686 offers a full line of technical snowboarding winter apparel, jackets and pants.
686 snowboarding jackets and pants are created with the goal of pushing current boundaries of design and construction. Founded by Michael Akira West, 686 was born in and around Big Bear, CA creating unique apparel based around the southern California snowboard scene.
Many rumors are out there regarding the meaning of the name “686”, but 686 stems from personal dates and numbers in West's life that all merged together at the perfect time. The brand name has now become synonymous with innovative, forward thinking snowboarding jackets, outerwear and technical apparel inspired by the outdoors and mountain culture.
