686 Outerwear & Technical Apparel
686 was established in 1992 with a goal to create products to enhance your on and off-mountain experiences. 686 founder, Michael Akira West, grew up skateboarding in southern California where his love for skating led into snowboarding after becoming an instructor at Big Bear Resort. It was there that he would start to blend his career and passion.
686 remains independently owned and strives to remain true to brand roots with continuous technical innovation in materials. From detachable layering systems to thermal targeting insulation technology, 686 is on the cutting-edge of outdoor apparel and outerwear.
