Whether you find yourself taking laps at your local resort of breaking trail in the alpine, inclement conditions and freezing temps are one and the same. No matter your usual terrain, if a jacket is built for riding big mountains, you can be confident it will perform closer to home. It was to this end that 686 went to their roster of accomplished backcountry riders to develop the Sync Jacket, meticulously tailored for winter performance to make sure you’re never forced to head inside because of cold, moisture, or even thirst. The Sync Jacket features the trusted waterproofing and breathability of 2-Layer GORE-TEX plus DWR, while merino wool lining on the inner collar adds extra comfort. Taped seams, venting, and plenty of pockets further enhance this GLCR Collection jacket. The hallmark of the Sync, though, is 686’s proprietary Hydrastash hydration system, a 25 oz. bladder that fits seamlessly into the powderskirt and ensures you can access water easily whenever you need it, without noticing any extra bulk when bootpacking or making turns. With all bases covered in the 686 Sync, if it’s good enough for Victor Daviet, Sammy Luebke, and Gigi Ruff, well, it’s good enough for us.
