686 Hydrastash Men's Jacket 2019 Review by The Good Ride

The 686 Hydrastash Men’s Jacket offers up pretty solid waterproofing/breathability but also has a unique hydration system built in around the waist. It’s a little bit of an awkward feeling at first but for most, it will be less awkward than a backpack. It’s got some insulation going for those that like more warmth in their outer layer and despite the non-helmet compatible hood and small media pocket it has a pretty functional layout.
