If you're the type of rider to hunt for deep powder whether you're riding the resort or deep in the backcountry, you need gear that can keep you warm and dry but still lets you work hard. For this season, Burton is introducing a new pant to the [AK] line; the Japan Guide Gore-Tex Hi-Top Pant which is designed for ultimate ruggedness and waterproofing while hunting for deep powder stashes. The three-layer shell construction features a Gore-Tex laminate for unbeatable weather protection as you hike, slash, and jump your way through waist-deep snow. Burton designed this pant with backcountry riding as the priority, so a breathable laminate paired with integrated inner thigh vents help shed excess heat and moisture as you push your way up to the summit of your next epic line. High bib coverage acts as an additional layer when hiking without your jacket, and provides added coverage to keep you dry during the descent, even during the occasional deep-powder tumble.
