    Comments about 686 Smart Strike Jacket:

    The the 686 Smarty Complete Snow Jacket has got to be one of my favorite purchases of 2011. Even though I do not wear it often, as I live in sunny So Cal, I still feel extremely satisfied with owning it. I'm looking forward to some snow fall in Nor Cal later this Winter/Spring so I can sport my new Jacket up at Mammoth. I like to wear the bottom two layers when I'm out and about, and I like the bright colors and how they contrast with the true black materials. Overall, I would definitely recommend this jacket, although I would hate to see someone else wearing the same colorways in my vicinity. That's why I spent extra cash on it, in hopes that not so many other people would.

    Comments about 686 Smart Strike Jacket:

    Reviewing the 2012 686 Smarty Complete, which may be pointless as they no longer make a jacket called the "Complete". Has all the features a jacket needs (including powder skirt and hood that will fit over your helmet -- bring on the storms), although I would like nicer zippers all over the jacket instead of just the chest and sleeve pocket/vent thing.

    Comes with 2 different inner layers that can be added in different combinations to deal with extreme cold, but I can wear the shell alone down to about 20 F.

    The wrist gaiters have a tendency to start biting into the webbing between my thumb and hand when strapping in my bindings so I may need to modify them to add some extra length. I'm 6'3" and wearing the Large otherwise comfortably.

    The last 686 jacket I owned stayed waterproof the entire 5 or 6 seasons I used it, but I can't yet comment on long term durability of this updated version. I can say it kept me very dry during my most recent trip (early season Sierras) when it was snowing real sloppy.
