See that bad weather over there? Sneak up on it, pull down its pants, and make it watch you shred that pillow line in the Plexus Stealth Thermagraph Insulated Men's Jacket from the pranksters at 686. The most bomber, high-tech jacket 686 offers, the Stealth is made with a 20K waterproof membrane and 160g InfiLoft insulation capable of standing up to the gnar, whether you're sessioning Mt. Baker road gaps or crushing spines in the Alaskan spring. Things tend to heat up when you're getting rowdy, too, so 686 ventilated the bejeezus out of the Stealth, with invisible underarm zips, a chest vent that access the inner storage pockets, and laser-cut collar perforations to fight off beardcicles.
The Stealth is built with 686's Expedition Fit, which is ergonomically designed while still hanging loose and offering freeride steeze. There are articulated elbows, an ergonomic collar, and underarm gussets to keep you flowing like water on technical terrain, and a stowable powder skirt that keeps the fluff out when you ragdoll down the steeps. A zip-off, super-adjustable hood is appreciated when the bluebird day suddenly turns to a hellacious storm, and a magnetic storm flap protects the water-resistant front zipper. Don't forget the Lycra wrist gaiters or the Recco reflector, either—686 didn't.
You'll eventually encounter stormy weather when you're up high on the ski hill and it's best to be prepared. Get robust protection with the waterproof 686 Plexus Stealth Thermagraph shell jacket.
