Burton Freelight Pullover Re-Issue

10 February 2014, 16.49 | Posted in jackets, snowboarding | 1 comment »


As always, Burton has more than a few special treats hidden amongst their expansive lineup for 2015. The first one that jumped out at us at SIA is this rad re-issue of Burton’s original “Freelight” pull over jacket from 1991. The Jeff Brushie designed piece was not only given the technical update to convert it into a superlight shell but this colorway sports a familiar elephant print pattern on the body. We predict this is gonna be a top seller. Take a closeup look at the label after the jump.

Burton x Bionic Full Collection

15 November 2013, 17.09 | Posted in collabs, snowboarding | No comments »


We previewed Burton’s collab collection with Pharrel Williams’ Bionic yarn brand during our SIA coverage in February. Now the collection is available online and at select retailers. Consisting of a 3L jacket and pant, a 2L jacket, a down bomber, gloves, a backpack, and a rad trooper hat all made from sustainable yarn inspired from the fabrics of Bolivia, the collection seems like one that could have some legs although we aren’t super crazy about the color options for this year. Check out full looks after the jump.

Burton x Marvel Outerwear

04 November 2013, 09.48 | Posted in collabs, snowboarding | 5 comments »


First they torture us with the Star Wars collabo, now Burton does it again by making a sick ass collab with Marvel Comics and only making it in children’s sizes. So if you want to rock this dark all over print kit featuring Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow and Hawkeye, you’re either gonna have to start losing mad weight or buy several pairs, take em apart, and then piece them together into an adult size. Or you could just let the kids have it. Good Luck! A look at the pants after the jump.

Burton Presents WOMEN [SNOWBOARDING]

Despite the fact that they rip and inspire girls the world over, women have been getting an even shorter end of the stick lately when it comes to screen time in major snowboard videos. That’s why it’s rad that Burton devoted an entire 15 minute section to their 4 part online release this year just to let Kimmy Fasani, Kelly Clark, Hannah Teter, Arielle Gold, Enni Rukajärvi, and Cilka Sadar do their thing. And do it they do. Enjoy.
