Rated 1 out of 5 by Dan504 Too Tight
I wear an XXL in most LL Bean items so I ordered an XXL in the Trail Model Fleece Pullover. Wow was it tight. I felt like a sardine. Although the product looked and felt great, it was simply cut way too tight. Good thing LL Bean has such easy return policies.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CvilleSam Well Made, Horrible Sizing
I received the fleece today and will be sending it back tomorrow! I definitely should have listened to the other reviews. Although the quality of the fleece seems good and it is quite attractive, there is no possible way that the sizing is correct. I have quite a number of Bean jackets & shirts all all are Large and all fit very well. As some other reviews state, this one is tight in the body and very long in the sleeves. Given this sizing there is no possible way that I can order one that fits - an XL that fits in the body would be beyond my fingers in sleeve length. I am very disappointed in this product for now, but would be happy to purchase one if the old sizing returned.

Item is missized. I wear an XL but ordered an xxl for extra room. It had to be 2 sizes too small. Could barely get it over my head. Forget about layering.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KeithBoston Same, but different
Slightly less roomy than the previous models I had purchased, and now the company logo has moved from a benign location at the waist (on previous items) to the upper left breast area. It is in the same color thread as the fleece, but still there and visible. Don't like logos on my clothing - just a personal preference.

Rated 2 out of 5 by madcitymama Tight through body
We bought a Tall Large to replace an LL Bean fleece my husband lost at the airport. He wears a Tall Large in LL Bean's flannel shirts, so that's what we ordered in the fleece. The fit was terrible: tight through the body and really long, baggy arms. Not the comfy, more boxy fleece from a few years ago. We returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Benner good light fleece for athletic body types
I really like this fleece as a basic, midweight pullover. I was surprised at how well it fits - it has a snugger, more athletic fit than LLB's usual. The fleece is midweight with no windproof membrane (what do you expect at this price?). I got this in lieu of a well-known, retro-styled, overpriced fleece pullover from a big name brand. I prefer this one because it has better pockets, the fit is more functional and flattering, and I can actually push the sleeves up to my elbows.
I only wish LLB offered more color options with the contrasting placket and zippers. In my opinion, the bright navy heather version I bought is definitely the best of the available color options because of the contrast details.

Rated 4 out of 5 by StuffedDuck Bring back the old one!
I love the Trail Model Fleece Pullover. It's unbelievably soft, functional, lasts forever, and has classic styling. But please LLBean, bring back the elasticized cuffs and hem!

Rated 5 out of 5 by peppysfriend LOVE this fleece fabric!
This is the quality fabric I wanted! Superior polarfleece: thick, plush, snuggly (yes, I am a female buying these for myself to wear). I have long arms and these sleeves are plenty long (one of the reasons I buy mens items), I would love an elastic opening here, personally. I don't care for elastic at the hip opening, but I can adjust it so it hangs loose and straight, so no foul. I am 5' 9" and 140 lbs., I'm keeping the small size which is generous in length, both body and sleeves. It does seem to be more of a slim cut which works for me, but I don't think my husband would be as comfortable with this cut. I love the zippered kangaroo pocket, would like a zip neck more than snaps, but these work fine. KEEP MAKING CLOTHING WITH THIS QUALITY FLEECE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LouisvilleDave Perfect for crisp spring or fall
I bought the Trail Model Fleece Pullover to replace my two-decades-old polar fleece pullover. This was exactly what I was hopping for -- pullover design with zippered pouch/pocket in front. It is great to keep you warm on cool crisp spring or fall mornings, and makes a great layer underneath a lightweight rain jacket.
