Women's Polartec Aircore 100 Half-zip Pullover
I have bought many fleece pullovers from LE over the years, and I have loved the two tone ones that have had a fitted construction. Nothing can be worse than these 2012 failures. See through material, thin, masculine boxy fit, with enough room inside for many layers of clothing. I have to fold back the sleeves 5 inches just to see my wrists. Frankly, they fit me like my husband's fleece pullovers do. And they are not the same Polartec 100s of the past.
PLEASE bring back the old Polartec 100 fleece and the previous style/cut, and two tone colors. These are pathetic. I could buy the same kind at WalMart for just a few dollars.

ordered a tall
great to have a longer sleeved option available. i do believe the tall sizes run slightly larger all over rather than just the length of jacket and sleeve length. a thin (read comfortable not binding) pullover that is very warm.

Nice colors but way toooo stretchy
I love the previous version of these fleece tops, I have many of them. They are starting to get a bit worn so I looked for news ones this year. I liked the colors this year but I do not like the fabric. I hands down support Malden Mills the Manufacturer of Polartec and prefer to buy products using their fleece when I can. But I think these are way too stretchy. The top is very soft but it constantly creeps up and pulls in all directions. It is not as flattering fit as the previous ones either. Please have a less stretchy version next year more like these tops used to be.

Bring back Thermacheck 100!
Agree with previous reviews that this fleece is cheaper looking than the Thermacheck 100. Do not like the look or feel of the fabric. Please bring back the Thermacheck which is lightweight, lasts for a long time & flattering to wear. Really wanted gray & sorry I missed out on the Thermacheck 100. Also where are the fleece vests this year in a variety of colors? Love to layer the Thermacheck 100 vests for variable weather conditions as well.

I love this fleece. I read some of the other reviews that reported some problems with this fleece, but not me! I received this as a Christmas gift so I have had it for about 2 months at this time. It has held up great! I am thrilled that it was offered in TALLS! The fit is comfortable and the Tall size allows me to have sleeves that are actually long enough and a length that is not like a crop top!

The wonderbread of fleece
These look really nice, have beautiful colors, wick moisture well..but don't expect them to last very long. You can see right through the fabric, it goes flat at the elbows within two months, and has a static cling problem with whatever you wear underneath it. Not the durable fleece that lasts for years. But if you want a very affordable product that will look good for a few months, this is it!

Doesn't worth the full price. Can keep it for warmth at 50% off...
I am keeping mine. I bought this at Sears. I didn't bother to try it on because I have been getting fleece from LE all the times. I got gray and it's a little thicker than therma check 100. I would never imagine this fleece has problem with the neckline. I can't wear this with the zipper up. My neck is not big at all. However, it chokes me whenever I tried to zip all the way up. If you leave the zipper down, this is a fine piece.

OK, I like this fleece pretty well EXCEPT that the description that is is anti-static and resists "even pet hair" is a total joke. This thing picks up lint and hair like a magnet. Even when I lint-roll it, it still looks a total mess.

Odd seams & poor fit
Once again, Lands End has taken a perfectly good product and changed it for the worse. Just a few months ago, I purchased a Thermacheck 100 quarter zip fleece pullover and I really like it. That product is no longer available, presumably it's been replaced by this item. This item has ugly thick double seams that run from the neck out to the shoulder and more across the top of the shoulder, as well as similar princess seams in front & back. The old Thermacheck just had normal princess seams which were great for shaping, but these thick seams add nothing. A small in the Thermacheck fit me well, but the small in this item is not good - very long sleeves, low armpits and wide shoulders. And finally, the "Polartec Aircore 100" tag sewn onto the exterior of the hem at the rear hip is totally unnecessary advertising and just plain annoying! (Conveniently, you can't really see it in the photo). The fabric is a nice weight though, and the Midnight Tulip is a pretty light plum color though, which is why I gave it a 2.

First time ever I was not satisfied with a Land's End product. The upper curved seem on this top was puckered, creating a bunchy look where the body naturally curves inward. Below the puckered seam the top pulled where it should have eased. Could not wear anything but a nylon type cami underneath as the top continually road up creating unsightly horizontal bunching when worn with a cotton tank or tee. Fit was a bit large compared to the fit of the thermacheck fleece. Prefer seaming and sizing of the therma check top. I did love the extra warmth of the fabric, so I gave it a 3. Otherwise, for me, this top is only suitable for wearing around the house.
