Strategic Body-Mapped Insulation & Breathability

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.

600 powerfill 90/10 100% Responsible Down or Hyperfresh™ Insulation zones are placed where your body needs warmth the most - your vital organs, spine, knees and seat and are surrounded by a sea of breathable moisture wicking mesh to allow for the utmost moisture evaporation and body temperature regulation.

Thermal Rating

The 686 Thermal Rating makes it easier to choose your perfect jacket, pant and glove for specific conditions. Each thermal rating is optimized for a varying range of conditions and can be combined with 686 mid layers to add or subtract warmth as needed.


Smarty® Technology

The Original, Trademarked 3-in-1 Detachable Layering System.

Since its inception over 20 years ago, 686 SMARTY® 3-in-1 technology has set the integrated layering standard for the outerwear industry, adding premium versatility and value to jackets and pants.

For Winter 2017, every SMARTY® 3-in-1 jacket and pant has been updated with all new SMARTY® Primaloft® or fleece liner jackets or pants that are more versatile than ever before.

Every SMARTY® combination is specifically designed so that the shell and detachable liner work in unison to provide the ultimate experience and value. You can wear your garment in multiple ways:

  1. Shell + detachable layer for integrated insulation on the coldest of days.
  2. Shell only for moderate days.
  3. Detachable layer only for après, around the house, on the streets or for warm days on the hill.


The World's First Built-In Hydration System.
