Burton Boy's Insulated Element Jacket
Adult jackets tend to have lighter insulation in the sleeves and thicker insulation around the torso, but kids have smaller dimensions and a smaller thermal core, and that's why Burton added a full 100-gm. layer of warm synthetic Thermacore insulation throughout the sleeves and torso in their Insulated Element Jacket. After all, if kids are comfortable, they have more fun and usually learn to ride or ski without annoying distractions. The Insulated Element Jacket features waterproof and moderately breathable Storm-Lite fabric with taping along all critical seams for extra weather protection and enhanced durability. Unlike some Burton boy's jackets, this version of the Element has what Burton calls a "fulltime" hood--that's one that is permanently attached. That's usually not a big deal for most kids, but some don't like a hood flapping in the breeze if they're already wearing a ski or snowboard helmet. The Element features dual chest pockets and an internal ATM pocket that's great for resort cards, lunch money and hotel room keys. This is a great design for budget-conscious families who want quality with a few extra features.
- Waterproof Storm-Lite® fabric treated with a DWR finish
- Warm synthetic 100-g. Thermacore insulation
- Soft tricot lining
- All critical seams taped for added durability and weather protection
- Attached Contour adjustable hood
- Full-length front zipper with glove-friendly zipper pull and draft flap
- Burton ATM pocket for cash and card
- Dual chest pockets

A comfortable fit with some room to grow perfectly decribes this jacket's sizing. Insulation offers plenty of warmth without being overly warm. There is style plus lots of pockets and extra features that make a boy enjoy wearing the jacket. If I had to do over, I would buy it again.

Despite a little pricey, it is reasonable value for your money. Good insulation and modern design. My son loved it ! Standard shipping was fast (one week)

My son loves his new jacket
We let him pick out his own jacket this year - he went back and forth between this one and a few others. He is completely happy with his choice. He even likes the attached hood. He claims "It's warm enough to stand and wait for the bus and looks cool too."
