Whether you’re fat biking or exploring in the backcountry this winter, you’ll benefit from the fruits of Specialized’s collaboration with 686. In this case, they’re talking about the all-new Specialized Women’s 686 X Tech Insulator Jacket.Starting at the exterior, you’ll find that the Tech Insulator is constructed from a woven fabric that’s been given a DWR coating, making it water-resistant. Moving beyond this layer of the jacket, Specialized have incorporated 100g Primaloft insulation to keep you consistently warm both under effort and when relaxed. Primaloft was chosen for its ultralight weight, breathability, pack-ability, and high warmth-to-weight ratio. Essentially, this all adds up to a dependable insulation layer that will never leave you feeling clammy or cold.Furthering this, the jacket includes an adjustable hood for when conditions get particularly cold, as well as Lycra wrist gaiters that interface perfectly with gloves. And knowing that this jacket will most likely be used in nasty conditions, it also features a foldout spray skirt and 3M reflective trims that will increase your visibility to other riders and motorists in low-light conditions.
