Mountain guides and backcountry pros understand the importance of warm, dry hands. That's why the Burton AK Guide Glove features the weather-beating performance of a Gore-Tex membrane
Constructed using super-soft and seriously supple full grain leather, Burton's Gnar Guard premium leather combines maximum comfort and durable weatherproof/breathable qualities with tough grip, ample dexterity and flexibility. The palm, thumb and fingers of the glove feature reinforced sections in areas of high abrasion.
Between shell and liner sits a Gore-Tex membrane; known for its bomb-proof ultra-weather protection, Gore repels wind and water and transports moisture more effectively than any other membrane on the market. This is complemented by Gore Grip Technology, a method of adhering the normally lose layers of liner securely to the gloves innards, preventing movement between them and promoting tandem movement. This gives the glove a snug, secure fit with unrivalled grip power, ultimate dexterity and refined tactility. Thus making it easier to handle your ski poles, zippers, goggles, bags, binding ratchets, etc.
The palm side of the liner features a brushed microfibre finish, known for its moisture wicking performance, whilst the back of the hand has a Sherpa fleece backing which traps warm air in its piles.
The Primaloft Gold Eco Grip insulation features 90% recycled content. Known for its very high warmth-to-weight ratio, it keeps you warm without adding additional bulk. It's also highly breathable and water resistant making it ideal for keeping your hands dry, however in the event the insulation does become saturated, it stays warm even when wet. The face of the loft features a non-slip grip coating ensuring the insulation stays in place within the glove.
All gloves in the Burton AK range feature a slightly longer Storm Cuff to better protect your wrists from biting winds and blowing snow. Traditionally worn under the jacket sleeve to help form a weather-sealed barrier but also stop accumulated warm air from escaping out of the cuff and into the cold environment.
The Screen Grab leather thumb and index finger feature in-built tech which gives you total touchscreen control without ever exposing your fingers to the cold. It's also super-tough meaning it's durable against fraying and wear.
Topped off with an ergonomic, pre-curved, the AK Guide glove offers superior dexterity and nimbleness thanks to its articulated fit.
