For many, one silver lining of the coronavirus lockdown was rediscovering the joys of the great outdoors — from daily walks in the local park to weekend hikes and rural staycations as restrictions began to ease.
Experiencing the beauty of nature is a salve for uncertain times, and that doesn't need to end just because summer is over. At least, not if Columbia Sportswear has anything to do with it. Whether you're climbing a remote mountain or undertaking an urban adventure right here in London, this brand has all the gear you need to do it in comfort and style. And right now it's giving one lucky Londonist reader the chance to get suited and booted for free.
The winner of our competition will take home a bundle of Columbia Sportswear gear worth a whopping £250. There's plenty to choose from, too: opt for a cosy and versatile bomber jacket from the Urban Outdoors range, NYC street-style inspired sneaker boots, technical hiking boots from the much-coveted Facet range, or even Omni-Heat 3D technology garments for those really chilly days.
What's more, all Londonist readers can nab a massive 30% off Columbia Sportswear in-store at Columbia Carnaby and Columbia Kensington. Just present the code LONDONIST30 to your cashier at checkout to redeem.
