Rated 3 out of 5 by Bettina Not what I expected
This sounded good since I am always cold. The outside layer looked like insulated underwear. The mallard blue color was not flattering for a female. The pouch pockets were so shallow they would not have held keys or a phone safely or even your hands to keep warm. I was sorry to return since I am a great fan and frequent buyer at LLBean.

I absolutely LOVE this sweatshirt! I've been wearing it every change possible since receiving it--indoors, outdoors, with jeans, with PJs, with yoga pants--everything. I have it on right now actually--lol.
This is seriously the softest lining against the skin! It's like having a super plush stuffed animal against you.
I personally ordered a size up for a very relaxed fit--and it's plenty roomy. For a more streamlined fit, order your regular size. I have the dark blue, and am considering the coral as well.
My only complaint is that I wish it were an inch or two longer. Oh, and don't put much in the shallow pockets. But these are both minor considering how super soft and comfortable this sweatshirt is. Highly recommend!

This is a really nice top. I almost gave it four stars because I found it has a boxy, unflattering fit, there is no plush fleece inside the arms-only the chest and back region, and I wish it had a two-way zipper. But I gave it five star because, yes, it's more of a sweatshirt feel, so of course it's going to have a boxier, more masculine fit. It is super comfy, washes and dries well, and is made well. The zipper is pretty heavy duty. FYI, the celedron color on my computer screen looked oatmealish in color, but when I received it, it was actually more of a celery green color.

Love the material of this hoodie inside and out. The coral color is bright but yet soft. I usually wear small petite (124 lb). This was not offered in petite yet the regular small fits well with room to wear heavier tops underneath. This will be a 3 season staple. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2casual4nyc Coral is great color
I normally wear a petite small and the small fits me perfectly with a little extra room, and I am 5 ft. tall. The coral color is beautiful, and it will be perfect for spring (that's if it doesn't go from polar vortex to hot and humid in one week where I live). I have the other fleece-lined hoodie that LL Bean makes, the one that is more of a traditional sweatshirt material, and this one is a lighter weight. They both are good jackets, but the lighter weight of this one will make it more suitable for warmer weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PattyM This is the best transition sweatshirt
Love this. the color and fit are perfect. I ordered a large so I could layer more but my usual size of medium would have been fine. The weaving is a nice change from a bland fabric and the warmth is perfect for spring.

Rated 3 out of 5 by upstateabba Ture to size, didn't like material
I'm 5'8", 122 pounds, and ordered my usual size Small. It fit well, but seemed more lightweight than the kids' fleece-lined hoodies we have purchased and loved. I have to agree with another reviewer that the waffle texture somehow made it look a little cheap. Also, the zipper stop was on the wrong side of the placket, which made it seem awkward to use. Although I purchased it at a deep discount as a daily markdown, I'm returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Silvercoupe40 I love this hoodie!!!
I just received my fleece-lined waffle hoodie and do I LOVE it. It's true-to-size and is so warm and comfortable. I would recommend this jacket to anyone. I've never seen a hoodie made from the waffle material before and it's very pretty. The sleeves are nice and long and it has a metal zipper rather than a flimsy plastic one. As usual, LL Bean comes through again.

Just received and am now wearing. Very soft! Lovely textures inside and out. The green is a great colour. Medium is true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sapl Great Hoodie
I'm very happy with this hoodie. I ordered the mallard blue in an xs and I love the color and the fit. I've had some issues with the sizing since LLBean changed their sizing but this is a true xs and fits me great! I live in middle Georgia and the weight of the fabric is just right for the winter weather we have here. I especially like the waffle knit fabric! I might order another one next year in a different color.
