Burton Poacher Insulated 2014 Review by The Good Ride
The Burton Poacher Insulated Pant is there for those that don’t need a lot of weatherproofing or breathability and just want a little warmth.
Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews. No one is perfect and we do make money from the “Where To Buy” links below, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.
Size Tried: Medium
Weight: 195 lbs,
Upper Thigh 24.5”
Middle Thigh 22”
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: Decent fit for my body type and I like most Sig Fit pants.
Construction: Well made for its the price point.
Insulation/Warmth: It’s hard to find Men’s pants with insulation in them. Usually, you are just lucky to find fleece liners in some or all of the pant. So when you see a pant with 40g insulation at this price it’s not bad.
Waterproofing: 10k 2 Layer insulation isn’t anything to write home about these days but it does keep some water out and as long as you keep them maintained and re-waterproof here and there then you have a pretty warm functional mountain pant for the price.
Breathability: 5k Breathability isn’t very much these days so it’s not going to regulate your moisture.
Overall: If you don’t ride a lot of days a year or ride in a dry climate then this will work well.
