Arc'teryx Covert Cardigan Review from Peter Glenn



hi i'm laura from peterglenn.com and this is the Arc'teryx covert cardigan for men for 2012 this is going to be a mid layer piece it would also function as a standalone jacket over regular clothes you know in milder weather what's awesome about this piece is that it's a really unique mid layer instead of just a basic fleece you know that you pretty much only use for skiing this is really well-made it's really nice-looking and it's really versatile what makes this piece such a good performer on the mountain is the fabric it's a very technical fabric this is Polartec thermal probe lease but it's actually put together in a sweater knit so even though it doesn't look like fleece it has the same thermal efficiency properties of a fleece it's gonna keep you very warm you don't need too much of it to keep warm and it's also very breathable so it's not going to inhibit your layering system at all Arc'teryx always uses very technical fabrics and really focuses on breathability so you know that when you're wearing in our Tareq's mid layer you're going to get a great piece that really works with the rest of your system to keep you comfortable the back of this the inside is done in a mesh fabric and that's going to help to pull moisture away from your body so it doesn't make you cold it gets out through the fabrics and you know gets out into the air and away from you there are some great convenience features on this piece first of all you get pockets of course if you're gonna wear this piece of over everyday clothes as a regular jacket you're gonna need the pockets to stick things like your cell phone inside and they're also lined in a really soft furry fabric so that it keeps your hands warm as well I'm and then you get an extra pocket on the sleeve so you're going to be able to stick things in there and get again just a little bit of extra storage the way that the fabric is knit is actually a great feature of this jacket it makes it more versatile because it looks like a sweater and it looks like a more kind of refined piece you can go out in town afterwards with off without having to make a full change something that you probably wouldn't be able to do in just a regular pullover fleece this jacket has stretch elastic material at the hem and at the cuffs and what that does is it helps it keep it just a little bit closer to your body and prevent cold air from getting up inside the covert cardigan is somewhat of a relaxed fit it's going to be easy to get on over top of things because it's designed for layering but if you've worn Arc'teryx before you know that their fits tend to be kind of athletic a little bit closer to the body so that's something to keep in mind however I have ordered this for a bunch of people that I know and I've always ordered the true size you know if it's large its large if it's medium its medium so you can feel safe in ordering your true size this piece is also pretty strongly articulated it's one of the things that Arc'teryx does really well they put it together in a very ergonomically correct way so that when you wear it and when you move it feels comfortable and natural and you know not restrictive at all overall this is definitely an extremely functional mid layer and definitely extra versatile because you can wear it on the snow and off the snow it's very breathable very comfortable and definitely is going to keep you warm thanks for watching and check out peterglenn.com for all of your favorite Arc'teryx ski wear
