Everywhere. It’s in the name. This was the fabric chosen above all others to center the 686 Everywhere apparel around. The perfect amount of stretch. Just the right durability in the nylon to make it move with you and drape just right. Breathable but with a capable water and stain resistant finish and with an Ultraviolet Protection Factor of 40+. If you wanted to create a piece of apparel that had to perform at a high level across the board, Everywhere fabric is up for the job.
Ultraviolet Protection Factor gauges a fabric's effectiveness at filtering both ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) light. In everyday terms, a rating of UPF 40+ means the fabric allows less than 2.5% UV transmission. UPF-rated clothing enhances protection against UV-related health risks. Increase your personal safety and decrease your reliance on sunscreen by covering up with our UPF-rated clothing.
Comfort and stretch are great. They look sharp and are clearly high quality. Wear them all the time.
