This is a great jacket that provides amazing lightweight protection for those who want something for traversing or just a really nice jacket to use as a shell. This has been my go-to jacket for my local resort in Minnesota, which I layer with a merino wool base and a hoodie, and then when I go to Colorado, which is... Read more

Mens Burton [ak] Swash GORE‑TEX 2L Jacket

Originally posted at www.burton.com on May 27, 2024
Exactly like the pant version of the [ak] line, this jacket is perfect for every condition. Great for sub zero peak hiking, cat or heli boarding in BC or spring park laps with the Kids and Crew, this jacket handles it all with durability, style and comfort. The only jacket you will ever need for all conditions you may experience!

Awesome service!
5 /5
Luke gave me the confidence to own my first set of skis! I have been hesitant to own, always preferring to bring my boots and rent my skis, but I have always wondered if I shouldn't take the plunge and try ownership. Luke helped me find a good fit for my needs, even though I had no idea what that was, and he even helped me find something at a really great price point! He is friendly and knowledgeable. Curated is a great service, especially for newbies like myself!

Matthew had helped me made this purchase very easy. He's so knowledgeable and listens to what you need. I was pushing back-and-forth and buying my first gear to snowboard, but then Matthew has always been an expert paired to me and he never stopped replying. Been in contact with him for a few months and today. I finally committed on buying my first gear. Been reaching out with Matthew. Maybe this is my fourth time and he always reply nicely And made me feel comfortable whenever I ask questions truly and highly recommended. If you need an expert to help you buy your snowboard gears.

I casually inquired about skis with Nate after getting tired of my rentals. Within 10 minutes, he had found me a pair with bindings that would beat the cost of renting in less than 2 years. Nate had all the answers to my questions about "Why this ski and not that ski?" and made me feel super confident in my purchase.

I've been wanting to buy ski gear for a while now, but honestly didn't have the time or mental capacity to do all the research it takes to really know what gear to buy. My upcoming move to Colorado really made get serious about buying. It was extra convenient that Sara lives in Colorado and is familiar with the conditions I'll be skiing in and what gear will be best. She listened to the questions and concerns I had about gear and measurements and made me feel confident in my purchase! Thanks a ton!
