Visited the newly opened flagship store of Columbia Sportswear at the North Wing, Entertainment Mall of SM Mall of Asia. There were numerous outdoor gear and apparel that I would love to get for myself at the fully-packed  store but here are my Columbia favorites.

Classic Outdoor Tote Bag

This very sturdy tote bag is perfect for me, who always carries her entire house whenever she’s out. A good bag to use when you’re at the beach since it has a roomy compartment and it’s also sand resistant because of its material

Omni-shade Sun Deflector Shirt

I love wearing t-shirts and living in a tropical country, wearing a shirt can sometimes be uncomfortable when it gets too humid.  This shirt from Columbia was produced with a technology called Omni-shade wherein it repels heat rays, so you’ll feel cooler even when you’re under the sun. Its stretchy material is so comfy and light, it’s perfect for outdoor activities and wearing in the gym.

Watertight Trek Jacket

It’s a hassle to carry a jacket with you sometimes but this Columbia Watertight Trek Jacket is very light and compact that bringing it with you won’t be an inconvenience. It has the Omni-Tech feature, which means it’s waterproof and breathable. I especially like this jacket’s color that’s why it made it in the list.

Runner up… Columbia Sandals

If I can wear flip flops all the time, I would. These sandals are very light weight but durable. I’d surely enjoy wearing these at the beach.

All of these are available at Columbia’s flagship store in SM Mall of Asia. Here are a few photos that I’ve taken during the opening.
