Dive deep into smoky pow and keep coming back for more in the Burton Men's Encore Jacket. This insulated, waterproof jacket lets you board until bored without looking like a tweaking tweener out for his first ride. The Sig Fit build lets you layer when the bottom falls out of the thermometer, without giving you so much room that you'd get sloppy. The DryRide Durashell and Thinsulate insulation keeps you warm and dry unless forecasters have named the storm, or the record books are opening for the expected onslaught of wintry weather.
DryRide Durashell nylon plain weave fabric withstands abrasions from winter weather, be it in the air or on the ground. You'll be able to do repeat tours of your favorite bowl when flurries fly or spring sun makes sweet, creamy corn. Sweat won't be a factor and when things get heated, open up the underarm zips to vent your hot air. Swamps are good for gators, but definitely don't belong in your pits.
The fulltime contour hood is ready in an instant when snow sneaks up on you. The powder skirt keeps smoky snow dust off your back, and microfleece-lined hand-warmer pockets keep your digits dialed into warmth. The internal audio sleeve hides in the internal goggle pocket so you can shred in time to your favorite tunes. When you wear the right pants, the Jacket-to-Pant interface lets you create a Burton suit when you need full-body protection from the elements.

I needed a new jacket this year, and since my last Burton jacket lasted for 13 years I decided to get another. I love the attention to detail that Burton puts into its gear. I debated between this jacket and another, but ended up choosing this one, primarily because of aesthetics.
I like most things about this jacket. There is enough pockets for what I need, the fit is comfortable, and the hood and neck closure are comfortable and do a good job of keeping the weather out.
The one thing that it lacks that I want in a jacket is wrist gaiters. This jacket does have a little elastic thing that is supposed to go over your thumb to keep the sleeves from riding up when you take a spill, but I haven't been using them much because they aren't super comfortable. I find myself wishing I had been able to find a jacket I liked with the wrist gaiters, especially since this will likely be the jacket I wear for the next several years. That said, I am not unhappy with my purchase.
Overall this is a good jacket with most of the key features.
Traditional to loose fitting, mid warmth and great waterproofing equals a hell of a good time on the slopes.
Would have given this jacket 5/5. I ordered the "Turf Colorblock" but when it arrived, I saw that the bottom stripe is a very bright green as apposed to the dark blue pictured on dogfunk. It did not look nearly as good as the picture, in my opinion.
Aside from the turf jacket, I don't know how burton thinks any of those other color combos might be appealing. I'm not trying to look like a rainbow flying down the mountain. This jacket preforms very well but it just needs better colors.
