Rated 4 out of 5 by OptimisticPessimist Does not have chest pocket, otherwise great
I have used this jacket for both exercise, skiing, and sight seeing. I am very happy with the performance and the fit. I don't like things to fit too tight these days, so at 5'5" 120 lbs I bought the small and it has nice room without being huge. If someone my size wanted a truly athletic fit they should order an XS. BUT, my biggest problem is that it does NOT have a chest pocket as advertised. Inside the jacket on the back of each hand pocket is type of pocket that is open, more of a slip pocket. I need a secure zipped chest pocket for items that need to be kept safe. Already lost a credit card because I had to use the hand pockets. Will have to go back. I would love to purchase an LL Bean pro fleece soft shell with a true zipped chest pocket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ciara14 Excellent buy!
Bought this jacket as a Christmas present for myself, and I love it! It is perfect for running and cross country skiing, it blocks the wind while keeping you toasty warm. Also useful as a mid-weight layer under a shell for downhill skiing. Fits well with a merino wool base layer, moves well with activity. Worth every penny! I lov!e it

Rated 4 out of 5 by AdirondacksUpstateNY Not very warm but like the color
I love the vibrant green that this comes in. The fit is semi true to size. I am a medium, and the medium fits with a super thin shirt underneath. If you plan to wear a sweater or heavier shirt underneath, then I would order a size up. Overall really like this.

Definitely a different material than other L.L. Bean Fleeces. Thinner with tight, rough outside weave. Will have to see how it works out for the recipient of this gift. Color on web site is also way off, too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LikesOldStyleQualityBest Did not care for
Although the garment appeared to be well made, I didn't like it at all. The fabric for my taste and needs is terrible. It is sticky making it hard to wear over long sleeve clothing, not really all that warm, would easily snag, and not even nice looking in my opinion. I sent it back and am hoping that some of the more traditional fabrics will re-enter the clothing scene very soon! What ever happened to cotton, wool, nylon, or sherpa fleece even though more of a modern invention but still functional and nice looking and wears well. Even the more recent fleece fabrics are terrible and not for me. Sorry,

Rated 1 out of 5 by NewYorker5 Nothing like the Ascent Power Stretch Jacket!
I bought this because I thought it would be similar to the Ascent Power Stretch jacket -- which I LOVE, but is sold out. However this jacket is nothing like the Ascent Power Stretch jacket. The fleece seems thicker, but is not nearly as warm. This jacket also runs big. The Ascent jacket is better made, wind and water resistant, and the cut is much more flattering. Please note also that the blue color does NOT have the black trim that is shown on the website. It has no distinguishing trim at all, just kind of bland. The Ascent jacket in Algiers Blue is so much prettier. LLBEAN- PLEASE bring back the Ascent Power Stretch jacket in the Fall, in more colors!
