Burton AK FZ Insulator Jacket 2018 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton AK FZ Insulator is expensive and hard to swing cash-wise as a non-primary jacket but man is it light easily packable and it really regulates heat well.  I’m not sure if I’ve ever had a medium level puffy integrate with my body like this. With the price point of an average primary snowboard jacket I feel one part guilt but 2 parts joy when I have it on.  The one thing is it’s super tight.  Normally Burton jackets fit me in size L but I needed XL for this one and it still fit tight.
