TODAY I’LL BE REVIEWING THE BONFIRE TAYLOR, A WOMENS JACKET IN THE 2013/14 BONFIRE OUTERWEAR LINE. COLLEEN WAS NICE ENOUGH TO GIVE ME THIS JACKET WHEN SAMPLES CAMP BACK FROM SIA AND I WAS STOKED TO GET IT CAUSE HAVING NEXT YEARS GEAR IS SO MUCH COOLER. THE JACKET IS PROTECTED AT 20K(WATERPROOF)/15K(BREATHABLE) — WHICH MEANS ALMOST GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE NORTHWEST AND TOTALLY FINE FOR EVERYWHERE ELSE, AND IS IN THE GOLD LINE, WHICH SOUNDS PRETTY SWEET IF YOU ASK ME.

NEXT, THIS JACKET IS PURPLE. NOT LIKE LILAC, BUT MORE LIKE A PLUM. JUDGING BY THE FACT THAT I GOT A FEW ITEMS THAT COLOR THIS YEAR, I ASSUME IT WILL BE A HOT COLOR NEXT SEASON – TAKE NOTE IF YOU WANNA LOOK GOOD AND HAVE THE COOL KIDS KNOW YOU’RE IN NEW GEAR. AS FAR AS HOW IT LOOKS, YOU CAN ACTUALLY JUST SEE IT IN PICTURES.

IT HAS POCKETS. LOTS OF EM. THE MOST EXCITING WAS THE PASS POCKET SINCE MEADOWS INSTALLED THOSE AUTO SCANNERS THIS YEAR AND IT MADE THAT REALLY EASY TO USE. THE MAIN POCKETS ARE BIG ENOUGH TO FIT A BEER IN EACH AND THE BEST PART! THERE IS A PLASTIC-LINED POCKET IN THE INSIDE OF THE CHEST THAT, I SHIT YOU NOT, MAGICALLY HOLDS ON TO MY IPHONE. I SWEAR I WOULD HAVE LOST THAT THING LIKE 5 TIMES THIS YEAR (I ‘GRAM A LOT OK) IF IT WASN’T FOR THAT PLASTIC. OH AND THERE’S A GOGGLE BAG INSIDE WHICH IS KINDA REALLY USEFUL.

ALSO, IT HAS AN ATTACHED HOOD. THIS IS A MUST IN THE NORTHWEST. IN OTHER PLACES I’VE BEEN STOKED TO BE ABLE TO TAKE OFF MY HOOD IF I WASNT USING IT SO IT DIDN’T FLAP AROUND. SO THAT’S THAT. THE ZIPPER DIDN’T COME UP EXCEPTIONALLY HIGH, AND SOMETIMES IT WOULD END UP IN MY MOUTH. I SUPPOSE I COULD FIX THAT BY CLOSING MY DAMN MOUTH. AT LEAST, MY FRIENDS TELL ME TO DO THAT ALL THE TIME.

THE INSIDE IS PINK AND WHITE STRIPES. IT’S KINDA PRETTY. I NEVER USED THE POWDER SKIRT (BUT IT HAS ONE.) IT’S WARM ENOUGH FOR WINTER IN THE NORTHWEST AND  (DEFINITELY TOO WARM FOR A SPRING DAY, UNLESS YOU LIVE SOMEWHERE WHERE IT STAYS COLD.)

HONESTLY, I LIKED THIS JACKET. WHICH IS WHY ONCE I GOT IT, I KEPT WEARING IT UNTIL THE SEASON ENDED. BUT SINCE I WANT THESE REVIEWS TO BE AS UNBIASED AS POSSIBLE, MY BIGGEST COMPLAINT WAS THAT THE ELASTIC IN THE CUFFS KEPT COMING UNSTUCK MID DAY. I MEAN SERIOUSLY, CAN’T YOU GET DECENT VELCRO!?
