Tired of carrying a water bottle or bulky hydration pack around on the mountain, but don’t want to give up the convenience of staying hydrated on the go? Fear not, the crew at 686 has recently developed their state-of-the-art Hydrastash technology, an all-new way to carry the liquids you need for a full day of boarding, without any of the hassles a lumpy bag or bottle pose.
The 686 GLCR Hydrastash® Reservoir Insulated Jacket can hold 25oz. of water discretely packaged away within the jacket’s powder skirt. But that’s not all that this jacket offers. Included in its extensive list of features are 686’s infiDRY 20K stretch fabric, fully taped seams with Bemis seam-tape, YKK AquaGuard water-resistant zippers, ergonomic lightweight insulation, an inner media audio pocket with a touchscreen window, easy zip mesh-lined underarm vents, 686’s pant-to-jacket connection system, and inner lycra horseshoe thumb wrist gaiters to keep the snow out. In layman’s terms, there’s a heck of a lot of technology in this winter coat.
