Burton wrote the book on various fits for outerwear. If denim has options like boot cut, skinny, ultra skinny, cigarette, straight leg, high waist, hip hugger and loose fit, why can’t our snowboarding outfits? Well, it doesn’t have to be as complex as choosing toothpaste. Burton broke their women’s fits down into four categories…
- Boyfriend Fit – Longer and straighter for a more progressive look, Boyfriend Fit is for the gal who isn’t afraid to express her personal style. The jackets flaunt slightly longer arms and bit more room in the chest, while the pants have some more wiggle room in the hips and a wider cuff. While the Boyfriend Fit is a relaxed look, every piece still has a feminine edge. Jackets with the Boyfriend Fit include the Cora Pullover , Foxx Down, GMP Elenor, Prism Gore-Tex, and Prowess.
- Signature Fit – With enough room to layer without being overly baggy, Burton’s Signature Fit is the tried-and-true silhouette that’s flattering on all body types. A slightly tailored waist gives that perfect girly edge. Sig Fit is the most popular fit, so Burton made more than a handful of head turning jackets to choose from – Dandridge Down, Delerium, GMP Revo, Logan, Method, Scarlet, Skylar Gore-Tex, Tonic, Tula and Varsity.
- AK Fit – Built for backcountry powder missions, hikes to a secret stash and the windiest lift ride imaginable, the AK Fit has plenty of room to wiggle and layer. Every piece is constructed with waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex material, so it’s imperative that the fit doesn’t hold the rider back. You’ll never feel the knees pulling or the pants gapping at the lower back. The jacket and pant will stay put so you won’t have to worry about adjusting your threads if you bail on kicker. Sold? Check the AK 2L Altitude Jacket.
- Slim Fit – Ahh yes. Slim Fit is for the fashion forward ladies who like to, um, show a little leg on the mountain. Well, not really, but Slim Fit does give you that leg hugging feeling of confidence. The jackets have a narrower chest and make for a very flattering jacket that flaunts the rider’s curves. Rest assured, every Slim Fit piece is still incredibly rider friendly built for mobility, comfort and warmth. This season, choose from the Jet Set, Penelope, Tabloid, TWC Broomsticks, TWC Fulltime Flirt, TWC Memphis or TWC Sugartown.
Boarding School – Outerwear Fit
Narrator – All fits in Burton outerwear are tailored specifically for the movements of riding. The fit options are based on personal choice and style.
Kimmy – Don’t you think it’s a little cliche to have a girl for this skit?
Narrator – What do you mean?
Kimmy – Guys are just as concerned with how their jacket and pants fit as girls are. I mean, look at this diagram. See, men actually have more fit options than women.
Narrator – That’s true.
Kimmy – And don’t even get me started on the Boyfriend Fit. What the?
Narrator – All Burton fits are designed for riding. And fit options are based on personal preference.
Kimmy – You already said that. Anyways, I guess I’m over reacting. The Boyfriend Fit is actually kind of nice.
Narrator – The Boyfriend Fit, like all fits by Burton, is pretty nice.
