686 and Motörhead have come together to bring you this jacket because metal is isn't only for the park. InfiDry® fabric with critically taped seams and a DWR coating give you breathable and waterproof protection. Warm polyester insulation keeps you toasty, and Air-flo™ mesh arm pit vents let you cool off quickly if you get overheated. The adjustable hood is removable, and the adjustable powder skirt attaches to your snow pants for a secure fit. Multiple pockets keep your gadgets secure, including a dual access media audio pocket with audio cord outlet and tangle free headphone loops, so you can listen to Motörhead while you mash down the mountain.
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.
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.
Media Pocket - A jacket lining pocket for one's music playing device with two points of entry being 1) its internal zipper opening or 2) its exterior welt opening.
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.
