Rated 3 out of 5 by ShopperBob Should have listened to the Reviews
Really nice quality jacket but the fit is small. Narrow arms, narrow chest. Feels short on length at the waist. Buy one size larger. Which I did but it still feels small. They say its traditional fit. Its more like an athletic fit. All I can wear under it is a T Shirt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gjinny Very good buy
Well made and warm and a good deal.
The medium is a little bigger then they used to be so it's not as form fitting as I would prefer but stii ok

As others have said, the sleeves of this jacket are way too tight. The chest is also too narrow, and there is no elastic in the cuffs.
I was looking for a light fleece to wear around the house, and if it were not for the poor fit this would have done it. I just don't understand why Bean does not fix the fit, given all the negative reviews.

This fleece jacket is just what I'm looking for. It's warm, stuffs down small and can be used with a rain parka in very windy or rainy conditions. Not many manufacturers sell fleece jackets in Tall sizes, especially at this price point. Very versatile and well thought out design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AJSF Great jacket
I love the jacket -- so much so that I bought a second. It's comfortable and fits exceptionally well (which means it has a slight athletic cut). I was worried that the sleeves might become baggy because they lacked elastic, but that has not been the case (and actually the lack of elastic has been a benefit, since it makes it easier to allow the sleeves to be folded back slightly when needed). The blue is a great, fun color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Leopold72 Great Jacket But..........
I would have given this Jacket 5 STARS except that the sleeves
are 2" to long. This has never happened before and I have bought
more than a dozen jackets over the years from LL Bean. All the
rest were outstanding.

Dear LL Bean,
As always, I am so very, very pleased with this jacket. It will be a Birthday gift for my husband - and so very nice for that extra warmth on cool summer nights when we travel "Up North" to visit family and friends. He always goes to a warm plaid fleece jacket that looks too wintery but tells me he wants to wear it for it's warmth. This will be a perfect solution....can wear with shorts and longer pants and chase away the chill but look good. Thanks so much!

I bought this item to mail to my friend in Philippines. After the hot summer ends there in June, cool nights return. The fleece will be comfortable to wear during PM hours and during excursions in the nearby mountains. Bean conquers cool in Philippines!

Rated 4 out of 5 by RozyMN Nice Jacket Runs Small
Finally replacing my 20+ year old LL Bean fleece jacket with the new model. One thing that I appreciate about the LL Bean products is that the sizing runs true. Not so with this product. While I take an XL in all other LL Bean products (shirts, coats), this product runs small. I am in the processing of exchanging for the next size up.
Quality of product is very good,

~~ My husband has one of these fleece from 6+ years ago, and loves it!! This one, same name but different fit. His did not have the napoleon pocket. This is going back, definitely DO NOT like this style.
