Rated 1 out of 5 by Mkfj Disappointing product
I love the weight of this sweater but it pilled excessively within a few wears, to the point that it looked awful. I expected this to be something i could wear for many seasons, like lots of LLBean products. not this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Terp115 Nice Shade of Red
I was looking for a sweater in a nice warm red for winter, because cooler reds don't suit me. This is a good warm shade, but not too orange. I also like the style of the pockets and the trim, which really give it a pop, stylewise.
I normally wear a small or extra small, but got the medium as that was the smallest size left in red. Because it is a cardigan/hoodie, the larger size looks good, and the sleeves are long enough, which is nice (I am almost 5'8", so sleeve length can be an issue at times).
The wool is light and soft, good for layering.
All in all, a nice addition to my winter wardrobe. Would love to see other sweater styles in this color.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dlbj poor quality wool
Sure wish I read the reviews before buying this sweater. I've only worn it a few times and the sleeves and body have so much pilling, it looks terrible. When I spend so much on a sweater I want it to look good for a long time. I'm sending it back. And I really wanted to like it.

Rated 1 out of 5 Excessive pilling
I really want to love this sweater. It's warm, soft and fits well. But it is pilling excessively on the sleeves just after 3 days of use. I was hoping this product would be have Bean's standard high quality and be reasonably priced-but no, this was a disappointment.

Rated 1 out of 5 Disappointing sweater
This sweater has so much going for it, but it starting pilling as soon as I put it on. Within three days, I could no longer wear it in public because it looked shabby. The fit and style are great, but the wool used to manufacture the sweater were subpar. This did not meet my expectations of an LLBean product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rene1 Quality knit, comfortable and great fit.
I don't often write reviews although I depend on them so much when I order on line. So that being said I had to write about how impressed I am with this sweater. I bought two, one in the gray and the other in the oatmeal color. The quality of the wool and the knit is outstanding. I ordered the XS regular, I am just 5' tall and about 112bs, the fit is great. I love the stripe detailing and the hood. Very sporty in an elegant sort of way. One of the nicest products I've ordered from LLBean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beaniefreak Smart, smooth, classy sweater Hoodie
Not only does this knit hoodie keep me warm, it has lots of style with stripes inside the hood, matching contour lines around the generous pockets and contrasting knit at the sides and bottom hem. I love it in Red. A nice change-up from fleece.

I was SO happy to see an all-wool sweater from Bean. They've been in short supply the last several years (except for the cashmere). Cotton is not warm enough for me in the winter, and the mixed fiber ones with acrylic simply do not hold up. I have very old Bean wool sweaters that I still wear but have been very disappointed Bean has gone to mostly blends with acrylic or nylon blends or cotton. The cashmere is always lovely but I also need more rugged wool sweaters!
This sweater is perfect?warm, stylish, comfortable & a good fit. I love that it's slightly felted & all wool & not at all itchy! I wear a size 8 top usually but bought a medium in this as it's rather slim fitting & I don't like things too tight. It's very comfortable over a pima turtleneck. It's the perfect length, a bit longer than other Bean sweaters. Please offer in more colors (purples, teals, deep blues)

Rated 5 out of 5 by eilskd Great product
I got the warm red color & it is beautiful. The quality of wool & construction is excellent. I am petite 5'1" & I got the small because I wanted to layer. The length of sleeve & body is very good; maybe XS would work too. Overall I am very happy with this sweater & recommends it for a very casual look.
