Burton Poacher 2014 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton Poacher is one of those jackets that doesn’t titillate every day or avid snowboarder but it does a great job for those that are looking to get a good but inexpensive jacket that doesn’t look lame to get into the sport.  It’s also a good jacket for those on a budget that don’t see a lot of wet weather but either run a little cold or often see colder weather.

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.
