The 686 GORE-TEX® GT Jacket gives you ultimate waterproofing, breathability, and durability. Combining GORE-TEX® technology with DWR coated Nylon fabric all sealed with GORE-SEAM® taping ensures that water wont seep in. The removable powder skirt adjusts and stretches for a snug fit, and the helmet compatible hood has an adjustable cinch cord. Underarm vents quickly expel heat and the Pant Jacket Connect™ System holds your powder skirt in place, keeping the snow out. Time to gear up with a jacket that will keep you warm, dry, and stylish no matter what season it is.
GORE-TEX® - GORE-TEX® fabric is incredibly durable, waterproof, breathable, and totally windproof. A single square inch of this fabric contains 9 billion microscopic pores—each 20,000 times smaller than a raindrop, but 700 times larger than a molecule of water vapor. Water can’t pass through the fabric, yet perspiration escapes with ease. You’ll find this next level molecular construction on all GORE-TEX fabrics.
Fully Taped - Having outerwear with fully taped seams means that on the inside of the jacket all the seams are covered in tape to provide the most effective waterproofing. It can be considered a key feature if you live in a wet climate or are planning on wearing the jacket during heavy rains. The downside is that due to the full taping there is less breathability than you'd experience with critically taped seams.
Articulated Fit - Engineered to explore. Ergonomically engineered fits are designed to work with your body as you explore the backcountry, sending it off your favorite park jump or just ripping around the resort.
