Live life without limits. This is the philosophy of 686, reflected in their desire to push boundaries in design, construction & interaction. Founded by Michael Akira West in 1992, 686 produces snowboarding apparel and gear inspired by the South California snowboard scene. The brand name 686 stems from personal dates in Mike’s life, but has now become synonymous with forward-thinking, technical designs. At Freeze, we are proud to stock a wide range of 686 products in an array of colours & styles.
