Rated 5 out of 5 by Adventurephiles Love this fleece
I was a little concerned about sizing, given the reviews, but went with my LL Bean product experience and still bought the small. I am 5'7" and my bust size is 36 D/DD, waist 30. The fit is perfect. The fleece is so soft, like my others. I have washed it and it comes out beautifully. All I do is travel and so this gets fairly abused but still looks brand new after months in Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, France, Czech Republic. Would definitely buy another.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LLBean9999 Workmanship poor, fit terrible
I had read all the reviews about this product and the good seemed to outweigh the negative. But the reviews on the negative side I found true. The cut and fit of the jacket as too large across the bust. The sleeves were too long and the zipper on one side of the pockets I could hardly zip because the seams were sewn too close. I am really disappointed at the overall quality of this product. I have been an LL Bean customer for many years and this is the worst product I have ordered. I have second thoughts now about the merchandise.

by HarpLadyDiane Too big in the chest
I wear a Medium in all LLBean tops. I ordered this jacket in both teal and grey. Both jackets are plenty long in the arms and fit nicely everywhere except the chest. The chest is way out of proportion to the rest of the jacket. Every part of the jacket is a medium, but the chest has so much extra material that it might fit a DD bra size woman. I like both jackets so much that I am going to see if I can take in the chest so it will be in proportion to the rest of the jacket which fits great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by curlyturtle Nice lightweight jacket
The fleece is lighter in weight and thickness than I expected for a "warm" jacket, however I have not worn it outdoors in cooler weather yet to test that out. I am 5'3", 120# and size M Regular fits perfectly. It is just a little baggy in the front but with the zipper open, it looks very cute and stylish. It is not cut boxy like a man's jacket. I wanted this jacket because it is water repellent and it rains a lot where I live. Overall I am pleased with this jacket and will probably order another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trentaluski Comfortable, warm and well made
I bought the teal green and love the color. The material is soft, warm and cozy. There are pockets on the inside and outside which are very helpful. I would definitely recommend this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by whiteking Perfect "go to" jacket
This was an accidental find. No matter what the season, I tend to be cold here in CT. But who wants to wear a winter coat in June!?
When I spotted this jacket, I knew it would work all year round. It also is lovely grey-- perfect for those of us who have kitties! I am slim and tall (5'11"); the large fits perfectly and is cozy soft!! Thank you Mr. Bean!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by NWestGal Bit too snug with sagging bust
I recently ordered this jacket in 2X, instead of the Comfort Fleece I usually buy, because I wanted a warmer color choice. I knew it would be heavier fabric, which is more suitable for outdoors. But the arms and body are noticeably tighter than the other model. I worry about getting it over my autumn turtlenecks. And I agree, the fitted bust is 1-2 inches lower than it should be. Otherwise, it is nicely made and I love the burnt orange color, which will be useful for fall travel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beansandrice Fantastic fleece!
I saw this on one of my friends; went right to llbean online and got myself one in purple. Now my friend wants one like mine! Need I say more. I wear this around the house on chilly mornings. Great buy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by tauntonshopper Nice & warm!
Love the fleece jacket overall, esp like the zippered pockets. Sleeves are a bit long, rolling them up doesn't look bad. The size I ordered is slightly larger that what I wear so I am a little disappointed that the fleece isn't any roomier than it is. The width in the sleeves is a "just fit", so won't be able to "layer" under it at all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by girlengineer Bust seams disproportionly low
I ordered this jacket in the lovely hard to find forest fern color and really looked forward to its arrival. I ordered it specifically because it appeared semi-fitted (princess seams), making it warmer and better for layering than a loose fitting jacket.
I ordered a small. The fit was much larger in the bust and midsection than I'd expect from a small (4-5", I'm usually between a small and medium), and weirdly, the princess bust-seams are about 2-3" too low and look obviously out of place, yet the overall length is as expected. I'm 5'6, 130 lbs, 51 years old and a 34 C. I'm not petite, short or "perky". This is just an odd cut jacket for anyone other than a barrel torso-ed woman who doesn't mind mis-located princess seams competing for attention with her actual bust line.
