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.

Size Tried: Large
Weight: 195 lbs
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.
