Columbia Sportswear PH: The Importance of Trying Stuff
Ever wonder what makes ordinary people extraordinary? They keep on trying stuff. It’s essential then to have the right gear and equipment that can support their ambition.
Columbia Sportswear PH is a brand that believes in the science of Trying Stuff, and recently, I was privileged to witness some of Columbia Sportswear PH‘s brand ambassadors showcase their Trying Stuff lifestyle in an exhibit of photographs and videos.
Some of the brand ambassadors who shared their Tales of Trying Stuff were John Chua, Paco Guerrero, Paul Quiambao, Atom Araullo, Paelo Pedrajas, Manny Batungbacal and Rolly Magpayo. It was so inspiring to hear about how they brave extreme weather conditions and unlikely circumstances to reach out, help people and simply live their dreams.
Aside from the exhibit, Columbia Sportswear PH also featured a testing hub for two of its advanced fabric technology – Omni-Heat® and Omni-Tech®.
Omni-Heat® is the ultimate body heat management system for the outdoors. This thermal reflective technology helps regulate your temperature by reflecting and retaining the warmth your body generates, while dissipating moisture and excess heat to keep you comfortable.
Omni-Tech® on the other hand, provides unsurpassed waterproof and breathable protection. Omni-Tech® utilizes Omni-Shield® technology which prevents water from coming in from the outside, while 100% air permeable Omni-Tech membranes creates superior breathability that allows moisture to move away from the skin.

The truck just screamed “Try me!” to us and I did not let my stilettos stop me from trying stuff that night. I went inside the truck to take some photos! I swear, it did not feel cold at all, thanks to the Columbia Turbodown jacket that I was wearing at the time.
Columbia Turbodown — jacket on steroids. 😉
The Columbia Sportswear PH watch was also at the exhibit that night and is now available in selected Columbia and R.O.X stores nationwide, as well.
Now you’ll always have time for new adventures!
So, when was the last time you tried something new? Can’t remember? Let Columbia Sportswear PH motivate you to start Trying Stuff!
