686 Smarty Form 3 in 1 Jacket 2019 - 2016 Review by The Good Ride

The 686 Smarty 3 in 1 Form Jacket is not bad for a 3 in 1. I’m not a huge fan of 3 in 1’s because often you end up compromising with the jacket but usually more so with the mid layer.  This is no exception but I think many who just don’t want to spend a lot of time shopping for the whole outerwear quiver can save some time here.  If you can take the time you will be better off though.

686 Smarty Form 3 in 1 Jacket Past Reviews

The 686 Smarty Form Jacket is a 3 in 1 with a fleece liner. 686 has a great fit for the average body and the fleece liner is really warm. It’s got some quirks but for the price it gives you a complete set up. 686 outerwear isn’t perfect but it’s generally a safe decision for those with a medium to large build.

Lots of features and what not. Was warm as well as well vented but I simply could not get over the fleece liner that stuck to everything and made it a serious pain in the ass to take off and put on.
