Key Features of the Burton AK 2L Stagger Snowboard Pant:
Burton AK Stagger pants are great for all riders. The gore-tex pants are built to handle tough riding and provide great protection against the wind, snow and rain. The pants are very comfortable and are a great fit. I wear a size 33-pant and the medium fits perfectly. The pants can also zip into any burton jacket. I highly recommend
These are probably my favorite pair of pants out of the five that I own for the following reasons - completely waterproof Gore-Tex fabric, super soft and smooth against the skin, and really durable. I have the DPM camo print and it goes well with almost every jacket I have. Burton's AK line is amazing. Sure, it's expensive but you definitely get what you pay for and more. Plus, they're backed by a lifetime warranty
These have become my favourite out of all my snowpants. Very comfortable inner, durable outer, totally waterproof (even the zippers), optional vents work awesome, and they just look sick too! I got the Ignitor colourway. Don't get me wrong, I still love my Oakley and Special Blend pants... but maybe knowing these are Gore-Tex and the others aren't is affecting my psych. hahah
Burton [ak] Stagger Pants 2011 - Best bang for buck in burton ak
I picked these up last summer at a flagship store and after a season of usage, these are my go to pants for everyday riding. Warm when you need them to be, and cool on those warm spring days, these pants almost always stay at the perfect temperature. I would call these the best 'bang for buck' for ak outerwear (although still pretty expensive). Compared to the hover pants (about 100 dollars more expensive than the stagger), I feel these actually do the job better. Compared to the pro shell, the performance shell from gore-tex seems a bit more maneuverable and a bit more lightweight. It also seems to keep me warmer, although the pro-shell on the hover makes it as waterproof as you are going to get. Another thing I like about the stagger is the netted air vents. With the 2L products (with exception to the LZ Down Jacket) you get netted vents, whereas the 3L products, the vents are open. In addition, I believe these pants will be compatible with all ak jackets, as the zipper interface in the back matches up perfectly with each ak jacket I have used with it. Overall, these are my favorite pants and they get the job done in all weather conditions
I've got a three pairs of snow pants right now, but these are the only ones that ever get worn. Burton AK quality coupled with Gore-Tex protection pretty much means the ultimate snowboarding pant for me. You could step it up to the 3L GoreTex (on the Hover, for example) and gain a bit more durability/breathability, but these have an amazing venting system, and are incredibly comfortable. There's lots of pockets everywhere if you're a packrat-type, and the waist adjustments ensure a perfect fit for everyone. The zip-in system is worth its weight in gold, ensuring onesie-like protection without the drawback of looking like an oompa-loompa. I was fortunate to pick these pants up on clearance last year, but if I had to replace them, I'd definitely look for another pair. For sizing reference, I'm 5'11, 190 and usually wear a 34-35 waist, and have a lot of wiggle room both ways with the Large
These are my go to pants every season. The gore tex wears well and will keep you dry in all conditions year round. The do fit big so try them on first, definitely on the baggy side. I wonder if AK will start to slim down in the future. Lots of pockets and cool features.
Keeps you very dry in snowy conditions, I know because I chose to go riding while it snowing. Keeps you warm along with your base-layer and very comfortable to ride in. Not too tight so you stay relaxed throughout the day
