686 Athena Insulated 2019 Review by The Good Ride

The 686 Athena Jacket is a good jacket for someone who gets cold temps but doesn’t like storm riding. The Athena is well insulated (80g body, 60g sleeves, 40g hood) but it has an average waterproof rating of 10k. It can get you by in some weather but probably will get a little soaked through in wetter snow conditions. The Athena Jacket has a nice variety of pockets, has a nice fit, and looks pretty good for only being $169.95.
