Sport Chek Canada is having a huge sale with 40% to 60% off doorcrasher specials. I checked out the sale and a couple of winter jackets caught my eye as it is getting rather late into October. Save 50% on the Columbia Treacherous Descent Men's Jacket that was $159.99 and is now on sale for $79.99. For the women, this Columbia Varaluck III Parka Insulated Jacket was $239.99 and is now on sale for $119.99. Receive free shipping on all orders at Sport Chek right now.
The Columbia Varaluck III Parka Insulated Jacket is a long down jacket providing all the insulation you need to keep you warm throughout the winter. The insulation is made of 60% down/40% feather down and that is all packed in an outer nylon fabric with Omni-Shield, which repels water to keep your down dry. There is also an adjustable storm hood to keep your head protected from the rain and the snow. You can remove the storm hood when you do not need it. The jacket comes in four different colours with sizes XS through XL currently represented.
This jacket is all kinds of AWESOME being long, warm, comfortable, and it looks good as well. I price compared this jacket with other retailers: the same winter coat costs $249.99 @ Sail.ca and $174.99 @ Sears.ca (on sale). Columbia had the white version on sale for $124.99 but it is completely sold out.
The Columbia Treacherous Descent Men's Jacket has pretty much NO information available and I can no longer find this jacket on Columbia's website. It does have an attached storm hood with drawstrings and a placard in front of the zipper for extra insulation. You can also tighten up the jacket around the wrists to prevent additional heat loss. Columbia is known for making amazing outdoor gear and I enjoy their stuff. I currently own one of their jackets and it fits well.
Given that winter is just around the corner and many of us need a new winter jacket, I figured this was a great deal. Save 50% on your new winter jacket and enjoy the warmth and reputation for quality that Columbia offers.
