Burton AK Rotor Soft Shell 2013 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton AK Rotor Soft Shell is an interesting jacket.  It’s a wind breaker that is almost not a snowboard jacket.  That being said it was a nice jacket to wear when it gets windy. It has some waterproofing but it’s not going to stand up to the kind of moisture you would expect with a jacket from the AK line.  It’s got that minimal design thing and it fits a little small.

Size Tried: Large
James’ Specs:
Height: 5’10”,
Weight: 195 lbs,

Turn Off’s: Size L Jackets that don’t fit well around my chest, super tight Size M Pants that I can’t get up over my thighs, traffic and people who can’t park inside the lines.
