The GLCR Project

In addition to constantly revolutionizing the winter jacket world, 686 have also revolutionized the way to put their products to test. The GLCR project is an extension of the 686 GLCR collection, a project where the real testers are actually the consumers. GLCR, a collection for which YOU could become an official ambassadors.


Ambassadors will not only be given the opportunity to test products, they will also go on trips, receive discounts, and ultimately help shape the future of the GLCR line.

To give you a taste of what kind of adventures are waiting for you with the GLCR project, take a look at the photo gallery below. The pictures, shot during a recent 686 testing trip, feature a passionate group of people, including Quebec's pro snowboarder Matt Belzile, in action with the GLCR gear. If this doesn't make you want to leave the city behind to go on an adventure, you should seriously start asking yourself some questions.
