Burlington, VT Burton and Carhartt WIP officially launched their new 2011/2012 product collaboration today, with the arrival of co-branded outerwear in select stores around the world.
This is the second project between the two brands, and for 2011/2012 the partnership includes a jacket and pant in a collaborative Burton X Carhartt WIP signature design, blending the technical performance of Burton with the utility-driven work-wear look iconic to Carhartt.
The Burton x Carhartt WIP jacket is based off of one of Carhartt’s most popular and rugged designs, aptly called the Traditional. For this project, the special co-branded edition is constructed from a double layer GORE-TEX® Performance Oxford shell featuring fully taped seams protected by 13 mm GORE-SEAM® tape.
Further, the authentic work style cut of the Traditional has also been modified, to create a better streetwear silhouette and overall snowboard fit. Other design features include a removable contour hood and corduroy detailing, as well as chest and hand warmer pockets.
The Burton x Carhartt WIP pant is modeled after Carhartt’s classic Single Knee pant, also slightly modified by the collective design team for a better snowboard meets streetwear fit.
Fabrication on the pant is also second to none, featuring the double layer GORE-TEX® Performance Oxford shell and GORE-TEX® taped seams.
The Burton x Carhartt WIP jacket and pant can be connected via a removable waist gaiter with jacket-to-pant interface for added protection. Both pieces are offered with Burton’s lifetime guarantee.
Available in traditional Carhartt Brown or Black, the Burton x Carhartt WIP jacket and pant are available starting today in Burton Flagship stores, Carhartt stores and select retailers.
