Burton Radial Shell Jacket 2018 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton Radial Shell Jacket is new for 2018 and just removes the insulation from what used to be just called the Radial. This color of blue called Mountaineer is a different looking jacket than the pic on Burton’s site. It’s actually a color much similar to the Mountaineer you see on the AK Cyclic site and it’s a much more matte looking jacket. This is a great choice for anyone looking for really good waterproofing at a reasonable price and it’s one of the few Burton Gore-Tex Jackets with a contoured hood for a complete seal on the face.
