Rated 3 out of 5 by deh2207 Problem fit over long-sleeve shirts
This is a nice fleece jacket unless worn over long-sleeve shirts. The fleece sticks to long-sleeves and "bunches up." The fleece material snags shirt sleeves. The resulting fit tends to look messy.
The jacket really needs to be redesigned with a thin lining to enhance the fit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PaulTLLBean Too Tight Under The Arms
Looked well made and felt comfortable, but too tight under the arms. I ordered a large which usually is ok on me for most shirts and jackets. I'd say this is a slim fit vs traditional. Getting the size up would result in a jacket too long. Returned it.

Bought this in an Bean Store somewhere around Bergan County, NJ almost 2 years ago. I live in California on the Central Coast not on the East Coast. I purchased a Men's Regular Large in Bright Navy Blue. I wear about a 43 size coat and usually large shirts if not too full. I am 5'10' and weigh in at about 170 lbs. This fits very well with enough room to put on over a long sleeve shirt or light sweatshirt. The color is a very bright blue--not navy. I like the fit, and the colors. It has zippers on two outside pockets, and one left chest pocket. Cell phones, glasses, etc. will not fall out. There are also two inside pockets-left and right, approximately 7" wide by 9" deep #tall#, no zippers. This is full zip with nylon teeth and metal zipper. Nice collar and thankfully no hoody. It is fairly warm and great in 55 to 70 degree weather just over a shirt or T-shirt. I take it off at about 74 degrees as it gets a little warm. It goes through my clothes washer and dryer very well and retains its shape. The sleeves are about 44" and could be cuffed if necessary--probably not by LLBean. I think I will purchase another as it is a great, light weight jacket and my wife likes it--very important!

Rated 4 out of 5 by PlayByEar Nice Jacket
This jacket is warm and lightweight. I looked and read all the reviews and was amazed at all the comments about going a size larger. I did go up one size and I am sure glad I did. Going my regular extra large would have been too small and I like a little extra room. DOUBLE XXL worked fine. Also the sleeve length is longer than I like, but nothing I cannot resolve. I like the breathability and easy care. This jacket overall is a winner.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 2Beangirls Sleeves too long
Surprised to find the sleeves way too long in the tall size. Fortunately the regular XXL fit fine in the sleeve length, but not sure how they would fit those who normally take a regular size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chimneyrock Sizing issues
I have old and new versions of this jacket, and the newer version is not sized like the old ones. My older jackets were sized Large, and there was room to spare. After reading reviews, I decided to order an Extra Large, just to be safe, and I'm glad I did. Even the XL is a bit snug, but it will work. Also, the sleeves are much too long and there is no longer elastic in the cuffs, as in the older models. Other than the sizing issues, the jacket seems to be well made.

- Good, basic overall design and color
- Good zippers, pockets
- ZERO wind blocking ability
This is good for wearing around the house on a cold day, that's about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HSPR Comfortable and warm
A great fleece jacket, whose fit has improved since the last version I purchased. The sleeves are a little more generous in width, as is the length of the jacket. It is very warm and comfortable, and perfect for cooler spring and fall days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HL47 LOVE this fleece jacket
My husband wore his trusty LL Bean fleece jacket for many years until he accidentally burned it. This is an excellent replacement. I love the extra chest pocket and the softer feel. It is the same quality Bean construction. The loden color is beautiful and more subtle than the classic pine green. It is like wearing gray and green at the same time. I ordered it on a Friday and it was delivered on Monday. Kudos LL Bean!
