Stay dry, stay stoked.

Snowboarding loses its appeal pretty fast if you get soaked, so Burton made the Men’s Traction Jacket with 10K-rated, fully seam-taped Durashell fabric for supreme moisture protection. A powder skirt keeps out the snow when you drop into the freshies left from last night’s storm, and Burton’s articulated hood fights off the storm that’s still raging. The Traction Jacket also has an MP3 pocket, so it’s easy to crank the music from your favorite seggie through your audio helmet. And you’ll never feel held back thanks to the total freedom of movement allowed by this jacket’s relaxed fit. - Fall 2008.

Is the brown color pretty sweet or am I gonna look like a shredding turd?

Best Answer Responded on

No its not turd, its mocha. You should get a white beanie so you look like a nice mug of mocha, the girls will be all over you trying to get some of your warmness.

Sick Jacket

Wanted a jacket without a liner for the warm or windy days. This thing doesn't disappoint. The material is burly, and there are more than enough pockets for everything. I sort of had to guess what size i should have. I'm 6'0", weigh 180lbs, and the large fits a little long around the hips, but the jacket is comfy around the chest and shoulders, and is a good overall fit. Haven't got to wear in the cold yet, but i was sweating within minutes trying it on. I'm pretty sure i'll be wearing this more than my super cold day heavy jacket.
Also, dogfunk was perfect with shipping times. I ordered on monday, was emailed that jacket had shipped tuesday, and was in my hands early afternoon on thursday.

im bout 6'0 tall and a slim guy, if i get a medium will it be long enough or should i get a large?
i kno someone asked already but it didnt help any

Responded on

I got this jacket several weeks ago in size Large and am 5'11. The fit in terms of length is perfect, I wouldn't risk going down a size. Better to have a progressive baggier fit that can take layering than a jacket that rides a bit too far up your arms.

This jacket is huge!..I'm 6'4 and 210 and the XL rests on my hamstrings...Crazy long but width wise not too bad...I'm hoping the Large will fit better cause it is sweet...

How tall is this jacket??? im thinking...

How tall is this jacket??? im thinking about buying it in xl and im 5'9... Would it be tall???

Responded on

The Traction jacket is going to be taller than the next brands coat, it features Burton's team fit which is 'longer and roomier' as they put it. You're probably looking at a 36" center back length.

Awesome Jacket

It was a little big but it does the job. I suggest if you're 5'7 150 pounds get a small. Any taller I suggest a medium. Other then it being too big, great jacket. Wouldn't ask for anything more! Thanks dogfunk

Responded on

hi! thanks for your review, just wondering do you think a chick can wear this jacket? i was also wondering what your chest/waist measurements are?

thanks so much

Responded on

i would measure yourself using their sizing guide around the chest. if you're larger than what it says, it might fit pretty snug or tight. not to mention the large is a little long on me at 6 feet tall, so take into consideration that if you have a large chest but aren't very tall, this thing will fit you like a dress with very long sleeves.

Responded on

I'm not sure if a girl could wear this jacket. Its not baggy in the chest area, more fitted feeling, so if you're packing the puppies this jacket wouldn't work. Plus if you order a size larger it just adds more length to the arms and the skirt of the jacket not to the chest area as much.

Burton Traction jacket & Customer Support

I had to return the jacket because I ordered size too large.
Let me share this important credit card experience with all readers. Backcountry.com is very good about refunds. I got mine within a couple days of their receiving the returned jacket.
Unlike the-house.com. I had to return boots that were too tight. The-House .com received the boots on Mar 4. Today is Mar 24. I have now called 4 times asking about my refund. I am now being told expect refund Apr 1. Also return shipping cost me over $20.

Is the Burton TRaction Jacket warm enough to wear while snowboarding, or do you have 2 wear a lot of layers underneath 2 keep warm?

Best Answer Responded on

It's pretty waterproof, and is taped, so it won't take a lot of layers, but that all depends on where you board.

What is the English translation of the Farsi print?

Dude, seriously? Haha, I don't know if many people on this site will be able to answer that one. Let us know if you find out.

Responded on

Dude, seriously, Iran's version of a "small" ski resort is at 13,000 Feet.

There are plenty of skiers and snowboarders there.


a lot of them have their family send them stuff from abroad, so don't be surprised if they are on this website.

The translation is on the internet somewhere, and it's written on the inside of the jacket.

Great jacket!

My son picked this out for his Christmas present. Avid snow boarder - he loved the jacket and worked great on the mountain!

Cool Shit

Like i live in colorado and this shit has kept me so f-ing warm. Its not insulated but when the winds blowing you can barely feel the cold.

There's a zipper inside the jacket above the butt... what's it for?

Responded on

{haha... if the pocket is hidden, its probably a 420 kit pocket, a.k.a. a pocket for a little bit of weed, to take to the treeline and smoke.}if the zipper goes all around the bottom it could be to zip to your pants burton has this on many pants jackets, if it is for a small pocket then above is correct. although it says it does not have zip in compat so i think above may be right
