This was supposed to be a clothing investment. I bought it because it was made in Canada - and I use this type of clothing a lot. I like to buy quality gear rather than having lots of crap.

The zipper irritated by chin. After only one wash I noted some pilling. After 3-5 washes the fabric was annoyingly pilly! I hate pilling- it makes stuff look cheap.

This was expensive (even on sale) and I expected way better quality. I brought it back and Arc'teryx is replacing it with something similar. I can't be bothered shopping around so I'll take what they recommend. I don't have time to shop - I don't live in town and have to drive a long way to buy anything so I do my research first.

I am sooo disappointed. I hate shopping and hoped that this jacket would work for me for a long time. grrrrr


Great fit and style, but not as warm as expected.

Great fit and style, but not as warm as expected. Does a poor job of keeping wind out -- second or third layer needed even in moderate weather to stay warm.

The Arc'teryx Women's Covert Fleece Hooded Jacket might look like wool, but it's made of heathered Alpenex fleece for lightweight and versatile comfort. It breathes well and dries quickly and, like most synthetics, is easy to keep clean so you can wear it on longer trips without worrying about that coffee stain you acquired five minutes after leaving the house. Spending as much time in town as in the mountains' Arc'teryx gave the Covert a trim, hip-length cut for a flattering look when you're strolling down the street or heading to class, and added color-contrasted bindings on the hem, cuffs, and hood for style and durability. Zippered laminated hand pockets keep your fingers warm and dry, and a sleeve pocket can be used to hold your phone or ski pass, if you're layering the Covert under a shell.
