Jake Burton launched the planet's first snowboard factory in 1977. More than three decades later, Burton Snowboard is still going strong, making some of the most sought-after snowboarding gear ever. Burton Snowboard is still headquartered in Vermont. Burlington, Vermont, to be exact. I hear they have a skate ramp out back, which makes them pretty awesome in my book.
Burton began development of their outerwear line back in 1984. I was a year old, so I don't really remember it. I do know that now you'll probably see some of the most serious snowboarders on the slopes outfitted in Burton clothing. That's pretty much because Burton snowboard jackets and Burton snowboard pants keep them warm and comfortable without binding or inhibiting their movement. You need outerwear like that if you're gonna do sweet tricks. Stick a Burton beanie on your mellon, and some Burton gloves on your hands, and you're totally good to go.
You can rep Burton gear off the slopes too, in Burton clothing. There's Burton women's clothing, like pants, tops and skirts, and Burton men's clothing, like shorts, pants, t-shirts, and hoodies. Everybody loves a Burton hoodie. You'll even find Burton gear for kids. Check out Kids' Burton Jackets, clothing, and snowboarding gear. Burton makes accessories, too.
