Burton AK Rotor Soft Shell 2013 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton AK Rotor Soft Shell is an interesting jacket.  It’s a windbreaker 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.

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.
