Boys' Hooded Pullover Sweatshirt
Lots of caveats with this one!
I ordered a size M sweatshirt for my average height, thin 12-year old, who was initially excited by how soft and hefty it felt. However, when he put it on, laughter ensued as he could barely squeeze into it. He handed the sweatshirt to his very small (10th% height & weight) 9-year old brother, who put it on and it JUST FIT. He loved how thick and warm it was, so we kept it. Today I washed it in cold and dried it on warm/gentle, and it shrank. My little one may get to wear it a time or two before we have to pass it down to a younger cousin. This may be the first time that I've had a LE shirt run small, but in this case, I'd say it's at least a full size small, and even smaller once you wash/dry it. With that caveat - ORDER A SIZE LARGER - it's a nice, thick, basic hooded sweatshirt that should last for many wearings.

made well, the fit was so small , not even funny. I don't want to pay postage to return, so I am waiting until I am near a store to return it
I ordered a boys size 4 and it was smaller than a 2 t.
I feel as if I should have ordered a 5-6 , but my grandson takes a 5T
so I had already ordered a size up

Perfect sweatshirt for boys
I bought this sweatshirt for my 8 year old (M - size 10-12) and my 11 year old (L - size 14-16). I sized up for the extra room and because I like to wash and dry my clothes without fear of shrinking. The sweatshirts are great and they look great after multiple washings. The solid gray color (hooray! no patterns or logos!) matches everything my boys wear including their sport shorts and sweats with crazy fluorescent colors. The fabric is thick and feels heavy, which I love. I will keep buying this sweatshirt for as long as LE makes it.

Soft yet well made to last. itting perfect for room to grow.
My 8 yo boy loves this. Well made, great material and seams are soft. Great for after swim, evening meal outside and will be good staple in winter. I've been a stickler for fleece but this fits all sorts of occasions and looks smart as well, not sloppy in navy with nice summer slacks.

This is a great supplement to my 5th grader's wardrobe. Hoodies are in full swing, and I don't want them all to have a DC or North Face logo! The quality and softness is comparable. Multiple washings have held up!

We've been buying Land's End sweats for our kids for years now, and they are always worth the money. They are heavier than most, which we all love, and they retain their shape and color, though I have noticed that if I dry them in the dryer, they do shrink over time, even though they are not supposed to.

This sweatshirt was perfect, roomy hood for those chilly mornings on the soccer field.
Great fabric, minimal fading and added embroidery to pick it out from all other sweatshirts on the field. Definitely recommend!

The search is over! As long as LE keeps making these, with the same quality of material and craftsmanship, I will not buy sweatshirts anywhere else. Substantial and soft material, very well-made. I also like that it does not say anything on the chest, and it does not have annyoing cord dangling in the front.
Side note: I am female, 5'2", 100lbs, and this sweartshirt in size L (14-16), which I got for my son, is humongous on me. I think size M would be a fantastic fit for a small person like me, provided the sleeve length is right. Just a thought.

Bought this in red to go with LE Down Vest....
Bought this for my 7 year old Grandson to go under a LE Down Vest, as one of his Christmas gifts. Fit and colour were good, and the thickness of the fabric was fine. Was a little disappointed in the quality of the fabric but it still better than a lot I have seen out there. Overall, was a good purchase.

I bought this as a knock-around hoodie, home, gym, and it is great! Warm, true to size, and is great quality...I am 5 feet about 100 pounds, and the boys large fits me to a tee!!
