Burtons $950 dollar jacket

I though it was nuts for me to pay over 600 bucks for an AK 3layer jacket last year and now I see they have a $950 dollar jacket. That is definately nosebleed territory. I am not sure how one would justify that price.

Haha. There is one fellow on the forum that would probably have both, can't recall his name.

snow industry has the highest markup in retail.

I don't ever buy anything unless it is at least 50% to start.

everything goes to 50% in the off season.

my buy range is usually 70%-90% off.

Dude it's a restricted collab with a Japanese company. In line with Japanese Burton prices... not so much ours.

That's too funny, as i was reading that I thought the same thing.

Took me a min to remember who it was
Once I remembered who it was, I didn't think I'd be able to spell it right?

Haven't seen a post from him in ages...

Scroll down a little more and
BOOM

Sassicaia.
That's how you spell it.

I seen him on the hill and he looks just like he did in his old avatar, that's how I knew it was him.

I'm usually fairly polite in stores -- you know, never openly mocking what they have for sale.

But once I was in REI and saw some new Arcteryx windbreaker that was about $475 I think. I just completely burst out laughing. Salesperson came and asked me if everything was OK. I apologized, but did tell him why. Seriously, what magic does this windbreaker do. (If I was in full asshole mode, I probably would've asked, "Does this thing give blowjobs?" (or mega-asshole "Does this thing fellate the wearer?")) He said they told them something or other in their spring product line training that it had some super-special taped seams (or was it the water-proofing seam thingies that go over the zipper) that had the closest tolerances in the industry and that was the official reason for the price. Um, yeah. I saw them again at the end of the season for $325 or so. But, still, yeah.

Sooner or later your legs give way, you hit the ground.
