I tried to find the 686 Smarty at a lower price and paid for my cheapness. The 2012-2013 model has hand gaiters that I think are key to keeping your hands/wrists dry and warm. The 2010-2011 model that you can find for ~$60 less is missing several key upgrades. Make sure you get the one you want... Certainly will be buying from Backcountry in the future when my mistake jacket is refunded by the other site.
