Some snowboard outerwear is happy to be just that, concentrating on function without worrying about style too much (at least, not in the way the average person on the street defines it). Usually it’s the high-tech, freeride-focused brands that can afford to do it this way, as their target audience expects nothing less.
“From the off, it’s clear that fashion is a big consideration here – check out the collar detail, for example – but function hasn’t taken a back seat”
Most snowboarders, however, are looking for something that will perform impeccably on a shred trip, but that’s equally acceptable for a stomp up the high street on a winter’s night at home. That’s where models like the Burton Dunmore snowboard jacket come in.
From the off, it’s clear that fashion is a big consideration here – check out the collar detail, for example – but function hasn’t taken a back seat. The specs are industry standard, and more than capable of keeping you warm and dry when getting after it on the mountain. This year all colourways now feature 10,000g breathability ratings, so whichever you go for will do a fine job of expelling sweat and keeping your skin from becoming clammy and uncomfortable.
