Joseph Mumauwrote a review of Arc'teryx Covert Vest - Men's on December 18, 2008
I agree the collar doesn't want to stay folded down, but other than that there is not a lot to quibble about. The styling is more current than quirky, but the real appeal is in the details, and this vest offers more than most. The cloth trim on the outside of the pockets feels much sturdier than the typical fleece vest. The inside is lined (padded?) with a material that I assume is meant to wick moisture while maintaining warmth. Unzipping the pockets allows for venting of the torso. Wearing this under a light shell while hiking in low 20 degree temps was not a problem - no chills, and no overheating while pumping up the hills. I always thought of fleece as a poor man's insulator, but Arcteryx has changed my mind.
