Likes: I have the 686 Satellite Jacket along with the Plasma and Cargo pants. Excellent quality, excellent water-proof and breathability. Satellite Jacket converts to a vest on warmer days, has plenty of pockets, is very warm (typically wear 1 base layer under it - nothing else), and looks good. The Plasma Pants are insulated and very warm (typically no base layer needed), water-resistant pocket (great for carrying cash), good fit (not slim and not baggy). The Cargo Pants are quite warm, too (due to the fleece smarty liner), lots of pockets, lots of colors to choose from. 686 makes excellent outwear, highly recommended.

Dislikes: None.

Likes: Owned 3 smarty jackets..all have been super warm and comfortable. Tons of pockets for all your stuff. Fit are pretty true to size and never too baggy. Never had any quality issues with any of there products. No fraying, tears, fading,etc. Waterproofing in the jackets and pants are always great. Never had wet butt syndrome in their clothing!

Dislikes: Smarty command jackets don't come with wrist gaiters built in to the jacket. They are just thumb holes in the zip out liner. Probably fine for most people, but I like mine sewn into the shell.

Likes: Big fan of almost everyhing 686 I've owned, couple jackets, couple pants...beanies, etc. All been very solid. I like the new direction they've taken, which is in line with the industry. Can't fault them for that. For the price, you really can't beat 686 gear. Their waterproofing is usually as good or better than advertised which is a huge plus for me. Functionality over style, always.

Likes: Great budget or beginner soft-goods for snowboarding. Good style and durable products.

Dislikes: They are on the lower end of the industry as far as innovation and tech goes. Waterproofing, for example isn't optimal. Most of them you'll find at 5,000mm waterproofing which is fine for the recreational rider but you'll need something more for riding consecutive days or in spring conditions.

Likes: Decent outerwear a bit trendy if you ask me. Big Logos and loud colors give me the feel of youth marketing. Do your thing 686, but i'm jumping ship.

Dislikes: Just to loud for me. Never had a quality issue with what little 686 that i've owned....

Likes: I have owned several pairs of 686 pants and prefer their insulated versions. 686 pants generally perform better than their ratings, whether it be the waterproofing or breathability. Their pants are extremely durable and very warm...so warm that I find I do not have to wear thermals when sporting these puppies. The fit on their pants line is ideal and consistent with regular clothing.

Dislikes: I am not a huge fan of their pocket layouts but since I never carry anything in my pockets, this is not a problem for me as much as it is for others. Also, their secre feature on their pockets have to be re-design as well.

Likes: the number of pockets & mirror (especially in smarty), very waterproof, inner liner (smarty), design, material is durible (based on the 5 items i have from 686),

Dislikes: my non smarty jacket does not have enough pockets or the mirror. all the gear should have recco reflectors. zipper is on the right side.. i prefer it to be like my other normal jackets on the left~

Likes: I recently bought a 686 jacket and I can't be more happy with it. The jacket feels like it's made of quality materials and doesn't feel like those cheap sub standard products. I've used the jacket for snowboarding about 5 times not and the waterproofing is solid. The nice thing is that it's stylish enough to wear every day also.

Likes: My old Head pants just made my bottom all wet in the spring slush. After that, I bought a pair of 686 pants at a local shop, and so far, it kept me warm and dry in a manner that I could sit around in pools of slush. It's comfortable with good fit. Big thumbs up.

Likes: Toolbelt, toolbelt, toolbelt...I would say the most innovative invention of the century. Screwdrivers, wrenches, and a bottleopener in one belt. Best thing to take with you on your runs. Also, 686's other products don't fall behind. They can really waterproof the clothing. A full-day of dryness under these. Wide range of fashionable selection.

Dislikes: Dis, I like. Not dislike.

Likes: 686 is a good outerwear brand. They have some very nice products. Products like the trademarked SMARTY line of removable liners, TIMES line of limited edition co-branded products, ACC line of collaborative artist projects, the patented TOOLBELT line of functional belts, and fabric innovations like Waterproof Denim, Corduroy and Herringbone, all make up the 686 name. If there's one thing I can say about 686, it's that they have a clean design. I would definitely recommend this brand

Likes: I just picked up the 686 Gus Jacket (Plaid) and the 686 R.K. Enney Denim Snowboard pants for myself and a 686 Jacket for my wife. All (3) pieces seem well made and should last for quite some time. The Gus jacket is a solid fit with several pockets and vents.

Dislikes: Gus Jacket - There is a zipper on the chest that must be to release heat quickly. It seems as though it should be a pocket but it is not, seems out of place.

Likes: I really like their stuff! It has 10k waterproofing for the most part, which is the popular pick on the mountain. Their gear looks really sick too! Looks really good when riding in the park for some reason. Everyone i see in the park is either wearing burton, foursquare or 686 gear in the parks in the PNW. Anyways, really nice gear!

Likes: 686 is my favorite Pant and Jacket manufacturer. They are very innovative and try to pack a lot of features into their products at a good price. Their products last a long time. I have ridden in the same Smarty Original Cargo pants for probably 10 years. I just bought a new pair to replace the old ones. The smarty lines is nice because it adds warmth without having to wear long underwear, you can also lounge around in the liners.I have no experience with their warranty department but I believe their warranties are good. I will always buy 686 products. This is a 4.5 star company.

Dislikes: Products run a little large. Zippers are not the best but work fine for the most part.

Likes: There 15k material really sheds the PNW onslaught of moisture. The cut on mist stuff is perfect. Baggy but not huge. Tons of pockets. Levi's collabs are sick.

Dislikes: The collars on some jackets take getting used to. When zipped all the way up, they ride right under yer chin. Arm openings on some jackets are too big also. Not a biggie though.

Dislikes: Some of the sizes not very consistent from item to item, from model to model.. So could be a little bigger than expected.
