686 Technical Apparel, manufacturers of highly technical waterproof jackets, pants and accessories have put their own spin on classic Motörhead apparel in a limited edition capsule for Winter 2018.
“Motörhead’s brand of music – loud and fast – has been synonymous with skiing and snowboarding for decades,” explains 686 Founder and CEO Michael Akira West. “And to be able to work with such classic inspiration is an honor in and of itself.”
The centerpiece of the capsule is 686’s Motörhead Jacket. A 10K waterproof collared jacket with black denim removable hood, a large sublimated Motörhead Snaggletooth logo on the back and detailed embroidery on the sleeves, hood and chest. The jacket is complemented by a pair of 10K waterproof ski/snowboard mitts, a water and wind resistant bonded fleece hoody and facemask as well as a Motörhead beanie.
“I wore the mittens all season,” notes current 3x Freeride World Tour Champion Sammy Luebke. “The snaggletooth has been to top of some of the most amazing mountains of the world with me and it was impossible not to ride loose and fast while channeling one of my favorite band’s music during every comp.”
Sammy can be seen wearing the 686 x Motörhead gloves on his Freeeride World Tour 2018 winning run in Verbier.
The 686 x Motorhead capsule is available at finer 686 stockists and online at 686.com.
