User Review: Burton AK Continuum Fuse Jacket (2002)
Fabric: Goretex XCR 3L
Price Paid: $450
Sick, sick, jacket. No seams, no bulky storm flaps. Minimalism to the max, one pocket two vents. Plus armit vents which are huge and essentially make it a tee feel? The vent work wonderfully, unzip and its as if ytoure not wearing it, zip up and its warm. This thing is light! It feels better than a windbreaker. Great hood, good collar. I took this badboy to Verbier (Switzerland) this year, performed flawlessly. Some days I was in knee deep powder doing backcountry descents, other days I used it as a blanket to tan, and hustle up and down makeshift kickers. This thing is bullet proof! SUCH DETAIL. every zipper is waterproof, every edge is taped, every zipper is freeze proof and sewn in inside out to seal, craftsmaship. Never sweaty on the inside, I had an old helly hansen jacket and it used to make a puddle when i hung it up for lunch. I wear a Burton AK base layer shirt under it for regular days, add fleece for colder. If you can peddle off your kidney on the black market, get one!
