We continue to be huge fans of Bonfire outerwear. Techy without going overboard, eye-catching without being garish, and with a wide enough range to suit all budgets. If you want the best, look no further than the ‘Platinum Collection’, which includes the Bonfire Firma 3-in-1 snowboard jacket.
The Bonfire Firma jacket boasts all the specs and features that you’d want in an all-rounder. Its 20K/15K ratings might not pass muster with the multi-day-tour splitboard crowd, but it’s more than enough for everyone else. The best part, though, is the versatility hinted at in the name.
“The liner can be worn on its own, making this a genuine 3-in-1 option”
Within the Firma is a removable fleece liner with moisture wicking properties. Its default setting is to be fully integrated with the outer shell, a substantial combo that has you covered in both the protection and warmth stakes. Zip it out, though, and you’ve got a lightweight shell that’s ideal for warmer climes. The liner can be worn on its own, too, making this a genuine 3-in-1 option.
Both the fleece and the shell have a good amount of stretch to them, so you get terrific freedom of movement on the mountain. The ‘Ergo’ fit is far from gangsta-baggy, but the relatively close fit won’t restrict you thanks to the material.
Riding with a spare lens is safe and easy thanks to the purpose-built interior pocket. The soft fabric prevents scratches, and there are two seperate sleeves so you can even take two. The attached goggle wipe is also pretty handy.
