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.

- 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.
