Why It's CoolJake welded all the seams together, eliminating 26 feet of tape and a spool or so worth of thread. » This construction, along with the choice of fabric— Burton's own Storm-Lite waterproof-breathable, which has a soft nylon outer shell—makes the Continuum Fuse noticeably more pliable than a sewn coat. » The elbows are articulated, and the cut of the underarm curve somehow keeps the waterproof venting zippers from catching under your pits. Nicely done. » Burton backs the front waterproof zipper with a fabric flap for added insurance against leaks. » Bagging Shasta? The hood is spacious enough to accommodate a helmet. » Elastic at the ergonomically molded cuffs makes for a good, tight seal.

Hmmm . . .The snowboarder silhouette may be too baggy for those who don't listen to OutKast.
