Burton Announces the Hottest New Camping Accessory

BURLINGTON, VT (July 6th, 2016) Today, Burton Durable Glampware is excited to announce the latest innovation in backcountry self-immolation technology: The Stone Hut Tent.

This Stone Hut Tent ushers in a new era of self-indulgent, collab leisure, with a strong emphasis on fire-hot glamping. The team at Big Agnes worked with some of Stowe Mountain Resort’s leading pyromaniacs to craft a highly combustible design that ensures only a smoldering glob of nylon will remain when you’re done chillin’ in the semi-wilderness. Now you can finally take to the backcountry and feel confident that it won’t be your problem after you leave. Simply utilize the LIB™ (Let-It-Blaze™) technology by leaning some dry wood against the exterior of the tent and watch those blue green flames burn the whole structure down.

Using Burton’s patented SorryDad™ technology, the Stone Hut Tent is guaranteed to go up in flames and leave your family shaking their heads with your choices in life. Once ignited by the LIB™ technology, the tent utilizes its highly flammable compound that has been woven into its exterior. It also features color coded lightweight aluminum poles, so no matter how hard you are tripping on the sheet of blotter paper that comes hidden in the aptly named Stash Pocket™, the Stone Hut Tent is always an easy set-up.

“Our boys were really tired of having to lug their tents back to the G-Wagon after a long weekend of raging, so we called Big Agnes and said, ‘hey we need a tent that sort of just disappears but is still kind of big deal,’” explains Burton’s Co-Founder Donna Carpenter. “Sure they could hike back up or call our butler to tell them to go get their tent, but why bother?” she added. Despite persistent Internet rumors, Carpenter also wants everyone to know that the Stone Hut Tent is not named “after the time our sons got fucked up on drugs and burned down a historic mountain cabin.”

The Stone Hut Tent has already received rave reviews from across the blogosphere, with The Good Life proclaiming it to be, “Honestly V dank and looks sick in our Greenpoint micro-loft.”

Portland, Oregon’s street style blog, Urban Weeds explained, “This is the perfect tent for crushing some PBR with your analog camera and a few of your favorite wide brimmed hats.”

Available today in the Famish Stripe and YEAH DRUGS! colorways. With a limited edition color, Wookstain, to be released this fall. The Stone Hut Tent will be available at all Burton StoresTwiddle concerts and various closeout websites!

So bring your boutique axe and your fitted work pants. Listen to the Allman Brothers “Mountain Jam”, trip out, and forget that you started that fire that is now burning down a National Forest.

    It’s sad to see a brand struggle so much with it’s identity. Could be the nonstop departure of talent or the desperation caused by the nationals implosion, but either way, it hurts to watch. The owners are the Bill and Hillary of snowboarding, losing relevance and respect daily. They change everything aside from what’s really wrong. The employees have turned into a passionless pit of soldiers, that carry out orders and don’t ask questions. Silent and stupid is the only way to survive in that place from what I hear, and it makes it really hard to support a brand like that. I know plenty of people that used to work there and they would never go back unless someone else bought the company, and to me, that says a lot about the brand.

    Love this article.
    I get what burton is doing, a company has to grow. Re-branding as a lifestyle company isn’t a bad play. I just wish they did it in a way that gave back more to the sport. IE pay team riders.

    If you want to do yoga with Jack and Danny, buy Burton. If you want to snowboard, support a snowboard brand. I bet Shaun White can play “Wagon Wheel” everywhere he goes too, but he’s smart enough not to.

    Like or hate, burton has to reach out to other industries because snowboarding isn’t sustainable as people migrate to other hobbies.
    One might suggest that sites like yobeat creates a culture that keeps the G Wagon, money paying people away by acting with an ultimately shitty attitude of exclusive gypsies.
    That said, Burton could care less. By including the G wagon crowd they are including new people. Deep down they aren’t interested in hooking the yobeater core crowd with a board for “like $15 bucks”
    Still… Article is still kinda funny. I take no side.

    If your best buddy wanted to pay you a ton of $ to do next to nothing other than supply him with endless amounts of nasal pow, travel the world in designer pajamas, and occasionally let him diddle your man wife, you would probably do it too! Don’t hate the player, hate the coach! The game is tight!

Don’t feel appreciated working as a mindless slave? Here we will give you some sweet branded mason jars and a pie once a year blended with our, “Special Blend” of dumbfuckery and severe douchebaggary sure to keep you employed for at least 6.254 months or until lay-offs which ever comes sooner!!!

    Save a tree, eat a beaver says:

    It is obvious that upper management has no idea what they are doing. Each and every “new idea” is a half ass attempt to regain the Burton of old. I bet they do something stupid like try and bring back “Step In” next. What made them great back in the early 2000’s were their employees. Those days are long gone! If you care about snowboarding, you will not agree with how that place is run, and if you can embrace the idea of leaving VT, you will quit. Hundreds have. Sustainability starts with retaining employees. You can’t just make a garden outside and take away everyones trash cans and call yourself green. Burton is a puppet show and once you see behind the curtain, you simply can no longer believe in it. Sincerity was lost years ago.

    Every single person commenting missed the point here, jake’s kids burned down the fucking stone hut, and completely got away with it. are you fucking kidding me? Will jake rebuild the stone hut? He’s got enough cash in the cupholder of his Caddy, jesus. This company is in the toilet and the kids are out of control lunatics with big time trust funds. Check out george on instagram, bangin’ up and down the east coast, not really in school, showing up at sales meetings, partying with frends, keeping it real, toking weed, being the man. what a joke. whoever put out this press release are some damn good writers thats for sure. And statusjef, get a fucking job, support your family and get off Greg’s dick. #quitethehikingdeadbeatdad

    Best Case Scenario says:

    The best thing that can happen to that brand at this point, it gets sold. The owners have had enough. Their hearts clearly aren’t in it anymore but they are addicted to the $. They can’t retain good employees to save their life because they choose to line the top shelf with incompetent half wits whose only qualification is that they do drugs well, and keep secrets better! The employees that have been worn down to the point that they can’t leave on their own deserve new parents that will treat them like real people. I’m putting my $ on a VF acquisition in the next 12 months. Whoever buys them needs to fire 8 people in order for the brand to stand a chance. Hit me back and I’ll give you all 8 names!

  16. HR you kidding me?
    HR you kidding me? says:

    It’s game time and employees are dropping like flies. People are getting wise and acknowledging the writing on the wall, finally. Employees are quitting faster than Human Resources can count and it’s the kind of people that gave that place hope. Wrap it up b! No one wants to work there anymore!

    We stand on planks of wood and ride on snow, why all the hate says:

    I hear Brooke the founder of this website applied for a job at Burton 4 times and was never accepted….maybe that’s why she’s hating so hard
