686 Back in the UK

The Rider’s Lounge, distributors for Capita, Union, Coal, Deeluxe, Mizu water bottles and more have just announced that they’ve just added 686 clothing to their already impressive brand roster. 686 grew from the mind of Mike West, a Southern California rider who spent his formative years in the 90’s shredding Big Bear, before he decided to start the brand in 1992. The name comes from some of the pivotal points in his life – a crucial date in the life of his grandmother (6 June 1986) and the age when he started the brand (6+8+6 = 20). 686 has since developed some killer technologies, but always with the emphasis on weather protection, cutting edge styling and support of the DIY ethos. 686 is a proudly independent snowboard brand and it’s rad they’re going to be stepping up in the UK.  http://686.com
