Burton Gore Windstopper Softshell Hoodie - Soft Shell Jackets: Reviews


Good for Backcountry
Don't worry, it's also available in black and UPS brown. We were surprised that what looks like a soft-shell sweatshirt on acid could perform so well in nasty conditions. But this hoodie felt as at home riding the lifts on a spring corn day as it did café-and barhopping in downtown Denver. The secret to its on-hill performance: pit zips, a (somewhat) adjustable hood, and a Gore Windstopper lining that took the chill out of long, breezy lift rides and easily repelled a freak Mount Hood squall. Detach the hood, however, and (if you don't choose this "color") you've got a low-key, weatherproof jacket for cruising around town all winter. 1.6 lbs; burton.com
