Rated 4 out of 5 by bmc1129 Thin, soft hoodie
Wish this was available in green, but it wasn't so we settled for blue. My son loved that it has a hood and pockets and looks like a sweatshirt. I read the reviews before purchasing, so knew it was a tee shirt in a sweatshirt style. It is soft, though I was almost hoping for a softer material that I sometimes find in these tees. My son (and I) really like soft fabrics, however, this is a nice weight fabric to layer something over and not uncomfortable for him at all. I'd say this is a 3 season tee that's perfect for a little boy. I purchased a 6x/7 for my small to average 6.5 year old boy hoping he could get at least a year out of this, and I think he will. It's generously sized (a 5/6 would fit him well now) and will get a fair amount of wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EgansMom Lightweight Hoodie
My son really likes this new purchase. He always runs hot; can't keep a long sleeve on him even during Michigan winters. I'm hoping this lightweight hoodie might make the cut. Also, really like the modern colors and styling. Wish we could have gotten the green, but the blue is nice too. The larger head opening is a big bonus. He is 7and1/2, but on the small side, so the 6x/7 is a bit too big.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BoysInTheHouse I thought it was a sweatshirt, but...
As it turns out, this is a long-sleeved hooded thin t-shirt. I bought it because it looked like a sweatshirt and I guess even the description didn't make me realize it wasn't. We will keep it. It will work in fall/winter if layered with shirts underneath. But just so you know, it's not a sweatshirt.

I have a hard time finding soft enough clothes for my son. This soft comfortable hoodie passed with flying colors. He loves it! It's well made and a great fit! I will definitely buy more in the future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rensreviews Great hoodie!
Since my 8 year old is really into hoodies these days, I was pleased to find this on the clearance rack recently. Got the blue one but now I wish I had gotten the green one as well. My son LOVES it! Its light weight enough to wear on cooler summer nights here in the northeast and when it gets even colder he can wear it with a shirt underneath for layers. Must add that my son is usually in a Medium (size 8) and LL Bean's medium is 10-12, but it fits my son great. Just loose enough on him to be super comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GtownMomofBoys Great Lightweight Hoodie shirt
This has a t-shirt feel. I love the way it fits my 8.5 year old. It's very comfortable and just the right thing for those chilly summer mornings or summer evenings. Great color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AJRom Very lightweight, but my son loves it!
My 6 year old is very fair and loves hoodies. Now that the weather is getting warmer, I was looking for a lightweight hoodie. As other reviews mentioned, this is more of a t-shirt hoodie than something to keep you warm. With the 50+ SPF, this is ideal. It keeps the sun off of areas like the back of his neck which can easily burn, yet is lightweight enough that he doesn't get too hot. I am getting another one so I don't have to wash it as often.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Catherine212 More Like a T-Shirt
This is very light-weight and much more like a long sleeved t-shirt than a sweatshirt. I plan on returning it. This is the first item from LL Bean that I've ever been disappointed with.
