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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MsLovelace Warm and Cozy
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!

Rated 2 out of 5 by JanL51 Sleeves ripped in record time
I bought this shirt for my grandson last winter. He loved it because it was similar to one I had bought for his dad (he did not like the hood though). In a matter of weeks, both elbows had ripped to shreds. It was almost as if the fabric was dry rotted or something. This was beyond "normal wear and tear". I sent it back. I read another review that mentioned the ripping as well. I would love to get another one, but am afraid the quality would still be the same.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PlaidBuyer Why the hood?
My son has lived in versions of this shirt for the last 3 winters (they are fantastic BTW). He asked this morning if I could get him another but I'm not loving the hood for school. Is there a collared version?

Rated 5 out of 5 by nataliewb He Won't Take it Off!
I bought one of these last year in a blue/grey plaid, and my 12 yo wore it constantly, even when it was pretty warm out. Now he has outgrown it, and the sleeve ripped (from wear), so we need to get a new one. I am thinking about getting two, since he loved it so much. These are warm, comfortable, and perfect for a cool fall or spring day as an outer layer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PatsyEddie Where have these gone?!
I own two of these and my daughter (12) one. I have been trying since last year to get one for my son (10), but there is only 1 boys size available (8). No men's small or extra small. I had to get my daughter a women's extra small last summer because there were no girl's sizes. Now there are no women's or girl's sizes at all. Why aren't they available? Such a great product.
