Rated 5 out of 5 by PastPerfect1 Awesome fit!
Finally found an exercise jacket with the three features I really wanted:
1. Long length (if it's cold enough to wear a jacket, I want my butt to be warm, too!)
2. Long sleeve length with thumb holes.
3. Smartphone pocket with earphone cord hole - I can't believe how many jackets don't have this feature!
My only complaint is that the jacket isn't offered in some neon colors; I exercise mostly outside, and prefer high visibility colors in my fitness wear. (I ordered the blue, and it's a decently bright color.)
Warmth rating is better than I expected: I've been very comfortable in 30+degree weather with just a jog bra and one long-sleeve layer on underneath.
Fit is very close; if you're body-conscious, you might not prefer this jacket style. For reference, I am 5'3, 118 lbs., and Size Small fits me really well.

I ordered this jacket to wear as a cover up to be worn after working out in tights. The jacket is not cut long enough that I felt comfortable wearing it post workout to do my around town errands.
Nice quality, just didn't work for my purpose. Would love it if LL Bean made a fitness jacket that was cut to mid-thigh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jackie08 Great for morning walks
The fabric is very soft and stretchy, moves moisture away from the body during jogging. The fabric content is as follows: 88%-polyester, 12%-elastane. There are two side zip-pockets to keep the keys safe while exercising. Longer length is very flattering for a lean body. I am 5'10" tall and 145 lbs and size Medium (M) fits me perfectly.

I bought this for yoga and walking my dog. Very pleased with the quality of the garment. I am 5 ft 6 in tall and weigh 125 lbs- purchased a small. It is closely fitted, stylish and comfortable. A person with a full curvy figure may need to size up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Detmom Love this! Which there were more colors!
I liked the idea of this jacket because it looked longer than other similar style jackets. It is really awesome. Many manufacturers of jackets with thumb holes neglect to actually make the sleeves longer to accommodate them. Not an issue with this jacket. I like this so much, I may actually get a second color. Too bad the color selection is so limited. For reference, I am 5'6", 130lbs and the small fit me perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Samadhi Slim fit, mid-weight jacket
Like the slim fit--gathering in back sits right at my waist so enhances the slimming effect,
Mid-weight makes it great for cool fall weather.
Styling dresses it up a bit--I plan to use it as a casual jacket on Saturday mornings or for running errands after yoga class.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NJMom270 Can't wait to wear my sweather
Love the color, love the fabric, which is substantial, but not bulky. I tried this in an XS and it was a bit too tight, but the S is fine. It was hard to find a sport sweater that is a cardigan, has no hood, and had the thumb-hole sleeves. This one is perfect. Can't comment yet on durability or how it holds up to washing. But generally LLBean's things are durable, and their staff are very helpful.
