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

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
