Intended Purpose: The Burton AK 2L Cyclic Jacket delivers a lightweight shell with Gore-Tex to stay protected from the elements. Designed for snowboarders and freeride skiers, the jacket is suitable for 365 days outdoor.
Fit: The 2L Cyclic Jacket is designed to mimic the body’s natural movements so it’s not as loose fitting as other models in the Burton line. I found the fit fine if I didn’t need any layering underneath but on the tight side if I did layer up on the colder days. I probably should have sized up for my more loose baggy comfort that I like.
Appearance: I received the AK Cyclic jacket in the smurf colorway which is a mix of black, blue and grey in one jacket. It was a popular colorway since it was very neutral colors but also not too boring on the mountain. I still like the brighter designs that Burton puts out.
Price in USA is around 340/360$
Price in Europe is around 350 euro
FeaturesThe 2L Cyclic Jacket featuresa two layer Gore-Tex performance shell and Gore-Seam that’s guaranteed to keep you dry.
The waterproofing rating is 28k and breathability is 20k. The jacket features pit zips, jacket to pant interface, fully taped seams, removable waist gaiter, Riri Aquazip water-resistant zippers, fixed hood, taffeta and mesh inner lining, 2 microfleece-lined handwarmer pockets, 1 chest pocket and 1 pass pocket.
In terms of design, it’s a simple jacket that’s lightweight and built for the outdoors range of temperatures (especially wet, heavier snow). Probably the only thing I didn’t like is the zippers, they could easily come up from the bottom of the jacket.
