Rated 5 out of 5 by RennieMac My Son LIVES in This Shirt
My son had one of these last year and wore it all the time. When I tried to order another, they were out of stock. We were happy to see it was back this season! We bought the blue version a few months ago and he has been wearing it non-stop. Just ordered another in red.
Unlike some other reviewers -- we think the hood makes this shirt. I believe there is a normal flannel lined shirt without a hood, for those of you who wondered why there was a hood. My son super likes the hood. PLEASE keep the hood. And keep making this shirt/jacket, LLBean!

Rated 2 out of 5 by JanL51 Sleeves ripped in record time
I bought this shirt for my grandson last winter. He loved it because it was similar to one I had bought for his dad (he did not like the hood though). In a matter of weeks, both elbows had ripped to shreds. It was almost as if the fabric was dry rotted or something. This was beyond "normal wear and tear". I sent it back. I read another review that mentioned the ripping as well. I would love to get another one, but am afraid the quality would still be the same.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PlaidBuyer Why the hood?
My son has lived in versions of this shirt for the last 3 winters (they are fantastic BTW). He asked this morning if I could get him another but I'm not loving the hood for school. Is there a collared version?

Rated 5 out of 5 by nataliewb He Won't Take it Off!
I bought one of these last year in a blue/grey plaid, and my 12 yo wore it constantly, even when it was pretty warm out. Now he has outgrown it, and the sleeve ripped (from wear), so we need to get a new one. I am thinking about getting two, since he loved it so much. These are warm, comfortable, and perfect for a cool fall or spring day as an outer layer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PatsyEddie Where have these gone?!
I own two of these and my daughter (12) one. I have been trying since last year to get one for my son (10), but there is only 1 boys size available (8). No men's small or extra small. I had to get my daughter a women's extra small last summer because there were no girl's sizes. Now there are no women's or girl's sizes at all. Why aren't they available? Such a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Arbie Comfort to the max!
My son loves this shirt because it is so warm and comfortable. The hood gives it that cool surfer look he likes! Wonderful job LLBean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by HipHoppinMom Great Hoodie! Wears well and washes well.
I bought these for my sons a few months ago, primarily for camping. They love them and wear them all the time. They are decent quality, comfortable, wear well and wash well. My 11 year old will likely only be able to wear the Medium for 1 year however, and he is very slim. I suspect the med would not fit a husky 11 or 12 year old. My only complaint is I would like to see more inventory on the blue - the large size sold out very fast. I will buy these again as they grow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lumberjohn Boys love them
I bought these for my boys, size 8 for the 6-1/2 year old and 10/12 for my 9-1/2 year old. They wear these layered over their other shirts as a shirt-jacket and if it gets colder under a heavy coat. they love these shirts looks and comfort and wear them all the time. Great buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by danathuck Great use as a jacket
My son is 10, average to small for his age. I got the medium, it's a little big, but he will grow into it. He will NOT wear a coat, fortunately, we live in North Texas, so the cold cold days don't last long. He will wear layers, a t-shirt with a flannel shirt, so this is a great addition on those cold days. He loves it. Great quality. If the price was lower I would have given an "excellent" rating. But with kids, they outgrow clothing so fast, so I wish the price was around $25-30 (no more than $30) to be more affordable, especially when you may only get one season out of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeansMommy Great Shirt
This shirt is made from three of my son's favorite LLBean fabrics so how could it not be one of his favorites? It looks great on him too and it is very warm.
