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.


infiLOFT™ - Circular-like filament groupings individually retain heat yet provide the air movement between each group. The end result is moisture resistance, loft-like feel with superior lightweight warmth.

Insulation Rating (g)

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.

Body: 80, Sleeves: 60, Hood: 40

Bemis® Seam Tape - All 686 taped seams feature Bemis® branded taping to further ensure quality workmanship.

InfiDRY® 2-Layer Construction - Using specialty fabrics and modern lamination techniques InfiDRY® fabrics are layered in a way that provides 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. Helps to keep you warm and dry from the inside out.

Death Grip Adjustable Cuffs - 2-way adjustable cuff tabs worn around the thumb or wrist.

686 Athena Insulated Jacket - vintage navy kaleidoscope
Very comfortable and roomy. Allows for lots of layers underneath. Sleeves are nice and long and the fabric colors are true to the description.

686 Athena Insulated Jacket - vintage navy kaleidoscope
Lots of Pockets and have tons of space. I love the larger hood for helmets. Warm and easy to layer underneath. Windproof and waterproof. Very comfortable and cute. For size reference I’m 5’3”, 140lbs, athletic build. The small fit but was a little tight in the shoulders and hips so went with the larger size.
