Rated 5 out of 5 by BetsyBK LOVE IT!
I have a number of these. They are perfect for wearing at work, out to dinner or just running around. I wear these all year long. Living in Arizona, all the air conditioning in the Summer freezes you out. The material is substantial without being flimsy. The look is both professional and casual. Fit is true to size and I use a quick iron to press. I highly recommend these.I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE LL Bean

Rated 5 out of 5 by ArizonaMom lightweight, slimming, professional
I love this light jacket/sweater! I have it in 3 different colors (ink black, eggplant and heather navy). I wear it to work over a pima cotton t-shirt and it looks and feels great. I wear a large in the t-shirt and a medium in this sweater.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bschenen almost perfect
The addition of on seam pockets would make this the perfect cardigan. Weight and drape are both really nice. Some small storage would be a real asset.

Rated 5 out of 5 by QualityShopper Perfect match
First, let me clarify that my review is on the solid heather blue flyaway cardigan which I bought along with the heather blue and black striped tank. I was surprised to read a lot of negative reviews which my review will be opposite of. I found the thickness to be fitting for fall and spring wear; no bulkier and no more neckline material than any of my other flyaway cardigans. The color match of the two pieces was perfect. Laundered well; cold water; low heat. I'm contemplating buying a set for my daughter-in-law and also wondering if the raspberry would match another brand flyaway I already own. Truthfully, I am disappointed that LLB products are no longer all made in the USA.

Rated 1 out of 5 Too heavy
This item is way too heavy. The folds are made with too much material. You shouldn't feel "weighed down" by a cardigan type top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ladeda Black cardigan is perfect!
I bought this for travel, after having been really disappointed by poor quality in two similar jackets made by other companies. I wish I'd just gone to Bean in the first place and saved myself the wasted time and money. I can't find a single fault with this cardigan! It fits perfectly with no weird surprises, the fabric is a great weight - substantial but not bulky. It packs well and drapes beautifully. I ignored the washing instructions and did what I do with almost everything I own: machine wash on warm, machine dry on medium. It came out just as nice as it went in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NoSpam Not well constructed
I am disappointed. I like the shape - it covers up many defects - and the fabric. But it has not been well put together. Instructions said to wash in cold water before wearing. When it came out of the few minutes in the dryer, one bottom front hem was bunched unevenly and made a lump causing a dip in the bottom stripe. I haven't decided whether to return it. This is not $64.50 quality construction - more like $19.95.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kathy79707 Color difference
I ordered the Indispensible knit fly away cardigan in blue and the striped indispensible knit top shell in blue and black stripes. When they arrived, I saw that the colors were absolutley not compatable. The Fly Away Cardigan was called "deep blue heather" and the shell was called "ink blk," although both on the website and the catalog they appear to be the same. This looked like a set but was not. I will say they seemed to be very good quality. I am just sorry they did not go together.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JZMButterfly disappointing - tears/holes in fabric at collar
Nice jacket and nice material, I like the comfortable flow and style, but unfortunately, after just a couple time of wearing and washings on delicate, this top has developed tiny tears/rips especially along and in the collar - there must be about 8 holes in the collar! Not sure what happened to this fabric, but it is disappointing and I will send it back for refund.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Happy25y Mismatched stripes
This is an elegantly styled cardigan. I love the "flyaway" look and the generous fit. However, the stripes in the deep raspberry/ink black combo were not lined up properly on one side of the front panel which cheapened the appearance of the garment. This was a rare disappointment in the quality of LL Bean merchandise, and for this reason I returned it and exchanged for the solid deep raspberry color.
