As the lightest, most stashable jacket in Burton's collection, the Burton Men's AK 3L Freebird Gore-Tex Jacket is a technical touring jacket for the splitboard crowd. Its highly packable design takes up minimal space in your pack, while the bellowed chest pockets accommodate climbing skins when you're transitioning from touring to riding.
The Gore-Tex Pro Stretch 3-layer membrane delivers legendary waterproofing, with strategically engineered stretch panels for freedom of movement. Reinforcing the jacket against abrasion while enhancing breathability, the 40D Gore Micro Grid Backer lines the jacket's interior for high levels of comfort and near-bombproof durability. Fully sealed with Gore-Seam tape, this jacket won't leak outside moisture, even when you're riding in the wettest maritime snow and deepest powder.
Zippered underarm vents channel cool, outside air over your upper body on the sweaty uphill slog. Internal dump and media pockets store small snacks, accessories, and your smartphone. Other tour-friendly features include water-resistant YKK zippers, removable powder skirt, and jacket-to-pant interface for seamless connection with Burton snow pants.
