Burlington, VT (Oct 18, 2016) Today, Burton is excited to announce the launch of a new collection of lifestyle and mountain essentials designed by BLVCK SCVLE and Burton. Combining utilitarian functionality, mountain performance and street lifestyle, the collection is the ideal mix of BLVCK SCVLE's signature designs and Burton's leading outerwear technology.
Now available online and in select stores, the new BLVCK SCVLE x Burton collection applies provocatively minimalistic aesthetics and all mountain designs to an assortment of outerwear, hardgoods and accessories. The capsule collection, which includes three jackets, a bib pant, crew, two tech tees, a helmet, two goggles, mitts, a laptop sleeve, kit 2.0, and pack, ranges in price from $69 – $995.
On the outerwear side, the Black Scale x Burton Harbor Jacket outrides convention and is certain to be a standout piece. Available in two different fabrics, the True Black colorway gets the stealth performance of Schoeller® Shape Memory fabric. This densely woven fabric combined with YKK® water-resistant zippers makes for an impenetrable fortress against wind, rain, and snow. Especially unique is the Grey Reflective colorway, which harnesses 300 Candle Power Hi-Tech Reflective Micro Bead fabric for high-visibility in low-light combined with superior waterproof/breathable performance. Details like a stowable micro-adjust hood, multiple storage pockets, and reflective hits complete the high-tech package.
On the accessories side, the is snowboarding's highest performance handwear. With fully taped 3L shell and two liners to choose from (including a Screen Grab® touchscreen control liner), the Black Scale x Burton Trapp Mitt delivers in all conditions. Switch up between the goose down-insulated DRYRIDE Thermex™ fleece mitten liner or the Screen Grab liner and it's like having a quiver of gloves all in one package. It's also equipped with the supple grip and durable shield of Burton's most premium Gnar Guard leather palm.
