Product Info

If you're serious about snowboarding then you'll need a serious jacket to go along with it. The Burton AK 2L Cyclic Jacket uses advanced GORE-TEX® fabric for the ultimate waterproof and breathable jacket making it a superb shell for riders who expend maximum effort to be the first ones on the chairlift. Stash anything from goggles to snack in the dual-purpose pocket, there's even an exterior access under the Stormflap™ so you can access the pocket without ever unzipping the entire jacket.

Product Details

Membrane

GORE-TEX® FabricThe GORE-TEX® diamond represents a commitment to riding in any weather. To satisfy these riders, Burton styles have been enhanced with GORE-TEX® fabric for the ultimate in GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY® performance. Add Burton's rider science and you get the ultimate in waterproof, breathable, windproof protection.

Lining Material

Taffeta LiningTaffeta offers a crisp, high-end feel that is often woven using a mix of silk and synthetic fibers. Its unique hand feel and sheen make it ideal for printing and embossing, and like all Burton linings, it wicks and breathes easy to keep you dry from the inside out.

Closed Cell Mesh Lining100% Polyester mesh linings are key in a 2L jacket's ability to breathe and wick away heat-robbing moisture. It also protects the coating or lamination to ensure top-level waterproofing and breathability season after season.

Fit

    Comments about Burton AK 2L Cyclic Jacket:

    Great jacket, really like the fit but just be aware you'll probably need to go down a size. I'm 6ft 4" and 195lbs and ended up with a medium which is a really good fit (more on the fitted side, vs baggy).

        I bought this jacket specifically for snowboarding and it feels roomy enough to provide comfort while heading down the hill. I originally bought a size large because that is the size I wear for most other clothing companies, but the size large fit like and XL so I returned for the Medium, which fits great. I would recommend buying one size down.

          I've been a lifelong ak fan. The quality and features are among the best in the industry. This is the 4th ak I have added to my stash, though I still use the other three jackets regularly.

          The size is perfect, the L is roomy enough for a 6', 210 lb guy to add layers if desired. Sleeves and bottom are slightly longer, which is perfect for keeping the elements out when riding. Snag this jacket while you can, you won't be disappointed.

            This jacket is exactly what I was looking for. I have the 2012 version in a different size, and changing sizes 100% addressed my needs. I'm 5'9", 150 lbs and a thin but athletic build and this fits great and looks good too! The subdued AK graphics don't make you look like a billboard, and the cut is totally functional but stylish at the same time. The jacket is great in a variety of conditions, breathable when it's balmy and a fortress when it's snowing sideways and gusting over 30 mph. My only two nitpicks are that this jacket (compared to the '12) doesn't have mesh lining in the pit zips and the hood doesn't fit over a helmet. Overall? Eat PB&J and ramen for a month if you have to and get yourself one of these!

              Awesome jacket! Used in the cascades in wet snow and in the rockies in dry snow and loved it. Dry and warm and super comfortable with just a base layer. Don't forget to zip the pits!
