Ziptech, Link-Zip etc Jacket/Pant Interface

I am off to Japan for a month in the powder and I got 2011 Burton AK Cyclic jacket but it doesn't have the link zip for the Jacket/Pant interface. I know I can just use the clips but I'm planning to be in some pretty deep powder. Does anyone know where I can get a powder skirt I can zip into the jacket (size L) that has the link zip for the pants?? Happy to buy one new or used. Any help getting hold of one greatly appreciated!

Well if I knew that before I got a new Jacket I might have. The Jacket is great though and some Burton stuff has the Link-Zip but they had to discontinue last year cause of the Volcom patent. I'm hoping someone can sell me a powder skirt that will fit zip into my jacket and zip into the pants too. I don't care what brand or how old as long as it fits.

question for you since you own this jacket: I am looking to get one but I keep seeing that a helmet won't fit under the hood. Can you shed some light on this situation? Thanks.

Guess I should have specified which jacket; I was looking in regards to the Burton Cyclic. I can pick one up for ~80 bucks right now, which would be a great deal. Just need to have a helmet under the hood :-\

Your best bet is to find a tailor to sew in a zipper, I did it to mine. Pretty simple really.

My Helmet fits pretty good. If anything it is the extra height that is the issue not really the width. Given the choice I would have a little more room when looking around (turning/tilting my head) but it's such a good jacket I'll put up with it.

Can't comment on the Volcom gear. I'm sure some of it is good too.
