The S-86 Insulated jacket is a modern take on a classic military silhouette, and outfitted for all of your snow adventure needs. InfiDRY® fabric in combination with fully taped Bemis® seams and a DWR finish, ensures that water wont seep in. The helmet compatible hood and removable powder skirt adjust for a custom fit, and the Pant Jacket Connect™ System keeps your jacket and powder skirt firmly in place. Under arm vents quickly expel heat and cuff gaiters make it easy to integrate any snow glove or mitt. Time to gear up with a jacket that will keep you warm, dry, and stylish no matter what season it is.
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.
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.
Tailored Fit - Tailored to rock. 686's slimmest fits is designed to provide a slim street styled fit while still offering enough room for layering and proper movement when shredding.
Tailored body and sleeves.
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.
Death Grip Adjustable Cuffs - 2-way adjustable cuff tabs worn around the thumb or wrist.
Drop Tail - A drop tail helps prevent snow from sliding up your back.
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.
