Rated 5 out of 5 by Thyme4Tia Love it!
It is very comfortable, very soft. Not heavy feeling. Not bulky. I haven't tried it in the rain. It blocks the wind about the same as a fleece jacket. This is definitely becoming my favorite take along jacket. I had been wearing it for about 2 weeks and just yesterday noticed that on the back right hip area it has a few reflective dots - inconspicuous and typical of the LL Bean quality - just that little extra makes a big difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LVLLB2 Warm and cozy.
Color was more bright orange but I don't mind it. Great fit and keeps me warm! Love how soft it is next to my skin. I'm 5'2" 110 lbs and the XS fit perfectly.

Never loose your keys or cell phone again with the zipped pockets on this hoodie jacket. Wonderful fit, great color and did I mention the pockets that zip?

Rated 5 out of 5 by cwmair Love this jacket!
This is my favorite jacket - I actually wear it as part of my outfit. The LLBean model does not do this justice! It is so comfortable and flattering. I am 5'5" and weigh 128 and an XS fits snug but extremely comfortable. The sleeves are plenty long and the length is perfect - it doesn't ride up at all! The color is definitely more orange than red but that's what I like about it since I am an ILLINI alum - go orange and blue!! I am thinking about getting this same jacket in blue. Can't recommend this highly enough!

I bought the jacket in purple, which I really like, it's nice and colorful. The fit is very close making it hard to wear anything loose underneath as the sleeves will bunch up and you have to tuck them into the hoodie sleeves. Not something I like to do. If you want this for wearing with tight clothes such as a workout tank/bra or tight fitting sleeved shirt, it is great. It blocks the wind good and is very soft and stretchy. The sleeves are longer due to the thumb hole. I live in FL and during our last cold snap it was great to wear over a tank top in the cool morning. I also like the tight hood. I intend to use it under L.L. Bean's Gore Tex jacket while on an Alaskan cruise this summer and I tried them together out in the cold wind and the combo was perfect. Don't buy it if you are looking for a loose fit. I am 5'-3", 120 lbs and I ordered the XS. Fit is perfect, but close.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Uncgirl1 Love this hoodie jacket!
I got the jacket in blue...love the color, fit, style and fabric. I am 5'6", 135 lbs, 34a and the medium fits nicely with room for layering. It blocks the wind well and sheds light rain. After looking at several similar jackets, I am happy with the quality and features for a reasonable price. Highly recommend!

Rated 2 out of 5 by lrun Add made it look heavier and more durable
I kept the shirt. Its not really a performance jacket except for spring running.
I thought it would be heavier, more of a wind blocker fabric. It is basically a fleece shirt.
Loved the color.
Sleeve length was short - the thumb holes wont be used by me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LoveVermont Good quality, great for cold weather exercise
This hoodie has worked really well for cold weather running. I thought it ran a little small so returned it for a bigger size (I usually wear LL Bean medium...) I wish I had stayed with the medium since the large is a lot larger but since it is not bulky that's not a problem. The thumb holes are a nice touch and fit under running gloves fine. All in all better than running in a sweatshirt. Would love to see them add reflective tape for early morning visibility...

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bostonrunner Great fit
This is a warm jacket with a nice, slim fit -- perfect for cold weather runs or for just wearing around on a weekend. I have gotten tons of compliments on the purple color, too! I am tall (5' 9 1/2") and broad shouldered and bought a M -- the L fit me a little better in terms of sleeve length, but I wanted the top to fit so no cold air would seep up when I run. I plan to use this when I go skiing this winter too.
