    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.

    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.
