686, a brand all about innovation and style, teamed up with Dickies, a brand dedicated to its damned near century old heritage of creating tough as nails workwear, to create the ruggedly functional 686XDickies Collection. The 686 Men's Dickies Miner Insulated Jacket blends shred ready performance with stylish durability. 686's InfiDry membrane offers supreme waterproof protection while fully Bemis taped seams keep errant moisture from sneaking its way inside. Whoever designed the Miner was smart, real smart, and gave it three different densities of polyfill insulation thicker in the body, thinner in the sleeves, and thinner yet in the hood, providing you with optimal warmth without extra bulk or restricted mobility. While the Miner is certainly ready for some bulldozer driving, pickaxe wielding, working up a sweat kind of labor, it's also ready to ride the pipe, park, pow, or anywhere else on the mountain. A removable powder skirt features 686's PJ Connect system, allowing you to connect your jacket to compatible 686 pants to keep the coat from riding up, the bottoms from falling down, and the snow from coming inside. The removable casual hood is great for those snowy lift rides, and adjustable closures on the collar, hem, and cuffs provide a customized fit. The only downside to wearing the Miner on the slopes is that people might just expect you to take a break from your riding to fix any broken down chairlifts, sleds, or snowcats.
