Whether you're on the mountain or off, the Arc'teryx Women's Covert Cardigan provides cozy warmth and outstanding style that you love. Polartec Thermal Pro has the look of wool, but it's actually polyester so the jacket wicks sweat and dries quickly on your hiking adventures. The Covert has a relaxed fit so you can layer over and under it with ease for your skiing sessions. And flatlock seams decrease the bulk for comfortable backpacking endeavors.

The Covert features gusseted underarms that keep the jacket in place when you reach, bend, and twist around. Stretch-knit cuffs keep the jacket in place and feel smooth next to your wrists. A color-contrasted binding covers the hem, cuffs, and collar for a bit of style and a lot of durability. Arc-teryx laminated the sleeve and hand pockets and glued-in the zipper to decrease bulk and keep you comfy whether you're hiking through Glacier National Park or sipping coffee at the local café.

Nicely made light weight jacket

The fit is perfect for me- not strangulation type form fitting, but not bag like either. I used this jacket in the winter as an indoor top layer over short sleeved shirts. It fits easily under winter coats when I have to head outside for errands or chores. For the fall and spring it has worked as a light weight coat by itself as long as it is not windy. Packs nicely in or on a day pack depending on size of backpack. Great for around town errands and evenings by the campfire.

I have to emphasize it is NOT WINDPROOF. The wind cuts right through it. Also unfortunately it is inclined towards pilling. And while I have yet to find a true fleece that doesn't - it is worth noting that that this coat happily attracts dog hair like a magnet attracts nails. Not convinced it's worth the full retail price but on sale with smartly managed discounts to boot it is nice.

Still despite the few downsides, it is soft, machine washable, has a nice cut and good large pockets that are easily large enough to hold smart phone, keys, ipod and a portable seagate hard drive all at the same time.

I bought it because of the colour!

This jacket was an impulse buy as I was so attracted to the verbena colour. It has a heathery hue and I have received compliments on it everytime I wear it. I am on the taller/longer arm scale, and this jacket does ok. Sleeve length falls perfectly and pockets sit at a good height for keeping hands inside for warmth. I use the jacket up here in Alaska. Does ok for zero degrees celcius for jaunts around town, but like everyone else says....useless in the wind. Pockets can fit keys/security swipe cards, some pepper spray and an ipod well. Snugger fit than some of my other fleece jackets, but that's what makes this more of a style purchase. Wouldn't have paid the full price for this if it hadn't of come in this colour (as embarassing as this is to admit!)

Warm & cozy

Another comfortable and functional piece from Arc Teryx! I always reach for this cardigan when heading to town for errands, shoveling the driveway and sitting around the campfire. Makes a great apres ski warm-up too. I always receive compliments when I wear this. I like the zippered arm pocket and fleece lining in the hand pockets. When I purchased they didn't have the hooded version; I would probably get that version next time, just to have the extra warmth and versatility of a hood.

This cardigan (sweatshirt?) is extremely comfortable, warm enough to use as a good mid-layer if you're not expecting any wind protection (you can see through the fibers). Unfortunately it is a lint magnet and the fabric is pilling. I'm not sure it's worth the price but I got it on sale. I love the twilight color, and I have no complaints about the comfort at all.

My wife is thrilled

I gave this to my wife for Christmas. It is more fitted and stylish than what she usually wears. (She is 64 and in good shape.) It looks really great on her and she is getting many complements from friends and family. She says she loves the look, weight, warmth and fit. Santa Barbara doesn't get very cold so she can wear it often.

cozy and flattering

Fleece somehow made to look like knit sweater. Very cozy and flattering body con cut. I sized down for more fitted cut (from S to XS). Works great for short waisted people like me. No pit vents, so is more of casual jacket, not so much for aerobic unless use as underlayer in VERY cold weather. A step above your standard fleece zip up!

Definitely would buy this fleece again!

I bought this fleece as a Valentine's Day gift for my girlfriend. We had looked at it in store a few months ago but the correct size wasn't available. After purchasing online, she stated that it fits extremely well, is true to size and is very comfortable. She wears it for casual use and would certainly recommend it to others.

Love this cardigan

I love this cardigan. Have 3 of them in jade, cornflower, and driftwood (maroon color). It is so warm and when I got snow on it accidentally, I was shocked to see it didn't absorb the snow and get wet, like most fleeces. I'm giving one to my mom just for daily winter wear.

not long enough

Great fleece, but the length is on the short side. I am tall, so am used to this, but even with the large the sleeves and overall length are too short, despite extra material. It's warm, lightweight and very soft. Would like to see some sort of venting in the armpits.
andrea at Mountain Gear on 01/01/2010

Love this jacket

This is a great everyday jacket, warm comfy and very cute. Fit is perfect, not bulky or shapeless. If it gets really cold, I shift over to down sweater or add a wind jacket. I wear it in the house during winter just because I like it so much.

Negative Reviews:

Expensive, COLD, but Great Fit

This fleece jacket satisfied my want for a great fitting fleece jacket. I'm unsually small, I guess (5'2", 105 lbs.), and the smallest size fleece jackets from other brands were still very baggy on me. Sadly, this jacket is extremely not windproof, to the point where I'd prefer to not wear the jacket at all if caught out and about on a windy day. It's like wearing loose mesh.

Poor Fit

I had high hopes for this fleece. I am 5' tall and this jacket is too short in the front and the sleeves are way too long on me.

Neutral Reviews:

I like it enough

I was looking for a comfortable fleece jacket that was not horribly baggy, so the fact that it runs a bit small made this jacket work for me. The jacket has a nice shape, but it is a bit short, which works well for me, but maybe not for the average torso. The biggest pro of this jacket is the look of it. It is fairly warm, but not at all windproof.

Even at the sale price, other jackets offer significantly more functionality. Unless you're highest priority is finding a good fitting/cute jacket, you may be better off with another jacket.
