Tough as nails and fully-taped, the Burton AK Gore-Tex 2L Swash Pants feature the bomber waterproofing and breathability of GORE-TEX 2L fabric. Built for those who operate at a higher level than most, it also features a performance-oriented articulated fit and maximum venting for maximum cooling off.
GORE-TEX® - 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.
Fully Taped - Having outerwear with fully taped seams means that on the inside of the jacket all the seams are covered in tape to provide the most effective waterproofing. It can be considered a key feature if you live in a wet climate or are planning on wearing the jacket during heavy rains. The downside is that due to the full taping there is less breathability than you'd experience with critically taped seams.
bluesign® Approved Fabric - bluesign® approved fabrics are guaranteed to use only safe chemicals and are manufactured to meet the highest standards of natural resource conservation, consumer and worker safety, and clean air and water discharge during the manufacturing process.
Cuff Elevators - Keeps your cuffs scuff-free. Cuffs reinforced with durable fabric and contoured shaping for increased abrasion resistance.
GORE-SEAM® Tape - This unique tape, backed by reliable Gore equipment and know-how, ensures that every seam and tiny stitch hole is sealed.
