I Very Happy with the Jacket

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I am a 5'11" male, skinny to athletic build and longer arms (usually have to buy a large long sleeve shirt so the sleeves are not too short) and the medium fits me very well. The jacket it warm and comfortable. I am ended up with the acid wash denim (looks more like midnight blue than it does denim) and it looks much better than I was expecting. I wanted the grey/cyan one but it was sold out. I am lucky because I saw this jacket on the slopes and the blue looks very strange almost like plastic, the denim is very nice and works well with any color snow pants although I would suggest a lighter color so you can be seen. I only wish that there was another pocket that would secure without coming loose for my pass/lift ticket/wallet via zipper or button. The only pocket that is this was is the media pocket and my wallet does not fit there. This jacket it priced very well at the full price and I would suggest this to a friend.

Responded on

I have the grey/cyan and I love the look, I do not think any thing on this jacket looks like plastic. I agree though that it is a great jacket, performs very well and does everything you could ask for it to do. 686 makes great products, once I need new pants I will be trying a pair of theirs out for sure.
