Burton AK Gore-Tex Pro 3L Hover Pant 2021 - 2020 Review by The Good Ride
The 2021 Burton AK Gore-Tex Pro 3L Hover Pant is almost the same as the 2020 except the material on the outside feels more smooth. It makes it so wet snow and rain have a harder time clinging to your pants. The fit and the rest of the design is very similar so if you can find last years on sale go for it.
The Burton AK Gore-Tex Pro 3L Hover Pant is pretty much a perfect pant for my specs, how many days a year I ride and the conditions I ride in. It is so light, packable, breathable, windproof and waterproof that if you can swing the price higher than some snowboards it might be worth a go.
Weight 185 lbs
Upper Thigh 23.5”
Middle Thigh 21.5”
Fit: This is a semi-tight fit but the cut is so well articulated that the pant doesn’t feel as tight as it is. This and the AK Swash Pant are two of my favorite fitting pants I’ve tried.
Construction: Not a single noticeable flaw but that is what is expected in this price point. It does have a crunchy sound to it compared to Gore-Tex Stretch and standard Gore-Tex.
Insulation/Warmth: More to come on this but with Gore-Tex Pro (highest level Gore-Tex) it is very wind and water-resistant so it will make good insulation better underneath.
Waterproofing: Can’t really speak to it yet but will after a few wet days.
Breathability: Same as above.
Packability: Very thin and packable.
