BURTON FALL 2013/2014 Preview

Salt Lake Palace/SLC

Burton debuted a lot of key winter pieces-tech apparel, casual clothes and GEAR galore-at the most recent Outdoor Retailer...

(For more from the NYC Media Preview: apparel and gear....)


"Rider Driven" ---for on mountain performance that is second to existence since 1977 when Jake Burton Carpenter first started the company.

We only had a half hour----but snapped away at as much as we could.
Varsity style---down sleeves and weather tough core---in a stylish package

weather tough and insulated-2 way zip- tailored fit 
Urban style + mountain functionality -there was plenty of good looking layerable outwear pieces...made from techy textiles like Burton's DRYRIDE fabrics, Gore-Tex-Active Shell + Wind Stopper textiles, 3M™Thinsulate™ insulation, Primaloft® (etc) ---and made with design features that double as practical attributes.
two bomber styles----part of men's AirLine Collection

classic old school style-cardigan and lots flap button pockets on everyday jacket

Waterproof/breathable---and adorable camo print pattern... that's completely reworked for Fall 2013/14...with a slightly more modern fit for shredders.

Eco points-Burton has been upping its GREEN MOUNTAIN PROCESS---last season--including the MTN DEW collection-with apparel pieces made from recycled plastic bottles... a great success...and one that continues. Also a big deal-for 2014 Burton is a bluesign® system partner----to ensure that both gear, stuff and clothing is all made environmentally responsibly. Yeah!

Another initiative is the use of BIONIC® yarns made of 40%-45% recycled content that is 400% stronger than conventional yarns---in the all new Burton x Bionic® softgoods collection. Very cool-the collab with genius Pharrel Williams for an urban line of eco-friendly snowboard outerwear and accessories.
