Burton AK Gore‑Tex Summit 2020 - 2014 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton AK Gore‑Tex Summit pant is a very technical 2 Layer Gore-Tex shell with very light, stretchy and thin fabric that makes for an excellent backcountry pant right up there with many of the highest end ski pants. This is for those that want the best and lightest. It’s got enough room to layer up with out looking like a guys pant. It’s made to protect you from wind and wet weather but not keep you warm.

Burton AK Gore‑Tex Summit Past Reviews

2019

The Burton Women’s AK Gore-Tex Summit Pants have great waterproofing and breathability with a 2L Gore-Tex construction as well as taped seams. These pants are good for any weather conditions and have a nice relaxed fit for them. They seem to have more room in the hips than some other models, and have plenty of room to layer. Would be good for hiking, storm riding, spring shredding, and custom layering.

The Burton AK 2L Summit Pant is a very technical 2 Layer Gore-Tex shell with very light, stretchy and thin fabric that makes for an excellent backcountry pant right up there with many of the highest end ski pants. This is for those that want the best and lightest.  Are one issue is it doesn’t have front pockets next to the zipper. Mary and Heather were kind of bummed about that but at least it has pockets above the knees and a back pocket.  It’s got enough room to layer up with out looking like a guys pant. You will want to layer because this is a shell with a thin lining.  It’s made to protect you from wind and wet weather but not keep you warm.  If you hike a lot or spend most of your time in the backcountry this is a great pant for you.
