The Arc’teryx Covert has been around for a couple of seasons now, but it remains one of our favorite Polartec garments. Featuring warm, but lightweight Polartec® Thermal Pro® fabric, the Covert is popular because it’s so versatile. It works great as an active midlayer or a warm day outerlayer for skiing, biking, hiking….whatever. But mostly, I see people wearing it as a simple but stylish sweater at work, out to dinner, etc.
The Gear Junkie’s Ryan Dionne has this review of the Covert. Ryan is from Boulder where I’ve seen people were Arc’teryx like it’s their uniform. Ryan was no exception and apparently, he’s barely taken it off in the past three months. Good thing the Covert is machine washable!
