686 Upton Insulated Anorak 2023 - 2022 Review by The Good Ride

This is a look at the 686 Upton Insulated Anorak. This color way is a collaboration between Grateful Dead and 686. The Upton jacket comes with 10k waterproofing and 10k breathability. It is fully insulated with 60g of insulation in the body and sleeves. The fit is somewhat baggy, but the arms were too short for my arm length. Better for people with sorter arms. Other than that, it was comfortable to wear for me.

Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews.  No one is perfect and we do make money from the “Where To Buy” links below, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average rider’s perspective.

How This Review Happened: We borrowed this from Gravity Sports at Mt Bachelor to test out the fit and features.
