Anyone have any experiences with this sweatshirt? It looks really nice to me, and I am in the hunt for something for the fall/winter here in Colorado. I want something that will go with a lot of stuff and is warm/comfy. I am considering the grey one.

Anyone have a review or suggestions for alternatives?

I've got one, in gray. It's warm and pretty generously sized, and the security pockets are not as dorky as they sound. The gray is a shade darker than heather, and the fleece is pretty yellow, so it's not going to match everything you own, but it's a good price for a good quality standard.

Would you recommend anything else over it? And did you order your normal size? I know LL Beans stuff can be cut kind of large.

Funny you suggested that I just went to a J. Crew store to check that one out today. It seems nice but I don't like the way they did the edges around the zipper. They are kind of puffy and I think it makes the fit weird. Does J. Crew have one thats a more standard hoody design? I didn't see anything else like it in the store.

Mine's a little older, but I think I know what you mean. They do have a standard hoody, but it doesn't have any kind of lining I don't think.

Well I think I might try to hunt around for the other J. Crew hoody. I would really love the sherpa one if it wasn't for the weird edging. It was really warm/comfy.
