Machiavelli was kind of a douche.
Machiavelli once said part of controlling others is the ability to intimidate them using both subtle and overt displays of well-timed aggression. With its bold, solid colors and classic design, 686’s Smarty Command is a 3-in-1 snowboard jacket that unambiguously asserts, ‘I am king of the mountain and ye underlings shall kneel before me’ without ever saying a word.
- All 686 Smarty pants and jackets are designed with a 3-in-1 detachable liner system that allows you to wear the gear multiple ways
- Keep the fleece liner in to retain your heat as you float through the shadow-pow, and remove it and stash it in your pack for afternoon sunny-groomer slaying
- 686 made the outer shell with Infinidry 10 fabric treatment, which provides 10K waterproofing and 8K breathability to help shed outside precipitation and allow excess internal heat and moisture to escape
- Adjustable powder skirt, pant-connect snaps, wrist gaiters, adjustable hood, and hem drawcord all conspire to seal out the snow and add comfort to your ride
- Knit beanie and custom luggage tag included with jacket

Go with a medium for it to fit true to size, large for a +1 fit.

How does this compare to something like this: http://www.backcountry.com/the-north-face-broadband-triclimate-jacket-mens
You're probably going to want something warmer. I'd recommend that North Face one you mentioned over this for warmth...But even more than that, I'd go with a down tri climate.

im thinking of getting this jacket but am having a hard time figuring out which size to order. im 5'7 and usually wear a medium. reading some of these reviews though, it seems like people that were taller than me found the medium to be big. can anybody shed some more light on this? do these sizes really run big? if so, should i really consider ordering a small?
also, just as a side note, i have the 686 smarty pants in medium and they fit me perfectly.
thanks for any help.
Ok, I just received this jacket about an hour ago. Go with the small. You will have room in it for a jumper unless you are a fatty. I am taller than you (6"2) but skinny and the medium I ordered is pretty much spot on for me. (I usually wear a large). I will attach a quick sexy webcam pic for you - note: I am 6"2, have a t-shirt and long sleeve top on and the jacket over that. I have full movement and prefer the jacket in a "not too baggy" style. Btw, it is a nice jacket - similar to what I would expect a snow ninja to wear - lining has apparently been designed by retarded children but apart from that it seems warm. I too wear the 686 Smarty cargo pants in medium. They are good pants. Jacket seems to have been constructed with slightly different materials and not as insulated as the Smarty cargos which was a bit disappointing, and no snow ninja would accept the fact that the pocket flaps are velcro phonies but regardless, I like and would recommend the jacket.
thank you. ordering small.
great all around jacket
got this jacket for this this winter and i couldnt be happier. great fit and goes perfect with my smarty pants when using the pow skirt. def kept me super warm on a chilly day, all day and was completely dry at the end of the day. ive always been impressed with 686 and will continue to buy there pants and jackets as long as they keep making them this steezy! the liner is fine it keeps u super warm and can easily be zipped out if ure over it but its very nice for the cold days. aloha.
2 - 4 - 6 - 8 - 6 - This Jacket Is the Sh*t!
As my dogfunk records will confirm, I have taken to solely buying 686 jackets. I equate them to iMacs. They just work and keep you warm. Yes, you pay more, but if you want a jacket for 5 seasons, 686 is the brand. Rakim Say Peace.
Great Jacket but inner linner could be better
I got this jacket because it has a lot of features but is not too expensive. The outer shell is great so far. It seemed big when I first tried it on. I am 5'10" 150 lbs and got a medium. However once loaded up with my snowboard gear it was pleasantly baggy. I don't know if a small would fit better but I like the fit when I am ready to board. Around town it is too big. The features are what I needed. I find the velcro flaps that don"t have an actual purpose other than style a bit strange but whatever. The outside has three pockets, pit zips and a pass flap in the wrist strap. The inside has a nice mp3 player pocket and a pocket big enough for goggles. Setup with the liner could be better. Once the liner is zipped in you loose access to the inner features of the jacket (naturally) but the features where not duplicated in the linner. It has no inner pockets or mp3 player internal pockets. You player is left in the outside world to freeze and kill the battery. The inside of the liner is fleece and therefore sticks to your clothing making it difficult to put on and take off. A vinyl liner would have worked wonders here. I like the coat but would probably not buy one with the same liner again. The liner is way to big for me and could have easily been shrunk down to give a slim fit. I feel like I am wearing a trash bag. So I won"t wear the liner by itself.
Awesome yet simple jacket. Great fit and warmth. Only downside, the hood gets in the way a wee bit when fully zipped, and it has a silly little bill.
does this jacket have the little loops in...
does this jacket have the little loops in the inside of the cuffs to attach your mitts/gloves??
This jacket is the ISH, keeps you toasty on those cold days on the mountain, peel off the fleece liner for the warmer days. It'll get you noticed out there too, super vibrant colors for the camera fella's to spot you. I smartened up and bought a smarty jacket, it's about time you do too!
i just got this jacket. it keeps you warm and it comes in great colors.
Basic yet Perrrrfect!
Love this Coat and all the colors it comes in,it's nice to have some plain solid colors to choose from.
Super warm w/ the smarty system & totally H2O proof. Great pocket system for all ur Ish & vents for those warm days. I usually wear it as 2 peaces instead of zipping it together.
