Rated 3 out of 5 by LittleElephants from Nice but... The material is nice and soft and warm. But, for the money this costs, there are two issues that make it less than wonderful as far as I am concerned. The sleeves are short - not horribly so, but for the price, they should be an inch longer. Secondly, the zipper is the skinniest, flimsiest zipper I have ever seen on any article of clothing. It is so small that it's hard to get it started at the bottom. And if you want to use the hood, be aware that you will look a little like a conehead (I guess this is a third issue with this hoodie.) All that being said, I will keep it because it will keep me warm and also I already cut the tags out. I just wish it were better quality for the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by cashmere from cashmere that pills I have had two other L.L. Bean cashmere sweaters that I LOVED!!!! They were zip up front w/mock turtleneck (so cozy in winter). The zipper even zipped from top or bottom. When I needed a new sweater the one loved was no longer available (why not keep an item that's so GOOD?!) So I ordered this cashmere hoody. It pills easily, zips one way & does not zip up high on my neck for cold winter days. An expensive disappointment. Please bring back the heavier weight cashmere that does NOT PILL, with the zip up front mock turtleneck. It's a winner!

Rated 4 out of 5 by EmWa from Cashmere Hoodie I love the cashmere hoodie in general and have had 4-5 now over the years. It is very warm but very light weight and not bulky. Great for traveling, and fitting under a wind/rain parka. My biggest complaint is that the sweater always wears through at the elbows after about 2 years. I do not have this problem with other sweaters. Yes, I could sew on elbow patches myself, but for such an expensive product, I think they should solve this issue with some sort of reinforcement. The newest (2020) version is also longer than previous by about 4 inches. This is fine if you're wearing leggings, but otherwise makes it look ill fitting. Perhaps make a choice between "regular" and "long".

Rated 2 out of 5 by blake from wears out too quickly I've had 5 of these sweaters. I love them in a way b/c they are thin and a great layering piece for solid warmth and cozy-ness. All of them have gotten wear holes in them within a year- at the elbow. I sent a couple back b/c this is not the quality that I expect from LLBean. I definitely recommend that the product team takes a look at the areas where this sweater continually fails and improves the design b/c I miss this piece- it was my wardrobe for many years! I just can't keep buying them b/c of the quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Merrycat from Beautiful but Snug for a Hoodie I ordered the cashmere hoody hoping that it would not be quite as fitted as the description sounded, since LLB XLs are usually generously sized. Alas, it was not as I had hoped. It is beautifully constructed, good length, the zipper is fine for cashmere, and the fig color is luscious - BUT it is too slim fitting to meet my expectations for a hoodie. I would buy one (gulp, even at full price) if LLB offered this, or other cashmere in plus sizes. I usually wear an LLB XL petite, but this garment is just too snug, so sadly, back it goes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shopper923 from Beautiful! I am a huge fan of LLBean cashmere, especially the open cardigan. I have it in many colors. I purchased this zip hoodie version for a different style. A little more casual but still very classy looking. It is beautiful! I love the feel and weight of the cashmere and the fit is perfect. I love that it is slightly longer. It provides better coverage and fits nicely through the body. I strongly dislike too short sweaters so I appreciate that Bean offers other lengths. It was a bit of a splurge but I think it was worth it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JayTeeH from Good sweater, bad zipper The cashmere is beautifully soft and thick. Very cozy and rich-looking. The zipper is very puny and it's hard to zip the sweater when you're wearing it. The two parts of zipper don't go together easily...it's a struggle. No problem to zip when the sweater is lying on a flat surface. So I've decided to leave it zipped and slip the sweater over my head. Not ideal but it's worth it to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BEANGIRL from EXCELLENT QUALITY This cardigan is a nice tight knit. Very soft and cozy..I usually order a large but Bean seems to always be on the smaller side with clothes. Ordered XL and glad I did..it fits great...not short..covers hip which is what I like..TRUE NAVY BLUE COLOR. Very classy look!! Very well made. Highly recommend!! You won't be sorry! I always purchase Bean's cashmere products! Love the turtlenecks too! Got one in each color..ordered in September because they are always sold out once you get into October!
