Review: 686 Outerwear: Smarty Command Colorblock XXL

Written by JT on . Posted in Reviews, Thoughts


Every season, I think to myself, “what jacket and/or pants should I get this year?”    Sometimes I think I’ll stray, but I always end up coming back to 686, and the Smarty line.  I’ve heard people complain, and I’ve heard people rave about 686.  I’ve heard everything from “their jackets suck” to “their smarty pants are the best.”   For me, it’s about comfortable, technical apparel that actually fits a big guy like myself.  I’ve found that in 686 time, and time again.

Oh December…

December has been an interesting month.  I haven’t been up to ride yet.  Between cutting my eye (argg what a ridiculously painful thing to do) and now somehow fracturing my foot, it’s been one of those months.  I’m itching to get out on the snow, so I hope you guys are out making turns, and enjoying the ride.  I’m hoping to get out over the next couple of weeks to make up for lost time.  Look for posts coming up.   Hope it’s snowing in your part of the world!

Hey all,

I’ve been buried under work, which has kept the site a bit quiet.  Have no fear, I’m gearing up for a pretty solid season, and will have some great reviews etc coming forth.   Hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving!
