Any rider who recalls the leash law can appreciate the timeless tech and style of an anorak. This season we’ve fused that pullover flavor with the fully technical fabrics of the [ak] line in the men’s Burton [ak] GORE-TEX® 2L Velocity Anorak. GORE-TEX® 2L fabric fully sealed with GORE-SEAM® tape blocks moisture and breathes with ease, while the YKK® water-resistant zipper links throwback style with next-gen function. Critical details such as engineered articulation and a front kangaroo media pocket deliver modern convenience that ensures a piece two generations better than the original.
GORE‑TEX® Plain Weave Fabric [2‑Layer]:
GORE-TEX® fabric is incredibly durable, waterproof, breathable, and totally windproof. A single square inch of this fabric contains 9 billion microscopic pores—each 20,000 times smaller than a raindrop, but 700 times larger than a molecule of water vapor. Water can’t pass through the fabric, yet perspiration escapes with ease. You’ll find this next level molecular construction on all GORE-TEX® fabrics.
BURTON-EXCLUSIVE GORE-TEX® FABRICS:
Pushing industry-leading waterproofing to new heights, we worked with GORE-TEX® to develop 100% Burton-exclusive colorways and prints for select 2018 outerwear. It takes a ton of testing, but we think you’ll agree that the elevated style of these Burton-exclusives is well worth it.

Shell Mapped with Engineered Soft Taffeta and Closed Cell Mesh Lining
Taffeta offers a crisp, high-end feel that is often woven using a mix of synthetic fibers. Its unique hand feel and sheen make it ideal for printing and embossing, and like all Burton linings, it wicks and breathes easy to keep you dry from the inside out.
100% polyester mesh linings are key in a 2-layer jacket’s ability to breathe and wick away heat-robbing moisture. It also protects the coating or lamination to ensure top-level waterproofing and breathability season after season.
FULLY TAPED SEAMS WITH GORE-SEAM®:
GORE’s unique seam sealant tape seals each and every seam to provide a completely waterproof and liquid resistant fabric. Featured on select men’s and women’s Burton jackets and pants.
