686 exclusive infiDRY® waterproof and breathable fabric fuses our specifically engineered signature fabrics with multiple levels of elemental protection to keep you dry, no matter how bad the conditions get. Every inch of infiDRY® fabric meets strict 686 specifications and endures countless hours of team testing to ensure the utmost waterproofing, breathability and durability. All infiDRY® fabric can sustain multiple washings with a specially formulated outerwear detergent like Nikwax Tech Wash.
The seams where pieces of fabric are brought together are the most likely spot for moisture to intrude into a garment. The seam taping process prevents this by making the seams as waterproof as their surrounding fabric. Seams in 686 garments can be fully taped throughout the garment or taped only at critical areas to further ensure quality workmanship and guarantee waterproofing.
A lightweight insulation made of circular-like filament groupings that individually retain heat yet provide air movement between each group. The result is moisture resistance with a loft-like feel for superior warmth.
Solid jacket. As a beginner i spent most of the day falling on my back and it kept me warm and dry. The fit is on the looser side but that was perfect for me.
