In the coldest, wettest conditions, warmth and dryness are equally critical. That’s why the Burton Men’s [ak] Helitack Jacket is powered by a sustainably-superior bluesign® approved combo of mapped stretch insulation and Burton-exclusive GORE-TEX® 2L Fabric. The elemental result is ultimate warmth, waterproofing, and breathability even in the wettest conditions. The full package is backed by our LIFETIME WARRANTY and includes a full array of features, such as YKK® water-resistant zips, a removable snow-blocking waist gaiter and an internal dump pocket for on-hill supplies.
Waterproofing: GORE‑TEX® [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.

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
COHAESIVE™ HEM CINCH:
Weather the storm without sacrificing warmth with the Cohaesive™ Hem Cinch. A revolution in cord management, this bomber and ultra-streamline system integrates pull-cord hardware directly to the outerwear fabric, making hem adjustment simple and precise— even with gloves or mittens on.
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.
