The cyclical nature of winter.
Much like it's name insinuates, the Burton Men's AK 2L Cyclic Gore-Tex Pant is designed to combat the cyclical nature of wet, snowy, and cold winter conditions, meaning that it's just the ticket to staying nice and dry in the most demanding conditions. Constructed with the ultra-dependable waterproof protection of a Gore-Tex 2-layer membrane, the Cyclic delivers workhorse reliability and industry-leading protection for freeride enthusiasts and 100-day riders alike. Even the seams are fully taped with Gore-Seam tape to prevent moisture from leaking in and dampening your fun on the mountain.
Additionally, the Cyclic features a mesh lining to actively wick moisture off your skin, in turn transporting it through the breathable membrane for enhanced thermal regulation. The inner-thigh vents dump excess body heat when you're slogging uphill in the backcountry and riding on warmer spring days. Not to mention, the engineered articulation brings freedom of movement for riding without restriction. Other key features include YKK water-resistant zippers, an extra-large zippered cargo pocket, and anti-scuff cuffs that resist snagging and premature wear.

I usually don't trust burton softgoods, but heard alot of good things from friends over the AK line. The color and look are great and are exactly what I was looking for. However, after taking this out for half a season, I am noticing slight tears and splitting. As compared to my old Nomis pants, the fame "Gore-Tex" gets a little wet on the rear end. In context, I am not a straps guy who spends half the day sitting on my backside strapping in. I have flow bindings that I step right in without sitting down, so this is very surprising and a little disappointing.
