aesthetically awesome, I've gotten a lot of double takes
specifically, the ticket lady at Sierra at Tahoe asked to actually feel the material and asked if it was waterproof haha
waterproofing is solid and it holds true to it's 20K rating
lots of pockets to stash your stuff in, waterproofing is solid, hood IS helmet compatible and fit snugly over my Salomon Brigade, design is dope & definitely took some thinking over w/ 686's collaboration with Levi's.
Cons: minimal to no insulation- but this is as advertised- so it wasn't a shock to me. be sure to layer up. also, the fabric tends to lean toward "grabbing" snow vs. slipping off like other material jackets i.e. polyester but still, the waterproofing is legit.

Is the fit looks like the k-65 or it is baggier?
I'd say it's very similar to the K-65, maybe a little bit longer in the body.
Great jacket. I'm just good enough to get myself in trouble. Held up through the trees and lots of falling. Wish I could say the same for my board. Also in town lots of compliments and questions.

Im 6 feet tall and 150 pounds so a pretty lanky dude, just wondering if i would be better off with a large or would a medium do?
To be honest, I would go with a medium unless you have orangutan arms (like myself). I'm 6'4" 150 lbs. I have an XL due to my arm length, plus i do enjoy the baggy feel. IF you want something fitted I'd go with a M. If you're looking for that extra movement, go with an L
686 + Levi's is a class act
Got the Burton Ltd Grail denim jacket from last season which totally works. This 686 is a variation on the same theme but the execution is completely different. The devil is in the (Levi's) detail. Nice touches like the authentic buttons are actually fastened with velcro or zip and not by itself, which would be difficult to, er, button in the cold with frozen fingers. Initially it seems a boxier cut but I believe the stiff denim, unlike in the Ltd Grail that is softer from the sandblasting finish, will soften over time to give a less boxy look meaning it will look better in time with use as would any denim garment. Note the 686 cut is slightly baggier than the Burton equivalent. Two denim jackets but two different looks on and off the mountain. A must buy especially if you have or haven't the Ltd Grail already... P.S. It's great to walk into a (UK) Levi's store with the 686 and have the staff ask "I know it says Levi's but where did you get that?!"
I'm a big fan of Levi's & 686
So when they made this jacket i had to have it. and it's 3 layered so its warm, functional and stylish all together. I'm so stoked i got it!
