The ultimate splitboarding jacket.
Getting caught in the backcountry with the wrong tools can spell disaster, and that includes outerwear. The Burton Men's AK 3L Freebird Gore-Tex Jacket is the ultimate splitboarding jacket thanks to materials and features engineered to make your next trek into the wilderness more enjoyable so you can focus on the ride.
Gore-Tex Stretch fabric stands up to anything that Old Man Winter can throw at you, and it's extremely packable so it doesn't take up space in your pack when you're hiking in your mid-layer. Gore Micro Grid-backed Pro Shell panels in strategic places increase breathability so you stay cool on intense climbs. Utility pockets at the chest hold your splitboard skins to keep them warm when you're riding so they stay nice a sticky for the hike back up for round two.
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 pushing for the summit, and the contoured hood with a micro-adjust cinch shields your head from the storm when the weather suddenly socks you in. A removable stretch powder skirt with jacket-to-pant interface keeps the snow out on when nature rewards you with the deep stuff.

Will you be getting any more true black in size medium?

Best jacket ever!
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Bulletproof and yet very soft and flexible. Lightweight and very breathable.
- Zipper is sturdy and hence a bit stiff
- The hood could be bigger to fit the helmet better.

Off Piste Slayer !
They should just name it King of the Mountain or maybe king of outer bounds ! With its light weight packable design and Gore Tex Pro Stretch you are ready for any back country element! The full zipper pit zips are great for touring and the new removable waist gaiter is just a small added bonus. Stamp of approval by all the AK riders!
