Rated 2 out of 5 by TimothyT from odd smell Bought a sweater fleece at your flagship store in Freeport recently. Got it home, took it out of the bag and it had a smell we didn't notice at the store, a burning match sulfury smell. Tried airing it outdoors, washed it in a hunter's de-scent detergent with no success. Loved the fit, style and color and warmth but the odor was a no go. Returned it for a refund and noticed that all the sweater fleeces in the store had the same odor. My wife and a friend also detected the odor. Seems to increase as your body heat warms the garment. Incomplete chemical reaction in the production of the fabric? Solve the problem and I will surely buy another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cloverplank from Super well made - lovely fit I don't know what they did with theses fleece jackets but the fit is fabulous. Doesn't look baggy - actually makes you look thinner. And fantastic quality - very dense but not overly hot. Good pockets too. I bought one and then bought 3 more for me and 2 for husband. They are my "go to" fleece and they are nice enough wear to a casual restaurant. I like my jackets to have elastic cuffs so I brought these to my tailor and he easily put elastic at the cuffs - just in case others want to do the same it is super easy to do. They also wash up beautifully. I rarely write reviews but these fleece jackets are superb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheFamousMockingbird from Comfy, warm, durable, USEFUL It fits me perfectly, but that's not grounds to say a product is good or bad. What makes this great for me is that it can be worn casually around but is still fit for backcountry use. It's very warm for its weight and thickness, is not windproof but it doesn't claim to be. The pockets and zippers are all very easy to use and access. Also, as any good fleece should, it performs very well when wet. As a cherry on top it doesn't get all pulled and messed up in the wash (I don't put it through the drier). I've owned this product for a few months and taken it on multiple camping trips where it served as my primary warm layer. It shows no signs of wearing and I plan on getting a lot more mileage out of my new favorite fleece.

Rated 4 out of 5 by paul160 from Perfect... except I agree with many other reviewers about the high quality of this lovely jacket. The colors are also beautiful. However, I was initially confused when I put it on because the back is longer than the front. I thought it was a mistake. I see now that is by design and called "drop tail" hemming. I see no advantage to this design for an outwear product and frankly, if you have any kind of belly (like me), it is not flattering. I would feel much better were this a straight hem. I will keep the jacket, as I love the feel of it and plan to wear it mostly around the house this winter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sully505 from Comfortable, fits great...but funny smell So I ordered this after seeing a relative with a similar one. I'm about 6'2" and beefy so I went with the Tall XXL. If anything its a little big on me. I can easily fit a thick sweater underneath and the sleeves are just on the edge of being too long...but I like them like that. My only complaint is when I opened it, it had and has a strange smell. Kind of a musty smell. I figured it was just from the packaging and gave it a few days to air out...and it never really went away. Threw it in the dryer with a dryer sheet...that helped a little but I can still tell there is a bit of that musty, chemical smell there. May have to send it back and exchange it. As long as you do not get one with that musty smell, I think you would really enjoy the jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jacketeer from Comfortable Great fit ("slightly fitted") for wearing over a shirt; it won't really accommodate something like a sweater. Not windproof (but then again, not too warm). Very comfortable after first wash. It is a little heavier than I was expecting, but OK. It is a tad too heavy to roll up sleeves when it gets a little warm. LLBean does not seem to offer a lighter-weight "slightly fitted" fleece sweater/jacket. The collar is a little taller than the website photos would lead you to believe ("Classic Black").

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous from Unusually snug for a large To be perfectly frank, I didn't like the sweater texture of this fleece much. But the reason I returned it was that it was uncomfortably snug for a large. I buy a lot of stuff from LL Bean, mostly polo shirts, T-shirts, jeans and slacks, and my biggest complaint is that sizing isn't particularly consistent from one item to the next, and even when ordering the same item a second time. I was surprised at how tight this fleece jacket was, even just over a T-shirt. So my advice, if you are ordering this, is to order one size up from your usual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LookFun from Great for Women too I'm a 5'3" woman and I decided to try this man's sweater because the description said; it was slighty fitted, there were many colors available and I also knew that the length would be longer which would cover more of my body and keep me warmer. I guessed right on the armpit area, it is bigger to accommodate layering. This is difficult to find this in women's jackets. I was so delighted when I got these jackets, one in blue and the other in gray. They are nice and soft on the inside yet look very sporty.
