    Send Mother Nature back to the drawing board.

    Equip yourself with the Burton Women's AK 2L Altitude Jacket and laugh in the face of foul weather on your high alpine excursion. With a Gore-Tex fabric and Burton's engineered AK fit, the Altitude has become the first choice for avid powder-seekers who won't let anything stand in their way.

    Guaranteed waterproof breathable two-layer Gore-Tex fabric blocks out the elements while allowing vapor to escape so you don't get drenched with sweat on the inside, and fully taped seams with Gore-Seam tape prevent moisture from seeping in through the cracks. The legendary AK fit features engineered articulation to allow for total freedom of movement whether you're skinning up the trail or shredding down the face, and it allows room to layer underneath without being baggy or bulky.

    Zippered underarm vents let you dump heat when you're bootpacking through knee-deep snow, and the contoured hood with a micro-adjust cinch shields your head from the storm when the weather suddenly turns on you. A removable stretch powder skirt with jacket-to-pant interface keeps the snow out on waist-deep days.

    Fun Jacket - Gortex waterproof shell

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I love the jacket. The quality is excellent, especially for the greater than 50% off price I got here at Back Country. I get lots of around town comments and will enjoy it here in WA state.
    However, Size wise it runs somewhat small. I couldn't even zip the small I found in a local store, so from BC I bought the medium which is my usual size (I wear 8-10 size garments). The hips are snug and the zipper is NOT double, so I cannot unzip from the bottom to allow for squatting and more athletic activity. Spring skiing and around town only, since there is not enough room to put a puffy vest or heavier layer underneath. I will not be able to use for back country trips. (The large was way long in the torso and arms, and not much bigger in the hips.)

    Don't like Velcro on the Lapel

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size

    I actually loved this jacket. The fit was true to size. I liked the color, the cozy pockets, and the price, even though it doesn't have a lot of features I look for when spending this sort of money on a Gore-Tex jacket. The #1 reason I didn't keep this jacket, was because of the velcro that secures the lapel next to the front zipper. I don't know if you've ever fallen in powder with velcro on, but it sucks, and sometimes it's hard to get the lapel to stay shut once the velcro is frozen.

    In addition, I'm hairy and so are my dogs, it's a tedious task pulling out fuzz and hair when it starts to build up in the velcro. I've owned a jacket that had velcro going up the front like this one before, and have learned my lesson.

    Awesome quality!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I recently moved up to Alaska and this jacket has truly proven itself! It's has been able to handle any weather thrown at me from powder to pouring rain.

    I usually wear a small and it fit great in the store but it really only fits one down jacket layer under it. If I could go back I would have gone one size up to allow for more layering for the colder days on the slope!
