More than meets the eye.
The understated style of the Burton Women's AK Blade Jacket may fool you into thinking it's just another ordinary piece of outerwear, but you'd be sorely mistaken. Gore-Tex fabric, a functional fit, and loads of features make this top-of-the-line jacket a force to be reckoned with.
Guaranteed waterproof breathable two-layer Gore-Tex fabric blocks out snow, wind, and rain while allowing vapor to escape so you don't get drenched with sweat on the inside. Fully taped seams with Gore-Seam tape prevent moisture from seeping in through the cracks, and brushed tricot fleece and taffeta is placed throughout the lining to provide warmth and a soft, smooth feel.
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 when a storm suddenly rolls in. A removable stretch powder skirt with jacket-to-pant interface keeps the snow out on waist-deep days. Plus, multiple pockets, including a goggle pocket and a season pass pocket, keep your everyday essentials close at hand.
