The brand name has now become synonymous with innovative, forward-thinking snowboarding jackets, outerwear and technical apparel inspired by the outdoors and mountain culture.

Their products include down jackets, insulated snow pants, base layers, 3-in-1 jackets, hoodies and beanies.

686 also has a unique thermal rating system that makes choosing the perfect coat, gloves or pants for your specific needs easy.
