Stay dry, stay stoked.
Because there's no excuse for a snowboarding jacket to ever allow moisture to invade your core, Burton made the Men's Traction Jacket with waterproof DRYRIDE Durashell 2-Layer fabric. Add fully taped seams, a moisture wicking ALS Mesh and Tricot lining, and all-mountain marauders who refuse to quit on a pow day have all the protection they need to keep going - just like every Burton pro.
- Fully seam-taped DRYRIDE Durashell 2L fabric for supreme moisture protection
- LINK ZIP pants-to-jacket interfaces with Burton jackets to completely keep snow out
- Articulated hood offers superb protection and is engineered to move with the direction of your neck and head
- Burton Sig fit is loose for optimum mobility
- Articulated sleeves and adjustable cuff closures to improve mobility

Im 6' 180lbs and im looking for a jacket...
Im 6' 180lbs and im looking for a jacket thats loose but not baggy at all, I dont want to be swimmin in it. A little tighter in the midsection would be nice. Does this jacket meet my specs and what size should I get, I was thinkin prob a large.
The jacket fits your description pretty solid. It is a standard fit so won't be overly baggy yet you'll have plenty of room to move.
Go for the large... XL will be really really baggy and the medium sleeve lengths may be a little short. If it doesn't work they always have an amazing return policy so you can swap for the correct size.
Ryan speaks the truth.
Great jacket. Looks nice, and has a lot of functionality. Pass holder under left breast pocket is cool, vents are great (be careful, zipper can get caught if you're doing it yourself), and it can connect to burton pants if you own a pair (I don't yet). I just wish the hood was detachable.
Do the storm flaps have magnetic buttons?...
Do the storm flaps have magnetic buttons? I can't find this info for most burton jackets actually, does anyone know where to look?
No magnetic buttons that I know of. I'm pretty sure it is just velcro.
Got one this year, been in sub 0 temps on some days and rain on others. Kept me warm and dry. Enough room to layer with it and doesn't feel sloppy. The zip into burton pants is the best, it can be a pain to zip at first and bathroom breaks but once you are zipped and riding it rocks, don't get a load of snow up the back after wrecks, no freezing chairlift drafts, and if you sit down putting on bindings or waiting for some bozo to clear a landing it nice. Hood could be a bit bigger to fit helmet is my only complaint. Sure its not a high dollar alpine jacket but at this price its a dope addition, hell I haven't even used my other jackets this year.
Exactly what I was looking for. True fit and great style. Highly recommend buying this jacket with Burton pants as the back of the jacket and pants zip and snap together keeping your backside free of ice; at least for me.
This jacket is pretty awesome. I'm 6'4 and a little over 200lbs and the XL is perfect width and length wise. Definitely keeps the water/snow out but you're gonna need to layer up on cold days. All kinds of pockets and the collar comes up high to protect your grill from the wind and such. Enjoy
The Burton traction jacket has been great so far. I've been using it for a little over 2 months and it has held up great. It is extremely water proof and decently warm. I recomend wearing a sweatshirt under it. The only draw back for me was the fact that it does not have a season pass holder on the inside. Over all it is a great jacket.
great jacket love it nd its stylish
Does the 2010 Burton Traction Jacket have...
Does the 2010 Burton Traction Jacket have built in wrist gaiters?
yes it does i believe so

Is the 2010 Burton traction jacket smaller...
Is the 2010 Burton traction jacket smaller in size than the 2009 ? Because the 2010 is a sig fit and the 2009 is a team fit.
Hey Sam, good catch. You nailed it--the 2010 Traction jacket is a Sig fit and the 09 is Team fit. Sig fit is still plenty loose, just a little slimmer through the body than last year's Traction jacket.
