686 Smarty Form 3 in 1 Jacket 2023 - 2016 Review by The Good Ride

The 686 Smarty 3 in 1 Form Jacket is not bad for a 3 in 1. I’m usually not the biggest fan of 3 in 1 jackets, but 686 usually has one of the best ones out there. The mid layer jacket this year is a hybrid puffer/fleece bomber jacket. The outer jacket is a 2 layer fabric that’s 20k waterproof.

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.
