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!

The good, this is the warmest fleece jacket I've ever owned.
The Bad, at least as far as this particular jacket goes is that it sheds yellow fleece-bunnies. I haven't washed it yet and am afraid to because I don't know how much more of the material is going to shed but it leaves a trail of yellow fleece on everything it touches, couch, car seats, seat belts, bed, snow....This is my first LL Bean fleece and the first time I've seen this. Although it is the warmest fleece I've owned, I don't like having to carry a lint roller everywhere to remove the bunnies. Also not sure how it will hold up if the material is falling out. A bit disappointed but will try another just to see, maybe I got a bad one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Scmed bad fitting
Im usually a medium to large. I bought the large. Could hardly get it on. Under the arms is just way too tight. I sent back the large and got an xtra large, still tight in the arm pit area but slightly better. Now the sleeves are two inches too long so I roll them up. Just a tight, poor fitting job they've done with this. Funny, when it comes to quality of workmanship on clothing I have found made in the USA always is best. This is a fit issue this time not related to quality necessarily.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 55plusshopperca Nice jacket but small
This jacket was purchased as a Christmas gift for my husband. I purchase from LLBean often for him. The quality was nice but unfortunately, this jacket was too small - very snug fit. The size I ordered was XXL Tall - his usual size. The sleeves were ok length, the body was snug. And the length was also short, for a tall. It fit like a regular XL. Had to return. Hope LLBean will continue to make larger, taller sizes

Rated 2 out of 5 by remdoc3 DISAPPOINTED IN JACKET
Disappointed in this jacket. Ordered size xxl and the sleeves are two inches longer than comparable xxl jackets. So difficult to put on over a sweat shirt. Material acts like it is velcro and wants to stick to cotton and not slide. Probably the worst thing from LLBean in my 67 years.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DlgDan nice fleece but cut a little odd
My wife bought me this in medium. I'm 5'8" 155lbs and LL Bean has usually fit me well. The first one felt tight around my right shoulder and armpit, like it was about 1/2-1 inch too small in the upper sleeve or the back piece. After trying it for a few days I decided the tight feel was very annoying and sent it back assuming it was a production variation. Sadly the second fleece has the same problem. Trying to decide if I should try a size large or go to brand X. Otherwise the fleece has a very nice feel and is about the weight I want for chilly mornings in the house or under a jacket for walking the dog on a colder day. And I have had good durability from LL Bean products. I would only recommend to a friend with the warning of my fit concerns. Think I'll try a large.

Rated 4 out of 5 by scarletkr Pls bring back Spruce Heather
This is a fantastic, warm jacket that isn't too heavy and looks fantastic on my husband, the only thing I'm sorry for is I can't buy a small in Spruce Heather, for myself! That is the best color LL Bean has ever come up with, I hope you manufacture it again...

Rated 1 out of 5 by Brierpatch1 Way Too Small & Too Short!!!
I have purchased and worn XLT size LL Bean shirts, vests, and other clothing for years. I still wear them and prefer them to other brands. So, I was very excited to receive this beautiful fleece jacket for Christmas.
I was dismayed to find that it didn't come anywhere near fitting! In discussing this with customer service they suggested that I try the next larger size. I did. It came and was only marginally larger and was still too tight and too short.

Rated 4 out of 5 by xcsteve LLBean-Still bringing it !
I find the fit (medium) to be good for me but I'm built like a world class marathoner (6'2" 150lbs.) I'm really glad LL Bean brought back the heather color for trail model fleece as it doesn't show lint. I never buy fleece in black or navy for this reason. I don't like the elastic cord in the waistline. It won't last. Would much prefer one made from flat tape that pulls from both sides. I'd also like to see piping on the sleeve ends and around the collar come back, it would give it a classier look. Overall, I like the clean design and understated look of this fleece.
