I ordered this jacket in taupe during one of L.L. Bean's site-wide sales to wear before and after yoga class. When it arrived, I thought it was okay but nothing special. Believe me, it has grown on me! I've found myself gravitating toward it whenever I want a snuggly, comfortable layer to sink into, and now it's my favorite fleece. The inside, with its checkered pattern, is soft and fuzzy, and that pattern is subtly apparent on the outside of the fabric, too, giving the jacket a unique appearance. I also appreciate the slightly longer length and the lack of pills after washing. In fact, I like this jacket so much that I ordered it in sea glass as well--a lovely, deep color. How about a dark gold for spring, Bean folks?

My purchase of XS Reg. fits my 5' frame and weight -100 lbs very well. I was surprised at the hoodie's long length, but I'm used to it now and it covers one's butt especially when wearing yoga or tight pants. The overall fit is slim and flattering.

I love this item. The bottom is a little large but over all fits well. I like the style and my husband says it looks nice on me. I have been wearing it a lot and am thinking about purchasing another on in a different color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TinaJM Favorite Hoodie Ever!
I love this hoodie. I bought it in coral and just came back and bought the other two colors. It's not boxy at all and just fitted enough to look feminine. It keeps me warm walking my doggies in the a.m. from about the low 50s (with a long sleeve shirt underneath) to the upper 60s. The thumb holes in the sleeve are nice for cooler mornings. It's pricey, but well worth it. I have washed my coral hoodie twice and it washes wonderfully and no pilling. These will be my "go-to" hoodies for quite some time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sweatersavvy Not for me
The material and rich color of this hoodie were very nice, but the shape wasn't flattering. It seemed to run small, so I sent it back.

This hoodie is so cute! I got the coral, and it's very vibrant, which I like. I was worried I wouldn't like that it is part polyester, but it's very soft and comfy. It's seems to be good in the 60's and low 70's so far. I like that it's nice and long and has a nice shape - not too boxy, just slightly curved in at the waist. With the coral, the stitching doesn't stand out too much, which was a little bit of my worry with the green. I think I may still want to get the green at some point, though. I wish it also came in white. Overall, love it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hello7 "Technical Fabric"
I don't know the blend of cotton to synthetic, but the fabric is strange, not warm, and I don't like the patterning. The inside isn't plush. It's not styled as a workout jacket but the fabric is, so it's an odd creation which I don't care for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cupcake3 My new favorite
I absolutely love this hoodie. I almost didn't order it because it looked too long and too fitted, and, at 5-foot-1, I favor petite sizes. I gambled on the XS Regular in sea glass and won. The extra length looks great with skinny jeans and the longer sleeves pull down into perfect hand-warmers. Feels just right over a long-sleeved T. Have had compliments on both color and fit.

I often marvel at reviewers who say, "I have ten of these! One in every color!" Wow, would I ever buy so many of any clothing piece? I didn't think so...that is, until I met the Lily Pond Hoodie. I purchased this in the beautiful Sea Glass and was instantly hooked. A few weeks later I bought the Soft Gray (see photo), and if there were more colors I'd probably buy them too! Sadly Coral just isn't a good color on me. In my search for the perfect LLBean hoodie, I found others too bulky, boxy, or generally shapeless to my taste. This hoodie has structure without bulk, interesting details like contrasting interior fabric and metal tips on the hood drawstring, a narrower, more feminine fit, and sweetly, soft fabric to the touch. This is not a warm hoodie, mind. It's a light layer with technical features, though I've not used it for exercise personally. It's just my cozy, soft layer I wear around the house or out and about. I usually have the sleeves pulled down for thumb hole use, one of my favorite features, but in the photo below sleeves are folded up. I'm wearing a size Small and you can see the bottom band is still rather loose - the only downside for me. I'm 5'6" and 150lbs for reference.
I'm so happy I found the Lily Pond!
