Details

As one of the smartest jackets in snowboarding, the Burton [ak] 2L GORE-TEX® Swash Jacket’s PrimaLoft® insulation is like a built-in vest, focusing warmth around your core while leaving your arms light and free to move about. High-tech in every respect, the Swash is fully sealed against wind and water with the added reinforcement of GORE-SEAM® tape, and is equipped with a lightweight lining for ramped-up wicking and breathability. Additional features like adjustable Powder Gasket Cuffs, a water-repellent waist gaiter, and YKK® water-resistant zippers make this the one to wear when the weather get rugged. Fully backed by a LIFETIME WARRANTY.

 

Waterproofing: 

GORE‑TEX® Plain Weave Fabric [2‑Layer]:

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.

WHAT MAKES GORE-TEX® FABRIC SO DOPE?

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.

 

Warmth: Engineered with PrimaLoft® Silver Insulation [60G Front and Back Body] and Mapped with Engineered Soft Taffeta and 20D Lightweight, Down‑Proof Lining

PRIMALOFT® FABRIC:

 [60G Front and Back Body]: This soft and lightweight performance fabric wicks moisture and dries at an accelerated rate to keep you looking good and feeling fresh no matter what the day throws at you.

TAFFETA LINING: 

Taffeta offers a crisp, high-end feel that is often woven using a mix of synthetic fibers. Its unique hand feel and sheen make it ideal for printing and embossing, and like all Burton linings, it wicks and breathes easy to keep you dry from the inside out.

 

Features:

Bluesign® Approved Product:

As riders, we’re all invested in ensuring healthy winters and snowfall for years to come. As a brand, that means getting a grip on how our products affect the world we play in. The bluesign® system unites the entire supply chain to reduce impact on both humans and the planet. bluesign® approved materials are guaranteed to use only safe chemicals and are manufactured to meet the highest standards of natural resource conservation, consumer and worker health, and clean air and water discharge during the manufacturing process. With approximately 84% of Burton’s 2018 performance outerwear line featuring bluesign® approved materials, we are committed to doing our part.

FULLY TAPED SEAMS WITH GORE-SEAM®: 

GORE’s unique seam sealant tape seals each and every seam to provide a completely waterproof and liquid resistant fabric. Featured on select men’s and women’s Burton jackets and pants.

YKK® Matte Water‑Resistant Zippers: 

The entire [ak] outerwear line features custom-branded YKK® matte water-resistant zippers for smoother performance, better drape, a cleaner finish, increased strength, and superior protection from the elements.

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. 

REGULAR FIT:

The benchmark for expected outerwear fit with room to layer that's not too baggy.

 

LIFETIME WARRANTY:

The LIFETIME WARRANTY on this Burton jacket means it’s good to go, season after season. Our W48 Warranty Program ensures that should you have a problem, we'll have your claim repaired or replaced and on its way back to you within two business days of receiving it.
