686 Nanga GTX Jacket 2020 Review by The Good Ride

The 686 Nanga Gore-Tex Jacket is a great 3 in 1 for those that like the backcountry but isn’t the best fit for a resort rider that wants functional waist pockets and venting. You have to choose one or the other.  Other than that it’s incredibly light, very waterproof/breathable and has a light insulation layer that adds a lot of warmth to the jacket.
