I have ridden the 686 Hydra jacket for 3 seasons. 1 season on the east coast and 2 in Colorado. So I have used it in many different conditions and it performs really well in all of them! It comes with 2-Layer infiDRY® 20K Stretch Fabric + DWR water-resistant coating. On a warmer sunny day, you can rock just a... Read more
Ideal for
  • A versatile outer later that works in lots of temps
  • All the features needed in a good all condition jacket. Great pockets, dual zipper, powder skirt, big hood and Thermagraph insulation pads throughout.
  • This is a very comfortable jacket with great mobility even with a wider chest frame
Not ideal for
  • If the local climate is very wet and rainy look into some gor tex jacket options
  • If a more tailored, fitted jacket is preferred this may not be the best choice

The 686 Hydra Thermagraph jacket is a fantastic all-around jacket that is suitable for practically anyone. With its 20K infiDRY weatherproofing, it is very waterproof and windproof while remaining breathable and comfortable. I wore this jacket in 50 mph winds and felt it underneath. It has targeted insulation to help keep the important areas warm. It is not the most... Read more
Ideal for
  • Great Wind proofing and Waterproofing
  • Cool style with face shield and off center zip
  • Breathable and has pit zips for those warm days
Not ideal for
  • The corner of the zip/face shield can hit the face when not zipped up all the way
  • Not the warmest by itself, but great for layering

I have been a long time fan of Gore Tex but I was so pleased with how well 686s waterproofing has held up! The insulated body... Read more

I casually inquired about skis with Nate after getting tired of my rentals. Within 10 minutes, he had found me a pair with bindings that would beat the cost of renting in less than 2 years. Nate had all the answers to my questions about "Why this ski and not that ski?" and made me feel super confident in my purchase.

I've been wanting to buy ski gear for a while now, but honestly didn't have the time or mental capacity to do all the research it takes to really know what gear to buy. My upcoming move to Colorado really made get serious about buying. It was extra convenient that Sara lives in Colorado and is familiar with the conditions I'll be skiing in and what gear will be best. She listened to the questions and concerns I had about gear and measurements and made me feel confident in my purchase! Thanks a ton!
