Do you like the best of the best? Do you like your purchase to deliver year after year? Look no further. Burton’s AK outerwear line is all that and more. Every piece is constructed with Gore-Tex®, the legendary fabric that’s guaranteed to keep you warm and dry. Before we dive in any deeper, let’s start with the acronym, ‘AK.’ What the heck is that? ALASKA, of course! Perhaps the best, untouched snowboarding is found way up north. Think thousands of acres of mountainous terrain with fluffy, white, perfect snow. You’ll need a sled, cat or heli to get to the goods. Lifts don’t exist in these parts. You’ll also need some solid snowboarding experience, a guide, beacon, avalanche safety equipment, some lungs and some kick a** snowboarding outerwear. If Burton’s AK outerwear line is tough enough for Alaska, it’s certainly lives up to being best in class.
Burton has devoted a ton of R & D to their AK line. It’s basically a test laboratory for new technologies that will eventually trickle down to the regular Burton line. Riders like Terije Haakonsen, Jussi Oksanen and John Jackson ride AK for comfort, style and the ultimate protection against the elements. Whether hiking the pipe or dipping out of bounds for freshies, you can be certain that AK outerwear will keep you warm and dry while allowing the garment to breath. Say good bye to sweaty and clammy days ripping some pow. Seriously, AK Gore-Tex really is all that. The most popular jackets for 2013 include the 2L Cyclic Jacket, 2L Stagger Jacket, 2L LZ Down Jacket, 3L Freebird Jacket and 3L Hover Jacket. For pants, dip into the 2L Stagger Pant, 2L Cyclic Pant or 3L Freebird Bib Pant. Whatever you choose, we promise you won’t be disappointed. AK is worth every penny.
We incorporate Gore-Tex® fabric into the entire AK outerwear line for riders seeking the ultimate in comfort and durable waterproof, breathable protection. Gore-tex® is so confident in their gear that they back every product with their guaranteed to keep you dry promise.
