Rated 4 out of 5 by PetiteVAShopper Nice, but bring back the Trail Model Pullover !!!
I have this jacket and it's very nice. But I REALLY wanted more of the Trail Model Fleece PULLOVER. I request these every year for Christmas gifts from family, but they are no longer available. I don't need any more jackets. But I wear the pullovers every day. The fitness fleece are just not warm enough.

I have had a precious style of this fleece for nearly 10 years. It is warm and the only one that covers below the waist. I have wanted to purchase a new one since last winter but the color selection is awful! Pale Straw is the oddest shade of burnt sunflower mixed with a dull glowing shade of green. I wish LLBEAN would bring back an off-white shade.

Rated 4 out of 5 by destiner Great fleece
I am very picky about fleece -- this Polartec 200 meets my stringent standards! It is soft...very soft. Not at all sticky feeling or clingy or reminiscent of plastic. Great fabric -- really love it.
I would suggest a few small tweaks to the design of this jacket. I'd like it to be about 2 inches longer -- I'd love to see the awkward plastic bungee cord adjusters at the waistline be improved to be less visible and clunky. And, for vanity's sake, I would prefer not to have my size emblazoned at the neckline in a tagless imprint that can't be hidden.
Other than that, I absolutely love this jacket and know I'll wear it for years to come.

I bought the grey. I love love love this jacket. True to size, i bought a large to give me just a little extra for layers, i usually wear a med/large. love the drawstring waist, the longer length and the hood.
i have worn one of my other Bean fleeces under a rain jacket and that works really well for warmth and dryness.
A real winner, oh and washes well too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HermitLady The best one yet!
I have had a few other polartec jackets and parkas, but just have to say this is the best by far. It's probably the love-at-first-sight Cayenne color. But it feels as if this parka is a bit softer and thicker, therefore warmer, than any others I've had. They say it's their "classic" and true, it's nothing new in style or cut, but how can you improve upon perfection? I ADORE this parka! It's just enough longer than a jacket to keep one's lower quarters nice and cozy.
It works well with classic style clothes, even dresses, but also more outdoorsy things. With the color selection, well, buy more than one if you can, but even with one in "your color" it will take you through a long season of all sorts of activities. Can you tell I love it? Picky me. You need one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by onallerazil0887 Great Jacket, Not so great color
I love this jacket. It is warm and the quality I've come to expect from LL Bean. However, there is a huge issue with the color for me. I ordered the orangeish color because it looked like a little bit of a pale tangerine color. I recieved the jacket, it is hunter's orange, like the color of hunting gear. Wasn't expecting that! Over all great jacket though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MNshopper1 Finally found it!
I have been looking for years for a fleece jacket that was longer and this is it. I have several fleece coats but they hit at the waist and when I wore a longer sweater to work they hung below the jacket and looked messy. Pockets inside and outside, drawstring waist and it covers your bottom - perfect. I would suggest to L. L. Bean to add a drawstring in the hood for those really windy days but for right now I will wrap a big cowl around my neck and keep it in place that way.

I just received this yesterday, so I don't know if it's warm yet or not, but the color is beautiful. Its purple..nice and deep. But my complaint is this, as it is with all LL Bean women's coats..if you are purchasing an item in size 3x, it's safe to say that you are not thin. Why is it the sleeves seem very fitted, and the bottom of coats aren't wider? Most "normal" women have hips, they are not straight boxes. This is the reason I purchased this jacket, I figured with fleece, I may be safe because it stretches a bit. I was right, but barely.

Rated 1 out of 5 by xyzrider Very small
I ordered larger than I would normally wear to be able to layer clothes underneath. Even a 2X was "tiny". There is no way to wear layers under this jacket. And certainly no woman wearing a 2X would even fit in this jacket. Very disappointed in LL Bean's sizing. Several garments that I have ordered have gone back to them recently because is "shrinking" cut of the material used. If LL Bean wants to keep their customers and actually sell items they need to address why the sizing is so far off from what it used to be. I have jackets from 20 years ago from them and they were generously cut. I guess I will still be wearing those until they make the new ones decently sized. SERIOUSLY LLBEAN, LOOK AT WHAT YOU MAKE- TRY IT ON REAL PEOPLE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Casper123 Warmest and most comfortable coat
I bought two for me. Though I wear a 2x in tee shirts at LLBean,
I wore a 1x in this coat. It is warm and lightweight. I bought one
for my niece also. You will love this coat with the adjustable
inside waist also.
