Immortality possibly not included, maybe.
Fact: Millions of people die every year. Possible fact: None of them have ever died while wearing the AK 2L Turbine Jacket from Burton. Is the Turbine Jacket the secret to eternal life? It is a mystery. What is not a mystery is that that Burton used Gore-Tex with fully taped Gore-Seams to make sure you stay dry in big storms and loaded up on PrimaLoft insulation to keep you warm when the temp drops. Strategic venting and ultra-breathable fabrics keep you from overheating when you’re working hard.
- The Gore-Tex Performance 2L Shell keeps out water and lets your body breathe
- Fully taped seams with Gore-Seam tape help prevent water from penetrating through the stitching
- Riri Aquazip water-resistant zippers help stop water from sneaking in through zips
- The removable waist gaiter keeps pow from blowing up your backside and means you can sport the Turbine around town without excess waist-bunching
- Sig fit gives you room to layer without excess bagginess and a little extra sleeve to go over your gloves
- Micro-adjust hood cinch lets you quickly tighten and adjust your hood with a quick-release shock cord

AK the best
Great Jacket! and it's really warm!
Best jacket I've ever owned
I have this jacket from a couple years back though it's basically identical to this year's model. I ride in Montana and see some pretty gnarly conditions. This thing has taken on trees, storms, rocks, and anything else I've thrown at it. It still looks brand new too. All I wear is a patagonia cap 3 baselayer underneath and I'm good to 10 degrees no problem. If you can snag this on sale do yourself a favor and buy it. Oh and I'm 5'9 175 lbs. and wear a medium and it fits perfect.
about to wreck shop
Got this jacket in true black and it looks fucking sexy. the red zips and other red accents look badass and go great with my boots, gloves, etc. jacket is very light and the gore-tex is hands down the best feature their is out there. i feel indestructible from the elements in this jacket. sizing is true to size, fits perfect. also the goggle pocket is kind of hidden in the chest so if you ever get frisked there'll be little chance of anything in this pocket getting found, small objects, anyway. the pow grip is an amazing feature and its so worth it right at that moment you strap in. riri aquazip, another great feature, kind of hard to get use to just because its a more heavy duty zip. overall amazing jacket, worth every cent, so far..
I like the jacket a lot, and really like the way it looks. The toke gray is awesome. I don't know how describe it really, but it almost looks like it has a heather in it. Also, it appears as though it will be very comfy and warm. It's got a small puff to it that will probably make it comfier than normal and warm. I'll have to let you know in a few days...Also, these run quite large... I'm about 6'1, 225 pounds and was a college athlete, but the sleeves on an XL run past my finger tips, so i'm returning it for a L. Kinda weird because I wear a XL in every other jacket I own.
The colors on this thing are pretty awesome
love it! this jacket awesome ! i have the Lucia/Absynth/tokegrey.... First things first the "tokegrey" on this jacket is... well its rather a light white not really like the picture.. but then again better in person.. but if your one who cares about getting your jacket dirty...well this isn't the jacket for you. HAHAHAHA! the Tokegrey..."lightwhite" would show dirt easy. (just a heads up) i thought it would be more like the picture as well. but aghh i like it. over all the jacket is kinda on the big side so really a MED... kinda like a large. if you compare Burton Poacher jacket "sig fit" an Burton [ak] jackets "sig fit" the MED sizes.. the [ak] is much bigger then the poacher MED size... the sleves an length are a little longer. . . hope you're geting what im saying... hahah!....an thennnn... seems very warm an comfortable. "cant go wrong with the [ak]"
