Rated 4 out of 5 by HappilyRetired2 Runs a little small
I usually wear a medium, but ordered both the medium and large in this fleece just in case. The medium is a little snug with a sweater under it, but the large is way too big with only a single layer. Fortunately the fabric is a little stretchy, so I think I'll keep the medium, even tho it's a little shorter than I would have liked. It's been hard to find a fleece zip hoodie, and the sale price was right.
The fabric feels soft and I haven't noticed any shedding as some other reviewers mentioned. However, it hasn't been washed yet. I hope it doesn't shrink!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hedges It pills like mad
This is my second review of this product as the first one I wrote
Seems to have been removed. It pills like MAD! The entire inside of jacket and pockets are covered with pills and it ALSO pills under the arms.

Rated 3 out of 5 by cjinco Zippers inferior quality
I love these zippered fleeces. I have two and requesed one for Christmas. The problem is the zippers. They do not hold up. Both of the two I have have broken. I will be returning them. I love this fleece so much I wanted another and will wear it until the zipper breaks. Please, please put a stronger zipper in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JBinNorthwesternPA Nice jacket, but I like Beans older fleece
I like my comfort fleece jacket and it takes the chill off. Looks good with jeans. No complaints about fit (small). However I must say I miss the fleece LL Bean offered years ago. It was much more substantial than anything they offer now. I wish they'd bring this thicker and denser fleece back. I paid more for it then, but I got what I paid for...just like this comfort fleece stuff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LinKr Soft jacket
This is a nice jacket. Not as substantial as you'd think though. It is more like a hoodie or lightweight fleece. Fleece is soft, but not very thick. Nice to wear on a 55 or 60 degree day, or around the house. Zipper is very cheapy though. Has not broken yet, but very fragile. I would recommend it for about a 60 degree day, or around the house. It is nice for around the house in the winter. To wear like a regular hoodie

Rated 5 out of 5 by grayhairedyoungun so snuggly warm!
I love this jacket! I feel like I'm wrapped up in a warm polartec blanket. I wear this around the house more than when I'm outside. I call it my pink marshmallow jacket because it looks fluffy and feels warm. Now I can't wear this outside on brisk windy days as the wind goes right through it, but it is one of my favorite Fall garments.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NBBeanFan Disappointed in quality
I've been buying comfort fleece for many years but have found the quality has gone downhill. While the jacket is warm and soft, it's not as substantial as the comfort fleece used to be and it sheds like crazy and you end up covered with fluff, especially when you're wearing cords or carrying a shoulder bag that has any texture.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AZArtiste Falls at whose hip?
I really want to order this jacket, but I am long-waisted, and my hip is not where LL Bean seems to think it is. Most of their tops are very short on me. I read a bunch of reviews, and no one mentioned that it was too long on them, which is a good indicator that it would be fine on me. I have quit ordering tops from Bean unless they say "Falls below hip". You'd think, in this era of pants that cause mooning when bending over, that tops would be longer. Most companies are making them longer. Not Bean. At least Bean is making pants with a longer rise again!! Please give the length of the item in a medium size, instead of saying "Falls at hip", which is absolutely meaningless to a short or long-waisted person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LadyHiker101 Comfortable, beautiful quality
I grab one of these hoodies for evening walks in the fog. They look so feminine and are made so beautifully, that I look like a nicely dressed lady, not like I'm wearing my 21 year old son's hoodie. Oh, his girl friend borrowed one of mine to wear one evening. Now she has two off her own and loves to wear them in the fog as much as I do. They are perfect for walks on the beach with the waves crashing and the spray flying--so I'm told. : )
