The 'Fit'

686 snowboard and ski jackets come in different 'fits'. Check the product description on each jacket to see which fit applies.

Standard Fit
The most popular fit, not too slim, leaves enough room to accommodate all your needs without sacrificing style.

Modern Fit:
686's slimmest fit, which isn't too loose, but leaves enough room for any riding style while maintaining style.

Articulated Fit:
Includes ergonomically articulated cut lines in the elbows and hood which work with your movements. Engineered to explore, designed to work with very inch of your body while exploring the backcountry, sending it off your favourite park jump or just ripping around the resort.

Tailored Fit:
Provides a streetwear inspired profile that still offers enough room for layering and proper movement on the mountain.

How to Measure Your Chest

Wear just an undergarment or nothing at all.

Stand up straight with your arms hanging by your sides and breath normally.

Run a soft tape measure under your arm pits over the largest part of your chest and across your shoulder blades.

The tape measure should be snug, but not tight.

How to Measure Your Arm Length

Wear just an undergarment or nothing at all.

Stand up straight with your arms hanging by your sides.

Ask a friend to run a soft tape measure from the centre of the back of your neck, across to the tip of one shoulder, then down the outside of your arm to your wrist bone.

Jacket Dimensions

We strongly recommend that you never measure a jacket to determine the size you need.  Actual garment sizes differ substantially from the dimensions quoted in the table at the top of this page because the manufacturer makes allowances for:

    ●  The wearing of mid and / or base layers beneath the jacket.

    ●  The freedom of movement required for snowboarding and skiing.

    ●  The cut and style of the jacket.

    ●  The insulation which may or may not be included in a particular jacket.

All of the above will differ depending on a jacket's specific design.  If you have a jacket at home which fits you well, please do not attempt to measure it to help you choose the size of your new jacket - it will not work even if your existing jacket is the same make or similar style to the one you'd like to buy.
