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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anneindyshopper This is Not a Sweatshirt
If you are looking for a sweatshirt that will keep you warm, move on. This is advertised as a mid weight material, but it is not even that. I would call it extra light weight. Why is it so hard to find a Women's warm weight sweatshirt jacket, that's Not a hoodie?

Just received my sweatshirt today and absolutely love it already! It's a the perfect length and fit--not too tight or baggy. Very figure flattering on my not terribly fit sz. L frame. Love it so much I just ordered 2 more!
This will gets lots of wear--can't wait!

Rated 1 out of 5 by NorthernLiora Shade Blue is a pale shade of blue
It can't just be my monitor, because I've never been so surprised by the color of something I ordered. If I had known the real color beforehand, I would not have ordered it. Powder/baby blue are just not my colors. Now I am going to have to pay an arm and a leg to send it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yorktownlady Excellent for petite women
This jacket has wonderful lines and a smooth fit. The sleeves are a bit long for a petite size but that's OK. You can turn them up and they look fine. The sleeves are not too tight in the upper arm. It's comfortable to wear a t-shirt underneath the jacket and still feel free to move.

Its wonderful that at long last the petite department has color options other than those for the very young...not just young at heart. However, its somewhat disappointing to see LLBeans quality standards relax more and more. The sleeves are a tad long for petite and the matching pants legs are rather wide. I expect more for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SpinnerWeaver Great except for one thing
I love these jackets and pants and wear them until they are threadbare. The only problem I've encountered is that the zipper pulls broke off two of the jackets and I was forced to use the jackets as pullovers as I wore them toward rag status.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tynsal Soft, smooth, especially nice feeling fabric.
Recently purchased this in gray. I like the zip up neck which is good cold protection under a jacket that doesn't have a high neck. I normally wear a 1X but got this in XLPetite so it would be shorter and also because I'm rather tired of paying extra for the Plus sizes. So it's maybe a bit snug but still looks fine for casual wear or as extra layer under a fleece or jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by frenchteacher Great fitting jacket
I have 4 of these jackets and 2 crew-neck sweatshirts. Very soft and the fit is perfect. Thanks for offering Petite sizes. I would like to see a 1/4-zip sweatshirt, too.
