in DepthI wore this on a recent hike on top of a light SmartWool first layer. Over the top of these I had my Mountain Hardwear Windstopper Tech Jacket. Even with temperatures in the high 20's to mid 30's this combination was too warm! I shed the jacket and wore the Covert as an outer layer. Although it doesn't block the wind, I was still comfortable even at the summit of Hunter. The Covert looks great and could be worn around town as a casual item. THe outside looks like a knit sweater and it is lined with fleece. The construction is all quality like most Arc'teryx items. I bought it on sale since the full retail price is SKY HIGH.
