One of our favorite action sports brands, Burton, invited us to preview their Fall/Winter collection. For us, it was like being a kid in a candy store.
Things to watch out for include: 3D printed jacket, leather motorcycle jacket from the Shaun White collection which White has actually tested on the mountain, bottle openers (never know when you might need to open a cold brew, or a root beer if you're in AA), a snowboard made to look like a pizza box with a scratch and sniff that actually smells like pizza, letterman varsity jackets, base layers that pay homage to iconic brands like Listerine, and matching prints from snowboards to outerwear for the ladies.
While it may feel like summer outside, imagining that we are snowboarding in colder locales help distract us from the oppressive heat. So we'll be adding some of these to our shopping list and getting in our pre-orders ASAP.
