686 Snowboard Clothing Technical Features

Infidry™

INFIDRY™ from 686 keeps you drier and more comfortable all day long. Through a combination of comprehensive textiles and fabric technology, we bring you two layers of dryness and warmth. Layer one is composed of abrasion resistant fabric coated with a DWR finish, while the second layer contains waterproof and breathable properties that protect you from the elements while wicking moisture away from your body.

INFIDRY-20™ (3-PLY)

20,000mm water permeability
15,000gm moisture vapor transport
TIMES LEVI'S®: Infidry fabric technology consists of three layers: first is the base fabric, second is the microporous lamination and third layer is a thin Japanese poly tricot backside. This process yields the kind of durable, highly waterproof and breathable material serious riders covet. Combined with this fabric technology, every seam is sealed with specific tape, matching the poly tricot backside for unsurpassed quality and performance.

INFIDRY-20™ (2-PLY or 2.5-PLY)

20,000mm water permeability
15,000gm moisture vapor transport
SMARTY 20K: Infidry-20DT’s technology consists of 2.5 processes to form a 2.5 layer fabric. The first layer is the shell fabric, the second layer a microporous coating and the third layer a thin printed pattern. The results yield a highly lightweight, waterproof and breathable material. Combined with this fabric technology, every seam is sealed with specific tape, matching the same type of DT coating for unsurpassed
quality and performance.

INFIDRY-15™

15,000mm water permeability
10,000gm moisture vapor transport
TIMES LEVI'S®, PLEXUS AND SMARTY 15K: Our fabric coating is microporous, which means it allows moisture from your body’s perspiration to exit while preventing moisture from the elements to enter, thus staying dry and warm from the inside as well. Microporous coatings are polyurethane mixtures applied with high pressure to the back side of the shell fabric. The fabric goes through a three-step waterproofing process to ensure it stays soft and supple. These processes also produce added durability, heavier weight and softer drape.

INFIDRY-10™

10,000mm water permeability
8,000gm moisture vapor transport
TIMES LEVI'S®, PLEXUS, SMARTY 10K, RESRVED, MANNUAL 10K: Our fabric coating is microporous, which means it allows moisture from your body’s perspiration to exit while preventing moisture from the elements to enter, thus staying dry and warm from the inside as well. Microporous coatings are polyurethane mixtures applied with high pressure to the back side of the shell fabric. The fabric goes through a three-step waterproofing process to ensure it stays soft and supple. These processes also produce added durability, heavier weight and softer drape.

INFIDRY-8™

8,000mm water permeability
5,000gm moisture vapor transport
PLEXUS, YOUTH SMARTY, MANNUAL: Our fabric coating is microporous, which means it allows moisture from your body’s perspiration to exit while preventing moisture from the elements to enter, thus staying dry and warm from the inside as well. Microporous coatings are polyurethane mixtures applied with high pressure to the back side of the shell fabric. The fabric goes through a three-step waterproofing process to ensure it stays soft and supple. These processes also produce added durability, heavier weight and softer drape.

INFIDRY-5™

5,000mm water permeability
5,000gm moisture vapor transport
MANNUAL: Our fabric coating is microporous, which means it allows moisture from your body’s perspiration to exit while preventing moisture from the elements to enter, thus staying dry and warm from the inside as well. Microporous coatings are polyurethane mixtures applied with high pressure to the back side of the shell fabric. The fabric goes through a three-step waterproofing process to ensure it stays soft and supple. These processes also produce added durability, heavier weight and softer drape.

DWR (DURABLE WATER REPELLENT)

600mm water permeability
Used on all 686 outerwear fabrications, DWR is the last finish applied on the shell fabric surface. It enables the fabric to shed water, preventing saturation and enhancing the coating or laminate beneath the fabric. DWR also helps repel stains and oils on the surface which can impede the fabrics “breathability”.

BEMIS® TAPED SEAMS

All seams are specially taped with Bemis® branded seam taping to further insure quality workmanship and guaranteed waterproofness.

RECCO® AVALANCHE RESCUE SYSTEM

Used on specific Times, Plexus and Smarty pieces, RECCO® is an avalanche rescue system utilized by more than 600 rescue organizations worldwide to assist in the efficient location of burials. RECCO technology enables rapid directional pinpointing of a victim’s precise location using harmonic radar.
