Founded in 1992 by Michael Akira West, the plan was simple - Create the best products that allow you to enjoy the best experiences in winter on and off the mountain. The first ideals I wrote down where “provide more than they expect” and “average is not acceptable.” Fast forward to 29 years and 686 continues to be an independently operated brand! 686 strive beyond expectations by constantly creating innovative products encouraging a diverse and inclusive atmosphere and continue to improve their sustainability stance by giving back to their communities both locally and globally. Here at The Board Basement, we are pleased to present impeccably designed products by a highly regarded brand. Whether you are looking for base layers to gaiters, you are sure to find just what you are looking for right here.
