    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely perfect, but HAND WASH FOR REAL I tried this on in the store and it was hands-down the best-fitting sweater I have ever had on me. I have what I lovingly call monkey arms. Very long. This sweater was actually perfect, even with rolled sleeves like in the photo. So immediately once I got home I tossed it in the washing machine (as anyone that's worked retail does) on the hand wash setting, cold. Shrank like 3+ inches. I am an idiot. Do not be like me. Get this amazing sweater and take care of it the way it asks you to. I am undeterred, I will end up re-buying and buying all other colors. If you're reading this Bean, I'd love it in a forest/olive drab green too :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better in size small--love it! The small size commando sweater in Black arrived today and I put it on immediately and it fits just great!!! It is not as long as the medium which I loved but returned. Now I am contemplating getting it in the dark red... color too.... The wool is warm, thick and lies flat, does not look bulky, but is smooth. I do wear an LL Bean cotton turtle neck under it and that keeps the wool from being itchy. I am around five ft. three inches... give or take, around 140 pounds, more of a pear... This sweater is flat on the chest... so not for showing off feminine endowments.. but i am well past that age and love its quiet dignity as well as how it keeps me warm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the style! I love the Commando style sweaters and am happy to find a model for women. This sweater fits true to the size chart with ample room to layer without looking sloppy. The grey is a nice medium grey and the shoulder and elbow patches are a soft canvas and add a little extra styling. The sweater is made of soft wool and "itchiness" is the nature of the natural fiber. There is ample room in the sizing to allow for a collared shirt which I always wear under wool sweaters. Itchiness solved. Wonderful, simple sweater, ideal for casual and outdoor wear. Love it ! Very nice for the price point!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Wool Sweater on LLB This is my favorite wool sweater on LLB. Some of the other styles are bulky around the middle, but the ribbing on this sweater makes it more flattering. Besides, it is incredibly functional and warm. I normally wear a Large, but the medium with a tee underneath fits me well. (I have broad shoulders, and I need an x-large in some styles.) The fit is nice and snug without being tight, so I could have taken a large for a little roomier fit. The sizing seems forgiving. I also have this sweater in the men's Henley style. The men's medium is a little larger than the women's, but the arms are quite a bit longer. So any ladies who have longer arms may consider the men's.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very warm and will last a long time I used to be a big fan of wool sweaters, but they got cheap and thin until I found this one. This is a tightly woven sweater, so it takes a lot of wear to have pilling as opposed to sweaters that look old after one wear. I have worn it several days and have almost no pilling. Yes it is somewhat scratchy, but I've had cashmere that is worse than this and you get used to it. I can't believe how warm it is. It feels like I'm wearing a blanket. Honestly, I can't believe it's not more expensive. I bought the grey and would buy another but the dark red and black aren't good colors for me. Please made these in other colors such as Ivory, Navy, Olive, and Mustard. I would buy more!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thick and warm commando sweater for women! I asked LL Bean a few years back to make this sweater as well as their men's rag wool sweaters available in women's sizes and in the same muted, neutral colors for women. So very glad they listened!! I love their men's wool sweaters and colors, been buying them for my husband for over 25 years. When this sweater and the rag wool for women finally came out in these neutral muted colors, nobody could have been happier! Been stocking up on them ever since. Thanks LLB for always being the best and listening to your customers! Loyal customer since the 1980's.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WINE COLOR kind to my face I love this sweater in black... and decided to go for the Wine color... and am so pleased. The color wine, also called maroon goes well with my somewhat pale complexion bringing out some of the pink and tan tones... and goes well with brown eyes and brown hair.... Growing up in the 40's and 50's maroon and wine were colors more for men... then in the early 60's I had a wool maroon jacket and skirt... and since then have loved the color. The sweater keeps me at the right temp all day. I had been concerned that it might be to hot at times... but no.. I have worn both the black and wine commando sweaters from morning to night in comfort. Excellent quality of wool and construction.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for! I had been pondering just picking up a military surplus wool sweater for cheap but the women's specific cut on this sweater is what sold me. This is the only women's specific version of this style of sweater I've come across and it works well for me. Based on others reviews, I got an extra small since I like a close fit. I typically wear a small or occasionally a medium but in this case the fabric has enough stretch over my boobs to be as flattering as a sweater this thick can realistically be. It is scratchy but I don't mind as I typically have it over at least at T-shirt. I use it for outdoorsy activities (sledding, hiking, bushwhacking, general adventuring etc) and find it warm but breathable. I love the classic UK 'jumper' look and find that I can dress it up or down depending on the rest of the outfit.
