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 shields you from the elements from the outside 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. 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 from the storm when the weather suddenly turns on you. A stretch powder skirt with jacket-to-pant interface keeps the snow out on waist-deep days.

First Hike Fresh Lines
The Blade Jacket is new for AK. I just started hiking into the back country this year and was stoked on this piece. Its perfect for that new AK customer which I am. I wanted to keep some extra change in my pocket and I was able to with this piece. See you suckers in the back country
