5 years later and mountain bunnies still be like... "AHHHHH DAMNNNNNN look at this fly mofo with the steeeziest swagga on the slopes..."

Review is for the pants and jacket matching set, so skip to the bottom for the pants

This jacket is like wearing 100% dopeness.
It's seen NYC streets and Swiss Alps, It's seen Lake Tahoe strippers and Utah's dirty water beer spillage, and it skill cranks hard as hell.

I rock this with a base layer (Cloud veil half zip top, and arc'teryx bottoms) I usually throw a dope ass tshirt over that like Mr. Mittens's big adventure or Raging Panda murder destructo bear) and its warm all day. Vent's are good for when its hottta than a muddafugga out there and its got lots a pockets for the goodness. And the only thing that sucks is that the hood is too small for a brain bucket... but it does work if you rock this sucka out for a night on the town. Which you can do... because its fly as hell.

Rock it with the matching pants and you are basically the coolest mamajama to jam mama's in the Gondola... 4 out of 5 times on the tram, some bitty will grab your booty and be like "let me get somaaa daat sugarrrrrr" and that's a FACT. Only problem with the pants is the back pocket flap things with the Velcro collect snow/slush on pow days, the more you sit the more you get frozen ass chunks, but it max's out when the Velcro is covered and it doesn't really cause a problem because these shizzels are water proof as H E double hockey sticks. 6'1 and 180 lbs and Large fits nice and snug for the fresh look. That baggyasssbagbaggness is old and goofy.

Seriously, been rocking this shizz in the fullest since 2009 and its bomb proof.
Zip the Jacket into the pants and hot dammmmmn hommie you can cartwheel the shizzle out of that landing and not get a frosty trumpet...

This pants are as dope as crack rock in the 80's... For the starters... they are a bit tight but thats what you want when you rock the slim jim fit. They fit exactly as you would expect them to, or should expect them too... I am 6'2 185 and they were a bit more snug in the guts then I had predicted after I got my base's on... simple solution was to upgrade my bases from a double stack of lame-o 8 year old long jons and stackers, to a Roh-AR tight that made the whole setup rock harder then Cobain on Heroin... The pants zip into the jacket so well that its bomb proof... They never let your arse get wet, and the crotch zips work very well and dont snag easy. The only ONLY problem I have, is sitting in some pow or even in the wet crud, the velcro piece (that is kinda velcrow and pattern tab on the butt) collects snow like a mongolian snow globe hoarder... needless to say you end up with two chuncks of butt rocks that follow you around all day... It might of just been the way Utah snow is, but I will know more when I hit the slop in the N-E region for newyears... The pockets on the front of the pants are pretty much useless too, they are tight as hell and I would be afraid to puncture something (I DO NOT WANT TO PUNCTURE ANYTHING IN THAT REGION but some of you may prince alberts.)... then again, what would I ever put in those pockets anyway? thats what your jacket and pack is for...

The crotch on them is a bit snug but again this is expected when you order tight pants... what I do like is that the legs do not funnel in like skinny jeans they stay even the whole way down and esentally if you wanted you can ghetto zip so they are bell's which is pretty playa in the steeze department... one of the best things about it is no one really rocks this setup or even this style so you dont look like every other d-bag who rocks the "I am cool because I dont conform to the rules and my boxers hang out the back of my snowboarding pants when its 20 below" look.

Also the snowskirts on the legs work great and the uplatch for the parking lot protection is a must have to keep your threads looking spiff...

Don't be a follower, be a leader with some new style...

The only thing bigger then the air you will get in these aerodynamic slims is the buldge the bunnys wont be able to take there eyes off of...

Rock out with you're **** out!

So, I asked how pimp this ish was before a trip to Utah... No one had an answer so I rolled the dice and with this setup... DID NOT CRAP OUT. I would give this gear a full Love it rating not only because I was shockingly dry the ENTIRE trip... But because I also looked fly as hell and did not see a single person rocking the same setup at all on any of the four mt's I have hit so far in this gear...

If baby Jesus made a coat, he would make one out of magic crystals and invisiable golden thread... It would let you fly and make you run faster then a speeding bullet that is strapped to one of those planes that flys faster then speeding bullets !!!

For the rest of us, we have the burton Hustla setup. You look fly as hell, you stay bone dry even in dumping conditions, you keep it real all at the same time...

I will be taking this setup to the wet slop of the north east for newyears... and the only thing I bet is going to be getting wet... is the chica's watching me shred face and bomb the tree's like a lumberjack with c4 fetish....

Pockets are good and reliable, quick access to the inner stash and the outters are pretty good... one thing that was ehh was the button pocket on the left lapel.. the button is tough as tonka to get open and closed even with gloves off.. but thats why there is five other pockets...

The zipper is dope and had no problems linking up and even at the top the face shield is as comfy as your velvatine rabbit.

Waterproof? this thing is niagra proof so far... and when snow gets on this bad boy the patterns show up better in the black untill it sluffs off... So you look good and stay dry.

The hood is good if you dont rock a dumpling bucket but with one it doesnt fit at all... I wish the hood could be removed because its not really needed however it does keep the back of your neck locked up from snow when you eat a bingger trying to stomp that rodeo in the back country...

The pow skirt works great and the zip in on the matching pants is even better... only down side is farts tend to waft up from the pants if your not careful and you catch a mouth of mush mush from the tush tush... (use your leg vents when you pass some ol PBR backpressure)

Lastly the pit zips are good but they should have made the zips go the reverse way... its not a big deal at all really but I am picky like a 3rd grader with a snot fetish...

over all I would give this jacket a 8 out of 10... only because it didnt come with two naked chicks to help me recover from a long day of floatin the stashes and booting kickers...

hahaha I wish I never had to wear pants... but If I tryed that on a chairlift I might freeze the ol brajole. Not a pretty site... I was serious with the question though... Guess alot of the humor from Tramdock, Steepandcheap and Whiskeymilitia doesnt spill over to BC champs... so with out further wisecrackery or whippersnappery.. anyone can hook up some knowladge on if these pants and hold up to some slushly puppy conditions?? Thanks though Mike, your support for nudechairlift rides might prevoke some super streaker runs this spring!

Ritalin, nah I wish I had it though for 15 hour work days :( 10k is pretty good (thanks for the break down) but I was more looking for someone who has rocked them to give me an idea of build quality... Sure it says fully taped seams and burton has started making pretty tech heavy gear but I never messed with the durashell 2 and so on.... Had they been goretex (they would be twice or three times the price) but I wouldnt doubt them being able to be used as surfing pants aswell hahaha.... I am a boarder that was a correct assumption and while I am not going to be sitting in the park all day (I much prefer bombing glades and thrashing cliffs) I do get some sloppy conditions thrown my way on the north east coast... nothing worse then a wet ass on a chairlift rollin up whiteface in late January... you will lose patches of skin on arse behind... You may be right about the snowbunnies but the ones who like it are the ones I'm after!! :) Thanks Angus :)

whats the steelo with these fly ass threads?? is this setup going to cut it on the east coast storm front... is it going to hang in the deep Utah pow pow ?? BC in early Jan?? This setup drips flavor like a 12 oz fillet and is sure to get the snowbunnies wet, but is this going to keep me dry??10k enough ? 15k enough ?? I am rocking a bombproof titanium right now but its so hoplessly bland that it makes me barf up unbuttered toast... Can anyone tell me what the deal is with this setup ?
