The 686 LIGHTBEAM INSULATED W is a women's snowboarding jacket that is all about action and function.
Beyond its modern fit that allows for easy layering, this riding jacket provides effective protection from winter weather and cold thanks to its double-layer infiDRY membrane construction with good waterproof and breathable properties (10,000/10,000), water-repellent treatment and fully taped seams. This way, external humidity does not penetrate the interior, while body heat is preserved thanks to the light and cozy infiLOFT insulation, which is judiciously distributed according to the different parts of the body to guarantee perfect ease of movement.
In addition to the system that allows this jacket to be connected to all compatible pants, this model adds many functional details to facilitate time spent on the snow.
In the 80s, Mickael Akira Ouest mounted for the first time on a skateboard and found his pleasure. Until 1985 when a friend introduced him to snowboarding. Immediately passionate, it rippled on the local mountain in Big Bear. He understood very quickly that he had nothing to lose by engaging in a project during this period apart from finishing his studies at the University of Southern California. On November 13, 1992, the 686 company of technical clothing was created. This figure is a reminder of a symbolic date for its creator Mickael (June 6,1986) and the sum of the three digits are equal to the age he had when he created the brand (20 years old). The concept was to create technical and innovative products while respecting the fashion of the time inspired by the very culture of Los Angeles.
