Burton AK 2L Stagger Jacket
Hi I weight...

Burton AK 2L Stagger Jacket
Hi I weight 145 pounds 5'10
Im not sure what size small or Med
I dont want a jacket to big or baggy - will layer underneath

Responded on

You will probably want the medium, Ian. The small may be a lil' short in the sleeves when you extend your arms. Just for the mere sleeve length, I'd start with a medium.

It will not be too baggy but will give you room to layer a bit.

If it doesn't work you can always exchange for the small.

I think the MEdium will be the best fit for you my man.

Write your question here...Does anybody...

Write your question here...Does anybody know if this does or does not zip into the pants? The specs say no, but i know the Ak Cylic does and there are no more of those left in the small dark green combo. Really dig the zip thec action..

can anyone tell me about sizing in general...

can anyone tell me about sizing in general for Burton jackets?
I am looking at an XL but not sure if it will be big enough and XXL's are as rare a rocking horse sh*t. I am 6'5" and 220 pounds, i have long arms and wide shoulders. Is the XL a big fit or will i look like i'm wearing a sleeping bag if i get an XXL?

Responded on

Hey Glen,
I would not buy the XL if I were you. It will not fit length wise. I would look for some other Burton gear in XXL, and some of the Ronin XL styles will fit. Hope this helps!

Neat stuff

for me AK is totally the right thing. If you ride pow and don't want to get wet this is the right choice.
Jacket has the perfect fit, not too huge

Burton likes to keep you dry

Have the classic fit that Burton has used for years, I personally love it. The Gore-tex keeps you super dry no matter what your doing (If you take a shower that's your choice). There's enough pockets to get the job done, but not so many you feel bad not using um. Wish it had hand gaiters but it's not a must have.

Comparison: 6'1 160lbs---->XL is a loose fit but not ridiculous.

hi there,
I am wondering if the small size...

hi there,
I am wondering if the small size electric blue is on sale too or is it shipping for 399.95$ ?? It says 49% off so Im a little bit confused!!

hey dude, whatever the price reads, thats what it is......theres lots of strange price curves to burtons lines on this website...the reason why is because Burton dictates the pricing for all their products being sold on backcoutry. if elecrtric Blue in small is in high demand, they keep the price high. its all about burton making money :-(...sucks too cuz thats a sick jacket

Come on Burton

The good people at Gore-Tex dun gone and done it again. If you buy the accompanying pants you can zip these together for a full waterproof suit, with powder skirt, very Nice. The Baggy look is good but I'm not sure why they would want the sleeve so long. Overall great jacket esp. with the pant combo looks great, I got the stone. But here is the rub... the hood has no drawstring closure and is no where near big enough for a helmet, everyone wears a helmet anymore. This should only be annoying when on lift and the wind is whipping, otherwise who uses the hood, but still, who at Burton was on a 'smoke break' before designing the hood. Boo. Great deal from Backcountry!

Lightweight but warm

This jacket is very comfortable, roomy in all the right areas. Has tons of pockets for all the stuff that might be needed on the slopes. It looks great too.

Christmas Gift

Bought for my son who has used Burton coats before and wanted the better quality fabric in this model. As he goes to school in NY it is well worth the price.

Great shell. Good and tough.

Great Shell. Very happy with my purchase. I have a 39" chest. Initially got a Medium, which was slightly too tight in the shoulders and returned it for a Large, which is bigger than I like, but better than the medium. The material used for this jacket is good and tough. I ride Northeast trees so I'm constantly in contact with branches. With this jacket, I've had no worries about the jacket getting snagged or ripping (stay away from the Cyclic line). Keeps you dry and warm with the right layers. Hood fits over my helmet. Perfect pocket placement and number. Ipod pouch is useless though. It's too low in the inner pocket and your ipod will bounce around when riding. I use my fleece layer's pocket instead. I have classic Black. Won't go out of style next year.

Killer Shell- Burton AK 2L Stagger

New sig fit is great, roomy in the right places(shoulders for mobility) but not to big as it is from the AK line. From chair laps to all day hikes OB, this shell kills it. Super breathable and tough enough to slash through the east coast tree's.

I have last years model in the 3D Landscape...

I have last years model in the 3D Landscape and love it! great jacket all around i generally wear a large but its way too baggy but thats just me. I like a lil baggy but the large was way too baggy for my liking, anyone know where i can find the Radical green in a medium ive looked everywhere

Responded on

Check out evogear. I was just at their store location today and they have a medium on the rack.

Best Ever

Amazing Jacket! Absolutely one of the best jackets I've bought. Was thinking about a couple from Arc'Teryx but the thinner 2 layer Gore-Tex is perfect. It keeps you completely dry but it doesn't overheat you at all. Great pocket location, easy to reach zippers. Cut slightly baggier but it's more so you could layer because it doesn't look like it's cut baggy. My only advice is if you wear a helmet religiously, be forewarned. The hood does NOT have enough room for a helmet. I have a hard time putting the hood on even without a helmet. Other than that absolutely best jacket.

thumbs up

Definitely love the jacket. It is light yet warm. Kept me dry in the wet stuff and looks great. Stoked about how it zips into my AK pants to really keep the snow out!

Truly a great coat. Fits loose, but not gangsta baggy. I'm 6'2 200lbs and the xl is roomy, but perfect with a fleece underneath...

Lots of pockets for all your gear(also has ipod pocket/cord holder) and a great venting system with pit zips as well as front vents that circulate air to cool off quickly..

Truly a great jacket..

do they run in a x-small size in electric...

Great Jacket

Jacket is Gore-Tex a shell, I would order 1 size up because you will probably have layer up. I bought the Mountain Hardwear Monkey Man fleece to go underneath, it works great. Jacket really stands up to the elements. Zippers are heavy duty. Overall a great jacket.
