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 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 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 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 4 out of 5 by Mainexpat from New But Very Promising This arrived just three days ago, and my husband has worn it every day and says he loves it. It is warm, seems well made and I love that it's machine washable and dry-able. I ordered a long even though my husband is 5'11" and it fits fine. My experience with fleece tops is that they become shorter with washing. Happily, this item has no prominent Bean logo. My husband is " allergic" to logos. I wish that there were more color choices such as a deep brown heather or navy heather. I'd give it 5 stars, except that I want to see how it holds up over time. So far, so good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by avallen from Decent jacket, design could be better Bought the blue color in Size L for my 5'10", 210 lb husband. The material and color is nice. The sleeves of this jacket are on the long side, and the body is on the short side. The bottom front of the jacket is straight, and the back dips slightly which is nice, but it could have easily used another inch or two in length all the way around. Overall, it looks a little skimpy in length. Since the sleeves were already on the long side, an XL would have made him look like he had gorilla arms. We kept the jacket, because he needs something that's not a hoodie. But a longer torso would have made it perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Billdozer from Very Happy with the Sweater Fleece This is a great product. Stylish look and fit. Can be used as a jacket on its own, layering when it's cold out, or simply as a sweater over a dress or casual shirt. It definitely seems like another high quality Bean product. The interior pockets at the bottom are a great feature. It also looks like there is an intentional (small) hole at the top of the lining of the external pockets, so that you can run your headphone chord up internally, if you keep your phone in the pocket. Very soft and comfortable interior. The piping trim and zipper flap are solid features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FarmboyinNJ from My Favorite Fleece I stumbled across this fleece in the LLBean store and what a surprise it has been. It fits my tall athletic frame perfectly, is super soft, layers great for warmth, and is holding up well after 5 washes. I get more compliments on this fleece that any other I have ever had. But if you are not trim or athletic then this fleece will be too tight on you. It follows the LLBean sizing norms but its a perfect fit in the chest and midsection for an active individual.
