Women's Cap Sleeve Performance Soft Shell
Love This Fabric!
This fits nicely--not too fitted and the sleeves are a good length (not cap).
The neckline is OK--I prefer a crew neck but this is not too deep.
Fabric is excellent. The rayon blend is soft and comfortable and holds up nicely after washing.

Very cute but fit may be inconsistent
I normally wear an XS petite but had the impression that this sweater fit big. I wanted a nice short sleeved pullover I could wear to work. I would have preferred this to be cotton but it seemed to have a nice style and the cotton pullovers appeared to be extremely basic. I ordered it in Neptune Blue in XXS petite and XS petite, decided the XS was just too big and kept the XXS. Wanting a second sweater, I ordered the Sweet Bordeau in XXS petite and found it to be too tight in the shoulders and under the arms. I may decide to order it in the XS petite in the Sweet Bordeau but the sizing really should have been consistent among all the colors. I don't truly feel like I am an XXS petite and would rather stick with my usual size once I knew that size would always fit. I was considering getting the short sleeved cardigan in the Sweet Bordeau but now I am not so sure. Even though it's no problem to bring the items back to Sears to return, these are not available in the store, at least in Petite, so I have to wait to get my order. It shouldn't be this much work to get two sweaters. I only cautiously recommend the sweater because of the uncertainty of getting the right size the first time.

Love the fit!
This sweater is a great weight for Spring weather in the Midwest. I have worn it both to work, and to a casual dinner out. It is a flattering fit and true to size.

Nice, not for summer
I bought the beautiful blue sweater. I love that color, and I like the sweater, but I wore it on a particulary warm day (it's only May but it's been hot here) and I was too warm - even though it's short sleeved, this sweater really isn't for summer. It would work as a fall through spring sweater under a cardigan or jacket. Fit was typical Lands' End: larger than most other brands. Very flattering to large chests - minimizes that area.

Nice color, but short, boxy fit
I ordered this in "sweet bordeaux" in both a small and a medium. The color is a beautiful maroon, and the sweater looks to be of good quality. The fit, however, is short (high hip) and boxy, giving the sweater a frumpy look. Neither the small nor the medium fit properly---way too short and nothing like the shape/fit in the website photos. (At 5'7" and 140 pounds, I usually wear a small in Lands End shirts, which tend to run on the large side.)

Just finally got to wear this sweater and is very comfortable. Not tight and neckline is not plunging. For short sleeved, I did feel cold (but not with extra sweater w/ jacket). I personally believe by wearing this black sweater you should wear it some other contrasting colors, otherwise it made me look a little blah.

the color is beautiful and it is soft. However, it does run BIG.

Very serviceable for travel
This sweater was a bit less fitted than I would have preferred, giving a slightly dowdy appearance (as I am rather small-busted). On a curvier figure it would have been perfect. But with its long-sleeve mate, it was the perfect travel set -- very comfortable, pretty color, convertible to match the temperature. Both were long enough that I did not have to worry about a waist gap as I wrestled with my luggage. Since I got a good discount on the price, the set was excellent value; maybe not so much at full price.

Makes a nice twin set with the matching cardigan
I've purchased five of the cardigans (see review) and four of these shells. As a twin set or alone, they can be dressed up or down. I really like the style, especially the length, and the weight. As mentioned in the review of the cardigan, I haven't experienced the pilling that some people have mentioned despite repeated wearings and washings. The bottom of the shell does tend to stretch out after wearing for a full day, but it keeps it shape for several hours before starting to stretch and goes back to normal shape after being washed. The stretching is the only reason I'm not giving this five stars.

Color totally different than on website
I ordered this in the shell heather and the color is not like the website. On the website it looks more like a rose with a more gray mixed into it. The sweater I got is a bright pastel pink with white heather mixed in. The style is nice but I wanted the color shown on the website. The bright pink doesn't look right on me so I'll be sending it back.
