Rated 4 out of 5 by knittinglyyours Good light weight sweatshirt/jacket
Just received this jacket in mallard; it's really a dark turquoise. I think of mallard as more green. It fits as it's described - falls to low hips. But I will just make one generic comment to all mfgs. Some of us larger women have 'muffin tops/love handles' on our sides and we DO NOT LIKE CLOTHES THAT ARE FITTED. Why can't you offer some garments that hang straight down from the shoulders? Yes, that's a bit boxy but it looks better than these fitted garments. I will keep this jacket because I like the fabric, I ordered a size larger so it wouldn't 'fit' me, and, in spite of the color name, it's a pretty color. Can we please have some relaxed clothing that is truly relaxed and does not fit like a second skin on us larger women? This also goes for T's and turtles, too. I want them loose.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mypoodles Soft, nice length but no zipper pockets
I like your fleece and sweat shirt jackets for wearing around in semi warm weather. I ordered this one as it stated that it was low hip length. I like them long, some of your fleece jackets are too short.
I returned it because it had no zipper pockets. Zipper pockets are wonderful. I shall order another jacket with zipper pockets as it is pretty, nice color and texture.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 49er Totally disappointing
Styling is nice, but the French terry material is very thin, narrow and clingy fit. Color is lighter than shown on webpage, I expected some variance due to screen, but not this light. Overpriced for what it is - the value is not there at this price point even on sale (also bought matching pants for set.) Overall a very disappointing purchase experience. Returning asap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sweatersavvy Wonderful lightweight jacket
I ordered this in XL in dark green and washed and dried it according to the garment instructions. Everything is good about the jacket including the color which matches the color online. I am about to order another in light teal. I am 5'8", 160 pounds and the XL is just a little roomy which is exactly what I wanted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lorrose Colors too washed out
You make beautiful clothes with some gorgeous colors. I love this Jacket and actually have 4 of them, but I am so disappointed by the dull washed out colors. Why not give us some beautiful rich vibrant colors. I would buy all of them..I am a large Petite and this fits and feels perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Redwig Comfortable, light and casual
I just got this today in Heather Gray and love the way it looks and fits. Just the right weight for summer, not too heavy. I ordered one size smaller (normally wear Small) like reviewers suggested and got the Extra Small. So glad I did, it fits me perfectly all around. I am 5'5", 105 lbs., with a small frame and 35" bust. Often tops and jackets will fit me everywhere else, but be tight in the chest. Plenty of room in this jacket. I already washed and dried it enough to get wrinkles out before hanging up damp. It didn't shrink at all. Very happy with this purchase and thinking about another color.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by LaidbackDyke Perfect lightweight snuggly sweats
It was exactly what I was looking for to wear indoors during cooler weather, and outdoors, around 60-75 F (I tend to get the chills), lighter than a typical sweatshirt, heavier than a long-sleeved cotton T. It's a very relaxed fit; I wanted a closer fit so I got a petite S, which surprisingly fit my curvy 5'3" 135lb 36C frame super well, even though I usually wear size 10-12 fitted tops. Like almost everyone says, it feels great on the skin, even if it's not that fuzzy fleecy lining that some sweats have -- better, I think, if you're actually sweating. The zipper is the plastic kind that's tucked into its fabric so you don't feel cold metal against bare skin at your neck/chest (my pet peeve). What I really don't get is the seemingly random color options. Petite grey and navy were already out when I ordered, leaving olive, island coral and aqua green, and unfortunately I can't stand pastels so I settled on olive; not bad, but I hoped for something brighter/bolder. *hint*

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oceanpacific Ultrasoft Sweat Full Zip Mock-Neck Jacket
jacket arrived today with matching pants in grey. I ordered a 1X jacket hoping it would fit as I usually wear a 2X. Reviews said it ran large and that is true as the 1X fits fine. Lite weight this will be perfect for cool mornings and evenings. Excellent quality. Pants I ordered a smaller size XL and they fit fine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by cloudyblue2 Comfy but HUGE
This sweatshirt is quite comfortable but it is ENORMOUS! I ordered a medium (I'm 150lbs) and I was swimming in it. I normally wear medium to large from other stores. It was just too wide/too much loose fabric. I considered getting a small but I think the proportions are just off, so I returned it. For the price, I want something that is more fitted/flattering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MountainWalker Sizing Change?
I have 2 of these zip mock neck jackets and love them. I ordered another in the same size, didn't try it on before laundering. When I put it on I found it is much larger than the other 2 I have. The sleeves are about 2" longer and the body length is also longer by about 2". It doesn't work to just roll the cuffs up since it is so much longer. I don't know if it was mis-marked with size or the sizing has truly been changed. I bought one for a family member last summer. She had to exchange the M for a S and normally wears a M so I am suspicious the sizing has changed. However, no one else has mentioned this in the reviews. This is a wonderful zip neck jacket and I wear the 2 I have every week. If you are a regular LL Bean shopper as I am make sure you try this item on as the sizing may have changed. I hope customer service can help me exchange it for the proper fit.
