Bonfire Crystal Stretch 2019 Review by The Good Ride
The Bonfire Crystal Stretch Jacket seems like a well thought out jacket, with one of the better hood to helmet fits I’ve tried, and has cool little features like the sweater type gators and the extra collar around the neck. It also has a good length in the torso and the sleeves were plenty long without being too baggy. With a price point of $219, you get a lot of features in a jacket that is insulated, comfortable and has a decent waterproofing as well.

Size Tried: Med
Weight: 108 lbs
Upper Chest: 32”
Arm Length (pit to wrist) 20”
Torso Length (collarbone to pant line) 18”
Shoulder Width 16” wide
Helmet: Smith Maze
Fit: Regular and a little longer than average. Nice length on the sleeves, and plenty of room to layer if you want to. It also has a stretch material that makes it move nice.
Construction: Seems to be well constructed and should be pretty durable.
Hood: The hood fit great over a helmet, better than a lot of other jackets I’ve tried, and had a great seal when I tucked in.
Insulation/Warmth: 80g body/40g arms. It has a nice amount of insulation, but when wearing the jacket it still feels pretty light for having so much insulation.
Waterproofing: 15K waterproofing, pretty good for an everyday jacket, just not great for the stormy wet days.
Breathability: 10K breathability.
Packability: Not a packable type jacket.
Overall: I think this jacket is well thought out, has a lot of fun features (sweatshirt type gators and collar, hidden pocket, fancy soft lining) and is nicely insulated. The fit of the hood was great, the jacket was comfortable and had a really nice cut to it as well. Plus it is a great price for the amount of jacket you get.
