686 (baggy)

I Ordered a 686 Mannual Grid Insulated Jacket in (XL) since my chest is 41 inches so i could layer (I'm 6ft 190pounds 34waist) the jacket was way to big for my frame. I sent it back for a Large i like the that its a bit baggy, keep in mind that 686 clothing style runs a little big.

*Me in the 686 XL

im 6'0 with long arms and my M jacket is just a tad big. i wouldnt want a small but a larg would swallow me. yeah you probably need a small at 5'7.

686 runs bigggg! Especially pants. I usually wear medium, and they fell off me. Small was still almost too big! Switched to Burton.

I'm 5'7" 140lbs (29-30waist). I've got 686 (&KreW) Lumberjack softshell size 'M' and 686 Original Cargo Pants size 'M'.
First time (at home) I get my jacket on I was dissapointed, it looked way to big on me. Pants are baggy but it's the way i wish to go anyway.
But after the first time I took it on slopes all worries washed away! It's perfect! Lots of style, comfy and give you freedom to move.

Haven't owned any 686 pants, but have had a few of their jackets, and they do run big.

Had a pair of 686 pants in small and they definitely ran too big

i got the smarty original cargo pants in medium...
im 5'9 140lbs

i got the medium pants just because i like the freedom of the baggy fit.
but i do always need a belt.



also i got a medium 686 index jacket. that i could of probably sized down.




my vote: get a small jacket for sure, and depending on youre preference the pant size is up to you.

686 makes some awesome clothing... but i think that they make their jackets one size bigger than what u actually wear ( ex. if u regularly wear L, if u buy a 686 in L, then the jacket will feel like an XL) at least that is IMO

i have the 686 acc as well as the smarty. the pants fit like a glove but both jackets DO run a lil big

Without me, my board is useless. Without my board, I am useless
