Columbia’s Innovative Omni-Heat® Electric Brings Home Two Awards

We are excited and blushing a bit at the recent awards we received from National Geographic Adventure and Outside Magazine. Check it out.

The Bugaglove Max Electric™ was honored with National Geographic Adventure’s “Gear of the Year” Award.  This is the first time Columbia has made their list, and their crew enjoyed the steady heat from the gloves in subfreezing temperatures.  They also noted that the Omni-Heat reflective lining kept them extremely warm even when the power was turned off.

The Circuit Breaker™ Softshell was awarded Outside Magazine’s Radical Design Award, which we think is pretty radical.  Appearing in the upcoming Winter Buyer’s Guide, Outside’s editors were impressed with the soft flexibility of the heated coat that kept their reviewers “toasty” for hours. Thank you Outside and stay toasty.

Yes, these awards boost our ego, but more importantly, they boost our passion for trying stuff.
