If you are looking for personality, the Burton Ak Summit 2L Snowboard Jacket is up your boarding alley. This jacket is loose, snug and warm at the same time. It was made specifically for laid back people. This coat offers two layers of insulated fabric, which repels water and keeps in heat. Though this coat looks lighter than most Burton Wear coats, it offers all of the same protection, including carefully hemmed seams. The Burton Ak Summit 2L Snowboard jacket comes in all sizes, so women boarders of all kinds can enjoy.
AK Summit 2L Gore-Tex
AK products are the way to go for any condition. Once you own Gore-tex jackets or pants you can never go back to the traditional! It is light weight, stays dry, and after a day in the snow the jacket is touch dry by the time you get to the parking lot!
You can't go wrong with AK. Definately recommend it to my friends! The only con is not having enough pockets. But thats the style of AK.
If you want something baggy, you will need to go up one size

I washed it first, but still feels a bit stiff. But, it was extremely hot on the montain. After one run I took it off. Offers great weather protection.
If you want to stay dry, grab this jacket. It's a steal at $105. 2L Gore-Tex keeps you dry, and the 2L fabric is not as crunchy as the 3L. It's a thin, lightweight coat (no insulation), so be prepared to wear thermal layers to stay warm on the cold days. There is an option to widen the neck (that's the extra zipper up top), if you want to air things out a bit without opening your coat. There are also underarm vents. The arm vents do not have a mesh liner. There are 2 regular hand pockets on the outside and 2 weird small ones on the inside. There is a clear vinyl one (like for your pass or ID) and then another small one with a goggle wipe on a little leash. If you like having lots of pockets, this is not the jacket for you. I carry a pack to stash things, so I'm okay with the few pockets. I like being dry and prefer Gore-Tex over no-name waterproof fabrics. It may not be the most stylish jacket, but it will keep you DRY.
If I could, I'd give it 4.5 stars. This is a great all-around jacket - I love the fit, the look, the movement it provides, and the durability. However, I am surprised that nobody has mentioned the weirdly uncomfortable underarm vents, which have a double zipper (but the front doesn't?!?) and no mesh. Definitely a feeling you have to get used to. The zipper is so bulky that you feel like you should be walking around like a gun-slinger in the Old West. It's got 2 side pockets outside and one inner pocket between the belly button and hip, which seems like a strange place for a pocket. However, it's a cool jacket and a keeper.
A top of the line jacket! The AK Summit jacket can pretty much do it all when it comes to protection and sophistication in a snow jacket. It comes with Gore-tex which is the best of the best in waterproofing and breathability and is still lightweight enough to allow you to layer up and keep really warm. Its super mobile and leaves you with no restrictions on movement and comfort. I love the feel of it since sometimes Gore-tex can be too rough and stiff, but it has a great fit and is long enough to keep out the snow even in the deep powder.
The 2009 Black Denim jacket's material is super stiff. The vents at the armpits are very uncomfortable and there's no mesh. Overall the fit is pretty baggy. I also tried the ivory one. That one is much softer, although I thought that color was pretty boring.
