Burton Particle 2016 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton Particle 3L Gore-Tex Jacket is new this year and offers an alternative to the articulating hood Burton 3 Layer jackets like the Hover and Freebird.  It also has a rather unique venting system. It’s a very good thin and light 3-Layer Gore-Tex Jacket for in and out of the resort.
