Columbia is Hooking You Up with a Special Deal!


Alrighty, folks!

Ready for a recap of the Outdoor Retailer Show?

Well, you’re going to have to wait a couple days. I am still recovering from the show and organizing all my wonderful discoveries.

There was so much to see and take in. Great new products are coming out in the near future and I can’t wait to share them with you.

Since I don’t have a recap for you I do have a special treat.

Columbia was kind enough to let you in on an exceptional deal.

They are the inventors of the Omni-Freeze Zero technology that is spreading across the country like wildfire.

Omni-Freeze Zero is a technology in garments that cools you the more you sweat.

“Blue rings of cooling polymer cover the garments, which swell when exposed to moisture — letting air pass around you as if you had goosebumps. Unlike typical compression garments, which wick the sweat away from you, this puts your natural resources to good use, so much so that the company believes it’s cooler than taking your top off entirely. The futuristic gear will also turn up in a new range of footwear, but before you can get too excited, there’s a catch; it isn’t due to hit stores until next year, so you’ve still got a few months of getting sweaty.”

The products wont’ be available until Spring 2013 but for a limited time consumers have the opportunity to purchase 3 shirts each at an exceptional price.

I have the priviledge of offering coupon codes to 3 people.

That’s right!

3 people have the chance to purchase 3 Omni-Freeze Zero shirts each.

Woo hoo!

That’s pretty exciting, right?

I haven’t had the chance to use the Omni-Freeze Zero shirt, yet (it arrived the day I left for the show. Boo! ), but I did have a chance to use the sleeves and I can tell you that the technology works. My arms were nice and cool as I ran around the show.

Thank you Columbia for providing the coupon codes for the Omni-Freeze Zero shirts. All opinions and comments expressed on this giveaway are my own.




  1. These shirts look like they would be awesome for rock climbing and cross fit! Our CF box doesn’t believe in AC – so this summer, we’re definitely feeling the sweat!

    Can’t wait to see the OR wrap up. My gear geekyness loves this time of year. 🙂

  2. And we already like you (on FB too)!

  3. Tweet sent! 🙂

  4. I live in Florida, it’s summer, I’m melting. I’d use that shirt while out kayaking and sweating to death here in the humid heat. It would be perfect! You sweat down here just walking to the car, let alone out on rivers or the inter-coastal paddling for half a day!

    As the famous T-shirt states, “Florida. Like hell, only hotter.”


  5. It is hot in Northern CA right now and I would use it for our weekend adventures to Lake Tahoe, Yosemite, and Folsom where I know I will work up a sweat!

  6. Oh this would seriously be great when out hiking or camping

  7. ‘Like’ you on FB – Jill Lear

  8. Me!!! Id like to wear it Hiking in the 100 degrees that is Salt Lake City right now!

  9. David Kershner says

    I’m taking my kids backpacking in Big Bend National Park, and it’s gonna be hot. I’ll probably have to carry my 3 year old son, so I need to be cool!!

  10. David Kershner says

    FYI – I liked you on facebook AND I tweeted!

  11. It’s pretty simple. I hate be hot but I love being outside and staying active!

    and “Liked” on Facebook!

  12. I live in southern AZ and work outside for a living. These would make excellent under shirts during the insane heat we deal with here.

  13. Omni-Freeze Zero will help keep my wife cool and happy while we’re out hiking and running together… anything to entice her outside in the summer is a blessing. Thanks for this opportunity.

  14. Katie Wewer says

    UT Desert hiking with my sweet baby.

  15. Backpacking with my little honey badger in the Southern California mountains is brutal this time of year, especially for a family of sweaters, so anything that can keep me and my wife cooler (and him happy that we’re moving) is a huge plus!

  16. Would be awesome backpacking or biking.

  17. Already following you on fb.

  18. Sent out tweet.
