Burton AK Helium Insulator 2015 - 2013 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton AK Helium Insulator is a support jacket for those that like to layer up when it gets colder.  It’s very light and warm at the same time.  It regulates heat pretty well and makes for a good post ride layer.

Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews.  No one is perfect and we do make money from the “Where To Buy” links below, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.

Height: 5’10”,
