Each winter season we see the latest styles and designs in snowboarding jackets and this season is no different. Here we showcase some of our favourite snowboard jackets for this 2012/13 season.
Burton X COOGI
There’s always one snowboard jacket that sticks out above the rest and this season it could be the Burton X COOGI. COOGI are well known for their colorful knitwear founded in Australia and were popularised in the U.S. as urban hip-hop wear by rappers such as Biggie and famous comedian/actor, Bill Cosby. For this 2012 season, the label has collaborated with Burton for a special Rubdown down snowboard jacket…and man it’s colorful!
Burton Payday Puffy
Ride Admiral Jacket
Dakine Zone Jacket
Burton Poacher Jacket
For entry level snowboarders or intermediate riders looking for a budget option, it’s hard to do better than the Burton Poacher. Burton describes the jacket as “weatherproof breathable.” This means that the two layers of protection allow some breathability, but the seams are taped for protection from cold. Although this jacket is short on high-tech features, the interior mesh goggle pocket (with audio stash for your iPod or mp3 player) is a nice upgrade.
686 Reserved Havoc Insulated Jacket
Burton AK Collection 2L LZ Down Jacket
I think Burton again this season have the coolest snowboard jacket range out of all the jacket manufacturers.
