Not scared of a silly little full-on blizzard.
Flip off Old Man Winter from behind the safety of your Burton AK 2L Cyclic Gore-Tex Jacket. Gore-Tex fabric protects against everything from blinding snow and hellish hail to freak rainstorms, and it's tough to hold up to abuse from rocky terrain and hidden branches.
Guaranteed waterproof breathable two-layer Gore-Tex fabric shields you from the elements from the outside 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 AK fit features engineered articulation to allow for total freedom of movement and it allows room to layer underneath without being baggy or bulky.
Zippered underarm vents let you dump heat when you're huffing it to the peak, 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.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have been buying BURTON jackets for years. This is the first AK jacket I have bought, and is definitely my favourite.
I am 6'1" tall and weigh about 175lb I have long arms and a long torso and this jacket fits great. It is a little loose around the body with only a long sleeve T-shirt underneath, but when out and about dressed for the weather it leaves just enough room to keep you mobile. I love the zip off pow skirt... it allows me to wear this jacket to work daily.
Lastly, the waterproofing is amazing. I picked this jacket up in Chicago and got blasted with some rain... I only wish I had been wearing the pants instead of jeans (I am sure they are great too).
