Tons of hands-on research and development have gone into the 686 Plexus Plasma Thermagraph Pants - providing you with a pant that is unique in style and superb in performance. 686 has been turning out top-of-the-line outerwear - giving a rider all their wants and needs to take the ride of their life. The Plexus Plasma Thermagraph Pants will keep you on top of your game with a sweet look and the warmth and comfort that allows you to practice your sport to the best of your ability. As you're rocking these pants - mix or match them with your favorite 686 Jacket to complete your cold weather outerwear.
We went to the doctor one time with a stuffy nose, and they told us we'd probably need a plexus plasma thermagraph to clear things up. (We think that's what they called it, anyway, but we were heavily sedated at the time). In any case, 686 must've caught what we had, because they've named one of their signature freeride pants the Plexus Plasma Thermagraph and tricked it out with all sorts of features designed to keep you shredding through the worst weather and most persistent stuffy noses.
Fully-taped seams and an InfiDry 20K waterproof membrane are dryer than a mouthful of saltines, and 80g InfiLoft insulation in the seat and knee panels keep you warmer than a 102-degree fever. Sweating too much isn't an issue, though, because 686 hooked the Plexus up with inseam and crotch vents, and gave them an engineered fit, articulated knees, and a gusseted crotch so they flow with you like water. There's also a removable powder skirt waist gaiter and BOA-lace-compatible leg gaiters, to keep chill-inducing snow at bay and reduce cuff-fiddling if you need to adjust your boots.
The 686 Plasma Thermagraph Snowboard Pant is both an insulated pant and a shell pant. 686 put insulation in high-contact zones like the seat and knees, but left other areas as a shell to maximize breathability. This gives you that little blast of extra warmth that you need without overheating you. The Plasma Thermagraph Pants are also highly waterproof, so you can stay out in a blizzard and get fresh tracks. Air-Flo venting customizes the temp even further by getting you a quick blast of cool air when you need it.
Plexus brings the future of lightweight, technical shell outerwear to the present. This men’s exclusive category focuses on minimalist designs that offer progressive features such as the new Thermagraph body mapping insulation system.
Minimalist design with maximum protection, the waterproof 686 Plexus Plasma Thermagraph insulated pants feature sweet fabric, lightweight insulation and handy pockets for long days on the mountain.

These Pants are super Wind & Water Proof & the fabric is pretty durable & burly against tears. I got the Black pair for the Sleds since I'm always spilling oil on myself as we prep the machines in the morning. My running boards are sharp & spiked for traction which suck for tearing pants up but these pants seem to hold up as well against tearing. Great pockets too for holding tons of Ish. The Boa door in the powder cuff is key too!!! That Thermograph Tech works great too, yet they are breathable when you are on the move!! This is a must have pant if your into tech dry & Warm gear for extreme conditions!!
