A synthetic in sheep's clothing.

The Arc'teryx Women's Covert Fleece Hooded Jacket might look like wool, but it's made of heathered Alpenex fleece for lightweight and versatile comfort. It breathes well and dries quickly and, like most synthetics, is easy to keep clean so you can wear it on longer trips without worrying about that coffee stain you acquired five minutes after leaving the house.

Spending as much time in town as in the mountains? Arc'teryx gave the Covert a trim, hip-length cut for a flattering look when you're strolling down the street or heading to class, and added color-contrasted bindings on the hem, cuffs, and hood for style and durability. Zippered laminated hand pockets keep your fingers warm and dry, and a sleeve pocket can be used to hold your phone or ski pass, if you're layering the Covert under a shell.

Poor design

    I don’t know what sport this jacket is designed for. When you lift your arms, it rides up and then you have to tug it down. No good for anything but walking. Too bad because it looks nice. Returned

    Awesome

      Gave this to my Mom as a gift. She loves it!!! Nice fit. Looks good and is comfortable

      This is the best fleece I have owned. Arc'€™teryx is on point with every single thing they make. This fleece in particular is high quality and worth the price. Arc'€™teryx makes functional comfortable gear. I purchased a size small and I am about 130lbs and 5'€™4"€ and it'€™s a great size with a trim fit for layering. There is not a lot of left over bulk.
      Pros
      - Super durable
      - Flattering
      - Arm pocket for ID, cards, and cash
      - Trim fit flatters the waist line
      - Hand pockets fit an Iphone 6 no problem
      - Super sleek and great for layering with a shell
      - Excellent mobility in the shoulders and arms
      - Beautiful color

      My new favorite!

      I have the covert in another style as well but wanted a hoody for versatility. After wearing for several weeks, the hoody is my new go to for many different types of weather. So far it has seen me through snow, rain, and cool spring evenings. As with my other covert fleece, I receive many compliments on the style and fit. I am far from a toothpick and the XL fits perfect!

      The warmest fleece

      • Size Bought: xs

      This is an amazing fleece that doubles as a jacket



      1) super warm while being reasonably thin and lightweight

      2) i feel the material definitely cuts the edge off the wind, though it is not advertised as wind resistant. For sure, far more than any other fleece i have.

      3) roomy and stretchy enough to make layering and moving around very easy

      4) somewhat fitted, but not really. I'd say it's halfway between a trim and relax fit.

      5) lots of fun colors to choose from.



      My orange one is from a past season



      The warmest fleece

      Great Fleece!!!

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

      I gave this as a gift and the gift recipient really loved it. The material is really soft and it keeps the body warm. I got the grey color and it's definitely a great choice! I recommend ordering one size up because this jacket runs a little bit small.

      I like

        soft, but I like white more than grey

        Favorite Fleece to date

        I, too, was a huge fan of the Patagonia better sweater... until I scored this on sale. I wear this everywhere. It's kind of a staple in my cubicle since I'm always freezing at work. It goes in my day pack on ANY hike too. Warmth plus wicking=amazing.



        The fit is amazing too. Here's how awesome it is... I normally wear a medium in Arcteryx, but the Large was cheaper... so I gambled.. it's definitely bigger but the fit is so flattering that it doesn't actually look big. This means I can throw it over anything and it always fits under my puffy or shell comfortably! I'm only 5'2" and 130 lbs... so the medium would definitely be better, but beggars can't be choosers! :) The back is slightly longer and fits the female shape perfectly. If you wanted a nice cool breeze up your backside, you better look elsewhere.



        Fun features? When it's snowing, I can zip it up all the way and my neck stays warm. The cuffs don't let any air up my sleeves! The hand pockets go "down" versus in towards the zipper, so there's no fear of stuff falling out, plus they keep my hands pretty toasty too. The zippered sleeve pocket is perfect for some cash, a credit card and some chapstick!



        My ONLY complaint is that the hood looks silly for casual wear. I throw my hood up a lot. It's geared to "seal" around the face, so it's definitely functional, just makes me look a little funny.



        I think the real reason I bought this was because I loved the color and the detail/contrast of the colors. I don't know that this year's model looks like this, but I love mine!!



        Favorite Fleece to date

        Great jacket

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

        Love this jacket it does run a little small would buy it again in different colors

        Awkward fit

        • Fit: Runs small

        I'm 5"7 and this jacket was too short and awkwardly fit on my broad shoulders. I wish it fit better, but... negative.

        Perfect Fleece

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

        Arc'teryx once again has made a good product. I love the warmth, fit, and color (have the malachite) of this fleece. I picked this one up because I have a much lighter fleece that wasn't quite working for me at cooler temps. I have worn this fleece in the low 50s/high 40s with a brisk wind and felt completely comfortable. I noticed the reviewer below mentioned she felt the shoulders were a bit narrow. I don't have broad shoulders and didn't have a problem ordering my usual size. However, I do have long arms and was pleased to note that the sleeves on the fleece are long enough. It's also possible that a little bit longer torso would be helpful to keep it under a harness, but I haven't worried about it. So I agree with Tracy Anne, worth every penny.

        High Quality Fleece

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: Runs small

        Arc'teryx uses the best materials. This fleece is really high quality and actually less expensive than comparable jackets.



        Fit: The torso is a little on the short side and shoulders are narrow. This would be an excellent fit for a more petite shape. I tend to have very broad shoulders and by sizing up found a perfect fit.



        Weight: This fleece is on the lighter side, but because its tightly woven is very warm for a lighter fleece.



        Style: Because its so warm for a thinner fleece, its super sleek fitting and looks really nice for casual use. However, its an excellent layer for hiking and skiing.



        Overall, this is an excellent fleece, worth every penny.

        Overtly Covert

        I bought this piece on a complete whim - it was a true impulse buy. I already had a Patagonia Better Sweater (and various other thick/high loft fleeces), but figured "hey what do I have to lose, Arc'teryx is a great company so let's try it!"

        I tried it, and I love it. This has become a crucial part of my layering system come winter and fall as it's incredibly warm and regulates my body temperature extremely well. During the fall it's my go to climbing hoody, and keeps me warm on chilly New England fall days. It's also incredibly soft and there is virtually no pilling, which definitely occurs on the Better Sweater.

        I don't typically go for hooded jackets, but the hood has come in handy in dire, chilly situations. The hood is snug, but not too snug and fits (for me) comfortably under a climbing helmet.

        Per usually in Arc'teryx stuff I take a Small, rather than my normal XS. The sleeves are perfect for layering, and the jacket fits well under my Atom LT.

        I do find that this fleece does get a little stinky after awhile, but then again most synthetic pieces will do that. however it does hand wash very well (as I hate going to the laundromat when I don't need to!)

        I love, love the color - which despite me dripping coffee and getting other grime on it has faired very well! All the stains have washed out (with a little extra stain stick help), which I was not expecting to happen.

        If you're debating between the Covert hoody and Better Sweater/any other similar fleece - go for Covert! There's truly no comparing. I wish I had 5 more of these things!
