The first minimalist tech jacket 686 ever produced from the era of “wide everything” that was heavily inspired by the early park days at Big Bear. An era that went on to define snowboarding itself. It’s a classic design and, like all the early pieces, made to pull double duty both on and off-hill. Built true to original specs we snuck the OG Jib Wear 686 M.W logo in there as a nod to the era that created us.
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.
DWR (Durable Water Repellency) coating is the outermost finish applied to exclusive 686 fabrics increasing their contact angle and thus repelling water while maintaining high breathability. DWR also helps repel stains and oils that can damage your garment's surface.
