Known for all things Winter and snowboarding, Burton as a brand has never looked stronger. This year Burton has dipped their toes jumped head first into styling Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer apparel collections, making them a go-to brand for all your apparel needs. This Spring and Summer we teamed up with the folks at Burton to see what they had in store for mother nature’s warmer months. We’re talking tee shirts, shorts and hats!

When slapping together a concise collection we like to hit all the staples. In this collection article we choose to test and review 6 items, including a hoodie, shorts, tee shirt, a hat, duffel bag and belt to cinch everything together. After spending the past month and a half with each piece we’re happy to share the highlights of what Burton has to offer in their Summer collection. So without further adieu… here we go!

Bradley Belt

2013_PROD_DETAIL_DESKTOPKey Features:

  • 100% Polyester Print with 100% Cotton Webbing
  • Mountain Logo Detail

What would Summer styling be without a belt to keep your pants cinched? The Burton Bradley Belt comes in two patterns, “Aloha Weed Print” and “Fishing Lures.” Both prints are nice, but we prefer the lures, because it screams Summer and it also matches our Beeracuda perfectly.

Expedition Hat

2013_PROD_DETAIL_DESKTOP (1)Key Features:

  • 100% Polyester
  • Unstructured 5-Panel
  • Front Panel Screen Print

Topping off the Summer collection for Burton is a little something to keep your dome looking fresh and the sun out of your eyes. The Expedition Hat is a 5-panel classic “ball cap” that shows off your allegiance to Burton with a simple mountain logo and the words: “Expedition, Adventure and Burton” across the front. If you’re trendy (unlike us) keep your bill ironed flat and crisp. If you’re looking for something more functional bend the bill and keep the sun at bay. Either way you’ll love this comfy / rugged hat.
