Covert performance.

While the Arc'teryx Women's Covert Cardigan looks like a cardigan and offers the comfort and fashion of a collared cardigan sweater, this thing also offers everything you'd expect from an Arc'teryx performance fleece. The Alpenex heathered face fabric has the look and feel of fleece, but it's actually polyester so the jacket is breathable, 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 gusseted, and 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.  

  • Breathable, quick-drying fabric
  • Laminated pockets with glued-in zippers
  • Durable, color-contrast binding on hem and cuffs
  • Embroidered logo

Cool cardigan

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Gave this to my mom and she loves it. The fabric is super soft, warm, and wicks moisture. Looks great as a technical piece or casual night out on the town.

A warm feminine jacket that fits!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I bought this jacket in Large thinking it probably would be big and blocky like all other brands since I usually have to go up a size because of my wide athletic shoulders, long arms and waist (5’11 rower here). This commonly leaves an unflattering box shape depsite my relatively trim waist. I was pleasently suprised to find this jacket fit my arms, shoulders and hips but with a nice feminine curve to actually show my waist.
This all confirmed my decision to keep the jacket since it could now double as a warm funcitonal jacket while backpacking as well as wearing out day to day without looking like a PCT’er popping into town.
Thanks for making a jacket to fit a girl that’s active and as always making it top notch quality!

Wonderful Jacket, so soft.

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

I gave this to my mother as a gift and this is what she had to say: "This a fantastic jacket that fits me well, not too short, not too long. The lining is sooo soft, I love it. I use this jacket for casual occasions and the look and slimming fit are great. I highly recommend this jacket."

Versatile

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M

I got this as a gift for a friend and she loves it! A medium seems to fit well on her. It's on the more fitted side, so if you're looking to layer a bunch underneath, then maybe size up. It's a beautiful sweater on par with Patagonia's Better Sweater, but in my opinion has more structure and looks a little nicer (of course it costs a bit more as well). Would work great as a mid-layer for winter hiking or to just wear around the house or office.

A bit baggy

    Ended up returning it because it was too baggy/loose for my girlfriend.

    Super Warm and Comfy Layer

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XS

    I bought this fleece on a cold humid day at Whistler when I just couldn't get warm. Sure enough, it didn't take long and I was toasty.....



    Since then I've used this fleece for many many different activities other than skiing including road trips, flights, dog walking, cold winter sunday morning brunches in pjs, etc.....



    It fits well - skims the body - and not tight anywhere. I can easily wear a light layer underneath with no problem. As well as a layer on top since it's not bulky like some fleeces are. It hits at your hip so not too long it gets in the way and not too short that you expose lower back or belly when you lift up your arms.



    It has a useful left top-of-arm pocket as well as side hand warming pockets. It's soft, stretchy so you can move easily and it comes in great colors (I have azulene).



    The only downside with it is that if you sweat enough in it, it will smell afterwards and need washing. So it's not great for repeated hard activity wearing unless you don't care about being smelly. You can easily throw it into the machine though and it dries quickly (I hang to dry).

    Super Warm and Comfy Layer

    Warm and versatile!

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I purchased this about two months ago and so far am very happy with it - comfortable, warm but breathable, in my limited experience technical enough for active pursuits (it has been hiking, running, & cross-country skiing), but nice enough looking to wear out to (a casual) dinner. I bought it primarily as a warm around-the-house layer, as I work from home but don't like to over-heat and waste energy. It is perfect for this, it provides a lot of warmth without being stiff or bulky. Too early to really speak to durability, but so far no signs of wear after nearly daily use for two months including one machine wash (on delicate setting, air dried).

    On sizing, I am 5'4" and 125 lbs athletic build, a small in most brands but sometimes a medium in Arc'teryx. I tried on both the small and medium and had a hard time deciding. I went with the medium to allow for more layering (with a long sleeve shirt plus heavy sweater underneath the sleeves on the small were a touch snug). Only thing I would change is that the sleeves are a bit long for me on the medium (though at 5'4" I don't have terribly long arms).

    Go to piece for so many activities!

      Go-to warmest fleece

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XS

      This is my absolutely favorite fleece to wear in cold weather.



      What i love:

      1) extremely warm, but breathable and quick drying. Very stretchy so you can have full range of movement. Also, while it's not listed as wind resistant, it definitely cuts the edge off of the wind.

      2) doubles as an outer layer on warmer days.

      3) great for so many activities.... hiking, biking skiing, mountaineering, climbing, or even just hanging out.

      4) LOVE the full zipper, easy on/off, temperature adjustment etc

      5) the fit is relaxed - good extra room on body and arms to layer up, but still attractive on

      6) lots of colors to choose from



      True to size.

      Go-to warmest fleece

      meh

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs small

      kind of a weird fit...the body of it is too wide and too short, and the sleeves are almost too short. i feel like if i went the next size up, the body would be way too wide, so the fit is just strange. also, if you have pets, this thing attracts fur better than a swiffer. just buy one that matches your cat or you'll look homeless.

      Awesome fleece

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      Zinfandel color is beautiful, fabric is soft, quality is excellent. I wanted a trimmer fit, and the small fits well on my 34A-27-37 frame, with room for a thin longsleeve baselayer underneath. The bottom hits at mid-hip level. I'll be using this jacket for hiking, winter-wear beneath a shell, and everyday use.

      Loveit!!!!

        I love this jacket, It is soft, light and warm. I wear it all the time, it is the right length, just below my hips. I ordered L, I am 5'7' and I like the fit.
