IMHO I would go with the 686 I own a Smarty from like 4 years ago and is still awesome, might be getting a 32 jacket this year. 686's quality is top line and rugged plus with that model of jacket you basically get a sweater with that one for when you're hiking the park and need to take the outside layer off. I would stay away from the Foursquare if it has no insulation it'll be a bitch to layer, plus jackets like that are more for casual wear/park IMO specially with the removable accessories, if you're going to get a boarding jacket just get what you need, look for at least 10-15k waterproof and 10-15g insulation. My 686 hasn't failed and I've boarded in slush and -40C up here in the North. Good luck!
