We review the Burton Rubix Jacket to see if this stylish snowboard jacket is all the jacket you'll need for the slopes this season
The fantastic multi-coloured jacket a typical Burton snowboard cut; long and spacious which means excellent comfort and warmth. It is made with two-layer Gore-tex to keep you warm and dry and also includes Thermolite insulation.
There are pockets low on the outside, and an inside pocket plus ski pass holder near the bottom of the jacket; which might mean you have to hoik up your jacket when you go through electronic turnstiles, but it's a small price to pay for the having the look this jacket gives you.
The material is impressively soft, given the Gore-tex integration, which feels great and adds to the comfortable feel.
Our only quibble here would be, given its feel, how long this material will last, especially if you snowboard when board carriage could cause minor tears over time. This could mean your outfit might last slightly less long depending on how tough on kit you generally are.
The jacket's Thermolite insulation will keep you warm enough with thermals and just a top underneath, but it's also spacious enough to add more layers or even a down on those really cold days without spoiling the look of the jacket.
We particularly liked the bright pattern; it is quite different to many other jackets we have seen. Build quality is good, with dependable Gore-tex performance and a comfortable fit that will make a good impression both on you and those around you!
