Because you aren't as hairy as a badger.

Woodland creatures are known to be robust when it comes to winter, with thick coats of fur or excellent den-digging skills so they can withstand much of winter's harshest weather. Unlike woodland creatures, humans aren't (generally) coated with thick and luscious fur to keep us warm all winter long, so 686 made the Men's Woodland Insulated jacket, enabling you to feel just as cozy as the fuzzy little creatures that run across the crust of the snow in gladed aspen treelines.

The Woodland rocks a woven polyester shell that's DWR treated to seal out the elements. The yarn it's stitched from is a waterproof and breathable non-pill dyed yarn, which enables 686 to get away with some really rad prints that might make you feel like a lumberjack. Sealed critical seams help to keep the water outside, along with a powder skirt and snug wrist gaiters with thumb holes. Quilted synthetic insulation keeps you feeling super toasty inside, and a removable hood will keep your noggin warm as well. Ample pocket space offers places to stash your media, essentials, and PB&J's for a day of shredding.
