686 Clothing & Sizing..

Written by JT on . Posted in Reviews

I’ve never purchased anything from 686 YET!  I am however about to pickup some gear from them, based on the fact they are quite true in the sizing department.  Anyone who is a bigger rider, whether it’s feet, waist, chest, what have you, knows finding name brand snowboard gear can be a nightmare.  It appears 686 is one place you can turn to to get stylish, quality gear.

I’ve got several pairs of Goggles to post reviews on, but decided to start with the Oakley A frames, as people tend to flock towards Oakley goggles.  Oakley is well known, and incredibly established in the optics arena.  They make high quality optics, and do so very well.

Hi-Fi Helmet

Should I wear a helmet, or should I skip it?  Questions that everyone probably asks themselves.   I choose to wear a helmet based on safety issues and having been hit in the head once before by a rider not paying downhill attention.    While not always the most stylish event, I do find myself at times forgetting I even have my helmet on.   Now..the reason for this post, is not to discuss why or why not, it’s actually just to present some helmet sizing information.
