Stand your ground in the face of the freeze.
When winter's getting all up in your grill, give it the ol' one-two with the Burton Men's AK 2L Swash Gore-Tex Jacket. With materials designed to withstand the gnarliest storms and most rugged terrain, a functional fit for unrestricted mobility, and synthetic insulation to help you brave sub-zero temps, the Swash is your best weapon against the smack-talk of Old Man Winter.
Every Joe Schmo knows the value of Gore-Tex: fully waterproof, with the ability to breathe so you stay dry from the inside as well as from the outside. The Swash uses a two-layer Gore-Tex membrane, outfitted with fully taped seams to prevent moisture from seeping in through the cracks. There's 60g Primaloft synthetic insulation in the upper back and front body to keep your core toasty without overheating the rest of your body, and underarm zips and a vented chest pocket to move moisture away from your skin when you're hiking for turns or hot-lapping the park.
The Swash rocks Burton's signature AK fit, with engineered articulation that allows for total freedom of movement and room for layering. Pull down the Powder Gasket cuffs and snap the removable stretch powder skirt to compatible pants for a bombproof snow suit when things get stupidly deep, and go show January that you're not scared of nothin'.

The Gore-Tex keeps you dry and it has some insulation in it to keep you toasty. It has a great fit to it (not super long, but not short). I've put over 250 on this jacket and it's finally time to upgrade. Definitely pleased with this purchase given how long it's lasted me.
