Hands down my favorite shell for a shred session. Great fit other than out runs a little big so size down. Sometimes I use it as a rain shell. Only down side was after a couple uses the lettering started coming off but the guys at Burton took care of it.

Cut interferes with leg motion. And probably not worth the money.
The cut of this jacket is such that it came partway down my thighs. The bottom of the jacket is not flared at all so this resulted in restricted leg motion. Imagine strapping on a leather belt around your pants, then letting that belt slide partway down your thighs. That's exactly what it was like.
The easy solution for Burton would be to either flare the bottom of the jacket or to use a double zipper system.
Aside from this, it's a fairly good jacket, but looking at the craftsmanship and materials, it's probably not worth its $300 price tag unless you can get it on sale.

Awesome all season jacket
I was a bit skeptical when I got this jacket - I thought all the AK stuff was overhyped.
This jacket is the shit. If you ride all season it will be the only jacket you need.
Im doing another season in Whistler and I wear this jacket everyday. All you need to change is your layers depending on the weather.
It has all the simple features you need - just enough pockets, nice fit that covers most of your face in a storm, good length.
On a cold day you will need a good fleece underneath to stay warm but what you also get is a versatile jacket that will breathe well when your huffing and puffing on hikes.
I am sold on Gore-tex. Not only is it waterproof and windproof but it stays that way the longest out of all the technologies out there.
A Gore-tex shell is the only do it all jacket in my opinion.
Sick Jacket! if you are considering it, pull the trigger!
This Jacket is the business! Had a previous version which lasted for about 8 years and was finally due for an upgrade. Sweet fitting (i'm 5'9" and about 150lbs and I got the small) plenty of room for layering underneath. Got the afterburn colour which is a bright orange, had plenty of comments on how sick it looks already
What is the sleeve length of this...
What is the sleeve length of this jacket?
Is the after burn colour more red or orange...
Is the after burn colour more red or orange I've seen quite a few pics of it and I can't tell.
The Afterburn Color is More " Hunter Orange" than a burnt red.
The colour on this site is pretty accurate
Gore-Tex performance for every month of the season
Strom Cycle to spring slush. If you're looking for a high performance 100 day a year jacket that dose not lack style. Look no further. Did you know Burton uses balistic stitching meaning every piece gets 16 stitches per inch. This will not blow out on you.
Are you guys gonna get the other colors?...
Are you guys gonna get the other colors? Specifically Keef.
