Rated 2 out of 5 by billyburgbuddy Not as good as it was
These used to be much better as recently as three years ago. You removed the piping from the edge of the neck which gave it a more refined look that also kept the edges from accumulating lint. You also removed the same from the cuffs and from the bottom as well. To me, this has removed a good portion of what was better than anyone else's fleece, alas.
You should ask why I have stopped buying so much from you dear Bean when not too long ago you suppled most of my clothing.
I should have stockpiled these as I luckily did with many of your older, far superior quality models.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Isthisneccesary Lousy Fit
Ordered a extra large. Way too small. Reordered a 2X and it was still tight, I normally wear a large! This item should never have been sold using this sizing description. Had to pay return shipping charges. So much for standing behind their product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by BroughtUpOnBean I like the slimmer fit
While I understand the frustration of others here, I for one like the slimmer fit of this "new version". I feel that it helps with layering and that I have a better range of motion with higher arm holes and longer sleeves. Fabric is thick and cozy and the snaps are nice change from the sea of zippers out there. I do agree that the "old logo" would be nice on this classic piece but not necessary. The bright navy is a nice year round color. This is a great multi-use piece a price far more reasonable that the other company with the mountain logo!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Profshopper Used to be Great
Have owned a couple of these over the years, decided it was time for a new one, same size XXL, arrived today, and it is way too small in the body, and arms, compared it to my old one and it is several inches smaller. Not sure what size chart the manufacturer is using? If you wear an XXL, it will not fit you.....

Rated 1 out of 5 by nochecero They ruined a great product
I have previously owned two of these, size extra large, and they fit perfectly. Just received this new version in the mail and just as other have stated the sizing on this has changed drastically; it is now too tight. My last one was just stolen this week so I've worn it a lot lately and could immediately feel/see the difference. Don't fix what isn't broken LL Bean.

by Cleburne Nice material but an oddly tight fit & long arms.
For every other LL Bean top I've purchased, I fit comfortably into a men's medium. However, I had to return the medium trail fleece pullover because it was too tight in the chest and shoulders. Reordered a large, fits better in the chest/shoulders, but now have to roll up the sleeves 4". Pattern based on an orangutan? So add a $20 tailoring bill to the price. OTOH, I like the warmth of Polartec 200 wt fleece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jlmiaa Wears like iron
I have owned one of these for 10 years or so, and while it is beginning to show it's age, it still has years of hard wear still in it. It's not fancy or fussy, but there is nothing I'd rather pull over my head on a damp, chilly day in the Shenandoah back country. I appreciate the traditional, roomy fit, and the zippered front pocket lies above my pack hip band, but below the shoulder straps. I pray L.L. Bean keeps stocking this, as I will want a replacement in a few years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by KeithInBoston Too bad about the sizing change
Received this as a holiday gift, but as others have mentioned, the construction has changed resulting in the sizing being completely different than before. New one is WAY too tight across the chest. Have three others from previous gifts, all in XXL that fit perfectly (they are my go-to casual warm tops) but this one will be going back. Why the change guys?

Rated 1 out of 5 by ilovemyoldfleece What happened?
I have had 2 of the 1/4 zip fleece pullovers for years and I loved them. I wanted to buy another. The new style is so much different, it's almost unwearable. I bought the same size as i had in the past and found it to be way too tight. I returned it and bought the next bigger size. This too was uncomfortably tight. The zipper, the elastic cuffs, and the fit of the old style were perfect.The new style has none of these. I will return the 2nd one I just bought and look elsewhere. In the meantime I will continue to wear my old ones and dream of days past.
