Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $150


Excellent fit, fabric is very functional and looks nice too. A nice technical piece that transitions well from office to trail. Nice touches like soft fleece near the chin and on the shoulders, nice workmanship, extremely well made.


  • Attention to little details
  • Excellent fit
  • Lining slips over any layer


  • Prana purchased the company and then killed the brand. Really tragic, they made nice stuff.
  • No longer available unless you are lucky enough to come across old stock.
  • Fit of hood is a little awkward.

Fits well, even those with ample chests. Comfortable to move in.

Drawstring cord at bottom to seal out drafts, cuffs are not adjustable, but the function fine as is.

Very water-resistant fabric that has a nice texture and soft hand. 

Not the most breathable, no pit vents but the concealed vent on the back yoke does a great job.

Lining works well with and layer underneath. 

Seems to be quite durable.

Pockets function well and are of nice size and placement. 

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

When foul weather hits, keep dry in Scapegoat's Burnside Jacket, aptly named for a dry spot beneath a bridge. Whether biking or hiking, keep dry in the Bone Dry Barrier membrane under the tough polyester shell that's treated with a durable water repellent (DWR) finish that makes water roll right off while you stay comfy beneath strategically placed welded microfleece comfort and warmth panels.

- Mountain Gear refers to the men's version

The Burnside Jacket by Scapegoat Outwear is a fully waterproof jacket made with an innovative japanese waterproof/breathable membrane called Bone-Dry Barrier. The Burnside is fully seam sealed and for extra protection has a weatherproof center front zipper for those windy rain days. On the inside of the jacket you get a warm, comfy micro polar fleece that has a brushed face and anti-pill finish with welded body contact point for incredible durability. A fully technical jacket but so good looking it can actually be worn out and about to nice dinners, fancy operas or just the local holiday party. Scapegoat is a company that has partnered with prAna - one of the most successful climbing/yoga clothing companies in the industry. With this sort of background in making clothing, Scapegoat stepped it up a notch with full outdoor apparel that has awesome style, not just great technical function.

- RockCreek refers to the men's version

Scapegoat gave the Mens Burnside Jacket a soft microfleece lining to add an extra touch of warmth and comfort, so you can concentrate on riding and not worry about anything else. If a big storm rolls in, youll be stoked on the fresh snow and wont have stress over getting wet thanks to the Burnside Jackets waterproof breathable Bone-Dry Barrier. Scapegoat also had the foresight to add an easily accessible internal media pocket, so you can get to your iPod and always have the right track playing. After all, you dont want to drop into the terrain park and have your tunes switch to Enya.
