Why we chose the Burton Men’s AK Japan Gore-Tex PRO Guide Jacket and AK Japan Gore-Tex PRO Guide Bib Snowboard Outerwear: Outerwear specifically designed for Japow – the first step to actually purchasing that ticket to Hokkaido.
Burton’s AK line offers the brands most premium outerwear and has been Burton’s team riders first choice for over two decades. Originating in Alaska, where the product was first developed and tested, the AK line is built to withstand the harshest of climates while providing both solid performance and style.
With the help of two legendary backcountry guides, Masanori Takeuchi and Hiroshi Fujiwara, Burton expanded the AK line for the Japanese market releasing a collection including the 3L AK Japan Gore-Tex Pro Guide Jacket and AK Japan Gore-Tex Pro Guide Bib pants. Based on their success overseas, Burton decided to release the line to the international market last season thus making it one of the most technical outerwear in their entire collection.
“When it comes to durable outerwear, Gore-Tex Pro has earned its spot as the industry leader”
