Rated 3 out of 5 by edg1 way too big
I'm 6'5 and 180 lb. Ordered Medium Tall. I felt that was like a XXL. It was comically wide and long. It's a shame to. This thing looked super warm, heavy, and comfortable.

You can't go wrong with this sweatshirt. Living in NW PA, it's perfect when worn with a flannel shirt (LL Bean). I have two and bought one for my son who lives in Washington State. He has told me several times, this is his go to sweat shirt. Excellent quality, nice fit, and very comfortable. A winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hawkeyedude Wears Like Iron
My aunt gave me this sweatshirt five or six years ago. I live in northern California so it is ideal for most of our winter weather. I always keep this sweatshirt handy - in the car, by the front door, where ever it is going to be close at hand. It is plenty warm and the fit is flexible enough that I can put a sweater or another sweatshirt on under it on really cold, windy days. The only complaint that I have is that the zipper doesn't go up high enough for me. However, the sweatshirt wears like iron, takes a beating, and still looks fresh after years of hard use. I definitely recommend this sweatshirt as one that will wear well, keep you warm, and still look new.

Ordered the deep balsam/dark khaki last week and received it as per the expected delivery time. My husband is partial to hoodies and wanted to buy a really good one. I've seen this sweatshirt for a long time now and have read the favorable reviews, so I confidently suggested that we order this for him. Its really pricey, especially for us Canadians but I trusted LLBean products from items we've ordered from the past. The only apprehension we had was sizing. The associate I've chatted with determined that Medium is my husband's size based on the chest size and shoulder/arm length.Only caveat is his midsection, which is wider than his chest.So the associate suggested going a size up. My husband decided to stick with the Med as he felt that Large might be too long for him in terms of sleeve length, reasoning that if he's wrong, he can easily return the merchandise. Thankfully, it fit him well. Not too snug or tight in the midsection but just right. At least this will give him the motivation to try and shave off a few pounds.:-) He was so happy with his order that if this item should be on sale in the future, he wants to buy one again in a different color. I wish they offer this hoodie for women, too!

If you can catch this thing at the sale price then you found a pretty good deal. The full price of $74 is too much unless it lasts a really long time. This is yet to be seen since I just got mine but I have my doubts. It's warm and certainly a nice hoodie. It has stood up nicely to the March winds but for $74 I would expect something exceptional and I just don't get that out of this sweatshirt. I'm going with 4 stars more because it is Good, definitely better than average, but a long way from excellent.

I bought this for myself. I find some of the women's clothing on LLBean not long enough. I like my clothes to be longer than hip length. I also wanted this for layering. It's a little bit big, but that is what I wanted. It's very soft and warm, and I love everything about it.

I purchased this item many years ago and was disappointed when the cuffs frayed away. This was not uncommon as someone I knew had a similar problem. So I ordered a new one and checked the size of my old one as it was still a comfortable item. When the order arrived the size large was extremely tight fitting wearing only a sweatshirt underneath. So I got an extra large which was a more loose fitting item. I still think this is a good item in spite of the cuffs wearing away.

This is the second of this type sweatshirt I have ordered for my husband. He loves it's warmth, softness and feel. After several years of frequent winter wear and some fraying at the sleeve edges, it was time to order another for him. The 'tall" comfortably accommodates his 6'3" height.

Fits great (I am tall so I ordered the long), high quality, fleece lining is soft, cotton is sturdy, nylon lined sleeves to help with wind and easier to get on and off, and I love the zippered pouches in the pockets. Couldn't be better.

I have this, but it is flannel lined. If they ever bring back that version I will buy 3 at least.
