686m- Only way to go
I have been using 686 gear for years, I have 3 pairs of coats and pants all 2.5 Ply Complete. Though they have come out with other coats, nothing beats the 2.5.
You can wear it in cold and warm conditions. The three layers really make the difference. I have personally dragged my gear all over the world and have never had any issues, god bless 686!
