    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4th Time Buying Them! I have bought these four times over the years for my husband and now my son! Absolutely no complaints here! I buy tall for my husband who is 6'2" and has long arms and torso. My husband's job is working 10-12 hours outside every day of the year in the Northeast. This is his "coat" from fall through early spring! My son goes to school in Northern Maine, and now this is the only thing he wears outside! Extremely warm with no bulk! The color of the "Deep Wood Green Heather" in my opinion looks more like a deep brown. I wash them on delicate in cold water, then reshape, and lay flat to dry. Never any shrinkage and still looks brand new!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from OK but not like my previously purchased sweater I purchased a commando sweater about twenty years ago and still own it and wear it. It developed a couple of moth holes last summer which I repaired but I decided to buy an new one. The new model is significantly lighter in weight, not nearly as closely knitted and a shade or two different in color. The wool on the new one is a bit like rag wool but this might just be the looser knit. Its not as warm as the old version either. However, the new sweater because of its lighter color and looser knit looks less military and might be more appropriate for indoor wear. I would recommend this sweater; its not as good as it used to be, but then what is?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Commando Sweater Commando sweaters are my favorite LL bean sweaters. Warm, good fit ( my size is large tall- I am 6’ and 209 ibs (yea I know COVID weight, I was 199 before I spent a year eating ice cream, it seemed like a good idea at the time) . Back to the sweater, the gray is a new color and I really like it. You can’t go wrong with any color though, black, blue, heather, green, they have all kept me toasty warm on those cold nights selling Christmas Trees for my Rotary Club. I am pretty sure Daniel Craig saw me in my sweater and decided to get one in blue for his last Bond movie. An excellent choice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional and Looks Great Sweater fits a little more trim than my other various sweaters in men's large. I'm pretty tall with a very long torso and XL reg fit perfectly. The sleeves can roll to adjust, and the torso is cut a good bit longer than a typical dress sweater which is perfect for me. Unless you're 6'5"+, you probably don't even need the tall size. As some negative reviews say, the wool is not super luxurious or soft, and it a little bit itchy if you aren't used to wool, but it's thick, and most importantly WARM. This is a functional garment, not a fashion statement. It keeps me warm even down to 40deg. Worth every penny.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from A pale reflection of former glory I agree with what other reviewers have said. This is not a British MoD wolly pully, but a Chinese copy, made with inferior wool. It looks well enough when new, but after a short term of wear, it is no longer presentable. I can only wear mine for doing household chores and gardening. I suggest you look for the real thing, available at not a not much higher price.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Made In China First I would like to say this is not an actual wool commando sweater. It is a replica of a wool commando sweater. I have an actual wool commando sweater purchased in the 1980's. It is made in the United Kingdom and very heavy and warm. It is getting old so I was looking for a replacement. This sweater is made in China and is lightweight in comparison. Not that it's not a nice garment. It would look great at the coffee house or wine bar. Makes me look like someone who spends time outdoors. However, I was looking for a sweater that would actually keep me warm when I spend a cold day outdoors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Female reviewer- better than the women’s version I have the women’s version of this in black from last year. I really like it but the shoulders are narrow and arms a little short for me; I’m on the tall side and I have longer than average arms and broad shoulders for a woman. I also really wanted a green one, which doesn’t come in women’s. So I decided to try this in small since with my frame I can often make men’s things work, and I love it - I just roomy enough for great comfort and movement, but it’s not swallowing me. The wool is much softer and a bit heavier - but to be fair that could be a product of the color difference. New favorite sweater! I’m tempted to replace my black women’s with a black men’s version! Great quality sturdy wool sweater at a very reasonable price for what you’re getting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The real deal I bought this sweater for my husband who has outgrown his original one. He loves it ans says it's the same quality and style as the original one he had. He order the Woods Green Heather which is brown. As another reviewer stated, this is not green. It should be called dark brown. But it's still what hubby wanted he was fine with either color. He's about 5'8 or 5'9 and the regular was a good fit. The Tall was way too long in the sleeves even with the sleeves rolled up. I was lucky to have received a 30% off coupon from LL Bean from earlier this year when a back ordered item took over 2 months to arrive. So we only paid about $46 for this item. You can't beat that deal.
