Burton Covert Jacket is one of the popular models that will impress you with a low price and advanced features. The model we tested came with a bit of insulation which is always a good thing, average price, and many features. Now you can enjoy the complete review and see all the elements that can help you choose the best possible jacket for cold months.

Most Important Burton Covert Jacket Features

In the lack of a better word, the Burton Covert Jacket is an advanced model. This means that the unit has a lot to offer, it is designed and made using the latest technologies and so much more. Below are the main features and elements explained.

  • Breathability

Breathability is similar as the one of the models from the same price range. It is decent but not great and can be considered as the only the downside of the jacket in question. We prefer high-end breathability simply because it eliminates the risk of sweating and makes time on the snow more comfortable. The Burton Covert Jacket is average in this case.

  • Durability

Thanks to the nylon shell, the jacket is very durable and can resist all the elements. In the lack of a better word, we can add that the model will last for years and it is probably considered as a smart investment by most of you. The durability won’t be an issue for the most demanding users and it is one of the main advantages here.

  • Waterproofing

Thanks to the Dryride technology and the 10k waterproofness, the water won’t be a problem even if you are the most demanding user out there. 10k waterproofness rating means that one square inch of material can withstand 33 feet of water for 24 hours. The Dryride technology consists of tiny fibers that will draw the water from the body and push it to the top layers, keeping the wearer warm and also dry.

  • Warmth

The Burton Covert Jacket is one of the warmest models you can have today. This is possible thanks to the Living Lining. This system has several layers which will keep the wind and water away from you. The first layer is designed to repel water, the second to dry fast and the third will open when the heat reaches a specific temperature allowing for the jacket to breathe more.

  • Pockets

There are 4 pockets on the outside of the jacket. All of them are massive compared to other variations so they can be used for larger smartphones and etc. Inside you get 2 additional pockets with great insulation and a high level of attention to detail.

  • Hoods

The hood is definitely worthy of the name. It is contoured hood meaning it will fit nicely across the helmet and goggles regardless of which type and size you are wearing. The hood will help you stay warm and it is extremely comfortable. Adjusting the hood is simple as well and there are no major issues here.

  • Packability

You will be able to pack the Burton Covert Jacket in a small bag and transport it easily.  This model is lightweight and has a low amount of insulation making it suitable for wearers who want to travel light and who want to stay warm but don’t like heavy and massive jackets.

  • Insulation

There is a little insulation present in the jacket. It is mostly made from polyester 55% and recycled polyester (45%). All we can add at this point is that the jacket will keep all the wearers warm across the mountain and it is one of the warmest models in the class. The latest technologies and superb attention to detail make this even more possible.

What We Like

  • Warmness is great
  • The jacket is strong and durable
  • Value for money
  • Lightweight design
  • Contoured hood is compact and easy to use

What We Don’t

  • Slim fit may be an issue for some wearers
  • Breathability is average

Our Final Verdict about Burton Covert Jacket

Burton Covert Jacket is suitable for those who need a warm, compact and comfortable jacket to wear while spending a long period of time on the mountains or in a cold environment. It is easy to pack, comes with high practicality and it is still a very affordable m
