"too form fitting and horrible zipper" 10/5/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 686 Plexus Hydra Snowboard Jacket Men's
  • Pros:  thick, rugged fabric , good styling / design&fabric, decent features
  • Cons:  weak zipper, too tailored fit, cheap liner fabric
  • Jacket Fit:  Too big
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  XL
  • Description:  form fitting / tight

Experience:   686 obviously listened to the reviews and beefed up the fabric on this years Plexus. The worst feature on the Plexus Hydra is the cheap, tiny zipper. They hype it as water-tight, but it's difficult to zip up and it's catchy - feels as if you're going to break it every tug. In contrast, the zipper on my 2009 Plexus Pinnacle is beefy and super easy to zip (both inner and outer flaps make it as snow and water-tight as I need...haven't had any problems). As 686 is known for, their medium still basically fits like everyone else's large, etc., but the fit on the Hydra is much more tailored (opposite of baggy) than my Pinnacle. The chest and shoulders on the Hydra are so boxy and tight, there isn't room to spare (I don't get full movement in it). Unlike other 686 jackets, I might actually be able to wear a large Hydra (my normal size) and not look as much like a clown as I do in a large Pinnacle or Smarty. On top of being too form-fitting, the Hydra has a bunch of cheap liner fabric inside that makes it impractical to add layers (other than an undershirt)...which also means you probably won't be able to shed anything when it gets warm. The Hydra really isn't a shell in the true sense of the word...more just a lined, lower-end, non-modular snow jacket. They claim it's 15k breathable, but, for some reason, it feels stuffy/steamy compared to my Pinnacle (also 15K). On the plus side, the Hydra does have some good features, including a full band of moisture-wicking fabric around the inner neck & face area of the collar (you might not need that face mask, after all), thumb gaiters, pit-zips and a snow skirt (non-removable). Great looking, rugged jacket and as good, if not better than most snowboard jackets at this price...but it's just not good enough for me. Sending it back.

"a little baggy, but awesome" 2/21/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 686 Plexus Hydra Snowboard Jacket Men's
  • Pros:  awesome color,
  • Cons:  a little baggy,
  • Jacket Fit:  Too big
  • My Size:  M
  • Fits Like:  L
  • Description:  a little baggy

Experience:   Fell in love with the color and style the first time I saw this jacket in person. My other jacket (North Face) is a M so I'm comparing the size with that. Hung side by side, the 686 jacket is about 2-3 inches longer at the bottom making it a bit awkward to zip up, which is my only real gripe. I usually just wear a thermal with my NF jacket, and with this I probably needed another layer to keep me just as warm. <br>686's style is definitely more on the baggy side, as I've also tried on their Smarty 3-in-1 Cargo pants.

"Sweet jacket at price point" 1/31/2012
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: 2012 686 Plexus Hydra Snowboard Jacket Men's
  • Pros:  Sweet tech for price point, Simple but stylish, Light weight
  • Cons:  little lacking in pockets,
  • Jacket Fit:  Too small
  • My Size:  L
  • Fits Like:  M
  • Description:  I would size up on this jacket...

Experience:   This jacket is hard to beat at 20/15 at this price point. Simple with no bells and whistles but that is why you get it at such a good price. Definitely recommend this jacket for the price. I am 5'9 and 170 to 175 pounds and I wear this jacket in Large and it fits me perfect. I wear Burton jackets in Medium. I own a Moment jacket in Large that is a little on the big side so I think I am probably between a Medium and Large fit. Since this jacket fits so well on me in Large i would say it runs a tad on the small side.
