Women's L.L.Bean Sweater Fleece Long Vest is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 81.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good layering piece Bought the medium and small. I am usually in between medium and small, in LLBean clothes, but normally am a solid M or L in other brands. Runs a bit big and will keep the small. Like the longer length, and will only buy longer length vests. This one juuuuust covers my tush, but is shorter in the front. I do wish it were an inch or two longer overall. However, it will be a good layering piece for all seasons with a long sleeve/dress/flannel underneath for work or for play. It is a medium weight fabric more on the thinner side, but isn't super thin. It should help keep your core cozier around the house, at the office, or the classroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and comfy The sailcloth color is very nice and the interior fleece is very soft. I love the length (mid hip with the drop tail covering my backside) much better than regular length vests as it doesn’t rise up. Typical for Bean vests, it runs a bit large. I am a size 12 but prefer XL coats for the extra room and no cling. I got the large which is roomy like the XL Bean sweater jacket in the same material. It’s very warm and looks great over sweaters and plaid shirts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vest I love the sweater fleece coat I got a couple of years ago so much that I decided to try a vest this time. I'm glad I did, as it's a very nice piece. It looks great over any number of plaid shirts with jeans and my L.L. Bean boots. I guess it's a little longer than maybe the jacket (hence the name, "long vest"), but I didn't find it to be too long (even though I'm short). The length and other aspects of sizing were all good for me. It's roomy enough to zip up over any shirt but looks good unzipped too. It's very well made and I think I'll enjoy it for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE the length! This vest is really lovely. I purchased the Sailcloth color and have now purchased another in Pewter. It fits perfectly just skimming my body when zipped. My waist is 36". Very nice details throughout and lots of handy pockets. The tight-knit sweater weave with the light fleece inside is very soft and comfy. My bum is covered nicely too! I'll be wearing this all fall and winter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice quality, & weight Happy so far. Have a number of old fleece vest from LLBEAN, but this is first sweater vest. Like the extra length & warmth. Got medium which fits over a light sweater for me. Only complaint is with not having a 2 way zipper with the extra length... very inconvenient when sitting either at home or wearing in car making short errands. Would like other colors also like a true navy blue!! Worn it only a few times so haven't washed it yet...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Pockets This vest has been a great addition to my walking attire. Here in the South, a vest is often a best choice for an outside walk especially in late February. The pockets are also deep and zipped, perfect for outdoor exercise. I’m not a fan of the green LL Bean patch on the front pocket. Not a fan of any advertising on clothing but if you must, something less “patchy” would be preferable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Length excessive Vest was too long in the back. Oversize logo patch on the chest made me feel like a walking advertisement. I returned this item just this morning. Tried it on 3 different times at home and the verdict was the same each time, not what I hoped it would be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent cut and design features I had rather low expectations since I normally purchase petite sizes. However, this vest (at least in cream/white) definitely exceeded my expectations. Look closely at the refined side pockets. The zipper pull tab doesn't show, the pocket seam is edged with white fabric. Great for dog walking as the pockets are plenty big for a large phone, dog bags, dog treats and keys. The semi-empire waist seam is flattering even on short-bodied me. Easy to wear with tights since it covers my bum. I didn't think I would like the white solid color upper pocket, but it would be too plain without it. The vest is warm when zipped up, and easy to cool down with it unzipped. Wish it came in other more interesting colors like lavender, for example. The XL is a bit large on me, but when the pockets are filled with dog-walking items, it is better to have the larger size.
