686 Outerwear’s New “686 Seconds’ Teaser


Formed by California based skater and Big Bear Mountain snowboarder Mike Akira West in 1992, 686 Outerwear has been providing innovative, fashionable outerwear and technical apparel inspired from the same Los Angeles street culture and mountain lifestyle it was founded upon.

That same ethos of innovation and style translates to the riding styles of their international team and the new ‘686 Seconds’ teaser is a solid statement of this in both urban and backcountry environments. There are some solid tricks in there and just hope the full movie brings a bit more creativity and variety to keep me glued for a full 36 minutes.

Full movie available October 6th via iTunes and Vimeo On Demand.
