Rated 5 out of 5 by WarEagle86 Runs Big
I had been looking for a good wool sweater to wear under my jacket during duck season and this fit the bill. It's very warm (even when wet) and a bit scratchy but not too bad. The only downside is it runs big. I'm 6'2" 230 and the Large is too big for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dogwater Nice sweater- a bit wide
I'm 6' 4" 205 lbs..and just purchased the Waterfowl Sweater in Large-Tall.
The body and sleeve length are very good. Would do for someone 6' 3"-6'5".
However it is a bit wide. Maybe 2" on each side. This could not be worn under most jackets, it's too bulky. I guess it'll be the outer layer #with a windshell#.
Heavy, well-made. But not a luxurious wool.
Should be a very warm outdoor sweater.

This is a really high quality sweater. I am a US Army soldier and avid outdoor sports enthusiast, and these days its tough to find really good quality sweaters but this one is definitely worth the high price. Fits well with room for layering. Very warm.. could even be used in place of a jacket on some days. I wish L.L. Bean would make all of their clothing to this quality.. as they used to!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sherman9 Look at the review date! Not the same sweater now
I bought one of these in 2012 or so. I loved it!! Amazing wool. Generous cut -so much so I ordered a medium at 6'4" 210. I thought this summer I'll get the jump and order one now before they sell out. The 2014 version is NO WHERE near the same. First the material feels more like a heavy cotton and is not the rich wool it was. Second the sizing has changed and a medium now is about 3-4"smaller cut (I compared the 2012 to the 2014 side by side). I returned the 2014 version ~very disappointing. IT felt more like a mid level department store sweater and not the quality LL Bean product it once was. Sad. Why dont companies get it? You cant make things worse every year. Charge me a few bucks more and keep the quality!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ScottsReviews Excellent quality. Runs large.
As stated, this is an excellent quality sweater. I purchased a XXL tall, and it fit light a XXXL regular. I expected to squeeze into it and it fit perfectly, ...... lucky for me since it is not offered in a 3xl. Only wishing it was made in the U.S.A.!!!

Received the sweater and headed to Wisconsin with it. Very warm and comfortable. When i got home, I was glad I was wearing it because weather was cold and wet. Perfect sweater for the climate. Good fit and quality. The color matched the website.

This sweater will keep you warm. It's made from heavy wool, but it breathes enough to be comfortable when you are wearing it inside. It's cut loose to allow you to move. It is long and and goes below your waist. The collar stands up and covers your neck.
