The Coat Check 2019—686 GLCR Stretch GORE-TEX™ SMARTY® 3-in-1 Weapon Jacket
SNOWBOARDER Magazine traveled all the way to Baldface Lodge high above Nelson, BC to experience some all-time cat boarding while getting a first look at how 8 new high-end men’s jackets perform when navigating storm conditions, descending waist deep pow and keeping us composed despite our succumbing to the froth effect. Check out the specs below!
More than a quarter of a century of detail oriented outerwear design knowledge has been brought to bear by 686 on the GLCR Stretch GORE-TEX™ SMARTY® 3-in-1 Weapon. When it comes to battling the elements the Weapon Jacket provides all the protection you’ll ever need to control the high ground. Rather than approach the outer shell and mid-layer as individual pieces the elements of the SMARTY system have been developed in concert. The result is a versatile, high performance package without compromise. In other words, from the non-abrasive merino wool fabric found on the collar mouth flap to the lycra horseshoe thumb wrist gaiters if it isn’t incorporated into the SMARTY® 3-in-1 Weapon Jacket then it’s probably stupid.
The jacket that set the bar for the ultimate warmth adaptation, now updated with stretch GORE-TEX® fabrics for enhanced movement creating the ultimate 3-in-1 artillery for all-weather adventuring.
