Send Mother Nature back to the drawing board.
Equip yourself with the Burton Women's AK 2L Altitude Jacket and laugh in the face of foul weather on your high alpine excursion. With a Gore-Tex fabric and Burton's engineered AK fit, the Altitude has become the first choice for avid powder-seekers who won't let anything stand in their way.
Guaranteed waterproof breathable two-layer Gore-Tex fabric blocks out the elements while allowing vapor to escape so you don't get drenched with sweat on the inside, and fully taped seams with Gore-Seam tape prevent moisture from seeping in through the cracks. The legendary AK fit features engineered articulation to allow for total freedom of movement whether you're skinning up the trail or shredding down the face, and it allows room to layer underneath without being baggy or bulky.
Zippered underarm vents let you dump heat when you're bootpacking through knee-deep snow, and the contoured hood with a micro-adjust cinch shields your head from the storm when the weather suddenly turns on you. A removable stretch powder skirt with jacket-to-pant interface keeps the snow out on waist-deep days.

- Fit: True to size
I recently moved up to Alaska and this jacket has truly proven itself! It's has been able to handle any weather thrown at me from powder to pouring rain.
I usually wear a small and it fit great in the store but it really only fits one down jacket layer under it. If I could go back I would have gone one size up to allow for more layering for the colder days on the slope!
