686’s youth jacket to pant interface system, “PJ-Connect” aligns fabric loops located just below the waist of 686 pants with snaps on the powder skirt of their jackets. These snaps hook through and secure the loops on the pants, keeping the pants from falling down and the jacket from riding up. Keeping pants off of the ground helps fight troublesome wear and tear parking lots can inflict on pant cuffs. This system gives you the protection of a one-piece, but in a versatile, two-piece outfit. Tackle deep powder and stormy conditions without having to worry about getting snow inside your gear.
