Jake Burton isn't the patron saint of snowboarding, he's just a guy who started making snowboards and never stopped. Today, Burton is a rider-driven company solely dedicated to creating the best snowboard bags, luggage, equipment, bags and accessories on the planet. In 1977, Jake went to Vermont and began Burton in Londonderry. One of the keys to the success of Burton was Jake's push to make snowboarding a sport. Although he had created a market, overnight a competitive industry was born as well. Burton's backpacks are built for maximum endurance and are lightweight and facilitate ease of use and maneuverability in all terrain. The ample storage space and generous pockets mean you can stash all your gear without a second thought. Many Burton backpacks are constructed of strong Cordura Nylon. The roomy interior of a Burton backpack is a safe place to store away everything you need for fun in the sun or on the slopes. Ergonomically designed shoulder straps feature soft padding for your comfort.
