was huge! The sleeves were a good 8 inches too long (granted, I am fairly short, but these were way longer than usual). The body of it was so large it was comical. I had to return it.
Otherwise, it seemed like a great jacket. Warm and comfortable, but not quite as soft as I hoped. It does have the scratchy feel that usually comes with wool.
Just be sure to think carefully about your measurements. If LLbean sizes run slightly larger on you, I would definitely go down a size.

Great fit and provides warmth without the bulk. Very happy with the fit. Bought the grey in tall slim medium and this jacket fits exactly as described.

Rated 5 out of 5 by supermom12 attractive, hooded and cuts wind
I bought this beautiful jacket for my son, who loves a midweight jacket for in-between Michigan weather. It fits him great, arm length being critical. He is 6'2, 220 lbs. and large is perfect. It will be super for college , as it cuts the wind and he loves a hood for rain. It also looks really nice for social outings. The wool will add warmth. He is sure this will be a favorite!

I have really enjoyed this hoodie. It's warm, comfortable and versatile. It does run a little big. I wear a medium in most jackets and found the small fit me far better.

This jacket a great value, very warm for normal temps here, and even worked great with a heavy sweat shirt underneath in -5 wind chill. The hood really keeps the wind off too. The large pockets are very useful. Love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by MikeBoston The jacket fits and feels great! - True to size
I bought one for my son who is in college in the southeast and ended up getting one for myself too. Nice soft feel to the coat with wind protection. Able to zip up for neck warmth and use the fleece lined hood as needed. Also great for under a vest for colder days!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mebs Better than anticipated.
The jacket has a wonderful dense feel and texture. It is heavier and thicker than I anticipated. I bought as a gift and am happy to sign my name to the card! Hope the water resistance is good. I'll let you know when I get feedback from the gift recipient.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LinebackerU Not sure what everyone likes so much
The other reviews indicate that this is a great product, but I'm just not seeing it. To me, this jacket was not warm for its weight. The fleece component of the jacket was very thin, seemingly there only for feel, and the wool doesn't seem to contribute much warmth. Compared to a similarly priced fully-fleece jacket, this was not warm.
I found the wool to be itchy. Theoretically the fleece interior should help with this, but the cuffs and the outside of the hood inevitably touch your skin and itch.
I also found the fit to be poor. I'm a Large in virtually everything I wear, but this Large was baggy in the abdomen and sleeves, despite being described as a "trim fit".
