I recently headed out on a holiday through London and Iceland. As you can imagine, I was in need of some clothes that would not only be stylish, but layer, and travel well. Luckily, Bluffworks hit me up prior to my trip and offered to send me a few items to try out. I’m a big fan of their Travel Suit and Ascender pants, but I’m a jeans snob and felt their original departure jeans wouldn’t be my go-to. I was eager to try out their next generation jeans, and I’ll be the first to say…they’re the real deal.

I was really excited to try out Bluffworks new Field Jacket from the images they distributed and let me tell you…it’s as attractive in person. It’s super lightweight, water proof, and looks very smart. With a total of 10 pockets, 4 of which have zip enclosures, you’ll find ample room for storage. Which is exactly what I was able to do.
Each day I was out I was able to store a portable charger for my iPhone 11 Pro Max, my GoPro and stick, hand sanitizer, my wallet, spare batteries, and gloves. What was even better…it never looked bulky. In fact, I received multiple compliments on how stylish the jacket looked. One thing I love in comparison to say a Barbour is the length…it stopped just shy of my waist. A great fit.

Hopped on by Buckingham Palace today • Even the Queen was impressed with @bluffworks new Departure Jeans and Field Jacket 🙊 • They sent me some goodies before my trip and I have to say – their new jeans are super comfy and have little secure hidden pockets for valuables. The Field jacket is great for British weather and has tons of zipped/stretchy pockets for bits and bops • #bluffworks #buckinghampalace #england #travel #travelblogger #jump
The first generation Departure Jean just didn’t fit to my liking. Not that it wouldn’t be attractive to some people, but living in LA and working in the entertainment industry, I wear jeans a lot and wanted a slimmer line and stretch. Voila…that’s what Bluffworks did + they added pockets.
On a 14 day trip, I’d say I wore their jeans 10 of the 14 days. That’s saying a lot. The fit makes them look like slim cut designer jeans and the stretch means they’re comfy even on an 8 hour flight. Add secure rear zipped pockets, and even one in the left front, and you can walk around crowded cities feeling confident your valuables are as secure as possible.
I’m a huge fan. As you can see in this photo…I wore both to the Blue Lagoon ( I even had on a long sleeve Threshold Tee to Layer up )
