The finest piece of snowboarding equipment out there. It's not the common Gore-Tex (tm) material that you find in most high-tech winter gear, but a special patented material by Burton Snowboards called Tri-Lite AK (tm). The AK stands for Alaska where they tested the jacket. It has many fetures that include things such as a full-time contour hood, multiple venting options, game pocket, chest pocket, articulated elbows, waist gaiter, goggle pocket, pass pocket, and zip-in liners for extra warmth. Burton makes two zip-in insulators. The Insulator Jacket and the Insulator Vest. I.J.-$119.95 I.V.- $94.95. A great jacket with great features. You can go swimming in the thing and not get wet.
