Burton X Carhartt

Burton SnowBoards and Carhartt WIP team up on 2012 outerwear collaboration.

Burton and Carhartt WIP officially launched their new 2011/2012 product collaboration today, with the arrival of co-branded outerwear in select stores around the world.

This is the second project between the two brands, and for 2011/2012 the partnership includes a jacket and pant in a collaborative Burton X Carhartt WIP signature design, blending the technical performance of Burton with the utility-driven work-wear look iconic to Carhartt.

The Burton x Carhartt WIP jacket is based off of one of Carhartt’s most popular and rugged designs, aptly called the Traditional. For this project, the special co-branded edition is constructed from a double layer Gore-TeX® Performance oxford shell fea- turing fully taped seams protected by 13 mm Gore-seaM® tape. Further, the authen- tic work style cut of the Traditional has also been modified, to create a better street- wear silhouette and overall snowboard fit. other design features include a removable contour hood and corduroy detailing, as well as chest and hand warmer pockets.

The Burton x Carhartt WIP pant is modeled after Carhartt’s classic single Knee pant, also slightly modified by the collective design team for a better snowboard meets streetwear fit. Fabrication on the pant is also second to none, featuring the double lay- er Gore-TeX® Performance oxford shell and Gore-TeX® taped seams. The Burton x Carhartt WIP jacket and pant can be connected via a removable waist gaiter with jacket-to-pant interface for added protection. Both pieces are offered with Burton’s lifetime guarantee.

available in traditional Carhartt Brown or Black, the Burton x Carhartt WIP jacket and pant are available starting today in Burton Flagship stores, Carhartt stores and select retailers.
