Powder ninja approved.
The way of the snow ninja can often be a cold one, but when conditions are deep and you're likely to be harvesting face shot after face shot, the Burton Women's AK Power Stretch Hooded Top is your go-to option for keeping your core dry and warm. The Power Stretch fabric blend compliments your movements, so the hoodie will resist bunching, and the Lycra thumbholes layer well under your gloves or mittens, so you won't have to deal with pow getting all up in your kit. Plus, the extra-long silhouette keeps your upper bottom covered when your strapping in so wind, snow, and chill won't lash your exposed skin.

- Q & A
Good baselayer option
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
I ended up returning these because I didn't like the hood. It ended up being pretty bulky with my ski jacket. But I did like the material and stretch of it!
Bought for base, wear it anywhere
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Size Bought: M
- Height: 5'5"
- Weight: 135lbs
I originally bought this to use as a snowboarding base layer (for touring), and since winter in Utah has been delayed this year I find myself using it for everything else! So far, I've worn it running, biking, traveling and even as PJ's :). The material is comfortable enough to sleep in, and elevated enough that you can still look dialed around town. From a performance perspective, I've enjoyed the stretch in the fabric and wicking while on runs. Can't wait to get this out into the backcountry - I know it'll be a staple and I'm glad I bought it. I bought a women's medium, and it fits me with room to move. If you're on the cusp of any sizes, for example, S/M or M/L, I would recommend sizing down.
