The Burton [ak] GORE-TEX® 3L Hover Jacket is a pro-strength yet lightweight and packable GORE-TEX® Pro Shell that’s streamlined down to the stitching. Fully GORE-SEAM® taping further seals out hammering storms and is fueled at the core by the Gore Micro Grid Backer to breathe like a fresh set of lungs when steaming up the bootpack. The balaclava-friendly Neck Gasket Collar and adjustable Powder Gasket Cuffs seal the perimeter from snow, cold, and wind, while a logical pocket array keeps essentials safely stowed for long days of sledding or splitboarding. Tested and respected by mountain professionals worldwide, no wonder this is the top choice for Terje Haakonsen.
Waterproofing: GORE‑TEX® Pro Shell [3‑Layer] with 40D Gore Micro Grid Backer
GORE-TEX® fabric is incredibly durable, waterproof, breathable, and totally windproof. A single square inch of this fabric contains 9 billion microscopic pores—each 20,000 times smaller than a raindrop, but 700 times larger than a molecule of water vapor. Water can’t pass through the fabric, yet perspiration escapes with ease. You’ll find this next level molecular construction on all GORE-TEX® fabrics.
BURTON-EXCLUSIVE GORE-TEX® FABRICS:
Pushing industry-leading waterproofing to new heights, we worked with GORE-TEX® to develop 100% Burton-exclusive colorways and prints for select 2018 outerwear. It takes a ton of testing, but we think you’ll agree that the elevated style of these Burton-exclusives is well worth it.

STORMFORM CONTOUR HOOD:
No two heads are alike, but the new design of the StormForm Hood masters the many elements of protection and fit precision. The contoured shape fits perfectly over helmets and integrates seamlessly with goggles, while still allowing space for neck gaiters and clavas. Enhanced biomechanics move rotationally without creating frontside or backside blind spots
POWDER GASKET CUFF:
This low-profile, secondary cuff hidden inside the sleeve features a double layer of water-repellent stretch fabric and an adjustable Velcro® closure to seal out the elements. Wear it under or over your glove’s cuff, cinched tight or loose for customized weather protection.
NECK GASKET COLLAR:
Block out winter’s worst by cinching the Neck Gasket Collar close to your face. The double-layer tricot provides a soft, comfortable feel along the neck while cinched tight, and the adjustable collar lets you fine-tune the fit around a facemask.
ERGO REMOVABLE WAIST GAITER with Jacket‑to‑Pant Interface:
Engineered for the movements of snowboarding, this ergonomic waist gaiter seals out snow and cold like never before, and is removable for customizing performance. The longer back creates an ergonomic fit, articulating with your body for an interface that stays locked in all day long.
The benchmark for expected outerwear fit with room to layer that's not too baggy.
