I use this jacket for snowboarding at Mt. Baker in Washington and it's as waterproof as you can get. It is a lightweight jacket but doesn't keep warmth in as well as you want... you definitely need layers. It helps that the jacket runs a bit large so you are able to do that.

Pros: Goretex, lightweight/not warm (double edged sword), large collar and hood, flattering design

Cons: Air vents do not have mesh - fully open when zippers are down, NO WRIST GAITORS (come on, Burton)

Really nice looking jacket. I was looking for a solid jacket for snowboarding in Alaska where the weather can get downright nasty. It would have been perfect except the fit was just too big for me. I ordered a small, I'm 5'3 and 125 pounds and it hung down halfway to my knees. It was like a jacket dress.
If your taller I bet it would be a great bombproof jacket!

    This jacket fits really well in XS. I am 5'0" and 110lbs. I like that it is long enough to cover my bottom and the material is nice and soft and comfortable. Haven't had a chance to use it on the mountain yet but I anticipate it to perform well.

      I've used this jacket for a while now and it stands up to all conditions on the mountain. It's nice and light so you don't feel bogged down when you put layers underneath it. I have the blue plaid like pattern and it definitely looks better in person than in the picture!

        This is a great jacket. Runs a little small, especially when layering. Otherwise it has all the style and tech you need for a day on the slopes.

          Can't go wrong with the AK line! Durable and cuts through the cold like a heated plow. This jacket easily accommodates various layer options depending on the level of cold without the feeling of being overstuffed and motionless. If I had the money I would buy a second jacket in another color way. Thats how much I love this jacket!

            I picked out this jacket for my boyfriend to buy for me for Christmas. Best gift! We went to Mt. Baker yesterday and it kept me warm and dry while snowboarding. Even though it is really light weight I didn't need to wear a fleece under it - I stayed plenty warm and dry. My helmut fit under the hood, too. I loved the green color - it is kind of like an army green. I'm going to try and keep it strictly for the mountain, but it is cute enough to wear on a really stormy day here in Seattle to keep me dry. It has a bright pink lining which peeks out on the collar. I thought I might not like that but it actually matches the strap on my helmut so I'm happy.

                The Burton AK Gore-Tex jacket and pants are great for riding the mountain. I'm easy to spot in bright, but cute colors and patterns and I am toasty warm without the bulk!
