When whiskey-freezingly cold temperatures tag along with record snowfall totals, brave the cold in the Burton Women's AK Baker Insulator Women's Down Jacket. You'll be reaping the freshies while all the hypothermic wannabes retreat to the lodge to nurse hot chocolates and talk about how they wish they were in Florida.
The Baker's 800-fill down insulation is toasty warm, but it's also nice and low-profile, so it's easy to move while you ride, even if you've layered up underneath. It's not designed to be worn in wet weather, but Burton hooked the 20D nylon ripstop shell up with a DWR coating to repel moisture just in case. With a performance-oriented AK fit, the Baker is easy to hike in if that's how you prefer to earn your turns, and has all sorts of resort-friendly touches like an internal media pocket, sleeve pass pocket, and a goggle pocket to keep you riding bell to bell.

Burton AK Baker Insulator Down Jacket
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
It's warm, yet not bulky. The red is a little on the orange side, very standing out. I really like the high neck for it blocks out the harsh cold wind.
Can I wear this while snowboarding? Will it tear if I fall?
You can most definitely wear this while snowboarding. However, it is designed as an internal insulator piece for outerwear. That being said, the material is a buttery soft shell fabric that can be prone to tears. The best thing about it is that it can easily transition from an on-hill piece to and everyday street piece as well.
does the hood detach?
The hood on the Baker Insulator is removable via zipper.
