The 686 Black Magic Insulated Overalls give you that classic bib pants look with a tailored fit. Waterproof and breathable 2-Layer InfiDRY® fabric and Beamis® taping keeps you dry, and 40g insulation in the knees and seat keep you warm. Mesh-lined inner leg vents quickly dissipate heat, and the boot gaiters comes with gussets and a hooks for easily going over your boots and keeping them secure. Waterproof YKK® zippers on the pockets ensure that your phone and other gadgets stay safe and dry. Adjustable shoulder straps and a waist gusset gives you a perfect fit every time.
Critically Taped - On outerwear with critically taped seams you only have taping at the key points where potential leakage can occur. This is acceptable, or even advantageous if you live in a dry climate, if you're more concerned with breathability than dealing with wet weather then outerwear featuring critically taped seams is the way to go.
Polyester Fill - Polyester insulation may not be as warm or light as down, but it's far easier to clean and performs better in wet conditions. If cost is a concern or you live in a wet climate then polyester insulation might be your best option.
Synthetic insulation is measured in grams, so a jacket with a 80g rating simply means that a 1 meter by 1 meter piece of that particular jacket's insulation weighs 80 grams. The higher the rating, the warmer the outerwear.
Bemis® Seam Tape - All 686 taped seams feature Bemis branded taping to further ensure quality workmanship and guaranteed waterproofing.
Cordura Cuff Guard - Cordura reinforced heel protection at the bottom inside lining of snow pants.
Horseshoe Hem - The upward curved shape along the back pant leg hem opening.
InfiDRY® Fabric Construction - 686 InfiDRY® fabric is perfect for daily use in a wide range of conditions. Specialty fabrics are laminated and bonded to a Polyurethane (PU) InfiDRY® membrane on the underside of the fabric. This membrane blocks water and snow from entering your garment, yet is hydrophilic on the inside - attracting any moisture inside your jacket (sweat) and moving it through to the outside of the fabric where it is able to evaporate, thus keeping you both dry and warm.
For further protection, the laminated fabric is then coated on the exterior with a water resistant DWR coating to repel snow and water from penetrating the fabric. This creates a superior fabric with a one-way portal for moisture that is virtually impenetrable from the outside, yet allows your body’s sweat to evaporate and pass through the fabric from the inside out creating a more comfortable riding experience.
