A Burton DryRide hang tag is a guaranteed seal of approval that your hoodie, fleece, outerwear, gloves or long underwear will keep you warm and dry. Wearing cotton while snowboarding is like wearing socks swimming. It’s just plain silly. Weekend warriors and backcountry mountain men all know that every piece of clothing should have a technical component in the fabric to keep your garments from becoming saturated. Whether it be sweat or snow, if your gear gets wet, you’re pretty much screwed out of a good time. Burton made it easy to pin point the technical clothing pieces in their expansive line by branding them with Dryride. Imagine a long sleeve polo that adds a layer of insulation and will never (ever!) become damp. Burton tacked it with the Rugby First Layer Shirt. How about a hoodie that won’t become a snow magnet as soon as you hit the lift? Done and done with the infamous Bonded Hoodie. And of course, Burton gloves, jackets and pants are all armed with Dryride making them the most tech choice for long days at the mountain.
Dryride is Burton’s fabrication technology used in outerwear, gloves, fleece, softshell, first layer and tech apparel. It represents a strict set of criteria that all materials must meet to be included in our line. Wear your gear with confidence knowing that materials carrying the Dryride name have been designed, developed and tested to ensure you stay drier, more comfortable and outside longer.
