When the skies are clear in the backcountry or the weather's warm at the resort, don't stifle yourself in a big, bulky jacket. The Burton Women's AK Roll Softshell Jacket is equipped with an incredibly stretchy and breathable softshell fabric to allow maximum mobility and comfort when you're on the slopes.
The DryRide softshell fabric holds in warmth when you need it and breathes when you start to heat up to keep you comfy on both the way up and the way down, and it's super-stretchy for total freedom of movement whether you're hiking or riding. The AK fit allows room to layer underneath in case it gets chilly at the top, and a removable contoured hood shields your head from the elements when the weather suddenly turns on you.
The color was exactly the royal purple I was looking for. I am 5'8, 130 with muscular shoulders and back that sometimes make jackets fit tight up top and baggy around the middle. The stretch material is so comfortable and forgiving. This jacket contours nicely to the body. I started with the medium, which looked perfect with only a thin baselayer underneath, but then I opted to size up so that I could layer more for cold dry days on the hill.
