Burton AK Turbine Fleece 2015 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton AK Turbine Fleece is a nice alternative to the standard fleece option you have out there.  It’s a great tight fitting mid layer that works well with almost any Jacket. I’m a big fan of fleece jackets that have a smooth outer part that is still breathable like this jacket.

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.

Size Tried: Large
James’ Specs:
Height: 5’10”
Weight: 195 lbs
Chest: 44”
Neck: 16″
Torso Length (collar bone to pant line) 23”
Shoulder Width (widest point of shoulders) 22”
Arm Length (pit to wrist) 19.5”

Helmet: Smith Vantage

Goggles: Smith IO7
Turn On’s: Size L Jackets that fit well around my chest, size M pants that fit well around my thighs so I can get in and out of my pockets, open roads, Surfy Powder Turns, Riding with Friends, new gear and especially my super-hot super smart super funny wife.
Turn Off’s: Size L Jackets that don’t fit well around my chest, super tight Size M Pants that I can’t get up over my thighs, traffic and people who can’t park inside the lines.

One thing to mention is it’s not much of a wind blocker but a very breathable mid layer. It’s great to be used with a shell for an outer layer.  It’s not really the kind of jacket you want to take out on a dry windy day unless you plan on very vigorous exercise.
