Rated 4 out of 5áby BeansRegular Slim fitting fleece jacket
I bought this jacket in all three colors--the brown, blue, and purple. The fleece is a light to midweight fleece with a smooth outer and soft, low-pile fleecy inside. The zippers and the pockets and the curving seams all add to the curvy and feminine shape that this jacket creates.
I purchased all three in my usual size XS, and wear them only over thin LS baselayers. They do have a body-hugging fit, and many women may prefer to order up one size for a less clingy fit.
I have worn this jacket in the fall, but do not find it to be warm enough for a winter layer, unless I plan to snowshoe or cross-country ski with the jacket as an inner layer.
I did get them on sale and agree that the original price point is a bit high. Now that I have them, I really enjoy wearing them as long as it is not a bitter cold day.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Ride4TheBrand Casual comfort
Good quality cool weather jacket that provides warmth without bulk. The casual, fitted look is both comfortable & attractive. Reliable zippers & well-placed pockets.
Size: Runs small. I sized up 1 size for a comfortable fit over a lightweight layer. Arm & body length is perfect.
I chose both the blue & the brown, which are as pictured on website.
Wash/dry: Machine wash cold. I hang them to air dry. Fabric holds its shape well. No fading or shrinking.

Rated 2 out of 5áby sweatersavvy Unattractive jacket
I recently received this jacket in blue. As other reviewers noted, you should order a larger size for this to fit, and even then it will be form fitting. I usually take a large, as I am 5'8", 155 lbs., so I ordered an extra large and it still fit too closely. The shoulder seams seemed to have little peaks on them which is an unattractive feature. The fabric and lining looks cheap. This garment has none of the attractive features of the Mountain Laurel jackets in fleece that were sold last year and which I enjoy wearing.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Egbok Another really wonderful jacket
Great with jeans and great for travel. Based upon other reviews, I ordered one size larger, and it's just perfect. Nicely fitted and very feminine.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Gladdy Odd jacket
I bought in the ink blue color. The fabric is nice, but there are odd "crazy quilt" seams in the jacket, front and back, that serve no real purpose and don't lie flat because of the bulk of the fabric. The sleeves are very fitted. I have slender arms, but because the sleeves are fleece lined and snug, this jacket doesn't pull easily over a long sleeved T or a turtle neck. It has more the feeling of a wet-suit than a jacket. I'll return it.

Rated 4 out of 5áby LotsOfInterests So Good Except For One Thing
I found one of these in our local store, and it looked so nice (very well made) that I bought it, although it was borderline snug in large. After wearing it a little at home, I decided to order online and size up, which I recommend, unless you're a straighter shape. I got both the brown and the blue in XL, and they became immediate favorites. The jacket is flattering and very comfortable. Unfortunately, the fabric pills noticeably with washing. I wonder if it would do better if it were washed separately, and/or inside out. Best of all might be to dry clean it. Because I'm not the dry cleaning type, I reluctantly returned my jackets. If you don't mind extra care, I recommend this garment.

Rated 5 out of 5áby HHHappy Great look and fit!
I bought this in blue -- and liked the fabric, the quality of construction, and the great, flattering fit so much that I ordered a second one, in pink! It's SO nice to find something like this, with a femininely curvy fit, not "boxy". (I would love to see it in some other colors!)

Rated 5 out of 5áby tinaandlarafan Perfect tiny jacket!!
I am 5'3'' and 110 lbs. and petite and this jacket fits me like a glove! I ordered a PXS in the blue color. I have THE hardest time finding jackets that fit my tiny frame and this one is perfect! Also, it coordinates perfectly with my Mountain Laurel hooded jacket in the same blue color! They look so pretty together and keep me toasty warm! LOVE LOVE LOVE

Rated 5 out of 5áby WAtraveler Attractive and comfortable
The mountain laurel stretch fleece jacket has great style and is very good looking for both outdoor wear or casual. It will be a good travel jacket also as it is not bulky and will pack well. The fit is definitely "fitted" as per Bean' s item description. This is a quality item in both fabric and construction. I ordered my usual size medium and like the closer fit. If you want to layer more than a long sleeve tee you may wish to order up a size. I like this jacket well enough I may order another color. Black coffee is a good neutral and the print is very subdued.

Rated 5 out of 5áby CAblossom Excellent jacket, Order A Size Up
I normally wear a size M so that is what I purchased, luckily even though I am tall (5'9, 160lbs) I have a lean upper body so I was able to get away with the M and it helps that I tend to like fitted things (I think it is slenderizing), however I think the L would have been a good option as well. I got the ink blue color and I like the color and the subtle pattern. I haven't worn it in really cold weather yet, but I think it will be great on its own for weather in the 40s and 50s and really great under coats once the weather gets colder. I am really impressed by this jacket and really like that it isn't boxy and is more feminine and cute.
