Rated 2 out of 5 by Debbar Love the fit and warmth but the piling is horrible
I have to agree with other reviews on the piling. I have wore it maybe 4 times and it looks like I have owned it for years. I am still trying to decide if I am going to return it for a refund.
It is warm and cozy though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by stylishmimi Warm and fits great
This is comparable to a high end athletic clothing company, but a fraction of the price. Runs a tad big, but the XS is fine. I usually wear a 4/6. The contrasting stitching adds a little style. Very athletic looking. Have worn it alpine skiing as a mid layer and very warm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mlr900 Loved it but it does pill
I loved this item as soon as I got it and I have gotten many compliments. It's true to size, cozy, and the color is really nice. The problem is that within 10 wearings it has pilled all over, not just where you would think it would, like under the arms. There are so many tiny little pills that I'm not even going to try to get them off. I'm still giving it a good rating because I like it so much and I'm continuing to wear it. If LE could figure out what is going on with the fabric, add a couple of pockets on the seam, and add a few colors it would be absolutely perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PBD Not too heavy
Wore camping with temps in the 40-60 range over a tee. Was not too heavy and provided another layer of warmth. The size large was perfect for my 38D chest. especially with a tee underneath. Sleeves long enough so there was no pulling when thumbholes were used.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LCasady Loved this at first but....
I would have to say "ditto" to the review right before mine. Really liked this shirt upon first sight and when I first wore it. Fit true to size, although could be longer for coverage, soft and cozy. It kept me warm on the two walks that I wore it,but after second wearing it is already pilling. So very disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ruthpercalifragilistic Comfy and looks great ... too bad it pills like CRAZY
I loved this activewear pullover from the get-go. The vibrant color (a purplish-fuchsia) is cheery and striking, the contrast stitching gives it a unique look, the "thumb hole" at each sleeve cuff is a great touch; and the fleecy fabric inside the shirt is soft and warm. The fit is true-to-size while still being stretchy enough to be comfortable for virtually every activity.
HOWEVER ... the smooth side of the fabric that is on the outside of the garment is *** extremely *** prone to pilling. Anything that causes the least bit of fabric-against-fabric friction - from your arms brushing against your sides as you walk or run, to sliding a backpack or messenger bag on and off of your shoulder - will quickly result in a rash of little fabric pills across the surface of the shirt. This happened from the very first wearing, and just gets worse each time I wear the shirt.
I'm going to purchase a "sweater shaver" and see if I can restore the appearance of this pullover, otherwise it's pretty much a lost cause. I've never had this happen so quickly or noticeably with a traditional sweatshirt or fleece pullover; there's just something about this particular fabric that makes it a "pill magnet".
I'm really frustrated and disappointed - this pullover is cozy, it looks great with my Lands' End's activewear yoga pants, it washes beautifully, and it would've quickly become a go-to item for me, but the pills reduce it to a fashion "don't". (Also, if Lands' End can manage to fix the pilling issue, perhaps a "Generation 2.0" version of this pullover could include pockets at the side-seams, for stashing keys and a mobile phone when you're on-the-go. Add a few more cool color combos for variety, and then it would be virtually perfect!)
