"0o TO 60° IN 5 SECONDS." -Tim Boyle, President,Columbia Sportswear My mother's a speed freak. That is, she likes to change parka configurations faster than Mother Mother Gert Boyle, Chairman Nature can change her mind. Mom believes that if the elements can go from sunny to crummy in a few seconds, you need a parka that can adapt quickly. In fact, this Bugaboo ParkaM may be the fastest weather adapter ever designed. It's been known to go from fully lined parka to wind/rain resistant, lightweight shell in two seconds flat. To shift into the cool weather mode, simply zip out the MTR FleeceTM liner and wear it separately. Then, when rain threatens, downshift with the windproof/rain Columbia resistant Bergundtal Spts Co Cloth'" shell. And when the weather turns nasty, kick into maximum over drive-shell and liner combined for the ultimate in protection. Satisfied that the Bugaboo Parka will protect you from 0° to 60°? Good. 'Cause Mother's got me on the fast track to choose some new colors. 6600 N. Baltimore, Portland, OR 97203. For the dealer nearest you in the U.S. and Canada call 1-800-MA BOYLE.
