The ultimate touring jacket.

Getting caught in the backcountry with the wrong tools can spell disaster, and that includes outerwear. The Burton Men's AK 3L Freebird Gore-Tex Jacket is the ultimate splitboarding jacket thanks to materials and features engineered to make your next trek into the wilderness more enjoyable so you can focus on the ride.

Gore-Tex Pro Stretch fabric is guaranteed waterproof and breathable so it stands up to anything that Old Man Winter can throw at you. Plus, it's extremely packable so it doesn't take up space in your pack when you're hiking in your mid-layer. Gore-Seam Tiny Tape-sealed seams and water-resistant YKK zippers prevent water moisture from slipping in through the cracks. Gore Micro Grid-backed Pro Shell panels in strategic places increase breathability so you stay cool on intense climbs. Utility pockets at the chest hold your splitboard skins to keep them warm when you're riding so they stay nice and sticky for the hike back up for round two.

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 pushing for the summit, and the contoured hood with a micro-adjust cinch shields your head from the storm when the weather suddenly socks you in. A removable stretch powder skirt with jacket-to-pant interface allows you to link up to your Burton pants to keep snow out on when nature rewards you with the deep stuff.

Here's what others have to say...

Is there any reason this jacket wouldn't work well as a rain jacket for backpacking/camping?

Best Answer Responded on

It might be a little baggy, as it's designed for wearing layers under it in the snow, but otherwise it should work great.

Responded on

You might note that the zippers are not waterproof, so that' s going to be a point of leakage.

I suspect the powder skirt will be a complete pain in the neck in a camping situation.

Responded on

Actually the zippers are considered water-resistant and the powder skirt zips out of the it would make a decent hiking/camping rain jacket option. I've been wearing my AK stuff all season for years and have never been let down.
