686 presents the Hydra Thermagraph Jacket

Lea Hauser

In ongoing efforts to create the most waterproof technical apparel possible, 686 has released the Hydra Thermagraph Jacket. Exclusive infiDRY® 20 fabric protects you from the water, wind and snow while Thermagraph™ body mapped insulation keeps you toasty warm where you need it most – at your core. A unique asymmetrical zipper and vader vents ensure comfort all day long.

Check out the video to get a better feel for the Hydra Thermagraph Jacket and its inspiration, the Lotus Effect, which – as our dear old friend wiki tells us – refers to the very high water repellence exhibited by the leaves of the lotus flower. Dirt particles are picked up by water droplets due to a complex micro and nanoscopic architecture of the surface, which minimizes adhesion.
