    Except for my really heavy "below zero" winter parka, all of my outer garments have snap closure so they can be ripped open. I voted never because I almost never wear the parka.

    I normally I just wear a t-shirt. But now the snow is here so a jacket is in order. No problem drawing though, as I carry IWB at 1:00. Simply lift and draw.

    I do at almost all times wear a button up over a t-shirt, or a jacket/coat of some sorts, but I never button / zip them.

    Zip up jacket. Never a hood. Shirts stick out from jacket bottom so I grab my shirt and lift up to draw. No issues.

    Depends on the weather. If it's warm, a T-shirt with an unbuttoned dress shirt over that.
    If it's cold, I like hooded sweatshirts. They're comfortable as heck and make great cover garments.
    Zip-up jackets when I want to look presentable, or at work
    Good poll.

    Peace,

    I almost always have a leather vest on (snaps) in cool or cold weather, or a light cloth unbuttoned cover jacket or shirt in warm or hot weather.

What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

    I may wear a cover shirt during the really cold weather down here...that 50' weather is a killer...(80' today)

    Most of the time it's just a colored T-shirt over a 'wife beater'...

    Always a vest, no matter the season. Most have buttons, but I don't ever button them up. My winter coat has buttons also, but I just button one up near the top if it's particularly cold and windy. I don't have any problem reaching my holster that way.

    Most all the time, yes. In the summer, it is generally a t-shirt with a button up casual shirt over it, partially buttoned. In the winter it's generally a fleece or hoody or a winter coat. I buy all 95% of my clothes with "Will I be able to conceal with this?" on my mind.

    I don't worry about the cover garment because I carry a BUG in my pocket. This is one of the many reasons why I carry a BUG, no matter the weather.

    Just when it's cold out.

    Blue jeans and a t-shirt most of the time!

    Here in Western Washington I sometimes do and sometimes do not wear a garment of this type in any of the conditions described in your poll.

    T shirts, sweaters, sweat shirts, windbreakers, Ex Officio Air Strip shirts -- the usual.
