Burton Boy's Apollo Snowboard Jacket
Created with low-bulk Thermacore synthetic insulation, Burton's Apollo Jacket helps trap body heat as the quilted microfleece lining pulls vapor and moisture away from the skin. It's a smart layer-free solution for young snowboarders who spend the entire day (sometimes even lunch) riding in varied weather conditions. The Storm-Lite 1.0 shell fabric is waterproof and breathable, but it's the lowest degree of vapor transfer (5,000-mm./4,000-g.) offered in the Burton outerwear fabric lineup. Is this a big deal? Not for most kids, who tend to perspire considerably less than adults--but it's still a small factor that parents should consider when buying outerwear for there kids (ask yourself what sort of conditions your kids ride in--most families are fair weather riders, so it won't be a problem). The Apollo offers extra pockets and pouches for energy bars and other snacks that help balance out the calorie count from that missed lunch. Mesh-lined Pit Zips beneath sleeves also help create a cross flow effect while riding, enhancing the overall venting performance during those warm spring days on the mountain.

Great Burton Jacket
My 10 year old son loves his new coat. It's perfect for windy, snowy winters in WI. Altrec is fantastic to work with too.
