Arriving this week at selected adidas Originals and Burton flagship stores, the Burton x adidas Originals Apparel Collection by Kazuki Kuraishi is quite distinguishable on several fronts. One, despite its overtly simplistic appearance, especially in comparison to his Originals by Originals Collection, Kuraishi added details that would normally not be available in other adidas Originals creations, or even within this particular collaboration with Burton. An avid snowboarder himself, Kuraishi gave the Burton x adidas Originals Technical Jacket 3L KZK a Diaplex membrane, the so-called "intelligence fabric" for its ability to accordingly to temperature and other factors. All seams fully sealed, gaiter cuffs, a duo button-zip placket, the herringbone patterned cotton construct is actually rated for 20,000mm in water permeability and 15,000gm for moisture alleviation, both well within the industry standard. But just in case any wearers want to take on the backcountry routes, Kuraishi added the Burton x adidas Originals Insulator Vest KZK. A perfect stone alone piece or as a second layer, the fleece-lined vest in quilted pattern guarantee a run down the slope without compromises.
