    More than meets the eye.

    The understated style of the Burton Women's AK Blade Jacket may fool you into thinking it's just another ordinary piece of outerwear, but you'd be sorely mistaken. Gore-Tex fabric, a functional fit, and loads of features make this top-of-the-line jacket a force to be reckoned with.

    Guaranteed waterproof breathable two-layer Gore-Tex fabric blocks out snow, wind, and rain while allowing vapor to escape so you don't get drenched with sweat on the inside. Fully taped seams with Gore-Seam tape prevent moisture from seeping in through the cracks, and brushed tricot fleece and taffeta is placed throughout the lining to provide warmth and a soft, smooth feel.

    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 huffing it to the peak, and the contoured hood with a micro-adjust cinch shields your head when a storm suddenly rolls in. A removable stretch powder skirt with jacket-to-pant interface keeps the snow out on waist-deep days. Plus, multiple pockets, including a goggle pocket and a season pass pocket, keep your everyday essentials close at hand.

    Functional technical shell

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

    I got this jacket this winter season to replace many seasons of Men's Burton AK cyclic jackets that I'd grown accustomed to wearing. I loved how roomy the AK fit of a men's jacket was, it gave me substantial length and maneuverability. It was the whole reason I went away from women's coats in the first place-- I didn't want it hugging my hips, or too short in the length that it kept skooching up my back. Most women's jackets are fashion before much function, so I had just stuck with guy's jackets for awhile to alleviate that problem. But after 4 or 5 seasons of riding in dude clothes, I wanted to see if I could get back on the horse and find women's outerwear that didn't sacrifice performance, function, or maneuverability, but allowed me to regain SOME of my identity as a female on the hill. This jacket was my happy compromise. I'm SO glad I found it!



    While tighter than what I was used to (anything but a trash bag would have felt constricting when compared to what I was used to), I've dramatically gotten used to my new outerwear, and it's incredibly comfortable. I usually ride with a single underlayer underneath (a thicker Cilla fleece pullover top), though depending on the weather I can sometimes get away with something even thinner. Because of the AK line's unbeatable water and windproofing, it protects a lot and helps me hold my heat in, even if it is only just a shell. Another plus: the magenta/ cranberry ("poison") color is deep, vibrant, and beautiful. It's feminine without being overtly "pink", which I appreciate.



    My one gripe (as with most women's jackets) is the lack of functional pockets. I'm always ragingly jealous of my guy friends' plethora of inside and outside pockets in their coats. While it does make the silhouette of the women's jacket a little more unobstructed and streamlined, for functionality sake, it'd be great to have a breast pocket or two (it does have two waist pockets and an internal media pocket, FYI). You can never have too much storage, though!



    One more downside: I'm not sure why, but on EVERY description of this jacket, it mentions a "Removable powder skirt". ....It's definitely not removable, unless you're not shy with a pair of scissors to cut it out. It's sewn in as a part of the jacket, and isn't something you can just pop in and out. Just a head's up if that's something you're looking for in your gear!

    SIZE: Small



    FIT: Burton's "Regular Fit"



    COLOR: Keef / Poison / Acid



    CONSTRUCTION: GORE-TEX fabric and fully GORE-SEAM taping. The jacket is zoned in mapped taffeta and brushed tricot lining to allow for the best combo of warming and breath-ability. Pit zips are mesh free, ideal for backcountry use. The hood is adjustable and fits over helmets with ease. The built-in powder skirt is not removable but very comfortable whether it's done up or not. There are two zip side pockets and one sneaky stash pocket with a slit for your headphones. The beauty of this shell is that it is ideal for wind, wet weather and layering of all kinds. It's going to keep you as warm, cool and/or dry as you'd like to be with minimal weight!



    USE: From village strolls to heli drops, this jacket has seen a lot of days and a lot of places. The regular fit is laid back and easy to rock with any style of snow pants or leggings/jeans. It's also awesome for layering. I can wear this jacket with a long sleeve underneath, or on a cold day with two shirts, a hoodie and a puffy and still zip it up just fine. If you live in a colder climate that you know you'll be layering lots, I would go a size up just to allow for extra room. When you've got LOTS of layers on, the powder skirt can be a little annoying if the jacket is too snug. I'm a GORE-TEX snob, so I won't own a jacket that isn't GORE-TEX and for good reason. This jacket keeps me dry in the coastal weather of Whistler and keeps the wind out while managing to breath enough to keep me dry on the inside when I'm working extra hard for some human-powered turns. The feel is strong, but not too rigid, and keeps its shape well.



    OVERALL: If you're in the market for a jacket, a Burton [ak] is always worth the investment. The tough fabrics will last more days than you can a season. The technical aspects sell its self as far as breath-ability and waterproofing and once again Burton makes tech super stylish.

    LOVE.

    burton ak is the best !!!

    fantastic shell !!! super warm for a shell. if you need more insulation throw a layer under and you are good for sub zero conditions. plenty of pockets. it fits so well and moves so well with you when you are riding

    My Go-To

      I absolutely LOVE this jacket. I got it to replace an AK jacket from a couple of years ago, and have not been disappointed. First of all, the fit is right on point. It's got a cut that helps distinguish you as a lady, but it's not skin tight and allows for easy movement. I am 5'2, 120lbs, and I prefer a loose fit in my snow jackets. I got the Large in this model, which is a little long in the sleeves (as expected) but it's nice and loose. It allows for thicker layers on the cold days, but it's not too much jacket for just wearing a sole base layer for the warmer days. Secondly, the tech on this is bomb. I love having a gore shell. It works very well at keeping the water/snow out, while still allowing breathability. And it's killer in keeping the wind out too! I like the Burton powder skirts (this one is not removable)- they do a good job keeping the snow out on the deeper days, but it doesn't bother you on the days you don't snap it up. So far the zipper has been good on this as well (I have had some trouble in the past with AK zippers), and the pockets are easy to access. I was at first hesitant on the inner pocket- it's not a zip pocket, but it has a full sticky velcro closure. No chance of it ripping open, the seal is good! And last, but most definitely not least, this jacket is mighty swag.

      How warm is this jacket? I have never used a 'shell' skiing the mountains before. I've always had thick insulated jackets because I get cold somewhat easily. I love the look but am wondering if I'll stay warm enough? Note - under my other jackets I also have 2 layers (one base and one ski sweater).
