First Tracks

It's no surprise two OG New England brands go way back. One of Polartec's original fleece customers in the early 1990s, Burton has consistently incorporated our fabric technologies into their consistently progressive apparel design.

Burton Blog Throw Back Inset

Our collaborations trace the history and development of a culture Burton helped define, and we, in no small part, have them to thank for bringing technical fabrics to the snowboarding market. In fact, today Burton uses Polartec fabric in more than 100 products, including pants, balaclavas, beanies, and pullovers.

We're honored to be a part of our newest collaboration, the One World x Polartec® capsule collection — a demonstration of the quality possible when sustainability is the driving inspiration. Made from fabrics knit from recycled bottles, manufactured using less water, and with an innovative technology to reduce microfiber shedding, One World is an ethos that leads by example.

One World

One World is more than just an apparel collection, it's also the title of Burton’s ambitious video project and affirmation of their commitment to sustainability, freestyle expression, and the fundamental values of snowboarding. Available on Amazon Prime, "One World" follows 39 of their top team riders like Mark McMorris, Danny Davis, Kimmy Fasani, Anna Gasser and many many more as they stomp and slash through urban and mountainous terrain. It's over 30 minutes of awe-inspiring air and daring tricks in unexpected places set to a killer soundtrack interrupted only by rider shenanigans. Here's a sneak peek:

The team video, snowboarding's most familiar and credible medium, asserts Burton's dedication to preserving the "one world" that connects all snowboarders. Sustainability is an integral part of that responsibility, and we're enabling and amplifying Burton's commitment to that value with the One World capsule collection. It features cutting-edge fabric technologies for a range of conditions, including Alpha, Power Dry, Power Grid, and Power Air in addition to classic fleece styles like 200 Series and Thermal Pro all inspired by the One World feature and made with recycled PET plastics.
