Burton Hellbrook 2018 - 2013 Review by The Good Ride

The Burton Hellbrook Pant is not amazing when it comes to waterproofing and breathability but its got a ton of pockets, excellent venting and can work for a lot of riders. Also the double button makes it a great pant to keep on without a belt. It’s got a fit very similar to the Burton AK Swash and Burton knows how to build a good pant around most riders bodies.

Turn On’s: Size M pants that fit well around my thighs, Riding with Friends, Open Roads, new gear and especially my wife.
Turn Off’s: M Pants that I can’t get up over my thighs, traffic and people who can’t park inside the lines.

Fit: Mid fit means somewhat tight fit.  This use to be considered tight but now their are skin tight so we call this semi-tight. Not much room in here for layering and feels pretty tight around the pockets.

Construction: Well made and should last a long time.  I’ve owned a ton of burton pants and none have ever failed on me.

Insulation/Warmth: Just a pant with some decent fabric so it’s not a warmth provider but not an ultra techy shell either.

Waterproofing: 15k Burton waterproofing does a pretty good job.  It’s no Gore-Tex pant but it’s good waterproofing for the price point.

Breathability: Missing a bit of breathability for those that heat up quickly. If you run hot like me you could get a little sauna crotch going.

Overall: It’s a great pant and works very well for the kind of rider that doesn’t spend a lot of time on their butt yet also needs a little extra waterproofing from time to time.
