Peak Heat

Winter clothes aren’t known for being form fitting. But what if you’re a snowboarding athlete who needs high-performance gear that allows you to go farther, higher and bigger than ever before?

Trail Mapping

In 2011, Burton and 3M teamed up to create the Trail Mapping system. It uses different types of 3M™ Thinsulate™ , placed strategically around the body, to provide warmth and free range of motion where it’s needed.

The Burton Hackett Snowboard Jacket with Trail Mapping, featuring 3M™ Thinsulate™ Insulation, keeps warmth in, while letting moisture escape.

“I need gear that keeps me warm, even when it’s wet. And that isn’t so bulky I can’t pull off big scores from the judges.”

Marvin Jones and Justin Keogh from 3M Occupational Health & Environmental Safety show Burton athletes Hannah Teter and Mark Sollors how 3M™ Thinsulate™ Insulation is made.

“The run that won gold in Torino won’t even get you into the finals in 2014. Each year athletes are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. The gear we wear needs to be able to keep up.”

Maxing the Warmth

Thinsulate is one to two times warmer than duck down and less water absorbent, too. Most importantly for these athletes, it doesn’t restrict their range of motion.
