Rated 5 out of 5 by GingerScruff from Excellent fit This is my first L.L. Bean purchase and I couldn’t be happier. The fit is trim, but not skinny. The arms are on the slimmer side than most jackets, which I like. I’m 6’1” 220lbs with a moderately athletic build (think broad shoulders and chest, but no six pack) and I found it true to size to other brands I buy in size Large. I called customer service before ordering and they told me the body length on the regular was 27-3/4” and the tall was 30-1/2” I think. I went with the regular and the front stops at the middle of the belt, but the back goes a couple inches lower. It’s super soft inside and out. I can foresee spending my weekends in this jacket for the next six months.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jenny from Pile sheds EVERYWHERE! I hate to give this product a bad review, but the hi-pile fleece sheds absolutely EVERYWHERE. I washed it, and all my clothes in the dryer were covered in lint, and the coat was covered in fleece balls that I had to pick off one-by-one for over half an hour. I then wore it for a week and it shed everywhere, and all over my shirt. I washed it a second time, and it did the same thing as before -- lint all over the dryer and all over the clothes. It had fleece balls all over the jacket that I had to pick off one-by-one. I don't know how many washes it's going to take for this shedding to finally stop.

Rated 3 out of 5 by midwesttad from Runs small After I bought the ladies version of this jacket, I had to buy one for my husband who is always cold. This jacket is super warm and cozy, but in my opinion runs small. My husband normally wears LLBean size medium and he is super skinny so always gets slim fit or fitted shirts/jackets. A medium in this was very short in the body, barely coming to his waist, and the sleeves just barely came to the wrist. I'm returning in exchange for a large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dan2225 from Fleece as Soft as it used to be Over the years I have grown more and more frustrated with fleece coats and vests that have gotten harder and cheaper. This coat is really soft! And looks good. And fits well. It is not super warm, but I am wearing it below freezing on a non-windy day and it is fine. I liked this so much that I bought the other color in men's. Really a wonderful product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NotHappy from Poor Quality & Experience Long time customer. Purchased this fleece along with the pullover version. Washed them together a few times with no issue. After the third wash, the grey pullover fleece pilled and let go of 20% of the fleece, which is now imbedded in my zipper style fleece. The left elbow guard also has a tear in the fabric after only a few weeks of indoor casual wear. Also, be advised, the TALL MED sizes are not consistent and in fact are quite varied, sometimes by more than an inch. Both jackets in my photos are MED TALL (see photos). Terrible. I have fleece jackets from LLBean that have been washed weekly for years and still look almost brand new. What gives? If the impact from COVID is what is hurting the quality I would suggest you slash prices to appropriately reflect the new LLBean fit and finish. I did not spend $250 on fleece jackets to get this type of outcome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by blinkytoo from Weird design colors I would love a version of the Hi Pile that has a hood and none of the garish color combinations. A solid color would be AWESOME! If you have to do all the colors for the fashion conscious then also do one for the people that just want a simple conservative look. Sold grey, brown or blue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Boss from Returned Good looking jacket, fit well but the pile came off on my clothes. I washed it gently and much came off in the dryer but it still came off. Unless I wore it only with a navy blue shirt/sweater etc I could not wear it. I sadly returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GGus from Great pullover Glad you brought back an old classic. Decided to replace my old Bean pullover after 25+ years. This hi-pile fleece is more fur-like; thicker, warmer and more comfortable in a wider range of temperatures. More versatile. Collar is thicker and stands taller. Seams are well sewn and the quality is equal to my old pullover. Zipper side pockets are a nice touch. I like this jacket.
