The Hydrastash® Reservoir Insulated jacket contains a built-in hydration system, providing 25oz of hands free hydration without needing to carry a water bottle or a backpack. Designed around a body in motion, the Hydrastash® system comfortably fits tightly around your center of gravity, removing the water weight around your shoulders, and reducing the sloshing of the water. InfiDry® fabric with fully taped Bemis® seams and YKK® AquaGuard® water resistant zippers provide a breathable waterproof barrier against the elements. Warm polyester filling insulates your body and keeps the water in the reservoir from freezing. Adjustable cuffs, and hood give you a custom fit, and wrist gaiters make any glove easily integrate with the jacket. Push your limits while staying warm and hydrated in the Hydrastash® Reservoir Insulated jacket from 686.
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.
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.
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.

Bemis® Seam Tape - All 686 taped seams feature Bemis® branded taping to further ensure quality workmanship and guaranteed waterproofing.
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.
Hydrastash® Built-In Hydration System - Patent Pending Reservoir Powder Skirt -
The patent pending design securely holds a water reservoir in a newly designed powder skirt system. The stretch connection band increases mobility and the new 3x2 Multiple Closure System provides more closure options for different body types.
Anti-Microbial .75L Reservoir (BPA Free) -
The custom designed, anti-microbial, slim reservoir is taste free, holds hot or cold fluids and is designed to fit around your waist for optimum balance. Anti-Slosh dams are engineered throughout to prevent motion when fluid is low and the entire reservoir is guaranteed not to break under stress.
Easy Fill Waterproof Roll Top Opening -
After a year of testing, 686 found the safe and secure roll top design the ideal solution to filling and cleaning your reservoir. You can remove your reservoir fully or partially from your jacket to fill. It's so strong, 686 even ran it over with a car during testing and it didn't open.
Patent Pending Microbite™ Valve (BPA Free) -
In order to create the ultimate experience, 686 designed the slimmest bite valve currently available on the market. The Microbite™ Valve is self sealing when stressed with internal pressure and has a comparable flow rate to standard bite valves twice its size.
Micro-Tubing (BPA Free) -
This slim, lightweight and highly flexible tubing allows your jacket to move as freely as you do. Its length can be easily customized to the user and cleaning is a breeze with the Hydrastash® cleaning kit.
Engineered Body Wrap Fit -
The entire system is engineered to fit tightly around your center of gravity, providing unmatched balance and reducing any swinging effect of the fluid weight.
Internal Reservoir Stretch Suspension Straps -
Located on each end of the powder skirt, the internal reservoir stretch suspension straps secure the reservoir close to your body for optimum balance at all times. They also suspend the reservoir in the patent pending powder skirt to remove a large amount of effective fluid weight when full.
Zippered Easy Access Stretch Channel -
A full zip stretch channel runs from the reservoir pocket to the Microbite™ valve for easy access. Insulation on the exterior of the channel and breathable inner material effectively traps your body heat in the channel and provides extra protection against freezing.
Vader Vent at Collar - A jacket hood with a more technically constructed laminated and perforated front collar venting system.
YKK® AquaGuard Waterproof Zippers - The world's most trusted waterproof zipper. YKK AquaGuard zippers ensure smooth movement and water resistance out in the elements.
Insulated Lycra® Wrist Gaiters - Soft, stretchy insulated Lycra® fends off the cold without adding bulk or restricting movement.
Jacket to Pant Interface - Connect your jacket to your pants for better protection from the elements.
