Men's L.L.Bean Sweater Fleece Pullover is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 452.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great construction and warmth, weird sizing The jacket itself is great. It's warm, pretty durable, and the colors are nice. The sizing seems a little off to me. I'm 6'1" about 180 (I'm a pretty thin guy) and bought the regular large. The size in the chest and sleeves was good but it was akwardly short in the torso. It sat no more than an inch below my belt and if I were to reach up to grab something, my stomach would be exposed. I returned it for a Tall Large. Sleeves are a little long but the fit is much better in the torso. The sizing is imperfect but if you're over 6'0", you'll probably want to choose the Tall option, even if it results in sleeves that are slightly too long.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pocket Non-functional This pullover used to have two pockets. Now it has one - sometimes called a "kangaroo pouch" pocket. I returned it because of this design. Everything in your pocket goes to the center. If you lean over something, you may crush whatever is in the pocket. Also, you can't follow a routine of organizing things in your pockets - reading glasses right, sun glasses left, phone right, right glove right, etc. Everything is mixed together. I find it annoying. I was disappointed in the change because I really like the aging one I have. I was hoping fall 2018 might bring a change - nope.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fleece Pilling, Liner Stretching I am usually thrilled with LLBean quality, but this is a rare instance where a garment had fallen short. I often keep my sunglasses in a pocket - in this case, where the hands pocket is. It is backed up by a very sheer liner material which stretches easily. Even the light weight of my sunglasses has stretched the material, which now protrudes from the bottom front hem and looks like a weird pouch. I am also surprised that after only a few washings, the fleece material is pilling. C'mon LLBean, you usually do better than this!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sleeves run long Nice looking. Roomy enough to not be confining. Got it in the blue, which is a nice shade. Unfortunately, the sizing of the sleeves is out of whack. I am a Regular XL and normally wear a 34/35 sleeve. On this sweatshirt the sleeves go well below my wrist. About a third of the way down my hands. I would think that a 37/38 sleeve length would be the Long version. I own a similar sweatshirt from Patagonia where the elastic at the bottom of the sleeves is a little more effective. On this shirt the hem of the sleeve narrows the cuff a bit, but it has no real benefit to keeping the sleeves up. The overall effect is like wearing your older brother’s sweatshirt when you were a kid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm, well-made, but large. I have a few fleece sweaters from a few other brands and realize the fit varies. I got a Large in this one as it as described as "slightly fitted" which led me to expect it would fit my frame well. It is not at all fitted - it wears like it was designed for someone with much more mass and heft than me. Arm length is slightly long too, but that is easy to correct with an alteration if desired. But the overall fit with the arm pouch and loose bottom is just too large and baggy. It would not look good in a business-casual setting. That being said, it is very warm and feels well-made, so I think I'll try exchanging for a medium.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor construction First off, this fleece fits great and is very comfortable. It looks great too. Unfortunately the stitching around the cuffs is cheap and light. After a couple wearings and one wash, the piping around the cuffs is beginning to break loose. At this price point I was expecting a much more durable product. I wanted this to be a go-to fleece for around the house, but at this rate it will only last for a couple months before it needs replacing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wear It Everyday I initially purchased a hickory and found I was wearing it nearly everyday once the weather turned cool. So on the next 25% off sale I bought a second one, bright navy. They are very comfortable and can be worn with a variety of shirts for style and warmth. My pup, with her long nails often jumps up on me and she has yet to cause a snag so am confident in durability. Plus being able to clean in washer/dryer makes it more practical for everyday wear. Looking at getting a full zip to replace my older fleece jacket as it is warmer, more stylish and just as comfortable and durable as the fleece jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Expected! This is a very warm pull over that can be worn as an outdoor activity 'sweatshirt' or keep it on inside as a great fitting and good looking sweater. L.L.Bean has ALWAYS delivered just what I expected... the quality of construction is wonderful. Washed it 4 times already and it looks just like new. Great buy!
