Attractive and great colors
I have three of the covert cardigans-purpura, black and celadron..I love the fact that they actually fit me(100# and 4'11"). They are very stylish and fit well underneath a shell. The fit for me is more form-fitted so they are low profile enough to go underneath my shell jackets. They are not wind resistant nor windproof so if it is windy out you will need a windproof shell over the top. I have not washed them more than once thus far so I cannot attest to the "piling issue" others have experienced. Since they are guaranteed for life they can be sent back to Arc Teryx for warranty work.
