I know there's a thread about 2013 boards, but when is 2013 outerwear typically released? I wanted to get a Burton AK jacket this season, but didn't get around to it soon enough and now they're pretty much sold out in every color.
Count me in as well. I missed out on the Smurf Plaid Measurement Stagger Jacket but was able to score some True Black Stagger Pants on sale at Sport Chalet for $192. I'm desperately trying to find a worthy jacket for the pants but can't find shit in a Medium. I can find a True Black Stagger jacket but Black/Black is too much. I'm considering the Grayeen but I don't know how that'll look with the black pants.
From what I can tell, some shops were advertising the 2012 AK line in June of last year. If that's the case, it would seem like we are only a few months away. Might be worth waiting for the next gen instead of settling for a color I'm not crazy about.
I cant speak on about jackets specifically but I saw a bought some 2013 AK stuff at a sample sale yesterday. He is a pic of a down jacket i bought. If next year's down jackets mimic the color styles of the jackets like this did this year this will give you an idea. I saw a light blue (did care for) dark blue (very cool) red and this olive color.
This should pretty much answer the thread tittle. I was allowed to go to the section next seasons AK stuff to have a look and buy what I wanted. Since I already have 2 new pairs of AK pants, and a new AK jacket I was more interested in seeing stuff then buying, but I picked up a pair of pants just for the cool factor and price. I wont share what I paid but compared to retail it was stupid cheap. Ill apologize for the shitty pictures, but I wasnt 100% sure if I was allowed to take pics, but thought it was ok since I was allowed to buy what i wanted.
Hover Pants on the Left and Cyclic pants on the right. I loved the hover color, but the blue would have looked like ass next to the dark blue on the zippers on my AK jacket. I wanted it to match and buy them, but just couldnt. The ones on the right I bought and show good examples of a lot of the colors being used (not all the colors) in next years AK line.
close up of the cyclic. Since i bought these ones i could probably take a better picture now they are at home if someone really wants me to.
close up of the Hover pant zipper. Looks like ALL the zippers have gone to this style. Personally I prefer the current year's better, but they changed because they were "too stiff and hard to open and shut".
Looks like a crap load of windbreakers will be out next year in the AK line
