Product Info

For a few years now, Burton has been making the AK Guide collection for the Japanese market, with help from legendary backcountry guides Masanori Takeuchi and Hiroshi Fujiwara. Now they are releasing the line to the international community. The Burton AK 3L GORE-TEX Pro Japan Guide Jacket has a professional pedigree to help keep you dialed in the deepest powder and on the most hardcore expeditions. The GORE-TEX Pro fabric is world-class in terms of both waterproofing and breathability, and the jacket is designed for lightweight minimalism. With spots to stash your radio and easy access pockets for gear, the Guide Pro jacket is a purpose-driven shell that provides everything you need in a backcountry jacket and nothing else. Note: the AK Guide collection features a Japan inspired fit, and should be sized up one size for standard AK sizing.

Product Details

Face Fabric

70D GORE-TEX Pro Shell Fabric


GORE-TEX ProGORE-TEX Pro is GORE's ultimate three-layer breathable fabric. It's designed for maximum ruggedness and extreme use while providing the trusted weather protection of GORE-TEX with maximum breathability, durability, and temperature regulation on the skin track or boot pack.

Lining Material

New Micro Grid BackerNow developed with solution dyeing. The specially woven lining protects the membrane from abrasion on the inside, and slides easily over layers meaning you can move freely. The low denier backer is still highly breathable and robust, without adding excessive weight.


Regular FitWhat some might call a normal fit, regular-fitting garments are not too tight or too baggy, and can be worn over warmer mid-layer pieces with ease.
