There is much to love of the Arc'Teryx Covert Hoody. I absolutely love the fit, the soft fabric, the warmth, the color.
It isn't a lint magnet like many of my other fleeces, and just looks nicer than traditional fleece. But don't mistake it for a softshell or great outer layer. As described, it has no wind protection. I just layer a light shell over it for those days. I could easily wear mine every day and get tons of compliments on it.
