Inspired by the visionaries who set their sights on outer space, this solar reflective jacket is based around Pantone 286 that represents interplanetary exploration in the infamous “meatball” logo. Iconic astronaut branding, a hood gusset, and ample pockets complete the package.
At 686 we understand that sustainability is not a destination but a way of behaving that aims to lessen our impact on the planet. For us, however, sustainability does not end there. We are committed to the fair and equitable treatment of everyone along our supply chain. Our commitment to people and the planet guides us.

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.
This creates a packable system to keep gear in order when not in use. It’s simple: the jacket is folded, rolled, and then the hood bungy tightens around the bundle to keep it that way. This creates organization and increases room in your pack. At the end of the day, you have a bonus roll to be used as a cushion, padding, or pillow.
Developed around your body in motion, our exclusive Thermagraph® technology places separate zones of insulation and breathability strategically throughout your jacket or pants. These zones work together to create an ultra-lightweight, warm, and highly breathable lining that increases versatility of your jacket and pants. Insulation zones are placed where your body needs warmth the most - your vital organs, spine, knees, and seat are surrounded by breathable, moisture wicking mesh to allow for the utmost moisture evaporation and body temperature regulation.
I really do like this jacket. It's comfortable, warm, and truly functional. It seems like it'll last me several seasons on the mountain!
