Rated 3 out of 5 by RockerBoomer Katahdin Iron Works Heavyweight Sweatshirt
The Full-Zip ( without hood ) Katahdin Iron Works Heavyweight Sweatshirt has non functional front/side seam pockets that can't keep coins, keys, cell phones or nearly anything else in them because the seams are open on the side allowing everything to fall out when you sit or bend. A simple piece of Velcro could solve this.
Otherwise, it's everything else as advertised. Tip: This sweatshirt in the HOODED VERSION has corrected the pocket issue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by momMontana Not a true tall
This is a great sweatshirt BUT it is very boxy and is not really a true tall size. We usually buy LLBean for my 6'5 husband because they are so generously long but not this sweatshirt. It is a disappointment because he loved the fleece lining and the pockets.

Rated 1 out of 5 by wetnwindy Horrible Pocket Design!
The pockets on this jacket are not only non-functional they make it look "dumpy". The pockets are made of the same fabric as the sweatshirt, are big and they just sort of "float" in between the outer shell and inner lining. This allows all the pocket fabric to just sag down to the hemline inside creating a big wad that looks and feels awful. In addition to this they are open all the way down the side so nothing stays in them, Overall the jacket would have been much improved if they had left out the pockets altogether.

Rated 2 out of 5 by NEWinters Great sweatshirt jacket, odd pocket design
I've worn this a few times now. I love the inner lining and the nylon lined sleeves (great for wearing long sleeved shirts underneath). I found the pockets to be placed oddly far to the side, and more importantly, they run flat against the bottom seam of the jacket instead of sloping down like most. The first time I put my phone in the pocket, it fell out (unbeknownst to me) while walking to the grill with dinner. I had to dig it out of the snow an hour later in the dark.

Sleeves are NOT lined. Cold arms. Otherwise OK.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mermaid9 Warm and Comfortable, but BIG
I bought this sweatshirt for my husband for a Christmas gift. I have two of the women's hoody sweatshirts that have the same kind of fleecy lining. I love my sweatshirts for their warmth and softness, so I decided to get one for my husband. He usually wears a Large in shirts, tees, and jackets, so that's what I ordered. It was HUGE!! I'm surprised that other reviewers in December did not mention the fact that these jackets run very big. I exchanged for a medium, and it fit my husband fine. He's happy with the warmth.

Rated 1 out of 5 by teenMom weird fit
Liked the feel of the item, but the bottom fit weird...like too baggy...almost like a "skirt." Uneven, too, shorter in back than front. Had to send back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Staywarm2014 Better than expected
Quite nice. Actually it's better than I expected. I am 6'2" 195 and the large tall fits perfectly. Still big enough for a long sleeve shirt underneath it. Very comfortable.

I purchased this for my husband, and I can see that this will be his new favorite. The fit is perfect.
