The 686 Stretch GORE-TEX 3® SMARTY® 3-in-1 Weapon jacket can be worn three ways thanks to a removable, integrated liner jacket. You can wear the shell alone as a breathable waterproof barrier, you can wear the insulated SMARTY® liner alone as a comfortable quilted fleece insulated jacket, or you can wear them together for utmost warmth and weather protection. GORE-TEX® membrane provides ultimate breathable, waterproof and windproof protection with fully taped GORE-TEX® seams, the water is not finding its way in. Underarm vents quickly release heat and the adjustable powder skirt connects to your snow pants for secure integration. A strategic array of pockets keeps everything organized and accessible without cluttering the jacket's sleek style. Also included in the jacket is a RECCO® reflector chip to help rescue crews locate you in case you get lost. Adaptable for changing conditions, the GORE-TEX SMARTY® 3-in-1 Weapon jacket is a good investment that will last multiple seasons.

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.
RECCO® - RECCO® is an advanced avalanche rescue system hidden in this outerwear that will save your butt when you need it. RECCO® is utilized by more than 700 rescue organizations worldwide to assist in the efficient location of burials. RECCO® technology enables rapid directional pinpointing of a victim's precise location using harmonic radar. Hopefully you'll never have to use it, but if you do you'll be glad it's there.
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.
Primaloft Eco® - Primaloft Eco® is comprised of post consumer recycled materials that provide immediate warmth without the bulk. Fine fibers mimic the compressibility of goose down and are breathable, allowing moisture vapor to be transported through the fibers and away from your skin.
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.

No-Rise sleeve cap design
GORE-SEAM® Tape - Supported by reliable Gore equipment and expertise, this unique tape ensures that every seam and stitch hole is sealed. All GORE-TEX® jackets and pants are fully taped exclusively with GORE-SEAM® tape.
SMARTY® Layering System - A world-renowned detachable lining system that allows you to wear the garment in 3 different ways:
1) Keep the liner attached to its shell component for extra insulation and warmth
2) Zip the liner out so you can chill comfortably indoors
3) Wear the shell garment by itself for warmer, transitional weather

Jacket to Pant Interface - Connect your jacket to your pants for better protection from the elements.
DWR Coating - A Durable Water Resistant finish applied to the exterior of the garment.
