Rated 4 out of 5 by RetiredBeanBuyer Nice jacket
Love the feel of the fabric and most of the fit. I am Petite XL and I have to roll up the sleeves - do not like doing that. The sleeves seem like a regular size.
But, I do roll them up and enjoy the give in the fabric too. Would maybe buy another color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EnjoyOutdoorsLLBean Perfect Light Jacket
I love this jacket. It is perfect to wear in the fall and spring. I ordered it in a Petite Medium, and I like that the fit is not too snug and not too loose. I am 5'4" and the jacket and the sleeves are just the right length. Someone in another review mentioned that the teal color was almost black. I must have a different dye lot because mine is a nice teal color. This will be a great jacket to wear during our days of mild temperatures here in the South.

Rated 5 out of 5 by trink7 Perfect weight , soft and comfortable....
I have both the navy and grey in this jacket...and just love them ...on a 3-wk road trip, I kept both in the back seat so I could grab one when going into a restaurant or just to ward off cool breezes.
So glad they come in Petite.....just right...and so soft and great tailoring. They always look nice, no matter what I wear them with.
I love the Ultrasoft sweatpants too...waiting now for 2 more pair.
Thank you for these!

I really loved this jacket, so glad it comes in Petite.
The zipper is a bit problematic but after a few times it got better. It was basically just hard to start the zipper from the bottom.
My only complaint as usual is I wish LlBean had some brighter colors. I am very pale and look good in bright blues, reds, bright whites, Aqua, etc. I did buy the deep sea blue and it looked great till my tan faded... At least have one bright color for all of us that look washed out in moss green, Navy blue, grey, etc.
and please, more petites!

Rated 3 out of 5 by 94Mimi Soft and nice fit but...
These nice soft jackets are great until you go to zip them. The material is sewn so close to the ends of the zipper it is either difficult or impossible to thread the zipper without catching some material. I ordered two - one I can zip IF I am very careful and the other is impossible to start. I know LL Bean will make good on it and I hope a replacement will zip without catching the material because I really like the way they fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ClothingHorse Soft Classic Styled Jacket
Received today and love it. It fits perfectly, looks classic which is better for this 70 year old than hoodie versions. The mulberry is a bit more purple in the light, but it's beautiful. I purchased this with the navy straight legged sweat pants. It's a great combination, and both are extremely soft, and feel good against the skin. The length of the jacket and the sleeves are wonderful since I'm 5' 9" tall. These are sweats not just for the house or a walk; they are nice enough to wear out anywhere, not bulky like old versions. Very pleased. Have not washed yet and too warm to wear presently, but I think they will be great in later fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AgingGracefully Nice weight and fit
Happy to find a zip front sweatshirt style jacket that doesn't have a hood! This has a substantial zipper, nice soft cotton, medium weight, and not a snug fit. And the collar lies flat like a blouse collar or it can be zipped up into a turtleneck. In the picture it looks a it snug even though the description says 'relaxed.' The description is correct. I normally wear a size 6 and am in my senior years. This is comfy and fits easily in a size Small. Great for going to the gym, grocery shopping or just needing a bit of extra warmth around the house. I'll definitely buy at least one more of these. p.s. It also washes and dries with no shrinkage. Hooray. Keep the temp low, tho.

Nice design for a sweatshirt. Like the gray since it is lighter than other colors. Petite worked for me since I did not want it too long. Fit perfectly, even for 5' 6.5" tall.

I've been looking for a standup-collar NO HOODIE full-zip cotton jacket for three years and finally discovered this one. I am just thrilled. It is so soft, has some cool details like the tab on the zipper, and I love stripes!!
Seriously, what's with all the hoodies? We're not on the playground anymore.
Note: this is a bit large on me but I don't care, I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RITownie Love, love, love this jacket
I bought this in the grey color. I wanted a lightweight jacket to keep in the car and take into places with me to ward off the cold AC. This jacket is perfect. Soft, lightweight, comfortable. The sleeves were a little too long so I just rolled them back and it's perfect. I'm thinking of buying in other colors. I love a full zip sweatshirt with no hood. You've outdone yourself Bean....keep it going.
