Burton Hellbrook Premium 2013 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton Hellbrook Premium Pant is a well made well built pant that offers a good amount of protection.  It’s a slimmer version of the 2L Gore-Tex Highland Pant and it doesn’t have Gore-Tex.

Size Tried: Medium
James’ Specs:
Height: 5’10”,
Weight: 195 lbs,
Waist 33”
Hips 42”
Inseam 30”
Upper Thigh 24.5”
Middle Thigh 22”
Calves 17”
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: It’s a bit on the snug side and tight around my thighs.  There isn’t much room to get my keys in and out.  For most this would not be considered a mid fit but instead semi-tight.

Construction: It’s built like many high end pants that have Gore-Tex. You don’t usually have to worry about Burton when it comes to construction.

Insulation/Warmth: Pretty much a normal pant that isn’t cold like a thin technical shell but you can’t solely depend on this for warmth.

Waterproofing: 15k is pretty decent with Burton but it’s still a good bit behind their higher end pants. It will work if you see wet snow on ocassion.

Breathability: 10k aint much to write home about but it will breathe if you don’t overheat quickly.

Overall:  If this fits ya its a great pant that can offer a good bit of protection from the elements and like the Highland Pant it offers more warmth than a regular pant.
