One of the big challenges of confirming a purchase is to test out the right size. Out of the four items that I purchased, the Adidas running shorts was a bit tricky in idetifying the correct fit in term of length, width and waist, only to realise the wrong choice when I started to compare with the existing ones at home. Anyway, I managed to exchange a better replacement size the next day.
Columbia Titanium trekking pants
The Columbia Titanium trekking pants, which will be worn in jungle possibly viewed by monkeys, is much more expansive than my office pants.
The Titanium also keeps one dry and comfortable – This moisture transferring technology moves and disperses sweat away from the body for quick evaporation, keeping one comfortable during physical activity.
Mizuno dry-fit T-shirt
Lai Kuan, a passionate lady trekker, shares with the U2runTrek eGroup about her shopping experience:
Yes, Columbia has some very nice clothing designed for outdoors which comes in SPF protection, Omni-dry feature, etc. The set back is that most sports gear shops in Msia carry many more designs and sizes for the guys but limited to ladies. Smaller sizes (especially pants) are hard to come by. I'd many a times left 'drooling' at the sight of the items but unable to fit in!!
