The 686 Women's Reserved Avalon Insulated Jacket is cut a little longer, so you get more protection from chilly winter winds and weather. Although we really think 686 just wanted to show off more of the Avalon's eye-catching poly twist yarn fabric, which weaves together threads of different shades and thicknesses for an rich, subtle striped look.

This jacket is great. It's completely waterproof, warm and comfortable. The hand panties keep your wrists warm and the jacket hits below the hip to prevent powder from shooting up your shirt on powder days. It's also fitted so it maintains a feminine silhouette. I get compliments on it almost every time I wear it. My only complaint is the lack of compartments. There are only two pockets that zip and they're on the outside by the stomach. The inside has only two pockets. A clear media pocket and a mesh velcrow pocket. Other than that this jacket is well built, practical but also aesthetic. Worth the money!
I really wanted to buy this jacket, it is sick! So I tried it on at my local board shop, and just to let all you girls know, the arm length is pretty short for the size. I usually wear a small, and the sleeves came past my wrists when I stretched my arms out. If you have short arms, go for it! Cool jacket!
