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.
GORE-SEAM® Tape - This unique tape, backed by reliable Gore equipment and know-how, ensures that every seam and tiny stitch hole is sealed.
YKK® Water Resistant Zippers - YKK® matte water-resistant zippers for smoother performance and better drape, a cleaner finish, and overall higher strength.
Fulltime Contour™ Hood - Designed and built for standing sideways, throw this ergonomic hood up and still be able to see where you're riding. The dimensions and shape allow for the hood to be worn over your helmet, giving you total protection from the elements without sacrificing comfort or visibility.
Living Lining™ - Thermo-Regulating Technology works within a three-layer system, reacting to your body heat for regulated comfort.
Magic Stitch Removable Waist Gaiter - The powder skirt can be permanently removed by simply undoing one stitch.
Lifetime Warranty - Burton Snowboards warrants all Clothing, Outerwear, Bags, and Luggage sold by Burton to be free of defects in materials or workmanship for the practical lifetime of the product. Damage due to misuse, abuse, accidents, neglect, and wear and tear that can be reasonably expected as a result of extended use over time, are not covered by this Limited Lifetime Warranty but may be repaired at a reasonable cost.
Chafe Free Collar - Extra soft tricot liner to protect your face.
2-Way Front Zipper - Two pulls allow the opening to be closed or opened in two opposite directions at the same time. Unzipping the bottom zipper a bit allows for a wider range of movement and offers easy access to internal pockets.
Jacket to Pant Interface - Connect your jacket to your pants for better protection from the elements.
bluesign® Approved - bluesign® offers the highest level of consumer safety employing methods and materials in their manufacture that conserve resources and minimize impacts on people and environment.
