I'm not sure how much gunfire anyone will run into while snowboarding, but I suppose it wouldn't hurt to take precautions with the Burton SLX boot.

The Burton SLX is probably what James Bond would wear if he were escaping his villain's lackies on a mountain. This piece is constructed with Schoeller Keprotec mesh, which is the same material used in a bulletproof vest. Aside from its gun-resistant capabilities, the SLX has a few neat features packed onto it. Burton's has utilized the DRYRIDE Hyperwick technology to regulate warmth through the toes, the Speed Zone system for quicker lace control, Dual-Density Cushioning and a EVA Footbed with ESS Support Shank.

Avalanches are more likely to happen than a shootout on the mountain, but with the SLX on foot, it's better to be safe than sorry right?
