The Burton Gore-Tex Jeans Pant is definitely for those looking for a little more steeze than your average Gore-Tex Pant. It’s got a very casual look but still has a lot of tech. It looks soo much like Levi’s that it really fools your eye. It’s not for everyone but it’s a fun idea and a nice take on making things look different.
Size Tried: Medium
Weight: 195 lbs,
Upper Thigh 24.5”
Middle Thigh 22”
Turn On’s: Size M pants that fit well around my thighs, Riding with Friends, Open Roads, new gear and especially my wife.
Turn Off’s: M Pants that I can’t get up over my thighs, traffic and people who can’t park inside the lines.
Fit: The Mid fit with Burton can be different from pant to pant. For example the mid fit Burton Murdoc Pant is a little tighter in the thighs but they are both mid fit. I’d say this feels closer to the sig fit side of things with Burton where the Murdoc feels closer to the slim side of things.
Construction: This isn’t actually a denim material but a very light high tech fabric with Photoshop work done on it to make it look like denim. There is also a silky liner inside and this is nothing like the thicker/warmer Jeans like material that was used in the past.
Insulation/Warmth: Not much warmth here. It’s mainly a wind and water blocker.
Waterproofing: When it comes to waterproofing the material on the outside will do a great job repelling water but the best part is the Gore-Tex insert that has some pretty solid waterproofing and you can ride in rain with this.
Breathability: Feels pretty breathable but not super breathable.
Overall: All in all it’s a fun pant at a good price for 2 Layer Gore-Tex.
