Rated 3 out of 5 by BootsMom Pretty but not warm
This "fleece" is really more like a velour and not so warm as LL Bean fleece tops which I wear all winter long. Love the look, just may have to save it for a little warmer weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beansprout beautiful and soft
Fabric is so soft, like wearing a light fleece blanket. This is not a jacket, it is more of a fleece sweater type item. I would wear it as a layering piece-a turtleneck under it for cool weather, or a tank during fall/spring. If you are looking for more of a jacket or thicker fleece, probably go with the trail model ones instead. I think I would only buy this on sale.

I have the red and french blue colors. I love Bean's fleece tops, so it was nice to get something that isn't a solid color. It fells like the same weight as the 1/4 zip fitness fleece - own too many of these. Also, prints distract all the bulges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by recycler Perfect!
Reading the description immediately I knew it was LIGHT weight and LAYERING piece. Amazes me when buyers complain about what is stated! I LOVE this fleece and all LLBean fitness fleece that I own as it is easy to wear alone and layered without bulk under other garments. Red is perfect for the holidays (complimented yesterday) and into the fall when the Baseball Cardinals play into the fall season! Thank you LLBean for standing behind all your products (even the "what was I thinking" returns!) How about other small prints for future items? Thanks!

Rated 2 out of 5 by coldincalif Cheap thin fleece
I doubt this will last for any length of time. The sleeves are very long on it (at least two inches too long) and it has a tiny little zippered pocket on the sleeve that you could perhaps fit a solitary key into. I bought two of these, one in the navy blue and one in the lighter shade of polka dot blue.
There is no difference between the two and as I state in my review title, the fleece is very thin and I really doubt this will last for any length of time.
Not sure what to do with these other than return them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LMSWCASAC Polka Dot so cute
I have a ton of fleece jackets & vests in an assortment of colors and styles. BTW: I think the red will be just right around the house at Christmas time. The reviewers write that the fabric is thin and like pajama material. Correct. I will wear mine for lounging. I have the LLBean Fleece PJ's in Elderberry and in Forest Green. I mention this because the fabric is similar to this item. I'm particular about clothes and always want to look my best but comfort rates. I recently hosted a brunch for my friends and wore a pair of the PJ's. No one suspected (I asked). If you have a polka dot fleece and you like the look and feel of it, try wearing it as an alternative to a jacket over a white tee. "When you get a lemon, make lemonade".

Rated 5 out of 5 by susj Great indoor layer
I just received my red polka dot fitness fleece, and I absolutely love it! Other reviewers complained about how thin the fabric was, but that is exactly what a wanted - a nice, lightweight "indoor" layer. It is perfect for that purpose.

Unfortunately, the navy blue is very light colored, although it did say "deep" - and the quality of the fleece reminds me of pyjamas fleece - it actually looks more like flannel.
Having said that, I still hope that there will be another design which suits my taste for crisp looking fleece patterns better in future:

Rated 3 out of 5 by Meadowsweet Thin fabric with little or no warmth.
I bought this on sale and still returned it because the fabric was so very thin.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BranchStreet Sheds terribly after washing
I'm returning this item. After the first wash, it shed all over my LL Bean knit shirt. I was shocked...not typical LL quality.
