Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor quality, Pills immediately The covert cardigan fit is very flattering, and looks good on. This was a plus since I loved the look of another competing fleece sweater, the better sweater, but the fit was not flattering. However, after just owning this 3 weeks, it began to pill horribly below the arms. I only washed it on gentle cycle without drying it. For something that costs so much, having an article of clothing pill this quickly and easily is not acceptable. The quality did not seem to be high on this product, which I was surprised about since so many people have raved to me about this brand. Alas, still looking for the perfect fleece sweater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and beautiful! I wasn't looking for a new jacket, but when I saw this one in the store, I couldn't take my eyes off of it. I got the Azulene color (which is basically royal blue), and it is stunning. It is Arc'teryx usual quality, so you know it's well made and will last forever. When I tried it on, I was hooked. I got it on sale, so that was a definitely plus. I have hardly taken it off since I've had it. I've been running errands, walking my dog, just doing outdoor chores - it feels so comfortable and warm and cozy. I'm sad the weather is warming up, because I want to wear it every day. I happen to have recently purchased an Arc-teryx zip top for hiking/skiing - same color. So I'm not only well layered - I'm stylin'! Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great versatile outerwear I have the hoodie in this Arc'teryx line and decided to get the sweater cardigan fleece jacket in a different color. On sale it was an incredible value! The workmanship is excellent and my other garment has held up really well so I had no reservations about purchasing this jacket. It's listed as a trim fit, which means it has less bulk and can be layered. I think it fits best with a light t-shirt or base layer underneath but anything more likely would feel too snug. I have "curves" so was concerned about looking too chunky but was pleased with the result. These garments are great for layering, especially in So CA or Southwest conditions when the nights are cool or on a hike at elevation and wanting something on besides a t-shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits my petite figure like a glove! This is the 2nd Covert jacket that I have purchased. I acquired my first raspberry colored Covert hoody a few years ago at my local athletic store and decided to get the Covert Cardigan when I saw it online at an athletic retailer. I am difficult to fit because I have the build of a gymnast. I am 5'2" 100 pounds, with an athletic build. I received my beautiful blue jacket today and it is absolutely beautiful!!! Please keep making these great products and I'll buy more!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Near Perfect The color drew me to the Arc'teryx rack. The fabric is nicer than Patagonia's, the details all thought through--the jacket I needed. Alas, I am between Medium and Large. I envy those who conform to this fit model!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Commuter Wear This is a very comfortable top to wear anywhere I'm going. This is the first time I have bought an Arcteryx top. The fit, finish and the pink tulip color are top notch. I happened upon this sweater top when I was walking in DC in August. Even though it was summer I could not resist the gorgeous color. Usually every winter top is in a muted tone but this one caught my eye and I was hooked. My husband also bought a lightweight jacket because he does not like heavy winter jackets. The fit and finish is also great. He has not worn his as yet but it's very soft and looks quite well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No complaints I bought my first fleece when I visited Vancouver some years ago. Since then, I have bought a further two as I love the styling and attention to detail. It is cosy and warm and the quality, finsh, colour choice etc, are excellent and I have no complaints at all. The delivery time was also very speedy. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits much better than the Patagonia version! I bought this jacket on a whim. I've always loved the look of Patagonia's Better Sweater zip up but the sizing wasn't right. Tried this on and fell in love. This is my first Arc'teryx article of clothing and I don't think it will be the last. Perfect for layering or wearing on its own.

Questions & Answers

Pilling was mentioned as a problem by one reviewer. Is there any more information about that?

Asked by: TNhiker
I've owned a covert jacket for years and have had the same problem-pilling form the get go.  Love the fit and it wears well but sadly the material does pill! I would think that deficit should have bee addressed by Arc'teryx by now!
