Our Analysis

The Burton AK 2L Swash jacket replaces the Burton AK Stagger jacket. The Swash uses the same two layer GoreTex as the Stagger and adds Primaloft insulation to the body of the jacket. It also uses the same functional pocket design on the front of the jacket.

The swash comes in eight different color ways from solids to to prints including Vintage Duck Camo.

The Swash retails for $400 but expect to find it at big discounts as the season draws to and end.

Look for a full review of the Swash in the future.
