686 Smart Jacket is a great value for the money. It has a ton of features and pockets to store things while skiing or riding. The outer Shell is the best part of the jacket it has a high waterproof rating and is made of good material. My only gripe is with the inner shell part, the inner part is nothing more than light zip up, it seems more like a zip up sweater than an inner jacket lining. I was expecting something more akin to a northface/columbia fleece liner but overall I am still happy with my jacket purchase.
