Burton Vagabond Jacket 2019 - 2017 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton Vagabond Jacket offers up Gore-Tex, great construction, a lot of functional pockets, a longer length and a solid all-around fit for those that ride at resorts that often have wet weather.

Burton Vagabond Jacket Past Reviews

The Burton Vagabond Jacket is Gore-Tex which is great but it’s a bit on the tight side for riders with thicker builds like myself.  Burton usually has small hoods and while this isn’t large it’s bigger than most in their line and fit’s with a wider variety of helmets.
