Burton AK 2L Stagger Gore-Tex® Performance Shell Jacket - Waterproof, Insulated (For Men)
Closeouts. When the pow is so deep you're sure you'll need a snorkel, reach for Burton's AK 2L Stagger Gore-Tex® Performance Shell jacket for complete waterproof breathable protection from the fluffy stuff. Lightweight insulation works with your body to provide the perfect amount of warmth.
Reviewed by ILYA from COLORADO on Sunday, April 7, 2013I like this Jacket, the quality of material seems good. The design of the front pockets keeps the jacket from budging when leaning forward. Inside Lightweight insulation is just enough to make the jacket not bulky. The things which burton needs to look at are: Internal stretchy cuffs with thumbhole are not vet stretchy. They work great without gloves, but because they not very stretchy it’s hard to put them over the thumb when gloves are on. Another thing the space inside the jacket’s collar is tight when included neck warmer stored inside collar pocket. However, when the neck warmer is out of collar pocket there is some space available.
Reviewed by Snowboarder from MN on Monday, April 1, 2013Color is more Wasabi then photo. Photo appears pastel Green. Will be perfect for boarding in next winter. I will plan on wearing a sweatshirt under this to stay warm on the cold days.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by IceCoastBoarder from Maryland on Friday, February 8, 2013Overall, love this jacket. This is my 2nd Burton AK Gore-Tex jacket and the quality is right on par w/coats in a higher price range. I would have given it 5 stars , but was disappointed that they did away with the RiRi zippers that were used in the past. The RiRi zippers are oversized, easy to manipulate w/gloves on and bombproof. Also, the neck area seems to be slightly smaller on the new version, which could be an issue if using bulky layers beneath. The material that Burton used for the jacket is much thicker (and more durable) than the previous versions, but is a little stiff. This may just be b/c I haven't broken it in fully. Hood is helmet compatible and has a built in/stowable anti-powder neck, face-mask for cold/snowy days. Good stuff as usual Burton AK.
