Rated 1 out of 5 Yes - why the hood?
This turns a dress-code acceptable shirt into weekend only wear. Please, LL Bean, bring back the one with the collar. My son loves this shirt madly and would like to be able to wear it at school too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by criticalaboutclothing Why the hood?
The original collared version was perfect. I'm so disappointed LL Bean added the hood.
Please bring back the original.
This discovery just ruined my morning break, not lol!
It will also ruin the rest of my son's day when he gets home from school.

Rated 5 out of 5 by scotsdog Great shirt jacket!
Purchased the same item last year without the hood. Wore it all the time. The quality is great as usual. Had to have another one and I liked that this one had a hood. Would have preferred that the hood be made out of the same material as the shirt itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IJustKeepComingBack Cozy and handsome outer layer
This is the second time I've bought this shirt for my 5-year old son (he keeps growing!), and I envision continuing to buy one or two each fall. It's a great layer for cool Pacific Northwest fall days, and my son likes the hood. It's perfect over a tee shirt, but a bit bulky to wear under a fleece. But it's so warm, a fleece isn't needed!

Rated 1 out of 5 by dlnk Please bring back the collared version
The old version with a collar was the best. It was cozy and warm so my son wanted to wear it all the time, but the collar dressed it up so he could wear it with khaki pants and still look nice. That is not the case with the hooded version.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MultiplesNY Please offer the 'old' version without hood
I'm surprised that LLBean would stop selling the traditional version of this fantastic product! The hooded version is going after a look that's actually on its way out. Why not stick to what was a sell-out year after year? People want traditional, classic looks these days...especially for kids. Also where's the girl version of this shirt? This is a classic "fixing something that wasn't broken." Please at least offer the simple collared version too.

I purchased this for my son. Great quality, very thick and warm. This could be used as a jacket for warmer Spring/Fall days. The material is very durable. Very happy with my purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PunkPoet Always get compliments on this hoodie!
I am a petite woman and I have this in green and red (size XL, wear a woman's 4/6; could probably go with a L but like things roomy.) Folks at work are always complimenting me on how cozy and stylish this looks. So comfy and warm, yet not too bulky. Works well under a coat. A perfect purchase. You won't be disappointed, this is one of LLBean's new classics :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Claire24 My kids' favorite!
I bought one for each of my kids (age 9 and 12). They basically live in it. It's their go-to jacket. Warm, comfortable, easy to get on and off. Not bulky or too heavy. Plus it's fun and colorful. It washed well too. One of LL Bean's better products. We live at 7000 feet and it gets pretty cold and snowy yet my kids prefer this jacket over their winter coat. They can move easily in it and it's just all around cozy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RennieMac My Son LIVES in This Shirt
My son had one of these last year and wore it all the time. When I tried to order another, they were out of stock. We were happy to see it was back this season! We bought the blue version a few months ago and he has been wearing it non-stop. Just ordered another in red.
Unlike some other reviewers -- we think the hood makes this shirt. I believe there is a normal flannel lined shirt without a hood, for those of you who wondered why there was a hood. My son super likes the hood. PLEASE keep the hood. And keep making this shirt/jacket, LLBean!
