New for this season, Burton introduces their ridiculously comfortable looking and warm AK Baker Expedition Down Jacket. This is exactly what you’d want to put on when venturing out into a blizzard or alternatively waking up to face a temperature that’s dropped below minus 10 degrees Celsius.
If you’re bound to face cold temperatures on your next trip, say you’re heading to the Pacific North West or up to Scandiland, then this thing should definitely be at the top of your Christmas / birthday list. Filled with 100% responsibly sourced down, the AK Baker Expedition Down Jacket equals warmth.

The 90/10 fill down-feather ratio is basically as good as it gets. This means that the jacket does a good job trapping heat. A fill power that reaches an impressively high 800 (anything over 700 is a lot) will also guarantee that you won’t go cold wearing this.
By adding the Ultralight Pertexshell and lining, the jacket can be compressed to an impressively small size despite its puffy looks. As a rule of thumb, an 800-fill-power down jacket with a thin shell can be compressed down to the size of a grapefruit. However, doing this for a more extended period of time can damage the feathers, so we wouldn’t recommend you go too crazy with the compressing.
As for the features, the big zippered pocket on the left chest is ideal for storing your phone in. The heat of the jacket will keep the phone warm too, preventing it from dying as quickly as it tends to do when the temperatures drop.
On top of using responsibly sourced down, the Burton AK Baker Expedition Jacket is also bluesign approved, meaning you won’t be investing your money in something that’s been manufactured in a way that neglected the well-being of people and the environment.
