Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nassty new fabric and a peculiar new fit My partner and I have been buying Coverts for years and probably have 8 or 9 in total. We loved them. Sadly the latest Fall '14 version means that we won't be buying them again. The new fabric is horrible - very clingy - such that it is virtually impossible to get your arms into the sleeves. Bring back Polartec! Having said that, the recent Polartec fabrics and Chinese manufacture have brought a notable deterioration in quality. The cut of the new Covert is completely different to that of old - such that it looks like you are wearing a fleece with Dynasty shoulder-pads. What were they thinking of? To use a cliche: Covert has gone from Hero to Zero.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent garment, great warmth & relaxed fit! This covert cardigan is very warm, serving as a perfect mid layer on cold days, and an outer layer on cool days. It is great for hiking, skiing and other outdoor activities. This cardigan is constructed with impeccable craftsmanship, and is also stylish. The laminated pocket zippers are rugged and should provide for long term wear. A wide range of movement is provided by the relaxed fit. I now have three of these cardigans and would not give them up. I highly recommend this garment for anyone who is serious about outdoor activities, wants to keep warm and is willing to pay the price for quality workmanship.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable Fleece Jacket Was a little hesitant to buy this jacket after hearing poor reviews of the new fabric material, but was pleasantly surprised when the jacket arrived. I don't know what the material used to be like but I am quite happy with what Arcteryx has done. The material is soft and warm inside while looking quite classy outside. I purchased the Kyanos and it looks great. I go back and forth between M and L for arcteryx products but the M was perfect for me at 188cm and about 78kg. Really nice cut. Its definitely more of a casual use jacket, but could certainly be used for hiking and the backcountry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice jacket but quality seems to depend on colour/gender. The men's covert cardigan in olive bought a couple years ago was nice and warm, but unfortunately the version I had the fabric pilled up over much of the jacket, and wasn't what I expected. My wife's women's version in black was much better quality and had no such problems. Not sure if they were manufactured at same time or place. Also, women's gender specific pattern looks so much nicer as it's very form fitting. My men's covert crew sweater in black also was perfect and has lasted several years (too bad it's been discontinued, and the closest thing is the covert zip).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mid Layer and Casual Jacket I originally bought this jacket as a mid layer when I first switched to a shell outer jacket. However, the discrete bird logo on the arm means that it functions just as well as a casual urban jacket. I think that the Polartec Thermal Pro Knit material is the softest out of all my jackets, which adds to its feeling of warmth. The jacket comes up quite large, when compared to my other medium and small jackets, so a definite try before you buy, if you can. I have the black jacket, mainly due to the very limited number of colours imported into the United Kingdom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really love the pullover sorry that it has been discontinued I own a 6 year old version of the pullover in black and I wear it almost everyday in the winter. I haven't used this as a technical piece, but as an everyday sweater for work and a warm mid layer it has served me very well. The fabric has pilled to a certain degree, but it isn't too bad. I didn't realize that the pullover had discontinued when I purchased a 2nd one this summer, also in black, but now I am glad that I did.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as they used to be A decent looking everyday-use fleee. Great warmth for everyday use, for hiking I prefer a fleece like Delta SV jacket. The quality 5 years ago just seemed better. Now the material looks abused after a few months. The sleeve length is also very short. (The Caliber Cardigan fits much better in my opinion)

Chest / Bust - Measure around your chest / bust, holding the measuring tape under your armpit.

Waist - Measure around the natural waist, which is often the narrowest part of your waist.

Hip - Measure around your hips at the widest part.

Sleeve Length - With your arms in a slightly bent position, measure from the center of the back of your neck, along the length of your arm, to the wrist.

Inseam / Pant Length - From a standing position, measure from your crotch to your ankle.

Head Circumference - Measure the full circumference around the widest part of your head.

Hand Length - Measure from the tip of your middle finger to the base of the palm.

Hand Width - Measure the circumference of your hand around the knuckles, excluding the thumb.

• Please note that all the info provided above refers to body measurements, and NOT the dimensions of the garment.


Next to Skin Fit - These snugly-fitting garments are made with stretch fabrics to fit next to the skin to enhance moisture management and thermal efficiency. Garments in this fit category when constructed using Arc'teryx's heavier-weight AR and SV fabrics also perform very well as mid layer pieces, and users should consider selecting a larger size to accommodate a base layer underneath if the intention is to use this layering system as a mid layer option.

Trim Fit - Trim-fitted garments share the motion-friendly traits with Arc'teryx "Athletic" fit garments, but are patterned with lower volume for reduced bulk. These close-fitting pieces layer well under other garments.

Athletic Fit - This is the "Arc'teryx Standard" fit. These complete patterns utilize anatomical shaping and gussets to enhance motion by minimizing excess bulk. Easy layering under or over each item extends seasonal versatility and comfort.

Relaxed Fit - Relaxed fit garments rely on higher volume patterns and a reduced amount of articulation to offer roomy mobility.

Expedition Fit - Cut roomier than the Arc'teryx Athletic fit and suitable for winter/extreme conditions, Expedition (XPD) fit garments are cut larger to accommodate multiple layers without binding or restricting movement.

• You can find the fit type and additional fit info for Arc'teryx styles in the product description FEATURES and SPECIFICATIONS.
