More than meets the eye.
The understated style of the Burton Women's AK 2L Blade Jacket may fool you into thinking it's just another ordinary ski jacket, but you'd be sorely mistaken. Crafted from Gore-Tex fabric, this jacket offers waterproof, windproof, and breathable protection that enables you to stay dry while riding through some of the toughest winter storms. Brushed tricot fleece and taffeta lining is placed throughout the jacket's interior to provide warmth and a soft, smooth feel.
The AK fit features engineered articulation to allow total freedom of movement while leaving room to layer underneath. Zippered underarm vents let you dump heat when you're hiking the ridge, and the contoured hood, with its micro-adjust cinch, shields your head when stormy weather rolls in. A removable powder skirt with jacket-to-pant interface keeps the snow out when you're bombing down waist-deep powder bowls. Multiple pockets, including a goggle pocket and a media pocket, keep your essentials close at hand.

Was super pumped to get this jacket, as I love the burton AK shells I've had in the past. I loved the blue zipper accent but when I got the jacket, it was completely black. Bummer! The fit was good and the jacket was soft for a shell.
