When you're working backcountry lines faster than a toddler can say the word "banana," make sure you reach for the Burton Men's AK Velocity Anorak Gore-Tex 2L Jacket to provide relentless backcountry-worthy protection. It's equipped with a minimalist design and a lightweight, yet high-performance Gore-Tex fabric to keep weight and bulk to a minimum--meaning you're able to move faster and more efficiently, without sacrificing weather protection. The Gore-Tex two-layer fabric shrugs off heavy snow and soggy slush with ease, yet is also highly breathable to keep you from getting soaked with heat-robbing sweat when you're skinning or bootpacking to the top of your line. The engineered lining features closed cell mesh in key areas where you need the most breathability. Additionally, the AK fit is articulated to allow comfortable, natural movement whether you're on the way up or ride down. Deploy the Magic Stitch powder skirt when the powder is waist-deep, or leave it behind when you want to shed a couple extra precious ounces. The side zipper makes it easy to get in and out of, and a kangaroo pocket with a headphone port lets you keep the tunes blaring while you search for pow stashes.
