Style for a Good Cause

686 collaborates with nonprofit Boarding for Breast Cancer on a new Gore-Tex women's jacket that's functional, stylish, and supports a great mission.

Breast Cancer Awareness month may have come and gone with Daylight Savings, but there's never a wrong time to support and bring awareness to the disease. Boarding 4 Breast Cancer is a nonprofit dedicated to supporting young breast cancer patients and survivors, and educating younger generations on the importance of early detection and maintaining an active lifestyle.

686 Moonlight Jacket

686 X B4BC GLCR Moonlight Jacket

That's where 686 comes in. The brand, which skews to the terrain park and snowboard crowd, is a great partner for B4BC—but don't think for a second that the product of this collab, the 686 X B4BC GLCR Moonlight Women's Jacket, is anything but a premium jacket.

Made from two-layer Gore-Tex, the Moonlight rocks a flattering, freeride silhouette and all of the extras you want in a ski jacket, from powder skirt and underarm vents to pass pocket and thumbholes. The Gore face fabric has a silky feel and the whole jacket, which is lightly insulated with a 60g Polyfill, just moves well on the slopes. The print is understated yet unique—be prepared for lots of lift-line compliments. Which is, of course, the perfect opportunity to bring light to the plight of breast cancer's younger victims. After all, that's one way to share knowledge while doing something you love.
