    Comments about 686 Reserved M-65 Insulated Jacket:

    First off about size, I'm 5'10" and 175 pounds. This jacket fits me perfectly with just a base layer on under it. I can see things getting tight if you wanted to put a fleece on too.

    I haven't had this jacket exposed to the elements yet but I feel comfortable saying it could handle things well. It's pretty warm and I was able to spend an hour out and about in high 30 degree temps with just a tshirt on under it.

    686 quality is impressive and the attention to detail in the design is amazing. I'm a fan of 686 for life now.

      I have had this jacket for about 3 weeks and it has been below zero all but one time I've worn it.
      That said it is not particularly warm. The fit is poor in that the sleeves are sized for a twelve year old under nourished girl. This is what I attribute the lack of warmth to. [I needed a jacket after the zipper failed on my old one or I may have returned it.] If you could properly layer under it I think it would be OK but the sleeves are small enough to prevent anything but a thin layer. The chest fits fine, even a little big. I would like it to be a little shorter in the body but I am 5'6" so its probably fine for most people.
      It is also uncomfortable in the pits. Kinda tight and bunchy. This is better with the pit vents open but I haven't had much need for ventilation yet.
      It's a little heavy on velcro. The collar velcro tends to stick to the liner making it a pain to put on and the hand warmer pocket velcro tears at the lycra cuffs.
      I think the overall quality is good but some sacrifices have been made in the name of fashion that didn't have to be. I suspect I will like it more as the weather warms and I no longer need to layer or close the vents.

      Comments about 686 Reserved M-65 Insulated Jacket:

      I decided I buy this jacket because I always hear good things about 686 and this was priced really low. This is my second snowboard jacket and this one takes the cake! Super warm and comfortable with plenty of pockets. I like that the pockets have Velcro and zipper; easy or secure access! The jacket also has these underarmor-type sleeve extensions that you fit your hand through before slipping them into your gloves. Plenty of vents too which is crucial or me because I usually snowboard in sunny, warm weather. This thing meet gets wet either.. Kept me dry through a storm.

          Nice jacket. Looks cool and keeps you dry and mostly warm. I wish it was longer, but it wasn't described as being long. The grip I have with the jacket is the collar. It doesn't zip closely to your neck like most snowboard jackets do. It leaves a rather large opening for snow and cold air to find. Wear a high fitting bottom layer or scarf.
