Columbia Omni-Heat testing letter

So apparently I post enough about snowboarding and women’s apparel via Twitter and Blog to be contacted by Columbia Sportswear to test one of their nrew products.  Pretty cool, right?  I think so!

My first gut reaction was “Cool!  A free jacket!”  But I’ll have to admit I had an immediate 2nd reaction/hesitation… So my first response back to them was:

I would LOVE to participate in such a thing for you… but I’ll have to admit, my first question… IS IT CUTE?  Are there pockets?  Is it truly warm?  Can you wash it?  I’m all about forward function and FASHION!   (I know, you thought my first question would be “Is it PINK?”)

They wrote back right away:

“Thanks for getting back, Jennifer, and for agreeing to be a vigorous tester.  Only you will be able to answer those questions (well, I can tell you that it does have pockets!).  More info and the jacket will be on the way, and we look forward to your full and honest feedback!” 

So, that’s that… just got a letter in the mail stating that the jacket is on it’s way… so… we’ll see… I’m SO freakin’ curious which jacket they’ll be sending and if will match any of my groovy snowboarding pants!   However, I AM sure of one thing… it will most likely be in desparate need of a lil’ BLING!

Stay tuned…
