Burton [ak] 3L Freebird Jacket - Men's



Show Description

When your quest for fresh lines takes you from sidecountry excursions to backcountry tours, a bomber jacket is essential. Robust 3-layer construction combines outstanding waterproof-breathability with an incredibly breathable back panel. Burly yet insanely packable, this piece of winter armour features essential backcountry details like waterproof pockets for skins, a stand up collar and a powder skirt. The articulated fit won't get in the way during high-intensity tours or runs, and is loose enough for a traditional layering setup.

  • Fully taped seams with GORE-TEX tape keeps water from soaking through.
  • Adjustable hood with embedded cord adjustments seals out frigid winds and icy elements.
  • Stand-up collar features fleecy chin guard.

  • Zippered chest pockets are large enough to accommodate splitboard skins.
