I made the mistake of checking the seven-day forecast, and now I'm all bundled up and doing everything I can to not leave my house this week. It's cold out there, and I'll take whatever I can get to help me make it through until April. If you do need to venture outside, though, gear from Columbia can make it a little more bearable.
Lucky for all of us, they're running a Winter Sale over the next couple of months, and they just kicked things up a notch. Items in this sale used to be up to 30% off. But from now until March 1, select items for women, men and kids are up to 40% off! That includes winter jackets, snow pants, gloves, heavy-duty boots, long-sleeve shirts, beanies, tights and even capes, with prices starting at $8.90.
I had to walk about six blocks from the bus stop to my front door last night, and my legs were frozen. The rest of me was bundled up in a parka, gloves, thick socks and a scarf, but I spent most of that quick walk wishing I had thought to put leggings on under my jeans. And let me just say that I really could have used something like this Ruby Falls Down Long Jacket. It's on sale for $239.90 and extends to the model's calves!
And when it comes to boots, you can't beat these Newton Ridge Plus II Waterproof Hiking Boots. They're available in most men's sizes (although some are selling fast) for $84 a pair. And whether you buy these or anything else, remember that standard shipping across Canada is subject to a flat-rate fee. of $7.
